About

My Name is Rovinsky Charles and I am 24 years old. I am currently an up and coming Disk Jockey (DJ) and in the process of starting up my own snapback company which I do need help funding (snapsbycharles).

I started designing snapbacks during my 2 year stay (2010-2012) working as a sales rep for an up and coming clothing branded called “slowbucks”. They produced their own snapbacks which were not up to my liking. I shortly followed up with my own snapbacks and they all fell in love. I used my own personal money, contacted my own manufactures and redesigned the hat all myself. They loved it, clients loved it and from there it was history. Still working as a sales rep for the company I designed and manufactured small amount of pieces used for promotional purposed by the company.

Fast track about a year later (2013) with the company, I couldn’t legally design hats for them anymore, and also lost my sales rep position with the small line due to them being bought out by a major clothing company, “marc ecko”. This left me with a huge void to fill because I seen how receptive people were to my ideas, creativity and passion for making hats. Also in losing that sales rep position, I was solely making a living dj-ing. In the past year I have had some freelance hat work for clients. In total I have successfully helped over 10 different parties create and manufacture hats due to my reputation with “slowbucks” and the work I have done for them thus far. All of these clients have done great things promoting their clothing brands and pushing their clothing brands all with my help when it came to snapbacks. With this passion of helping people create snapbacks I decided to start my own line of snapbacks. This new snapback line I launched is called “snapsbycharles” (March 2013).

The first installment to the collection is the “Trippy C’s”. I have sold over 200 pcs up to date via retail stores and online (since Aug 2013 – Dec 2013). The Trippy C logo is a “play on words” for my DJ alias ( DJ Charles in Charge- ie the 2 c’s on the front logo) . At the moment we are currently sold out of inventory due to the busy holiday season but we have got a lot of back end done in the meantime.

Website is finished and paid for ( www.snapsbycharles.com) Designs are finished and paid for ( complete run of 27 colors ) Snapsbycharles is trademarked ( serial # is on file)

SnapsByCharles is currently in the process of gaining capital to mass produce its spring and summer line and also more capital to successfully push the business in the right direction.

Only thing left now is just to feed the consumer and sell more hats, put out those new designs and eventually become llc in the state of New York to run the business legally without any tax issues.

I would really love to get this hat out there as soon as possible, I will post updates asap.

Risks and challenges

We understand that obstacles may occur during the process of creating the line, but i am not one to fear hard times. The whole idea of continuing to make snapbacks was a great obstacles in itself but i have successfully started the beginning steps to creating a great snapback empire. When my position was lost in that other clothing line, that opened the door for me to start my own company and look where i am today. just trying to become bigger and better.
