About

CORPSE CORPS POP-UP, a Kickstarter Exclusive!

Welcome to our Kickstarter Pop-Up! For the length of our 30-day campaign, we are offering first time ever products from our upcoming SS'14 line PLUS a few exclusively curated products for this Kickstarter as rewards options. 

Yes, that's right...you GIVE, you GET. 

Our handpicked SS'14 faves + curated products will be delivered well below retail cost. We have tight limited editions and runs, so please don't wait to grab anything that speaks to you.

What is CORPSE CORPS?

Corpse Corps is a skateboarding + lifestyle brand that functions as an art collective cranking out well-designed skateboards and apparel in New York City. 

Our work focuses on graphic design, illustration, typography, and painting, and we like to create things our way. In collaboration with a great network of artists, we incorporate a realistic level of grit in our graphics, with a strong attention to detail in the production of our boards and clothing. 

Our current line of skateboards have an innovative coffin shape with an old-school feel. The coffin-shaped deck harkens skateboard designs of an earlier era, when skateboarding was less competitive, more individualistic, and was grounded in a culture synonymous with creativity (i.e. the DIY mentality that drives subcultures like punk, comic books, graffiti, exploration). Our dual-tailed fully functional skateboard decks (32x9.25” & 32.5x10”) are made from 7-plies of American Maple with heavy black + white illustration graphics. Our Corpse Corps gear is created in small runs of the finest quality fabric and fit, printed in the NYC area. 

We have established a strong distribution base in independent skate shops and boutiques in NYC, California, and cities scattered across the US. We are now advancing from a boutique-centric skate and apparel line offering cotton garments and uniquely-designed boards to a quality line of goods for our SS'14 season, which will enter the brand into a more demanding and exciting world within street wear and lifestyle.

SS'14

Our funding goal will allow launch our SS'14 line. Money will go towards producing fabricated headware with visible interior labeling and leather accents; a new list of artists and designers; our first-ever varsity jackets, with attention to stitching, fit, and material; and new deck variations, incorporating into the coffin-shaped quiver a more customary popsicle shaped skateboard, adorned with Scum Bag graphics by Charlie Marks, our friend and illustrator who passed away recently.

With all our experience on the subject, learning by doing, experimentation, and our lust for something farther and deeper than ever before, we ask YOU, on this cold winter day, to please set us free by contributing.

REWARDS FULFILLMENT + PRODUCTION PLAN

Shipwrecked + DIY Board

Edouard Guiounet, an amazingly talented French tattoo artist, specially designed the “shipwrecked” graphic for our 32”X10” 7-Ply American Maple coffin boards on a commission basis. Just look at the detail-work! For the blank “paint-it-yourself” coffin panel deck we will press, sand, and heat transfer the print on your board. Send us a picture of your hand-painted board and we will post it on the website! Both boards will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion.

POPSICLE-SHAPED BOARDS

For this Kickstarter, we will produce our first ever popsicle-shaped skateboard design. First out of the gate is the “scum bag” graphic drawn by the late Charlie Marks. This 8.5”wide skateboard is the key in opening up a broader appeal for the Corpse Corps' popularity amongst the core skate scene. These first pressings will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion. Get in on one of these ‘dead sleds!’

VARSITY JACKET

Corpse Corps has been able to lock in a great circle of people to produce their more intricate ventures into soft goods and apparel, such as the Corpse Corps high varsity jacket, available as a Kickstarter exclusive in it’s conception and initial release this season! Drawn by founder Jordan Walczak, the monochromatic werewolf-graphic’d garment features simulated leather (shout out to the vegans), a wool exterior with super-warm lining, and great detailing and labeling. The jackets will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion, in sizes Small through Extra Large.

5-PANEL HAT

Great attention to detail has been placed on the subtle additions and enhancements we can make to preexisting trends--for instance, our custom-fabric "space the place" 5-panel hat. Using the shooting skulls motif (also found on the pocket of our black pocket-T), we designed a nicely fitting 5-panel with a unique pattern. The cap features a genuine leather strap and brass facet. Lining the interior stitching is an understated custom piping of the “Corpse Corps” logo. The hats will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion.

BEANIES

We have expanded our production and variations of winter beanies for this upcoming seasonal release. Due to the solid reception from customers with our previous releases, we have secured a great American military-grade provider, and will offer the season’s themed graphics to our Kickstarter supporters first! Available in a couple of colors, the thick skull-caps are adorned with a variety of black and white Corpse Corps emblems. We are also expanding this arena into more specific customization, offering knit pom beanies with Corpse Corps woven text. The beanies will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion.

SWEATSHIRTS + HOODIES

To function in the echelon of lifestyle brands and collectives that we aspire to, we will be refining the fabric and production processes used in creating our soft goods. We have spent the winter sourcing new cotton distributors to make crew neck sweatshirts and hoodies with the maximum level of comfort and desirable fit. Our brand new and improved 100% cotton 40 singles face yarn fleece hoodie is made from extremely soft, premium lightweight fleece and has a slim fit, completed with a jersey hood liner, flat draw cord, nickel eyelets, and 1x1 ribbing in the cuffs, waistband and pocket openings. Our 8.5 oz. fleece crew neck sweatshirts are a 80% cotton 20% polyester blend fleece with split stitch double needle sewing on all seams and twill neck tape. The new styles (Shipwrecked, Scum Bag, CC High) will be exclusively rewarded and delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion.

T-SHIRTS + BASEBALL T’S

We are going to be producing a huge array of graphic-adorned shirts (T shirts + baseball T’s) with the nicest, best fitting material we can get our paws on. Our tailored-fit soft goods receive screen printing locally in the New York City area, some underneath of a skate bowl and some in the heart of Bushwick. (We know where our products come from, and handle them through each stage of the production process manually. That’s how we can assure the best attention to detail, proven by our intricate illustrations, interior printing, and double-screened, blended cotton/poly shirts.) We don’t make your usual cardboard logo-T’s. These shirts will be delivered to contributors 6-8 weeks after campaign completion, in sizes Small through Extra Large.

Risks and challenges

It's not hard to get it up. No, thats not the problem. Stop asking if that's the problem. Just, once it's up, it's getting a little tough to keep it up, and maybe, try something new from there, you know?

___________________________________________________________________

We took a BIG risk just to get this far.

We are out here, in touch with the industry, maintaining pace each season with the conglomerate companies--conceiving, designing, producing, promoting, distributing, and expanding.

Our issue is not with ideation. We have been growing out catalog of products and expanding our network of graphic designers every season.

Our issue is not with the origin of our products. We source only the best 100% American Maple for our skateboards, and offer great products like our shirts, beanies and sweatshirts assembled here in the New York City area. We have our factories dialed in, and our garments up to snuff.

Our issue is not with management. We have been able to produce seasonally and supply our numerous online and retail outlets, as well as reinvest profits into new initiatives, products, and events.

Our issue is not with customer interest. Who isn't hyped on a city brand creating new spins on savage black and white graphics and old school skateboards? Next question.

Our issue is with EXPANSION. This has been our biggest challenge: Rapid growth. We must come to develop the arms and legs of our entity beneath us--larger and stronger than before. Which is why we have turned to YOU, the Kickstarter community, for your love and support.

If we are funded through Kickstarter, our biggest obstacle will be getting all the products out in a timely manner. However, we have carefully figured out product availability, as well as timing for shipping and handling, and believe May is a fair estimate for delivery. If we run out of limited edition rewards options because even MORE people donate than anticipated, we will add try to add more rewards tiers and deliberate production and delivery timing from there.
