50th State of Mind - a clothing brand representing the Art, Culture, Music, and Lifestyle of the 50th State, Hawaii.
Let's start off and get the whole understanding of what a Kickstarter Project is.....Basically we have 30 Days to raise $6,000. If we don't reach our goal we get NOTHING (dun dun duuun). Of course we would always love the opportunity to surpass our goal and really do something big ;) but that's only possible with your help! So what do you say!? Are you wanting to spruce up your closet with some new swag, while helping support a local Hawai'i clothing brand? If that's the case, then look to your right at all the great packages, you could get your hands on...
We had a successful Kickstarter project last year in which we were able to raise $6,000 for the brand, to buy printing equipment. Now it's time to have the printing equipment taken to the next level and really be used to the max. Your help with our project doesn't only mean you will be supporting a truly Local Hawai'i brand, but you will also get some awesome PACKAGES for being an Official Kickstarter Backer.
With this project we are simply looking to take our tiny little "shop" to the next level, for instance purchasing a conveyor dryer to upgrade from the flash dryer we have now. Possibly even an upgrade from our 8" vinyl cutter to a 24", there are a lot of things that are in need of an upgrade
The First project we did ended in Dec. 2011. What that project has given us the opportunity to do has been amazing. With the donations from the last time around we were able to buy MOST of the Screen Printing equipment needed to get the ball rolling on the clothing.
We do everything in-house from T-shirt printing to cutting vinyl decals. What we strive to achieve with the brand is to make everything ourselves. We are proud to say that over the past year we have kept that promise to ourselves and will continue that promise for the years to come. Every 50th State of Mind shirt is printed by hand in Maui, Hawaii.
So far things have been moving at a steady pace, but that pace for us is still not reaching what we know we are capable of. We're ready to work even harder and bring you things that we haven't been able to produce this past year due to numerous reasons.
We have things lined up to be released in 2013 and we need your help to move ahead and get these things produced. Such as...
- More Women's Clothing
- A Bunch of New designs
- Keiki (Kids) Clothing
- Hats (Trucker, Fitted, Snapback, etc.)
- Hoodies and Warm attire
- etc. THE LIST GOES ON AND ON!
With your donations, not only will you be getting some awesome packages, but you will be supporting local small businesses.
CHECK OUT THE AWESOME PACKAGES!
-ONE OF EACH-
Over the past year we have gotten the opportunity to take 50th State of Mind on the road across the country to places we couldn't ever imagined. Being that my sister is a musician we've gone everywhere from Mililani to Aspen, Pahoa to Pittsburgh. Along the way we have met some cool musicians and people that embody that 50th State of Mind

MAHALO TO EVERYONE FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT
Risks and challenges
Some challenges that may arise during this whole process would be getting the equipment needed to produce some of the rewards shipped out to Hawaii at a reasonable cost and time. I want to make sure that there aren't any people receiving their projects after the set time allotted per reward. To overcome these challenges I am going to make sure that every shirt and product produced meets the standards of our company each and every time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
