Hey Everyone, 

To get right to it we strongly believe in the need to spend, shop and, buy local. As a Customer there is a Social Responsibility to shop local and, as a business owner there is a responsibility to provide customers with high quality products at a reasonable price to keep them coming back. too often is it the case where a creative makes an amazing piece of art and jacks up the price 30% just because it was "made by hand and made in america..."

Truth is very few of was want to/can pay that extra unjustified fee. 

Call us bad businessmen but, our goal is to keep you shopping locally. In order to get america's shoppers back, small business owners have to lay it all down on the line. But, when you are competing against foreign companies that pay ZERO dollars for labor it gets a bit tough.  We want  to change the expensive connotation that comes along with shopping local. However, unlike most we are not willing to sacrifice a quality for a low price. Therefore our prices are below the industry average however, our quality is above. 

With your funds we plan to produce a line of apparel and creative goods that promotes eating and buying locally. This idea can be be more than just a spring-fling. With enough support from backers we can add loads of styles and designs which will be available on our site and at our Central Market location in York, PA. if that time comes to be. your contribution will also alow us streamline our printing facility and enable us to handle large orders with ease. the funds generated will also go towards revamping our central market location which will help us spread our message of the importance of quality and spending locally. 

 artc Apparel 

After 2 years in the apparel business we chose to use alternative apparel as our supplier. Alternative Apparel is committed to a social responsibility of spreading equal rights and fair practices to an industry overrun with slave labor and a lack of rights for workers. Alternative Apparel has a strict set of guidelines for their factories and they check back to make sure their regulations are being followed. Alternative, actually found that their factories are cleaner and treat people with more rights then some of those found in america.

How We Make it. 

Each Design is hand drawn to give it its authenticity. We then hand Screen print the designs onto the apparel. We use Water based inks and chemicals through out the whole process to keep our local environment clean as well as adding to the already perfect threads as minimally as possible. Waterbased inks set in with the threads of the shirt rather then sitting on top of them that oil based inks.

More About us

The Name

If you have trouble saying artc, it is pronounced just the way it looks and exactly like the word artsy. Artc also carries meaning- a- Arthur (founders first name) r- Robertson (founders last name) t- Art, also symbolic of a cross c- Caleb (founders middle name)

The Vision 

Do Something with meaning, have a purpose. Be the change, be the difference. Might sound cliche but these simple phrases are what wakes us up every morning. 1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

Buy Local Coalition 

We Have committed to use York, Pa. as our source of all materials when possible. This means the purchasing of our packaging, signage, crafting materials and promotional needs, support businesses in the area. NO it does not mean we go to the local megastore and shop. It Means when a small locally owned business in york offers a service or product we need we use them before venturing elsewhere. You reap what you sow.
