Quality clothes with meaningful messages that inspire and last.
Each piece will contain three key elements; a theme, a Bible verse, and a word.(Pics below)
The verse and corresponding word will be placed on the inside and theme will be placed on the outside (Pics below).
The package will also include a short inspirational video individually created for each category. They are inviting for someone who isn't a Christian and deep enough for the theologian.
Here's how it works...
You hop on our website www.brandedbyjotto.com and shop by theme. Our themes are printed on the outside of the garment and represent life events we all have in common.
Scripture has been carefully matched with the appropriate theme. We have something fitting for any situation.
Your gift arrives in a high quality box.
You have a chance to include a personal message. The recipient will also receive a link to an inspirational video explaining the verse on their garment.
Your loved one has something they will wear for years and hopefully never forget!
We have carefully selected 12 high quality athletic tops that are perfect for athletes, lounging around, or anyone on the go! In order to hit a wide demographic in this first run we have selected a variety of timeless classics like tanks and jackets. Some are fitted and others are loose. So whether you want to run, cut the grass or simply look good doing errands – we have an option for you! The following are technical drawings of what our actual product will be.
What Kick starter funds will be used for?
As in any start up business the majority of our cost resides in our initial inventory order; clothing and high quality boxes. Our research over the past year has proven the box is an important part of the experience. It is also a gift they will keep and have the ability to put keep sakes in and also be a reminder of the loved one who cared enough to send gift. Of course we have a website, marketing and many other costs to consider. With Jessie’s ten plus years experience overseeing budgets and managing profit and loss statements we have spent that last year gathering the most accurate costs while being conservative and understand there will always be costs that are unforeseen. Lee and Jessie also have invested their personal finances.

More of our story...
Risks and challenges
Delivering the perfect experience for loved one is our main goal. With that said we are working very hard to address details pertaining to requests for personal purchases as well.
Money is always a risk and we know that things often cost much more then we expect. Another challenge is our manufacturing process, however we have partnered with an expert that has been working with us for the past six months. We have confidence in his experience and expertise to make this a success.
In addition, we are aware of the on-going strike in Long Beach, which is the port our product would be coming into. This has extended the delivery of many containers. We will be sure to continue keeping up with this situation and make the best decision for the business and the delivery of our goods when we get to that point.
