It has been 4 months since we have launched our clothing line and we couldn't have done it without kickstarter! So first and foremost we would like to give everyone that has helped us kickstart our business a big fat hug and thank you!
Since our first campaign we have fulfilled 150 orders from kickstarter alone! Plus our HOUSEBROKEN website has been receiving tons of orders and our brand new etsy shop is taking off as well. We have also purchased a 4 color manual press, (with access to a ) 8 color automatic press for large orders all in the same shop. It makes us jump up and down with joy from all of the positive feedback we have received from all of our supporters!
Now we are ready to take the next step. We are anxiously looking forward to marketing more aggressively. We are also DYING to be a part of local trade/craft shows in our area. WE are missing out on about 5 a month because we can't pre stock large amounts of inventory. We are totally local business freaks and want to get involved :)
With your help we will be able to reach our marketing goal and have enough inventory for local and online sales for our new/old designs.
Who we are
We are Scott and Ashley, a married couple who are passionate about designing awesome clothing as well as giving back to our community. We became a business in 2012 and have been excited ever since. After achieving our first kickstarter goal 4 months ago we have been steadily selling shirts on our personal website HouseBrokenClothing.com as well as Etsy, and awaiting ouor final approval for Amazon. We are also currently setting our sights on trade shows and hoping to be a part of a minimum of 2 a month.
Why we are on kickstarter
Besides the fact that KICKSTARTER is awesome and we can not seem to get away from you guys...the trouble we're running into is stocking inventory. We are striving to have a inventory large enough that will allow us to ship large and small orders extremely quick plus still have inventory on hand for trade shows
Things to look forward to. How you can help!
This is where you come in! With your support, we would be prepared for all up and coming local trade shows and have inventory for new orders coming in plus back up inventory!
We also want to start venturing out into using some different ink! (Puff ink, Suede ink and glitter ink just to name a few.) The response we have gotten from previous HOUSEBROKEN purchasers has been amazing. We have had so many positive comments on the design, quality and feel of our shirts. We NEED to make more.. we've already started printing new designs but with our limited budget it's even become difficult to keep our prints in stock. Again, with your help we would be prepared for all up and coming local trade shows and have inventory for new orders coming in plus back up inventory!Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Risks and challenges
Honestly, its hard to think of many risks or challenges. With one successful campaign under our belt we are confident and ready to expand. We love our line and are extremely passionate about it. If you make it possible to meet our goal and fund our line.... WE WILL DELIVER!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
