About

We are Ethan & Tristan, two brothers from Rochester New York. Ethan has a love for all things scientific and philosophical. Tristan is a digital artist driven to create. We like wearing t-shirts that are creative and expressive, but not offensive. We realized that such tees are hard to find. So, the idea for Slightly Edgy was born.  

Our designs seek to offer a mix of humor, history, and sci-fi with a dash of existential angst. They are intellectual, but fun. Edgy, but only slightly. The designs offered in our campaign were the top picks off our survey monkey. However, we have more projects in the works.

 If our Kickstarter goal is met we’ll use the funds to set up a Slightly Edgy e-commerce site and “Unleash the Kraken”, so to speak.

About The Shirts

The shirts are printed on dark grey heather unisex Bella Canvas 3001. It's 52% combed ringspun cotton 48% polyester. They are lightweight, comfortable enough to sleep in and are slightly more fitted then boxy. The tag has been removed and replaced with a water ink mark of our stylish logo. 

 The designs are printed at Tiny Fish Printing in Rochester NY. Each design uses water based ink. After one wash cycle, the image bonds with the fabric, creating a better look and feel. The shirts are folded and packaged in sealed plastic bags to shield them from dust and moisture. 

All sizes are available and you can find the full spec sheet of the shirts at the bottom of the page. We've personally worn and washed two of our shirts in black heather and are very pleased with how the designs have held up.

Our Rewards

Not surprisingly, the shirts are the main focus of our reward packages. We also have a hoddie, 4 buttons of characters from our designs, and a poster of Tea Party. We'll even be selling our designer into indentured servitude for your own signed custom shirt! 

The hoodie is from Independent trading co and is in charcoal heather, you can get to the specs here https://www.ssactivewear.com/p/independent_trading_co/ss150jz . The poster of Tea Party is  printed on 11x17in, 100# French Paper. The buttons are 1.25 in and the magnet of Tea Party is 2.25 in. 

Our best deal is the Early Bird Shirts Package that offers two shirts with buttons and magnets. There are only 50 of them, so get one while you can.

 For the Custom Shirt level we are creating a signed custom shirt just for you! Our designer will take any idea within reason and make you your very own shirt. We also include everything we offer including stretch goal rewards if they are reached.

Stretch Goals

 

 

 

Stretch Goal Rewards

These rewards are unlocked once we pass the budget goal.

 When we reach $10,000 stretch goal we'll unlock The Edgy Altercation shirt. This shirt will only be available for Kickstarter, we will not sell the same shirt on our site. It can be substituted for any other Slightly Edgy shirt.  

For the $14,000 stretch goal we'll hold a vote to unlock two of the four designs featured. Everyone who pledged will be able to participate. Also we'll open a poster for the glass design on 18x24 #100 French paper. The poster can replace the Tea Party poster in any pledge. 

Shirt Specs

Note

The featured apparel images are mock ups. The final product might vary slightly in color, graphic positioning, and the heathered pattern might be slightly darker due to our ink type. Our shirt colors, ink colors, and the brand of the shirt might change after Kickstarter. Rewards should arrive in October at the latest, but there may be delays if there are more orders than expected, or if the zombie apocalypse starts, that will set us back a bit.

Risks and challenges

We spent hours brainstorming ideas,and critiquing/modifying our designs. We also had transcribe our designs onto shirts with printer-approved colors.

We had to learn how to edit and create our own videos, manage email lists, and design and build our landing page.

We'll handle fulfillment on some of the lower tier orders and make sure our printing company has everything they need to handle fulfillment of rewards.
