VIBE CULTURE CO. began as, and always will be, an apparel company.
But as creatives, we never wanted to create JUST an apparel company. It’s always been our dream to be able to create apparel that told a story. This, is our story:
AS A BRAND WE WANT TO...
In today’s modern society, too many people have fallen into the trap of comfort.
PEOPLE BELIEVE THEY ARE HAPPY BECAUSE THEY ARE COMFORTABLE.
For some, comfort may be a part of the happiness equation. But for many, it’s an excuse to keep ourselves content, and for those who know, contentment is the enemy of progress.
THE TRUTH you’re already familiar with is that we only ever get ONE SHOT at living life, and so, it becomes our sole responsibility to live and use this gift of life to the best as we possibly can. When we choose to live a life of comfort, we place our need for instant gratification over our life’s hopes and dreams. And when we’re successful in doing so, we feel as though we’ve made the right choice...
We want VIBE to be a living proof of concept, for the people around us, that shows what it really means to dream, hustle, and succeed, all while showcasing that it’s possible at whatever stage in life.
It’s a little taste of that same harsh reality which spills over into our designs which give them the slightly rougher and harsher edge. Yet we still maintain the proper simplicity and design good apparel should have.
Here's a clip from our YT channel going into more detail on our vision.
The shirts we'll be printing on are premium Next Level long-sleeve crewnecks. They're fabric laundered and made of 100% combed, ringspun cotton. We personally chose to run with this shirt as its fashion fitted with a side seam and snug sleeves, making it not only insanely comfortable but durable as well.
We’re deciding to use KICKSTARTER as our platform to launch shirts, versus selling through our own discrete store, as it allows us to be more inclusive of YOU GUYS! Through KICKSTARTER'S community-oriented platform, we’re able to give our audience a much larger role within the development of the brand and keep you all engaged throughout the whole process.
Running a KICKSTARTER also gives us the freedom to pursue our desire for quality to the extreme. Crafting quality apparel requires ordering in bulk, something we wouldn't be able to do without your support! Reaching our funding goal will not only allow us to release our first two shirts, but will prove to us that there's enough interest and support surrounding the brand for us to continue expanding.
- SHIRTS + REWARDS: The majority of the funding itself will be used to uphold our promise in delivering quality products.
- SHIPPING: For those who we can't deliver our products to personally, this will cover the costs of shipping our products (including packaging).
- UPKEEP: To keep VIBE up and alive, a portion of the money raised will go towards future inventory and keeping our website (the future home of all VIBE products) up and running.
- FEES: Both Kickstarter and our payment processor charge fees as a part of their service and so that bumps up our goal by a fair bit. We're hoping all you lovely people make it worth it!
By helping fund this Kickstarter, not only are you contributing to the growth of VIBE as a brand and message, you’ll be investing in us as creatives. What we're doing here is only the beginning and the money we raise now is only going to allow us to reach further, and soar higher, than we ever have before.
Superior Ink is a local Colorado print and apparel manufacturer that takes an insanely purpose-driven approach to premium clothing. As a business, their dedication towards maintaining ethical production standards has not only been an insane inspiration/lesson for us in staying true to your beliefs but has made them the clear-cut choice for manufacturing here in Colorado.
It's been both an honor and joy to have the ability to be work with such talented and passionate individuals.
Domestic shipping within the US will be USPS First Class shipping and is provided at NO EXTRA COST. If you happen to know us personally, we'd be more than happy to deliver it to you in person :)
International shipping is a bit more difficult, but we still want the option to be available for those who are interested. While shipping internationally tends to be more expensive, the cheapest options we've been able to find have been through USPS at $10 to Canada and $15 for everywhere else in the world.

Risks and challenges
Handling other people's money is in no way a light task, but we can assure you with our utmost confidence that we are more than prepared to fulfill our word. Your support and trust are what make VIBE so much more than just t-shirts and we would never want to break that.
In order to assure both quality and reliability, we have selectively chosen our manufacturers, garments, and inks to be of the best quality we could source. Any delays that may occur within the production process will be immediately and clearly communicated to the VIBE community.
Over the past couple of months, the two of us have invested an insane amount of time, money, and effort into bringing VIBE to life but we’ve loved every second of it.
We hope you’re able to enjoy VIBE just as much as we’ve enjoyed working on it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
