Hello Kickstarter Supporters,
Thank you so much for checking out our project. We know that mosquitos might not be on your mind quite yet because it's the middle of winter, but we're really hoping that we'll get shirts ready for this summer that will allow us to keep bugs away in style!
This might sound too good to be true, but don't worry, you're not dreaming. Since we love going outside and also really hate bugs, we wanted a simple solution for avoiding those pesky six legged creatures. Fortunately, we discovered Insect Shield®. Using a patent-pending technology to bind permethrin to clothing, it provides effective, invisible, odorless, and built-in protection against all sorts of bugs. The treatment lasts for 70 trips through the laundry machine. (See video below for an introduction to Insect Shield technology
Although we'd take a plain ole t-shirt any day if it kept bugs away, we really wanted a shirt we could wear that would be effective at repelling insects AND stylish. We searched all over looking for shirts to fit our needs but couldn't find anything! So we took matters into our own hands and started 6 Legged Tees.
We went with American Apparel's Tri-Blend t-shirt for a super comfy tee that would look great on anyone. We are printing designs by hand silk-screening each shirt using organic inks and ensuring our processes are good for the planet. We also strongly believe in giving back so once we launch our online store, we will be donating a portion of our proceeds to a worthy cause (most likely partnering with a non-profit who is working to eradicate malaria).
Here are our designs that you will be able to choose from:
You can also pick a shirt with just our logo on the sleeve. As for sizes, you'll be able to purchase kid sizes (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12yrs) and adult sizes XS-2XL. You may be wondering if we offer our nifty designs and t-shirts in different colors. For now, we are only able to offer our exclusive grey tri-blend shirt, but for every 200 (UPDATE: 100) shirts purchased, we will be able to add another T-shirt color!
While we've got a lot of the basics in place, we really need your help to get us going. Kickstarter was the perfect way for 6 Legged Tees to get started since we could raise the funds necessary to meet minimum order quantities and also spread the word about 6 Legged Tees. Shortly after the Kickstarter project, we will be able to sell 6 Legged Tees on our website.
In exchange for your support, we will be eternally grateful to you. Furthermore, through Kickstarter, you'll receive free shipping and the ability to vote for our next shirt colors (I like blue), designs, and styles (v-neck anyone?).
We are really sorry, but right now, we can only ship products to the U.S. (UPDATE: If you are from another country, and are interested, please contact us.) We are working on being able to distribute to more countries, but as of this moment, we can't. With some of our Kickstarter funds, we hope we can start selling shirts everywhere.
So get ready for new adventures with 6 Legged Tees and keep away bugs in style! To stay updated with the latest news, Follow us on Twitter @6LeggedTees and/or "Like" our Facebook page. Also, we welcome you to visit our webpage www.6LeggedTees.com.
