I have always enjoyed and appreciated maps and exploring. I was a little disappointed in grade school learning about explorers like Magellan, Polo, Cook and Eriksson who had explored an uncharted world. I thought I couldn’t be an explorer because everything has already been explored. As a result, I grew to enjoy maps, territories and geography.
A few years ago, I’m not entirely sure when, I got the idea of our original Nebraska Stately Design. A good friend of mine in Lincoln, NE encouraged me to slap it on a shirt. So I did and The Stately Shirt Co. was born.
I wanted to learn how to screen print our own shirts so he taught me. I bought some used equipment and supplies. Set up shop in our small 10’ x 10’ shed in the back yard and began to slowly grow, adding more Stately Designs. Iowa. Then Michigan. Then Ohio, California and Texas. Did I mention this time in the shed was primarily through the fall and winter of our first year! I was so thankful for extension cords and space heaters!
We continue to grow and have a larger work space now in the basement of our first home. We now offer all fifty states, Washington, D.C., and the United States of America on a variety of apparel types and decals.
Since opening our shop, there has been many late nights hustling and sweating. There have been moments of great joy and moments of wanting to throw it all away. However, through it all, The Stately Shirt Co. has not only grown in sales and numbers, but in a desire to help everyone show off their state pride!
