"Show your State Pride With State Shirts"
The Stately Shirt Co. began with a simple Nebraska design which came to me around 2004 and was stored in my mind for nearly a decade. In the Spring of 2013, something plucked that design out of the deep recesses of my memories and led me to sit down and put pencil to paper. The Nebraska Stately Design was finally a reality and I was able to show others something that was just a simple thought from years ago that never materialized.
After sharing only with family and close friends, I visited a good friend in Lincoln, Nebraska who 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. In the Summer of 2013 I bought some used equipment and supplies. We set up shop in our small 10’ x 10’ shed in the backyard of a rental home and began to slowly grow, adding more Stately Designs. First Iowa. Then Michigan. Then Ohio, California and Texas.
We continue to grow printing all our Stately Apparel and cutting all our Stately Decals smack dab in the middle of the United States in Kearney, Nebraska. We offer designs for all fifty states, over 30 major cities including Washington, D.C., and of course the U.S.A. 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. continues to grow in our desire to help everyone “Show your state pride with Stately Shirts.”
