Hi there, I've been going through all the posts and comments and if possible, can somebody please help me out overall.

1. Where can I get both my brand logo, and clothing idea's developed in a graphical format (like develop the concept in order to print etc)

2. Are there any manufacturers you recommend which offer high quality clothing.

3. Are there any manufacturers which specialize in custom designs (if I drew up a concept, will they be able to bring it to reality)

4. Overall, how can I get my brand started, (things such as packaging, company tags, copyrighting the brand identity etc).

Thanks for reading this, if anybody can come up with an answer which covers most and hopefully all of the regards, it will not only be helpful for myself, but also every other passionate people which are currently at the foundation stages.


Part of the organic process of a successful lifestyle brand is figuring out and learning these things yourself. If you have a passion for creating a brand you will hunt high and low for these answers.

Good Luck.

I originally owned a retail store called LGNDS in Salem, MA over a year ago. i had a full selection of skate/bmx parts & accessories as well as clothing lines like Diamond Supply Co., LRG, Play Cloths, Mighty Healthy, and more. I started producing LGNDS brand products (always paying attention to details - sewn tags, etc) and now that I don't have the store (long story) I've been putting a lot more focus on expanding the brand. We're in a few stores and have been doing very consistant online sales. Focus is clean & functional apparel with an East Coast vibe. We used to be able to see the ocean from our storefront so I reflect that in our designs. Some things I've done, am doing, and plan on doing below...all feedback is appreciated!!! www.shopLGNDS.com - twitter/tumblr: rickylgnds

i think american apparel is pretty overrated, especially considering the price you're going to pay. look into blanks buy gildan, alstyle, anvil, etc. find what you like best!

A client is looking for something like this as a sample

Tell me what you guys think.



its dope but I think the green color on the hoody is too far away from the camo green colors. Would be sick on blac. Did you print that? The hoody seems to have a nice fit, which brand is that?

thanks

We just dropped two new military inspired snapbacks online this week. The two colorways are "Infantry" (digtal camo/black) and "Ranger" (khaki/brown).

They fit great, are of superb quality, and are made in the USA.



Thoughts? Keep in mind the full run of these are already manufactured.

Hey everybody, I've recently started a gaming and internet culture inspired streetwear brand with a focus on subversion called "nope". We've collaborated with a couple big online artists in Mare Odomo and SecretCat. I also run a popular pokemon meme blog called FYPblog and I've released a couple pokemon-inspired things to draw customers from FYPblog to nope. We also hold exclusivity and packaging in high regard. We want customers to feel that they're getting something limited and exclusive - runs haven't even reached 100 a shirt yet, and we pack orders with stickers, pins, and packs of throwback trading cards. I also draw and write out messages on the back of each order.

Our flagship shirt is the ANTI-INTERNET shirt, meant to draw the viewer in, decipher what the shirt says, and then think about how it's virtually impossible to be anti-internet in the 21st century.


Another of our shirts was a subversive take on the 'Just Say No' anti-drug campaign of the 1980s spearheaded by Nancy Reagan, the shirt is called 'Just Say Nope' with art by Mare Odomo.


We also did a shirt that was inspired by the Missingno glitch in Pokemon, mainly to get people over from FYPblog, but the Missingno glitch was a storied subject in my elementary school cafeteria days and I wanted to pay homage to that - collaborated with Mare Odomo as well.


We've also just received our second generation of stickers, meant specifically to subvert advertisements on the street


And our next shirt which should arrive this week subverts the famous nike swoosh and slogan, called "Just Don't"


Detail:


So here's our website, nopeclothing.com - any kind of feedback on the shirts, stickers, website, or store is greatly appreciated! I'm super new so I'm sure I'll see all of you around on different parts of the forums.
