Before marriage, before kids, before all inklings of adult responsibilities came into their lives as serious considerations, Coryn and Adam were just two young, punk-rockin’ teenagers in love. (Cue the “awwws”...) Ever since then, they’ve also shared a love of playing around with design and printing t-shirts, spending those early teenage late nights at Kinko’s making art with pens and scissors and tape and the Xerox machine. (So punk rock!) They’d squirrel away money and head to the local screenprinter with their designs, pining over the massive screenprinting equipment they couldn’t yet afford, and get a max of 25 shirts printed with their design. Then, they’d be off to sell them at local punk shows. Such is the life of a budding young punk rock designer. Or so we’ve heard.
Fast forward a few years into their marriage and Adam was managing a corporate screenprinting shop. He had started hand-drawing some illustrations of animals on bicycles, screenprinting them to wear on his 15 mile bike commute. It wasn’t until some consistent persuading from friends that Coryn put their shirts up for sale online and … Ta-Da! The family business was born. Of course babies and the rest of the adult responsibilities came along too, but the beautiful part of this duo was that they’ve made a successful business out of the same young love they shared at Kinko’s. And we can bet by now they can afford that massive screenprinting equipment. Yay, adulthood!< less
