It is a pleasure to welcome 604Republic, the latest t shirt brand to get naked.
Who are the people behind 604Republc clothing? Can you start by giving some background about yourself? Where you are from? Who creates the designs? How did you get into shirt design?
604Republic clothing was founded by myself in 2009.
My background is mostly entreprenurial as I also started another successful online apparel store in 2003 called SplitReason.com.
Most of the designs featured at 604Republic are sourced from a variety of talented designers from all over the world.
"This is what the rebels should have done with those stolen plans."
What process do you follow when designing a shirt?
Most of our designs are either sourced directly from artists or submitted via our crowdsourcing Design Gallery which you can see here.
Where did you get the name 604Republic clothing?
It's a play on the area code we're in and the fact that the word Republic represents a system that derives its power from the people.
"Saddled with hilariously small hands, obviously suited to only one thing, the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex often had to resort to a slap fight to resolve issues with its fellow t-rex. The result can only be called one thing: An epic duel!"
Can you tell me more about the brand 604Republic clothing?
We are Gear for Every Geek.
Our philosophy is that everyone geeks out about something and we aim to create unique apparel and products that cater to the things people geek out about.
What makes 604Republic different from other Apparel Vendors? What is your USP?
We're constantly working to differentiate our brand through both our products, the shopping experience and the content we offer our website visitors.
"In a world overrun with Zombies, even your favorite puppets can be reduced to mindless, writhing monsters that still want to play with a ducky."
What’s coming next for 604Republic?
Tons of new products over the next little while if everything goes according to plan as well as a brand new exciting addition to our website that will focus more on the community we're hoping to foster at 604Republic.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years both for yourselves and your business?
Too difficult to answer. There's a general idea of where we'd like to be that far down the road, but we like to focus on the near term for the most part.
"This alien operation clearly went wrong somewhere."
When getting your apparel printed what is the process that you prefer?
It depends on the complexity and requirements of the design. Screen-printing is still the most capable form of printing, but direct to garment can often be used if you're looking for a more muted look and an overall softer feel to the finished product.
What brands of apparel do you prefer to print on?
We currently print all of our t-shirts on Alstyle.
What would a customer expect when ordering a product from yourselves?
A high-quality product they'll enjoy for years to come.
"In a battle of minds and ideas, a Super Paradox Combo is a nearly fatal blow."
