Welcome to a brand new feature from Geek Shirts HQ. T Shirt Brand Undressed. This is where we interview the people behind the sites where you buy your favorite tees. We will be highlighting new brands and established ones. Lifting the lid on what goes on behind the scenes with the t shirt brands.
What about the people behind Saucewear? Who are they?
Saucewear is owned and operated by myself, Kelly Murphy. Sometimes I wish I had some little helper elves, but nope…. it's just me.
Actually, its the other way around. Tee Gazette came a few years after saucewear was launched.
Ok, When did Saucewear launch?
Saucewear launched in September of 2006 originally, but the re-branding launched in September of 2008, which is the saucewear you know today.
Where did the name sauce wear come from?
Oh, the folklore on how I got the name for my brand is out there, but honestly, the name just came out of some brainstorming between myself and my original partner, once she left the brand, the name stuck and it was kept.
Describe sauce wear in five words
An indie brand from Boston
What makes Saucewear different from other t shirt sites?
Yes, I have three new designs ready to go, I just need funding for them. Once I get that…. I'll print them up and release them. Hopefully I'll have more in the pipe before then.
What other interests and hobbies do you have when you’re not running your online empire?
Well, in the time that I have between working full time, going to school, running both Saucewear and Tee Gazette…. well… as long as I'm having a good time, I'm happy. You can usually find me on the beach during the summer, and I'll usually have a book (aka: my Kindle) in my hand.
Anyone you want to give a shout out to?
My posse: Manz from GritFX (@GritFX), Jared from Design Juices (@JThompsonDesign) and Crocktees (@Crocktees). I wouldn't be where I am now without them. They're great peeps and I love them like family.
