Who are we and why did we start Created Gear?
We’re two guys. That’s it. We both lost our jobs at different times in 2016 for different reasons and we each had unique circumstances that prevented us from wanting to immediately find another 9-5 job (and no we're not Millennials).
A big part of that was wanting to serve. We both have hearts for serving God. Not having a typical 9-5 job would enable us to serve our local church in a larger capacity than we had before. However we both recognized that we still needed to provide for our families. So we prayed and asked God for the means to do both.
And so we formed Created Gear. Why this name? Because we believe 100% of the Bible is 100% true. That means everything is created, including each person on this earth. And so we wanted to create gear that honors God. Not every shirt or decal is God-facing (most are!), but every sale is used to serve Him. As employees we tithe. The bigger we grow as a company, the bigger we want to give as a company. There are larger programs. ministries, and missionaries that we want to be able to support financially as a company. Human trafficking, homelessness, and child abuse are all bigger problems in this world that we believe needs more support, and we want to provide that support.
We value our customers and appreciate each sale we get. You’ll never just be a number to us.
We do our own stunts
One of our partners is a professional graphic designer for almost 20 years, so yes we definitely create our own designs in-house.
We use the best quality t-shirts your money can buy. All of our shirts are 4.5 oz. 30 singles fine knit jersey that is 100% ring-spun, USA cotton. The t-shirt is reactive-dyed for longer-lasting color and pre-washed to minimize shrinkage.
Our decals are personally prepared using Oracal 651 - we feel this is the best brand of vinyl available.
