We did it! We have officially launched our first Kickstarter campaign. As you know from our previous blog post about The Ultimate Ugly Sweater, this sweater will not only be here just in time for fall sweater weather, but also for those ugly sweater competitions at your office Christmas parties.
Cheesin hard because I'm wearing the most awesome sweater ever. (This could be you.)
Check out this creative contraption! One of our customers used a belt scrap we sent him to make a belt rack. Many of the belts on this rack are JonWye. Glad to see our scraps are being put to good use.

I'm sure that many of you are familiar with our Cat Butt design. We have it in a shirt, sticker, and even an apron. NOW we present it to you in a sweater! We like to call it the Ultimate Ugly Sweater. Reason being, this sweater is sure to win the ugly sweater competition at your next office Christmas party.
So with that being said, before you can all have this awesome sweater we are soon launching a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds to make this project happen. Our plan is to launch our Kickstarter Campaign at the end of June, so keep an eye out for more details as the date draws nearer for THE ULTIMATE UGLY SWEATER!!

Please make sure the Jon Wye product is the primary focus of the picture. We don't want a picture of your crotch necessarily, but whatever it takes to get a good shot of your belt will do. Post pictures of your belts, dog collars, shirts, aprons, wallets, etc!
Dictatorial note: LOOK HAPPY! :)
Tag us in a photo THEN e-mail us at email@example.com with your shipping information and choice of sticker. (Check website www.jonwye.com for more sticker options.)
*Note: One sticker per photo.

I've given a number of interviews where I've noticed I tend to drift towards a common theme of not having pride and being willing to do what it takes to succeed.
This past weekend I attended the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philly. I went up early Saturday morning to sell our wears and had a fun time watching families stroll for mother's day gifts.
Often, I forget to document all of the happenings because I am so focused on selling, but once an event is over it's all about sampling the local food. We were told about the Han Dynasty Chinese restaurant. Ridiculously good food and nothing like the corner store variety.
That night I met my friend Hollis who happened to be in town for Wizard Con, where he got to meet Billie Piper and David Tennant. I was lucky enough to have met David Tenant at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre while on a college literature abroad. It was pre Dr. Who fame, but we all knew he was going places.
After a few beers I snuck back into the parking lot where I slept in my van. I had a cozy little setup with a sleeping back and blanket pad. I plugged in my laptop and watched "Get Hard." It was way better than I expected, especially for a drive-in, in-car movie.
That is not Gatorade... ANYMORE. I did say I slept in my van. It would have been no big deal to get a hotel room for one night, but I hate spending money to sleep some place for less than 8 hours. And that money I saved can eventually go to buying new equipment.
The morning of the second festival day at Art Star I woke up early after a nice sleep in the van and found this awesome diner (http://www.themorningglorydiner.com/). I got the Brioche French Toast with blueberries and cream cheese... WHAT!?! It was amazing!
I have no pride when it comes to building my company. I lived with my parents until I was 31 so that I could keep moving as fast as possible.
