Founded in 1999, Coastal Tees was inspired by my love for the ocean, passion to travel, and my natural knack for making conversation.
I set out to sell high quality American made and printed T-Shirts to resort towns, primarily in coastal cities across the US. The concept was simple, yet unique; visit bars in the desired city and convince the bar owners their logo would look awesome printed on a T-Shirt inside a pilsner or shot glass.
With a little convincing (and a lot of pounding the pavement), I partnered with a talented artist and conceptualized the initial design. Beach Bars of the Outer Banks was the first market I opened. Although the design has evolved over the years, the shirt is still a best seller.
Now in 2013, I have over 50 markets and have expanded beyond beach resorts, to ski resorts, college & universities as well as many retail shops. My designs have also expanded and Irish T-Shirt concepts have been booming… Everyone wants to buy Irish shirts from a guy whose last name is Flynn!
I hope you take the time to check out the site and feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas you may have. I love to hear from everyone.
