Project Details

What We Need
  • Final designs for a predetermined type of promotional apparel (e.g., t-shirts, hats, shorts, other swag) or merchandise (mugs, pens, tote bags, etc.) provided in the high-resolution format of the Organization's choice
  • Note: Printing and vendor sourcing is not included
Additional Details

ManifestWorks wants to create a sub-brand, mostly because we try to protect the identities of those who go through our program. As such, our previous merchandising (T-shirts with our logo) don't really work. So we had an idea. . .
What if we took one of our brand values (Indispensable) and then graphically treated it graphically the way our logo is treated. Insiders would recognize the connection. We are thinking a trucker hat. . .

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have everything but the vendor., which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have lots of flexibility for ideas we love, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to provide pathways to living-wage jobs for those impacted by foster care, incarceration and homelessness

Indispensability is a brand promise our organization and our alumni make as they enter the world of work. We have lots of supporters and mentors and we want them to be able to share their enthusiasm with merchandising they can get behind.
