We’ve been calculating numbers (Wenny’s a bit of a nerd so she’s been having fun), but we’ve figured out we could add one more color so we did! Here were the final choices that Kickstarter backers could choose from and what we will start our online store inventory with! If you missed out on Kickstarter, you unfortunately do not get the Kickstarter deals BUT you can still place orders through us. Just shoot us an email!

We are down to the last hours of our Kickstarter campaign! We are ecstatic from all the support and feel absolutely blessed. We’re ready to launch 6 Legged Tees. Thank you so much for all your pledges, facebook likes, tweets, and messages! We won’t lie. We’re a little nervous because we’re new at the whole running your own business thing, so keep your suggestions, encouragements, and advice coming (we’ll even take your critiques because we want to make everything even better).
There have been lots of rumblings in the news recently about how the mild winter will mean major bugs this summer (USA Today). We’ve loved this warmish winter, but we are nervous to see what nasty lil critters will be out in the summer. We’re really pumped to have a 6 Legged Tee to you by then so that you’ll be ready for those insects!
After the campaign closes, we’ll be crazy busy working on getting these shirts out. But just because the Kickstarter is over, it doesn’t mean that we’re done. We plan on keeping you updated with the progress of our shirts and business through video updates and blog postings. We are planning on opening an online store and offering even more shirts and maybe other things too! All this is possible because of you. Thank you so much again!
Things have been somewhat hectic around 6 Legged Tees. We’ve only got two days left to our Kickstarter campaign, and we’re so thankful for every backer. Our backers have been busy helping us pick shirt materials and colors. We thought we’d give you a peek at where the current color votes are. Right now we’re over 300 shirts sold but not quite 400 so our backers get to pick 1 tri-blend color and 2 cotton colors. The results so far are below! What color would you want? If you want a vote, just go to our Kickstarter and back us!
2nd Tri-Blend Color
Cotton Colors (Top 2 get picked)
Wow, the last 50 days flew by, and we’re down to the final week of our Kickstarter campaign. Again, we can’t thank you enough for your support!
Our marketing department (ok, it’s just James and Wenny again) has been hard at work. We were listed as a “survival gadget that would impress MacGyver” and a “gadget that would make you look like Chuck Norris, Bear Grylls, and James Bond combined” on CNN Go .
We were also featured in Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet! Take a look. Our segment starts around 9:48.
Thanks for helping us spread the word about 6 Legged Tees. We’re excited about our first batch of shirts, and we know that with your new shirt, you will be ready for summer and all the bugs.
So after a month of our Kickstarter campaign, we have reached our goal, and we’ve still got another month! So don’t forget to tell all your friends and family about 6 Legged Tees. We’re gearing up to potentially offer more types of shirts. We’re not only looking at adding colors but also more product offerings such as v-necks, long-sleeves, and dri-fit. We’re realizing quickly that this summer is going to be buggy (Wenny already got her first mosquito bite of the year). We want to make sure everyone can avoid bug bites while looking great!
Here’s what people have been saying about us. Let us know if you’ve heard anything else.
Gear Culture- “Fed up with pesky insects ruining your outdoor experience? Thanks to 6 Legged Tees, you’ll keep the bugs away while staying in style.”
Gizmodo- “Because this is just too awesome an idea not to become a success.”
Tee Gazette- “Nothing ruins a good time like flies or mosquitos or any bugs really. 6 Legged Tees agrees”
Uppgrader- “Sometimes an idea comes around that’ so great and so obvious that you can’t believe you didn’t think of it yourself.”
