The Empire Strikes Washington DC Patches

Last year we had an idea. We thought, why not release some designs on patches and pins. Well, we did one patch (Washington DC Sunset Flag Patch) and people loved it. Unfortunately, we didn't follow through with the plan and haven't released anymore since.

Fast forward to this year. We have our second patch in the collection - The Empire Strikes the District. Like the first one this patch is limited (we only made 400). We won't make more of this exact patch.

Also, it can be stitched or pinned almost anything or you can iron them on - they have a special glue on the back. They are small enough to fit on hats but big enough that you can put them in the left chest of your favorite hoodie. 

Anyway, have a look and order one today.

Sneekis + East City Bookshop

We've been participating in the Maker's Market at East City Bookshop for the past couple years and it's been a great time. I absolutely love this little bookshop in Washington DC. So I was thrilled when they decided to carry one of our newer tees,  the "Read Books, Not Tweets." tee.

We've actually had a little trouble keeping the shirt in stock on our website (so check back if your size is out) - and East City Bookshop has been selling out pretty fast as well. So if you are coming a long way you might want to call ahead. But if you are in the area stop in and grab one (and maybe a few books too).

Wear a t-shirt like it's 1978

I know baseball season just started and we are pumped about that. But we've been largely ignoring basketball for a while now and thought it was about time we came out with something new. Washington DC basketball t-shirt

So here's our first new basketball shirt for the year...the Washington DC basketball 1978 champs shirt. It's a throwback style tribute to the last time a basketball championship was brought to the District.

Washington DC basketball shirtCheck out the print details. We added some distressing to the text and used soft inks for a vintage feel and look. Plus the soft inks won't crack and peel over time. These were printed in house by hand by my brother - so you know they look good.

We think (and hope) you'll love everything about this tee.

Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

The Bunny Box Vintage Trailer as seen in Virginia!

We ran into Tiffany on Instagram and just loved her little Breadbox vintage trailer so we reached out to her to hear more about it. Here is what she told us.

Old Vintage Virginia Trailer

“The Bunny Box” is an up and coming small travel trailer Rental Company located in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Restored to perfection, it’s a 1966 Decamp Breadbox Vintage trailer.

Virginia Air B & B Trailer

My goal is to provide memories, fun in the outdoors, while having the comfort of glamping it up.  Stay tuned for spring of 2018, as “The Bunny Box” will be launching, and will be available to rent through Airbnb. Please follow Instagram for updates @thebunnyboxvb and our Facebook page @thebunnyboxvb

New Virginia Script Hats - 100% made in the USA!!!

We are back at it again! After a short hiatus from our custom hat manufacturing experience, we've returned! Introducing the Black & Grey Virginia Script Snapback... and thanks to the help from our friends at Custom Snapbacks, this bad boy is 100% custom cut, sewn, and embroidered in the good Ol' USA. That's something our competition can't claim!  

We decided to test out something a little bit different on this one too. We've been wanting to try out the 3D Puff embroidery technique as it creates a very cool sense of depth to the design. Once again the guys at Custom Snapbacks really nailed it. The embroidery came out exactly as we designed it and the resolution is very crisp. We couldn't be happier! 

 This is a very limited run of hats (no really we only made 12), so if you want one you better grab one before they are all gone. And if you would like to see another one of our designs become a hat, leave us a comment and we will put it on our list.

The Best Washington DC Instagram Accounts You Don't Know About (Until Now)

Washington DC Capitol Building

We know there are some big accounts out there that every Washingtonian follows. I'm sure there are some great people behind those large accounts too (maybe even teams of people in some cases). 

Personally, we always look for the more personable smaller accounts. People who have passion for what they do no matter how large their following. On top of that, these accounts are amazing. 

Also, we will be adding to this list and featuring more accounts in the future. So if you think you know of an account that should be included, let us know!

Sneekis.com - 5 Star Reviews

We get a lot of great feedback from customers but we currently don't have a way to convey that on our site. We know there are some options out there - we will talk about those in a minute.
First we wanted to let you know there is a place you can see sneekis 5-star reviews. Check them out here on our etsy shop. We've had over 240 reviews and just about everyone has been positive.
These reviews are totally unbiased and unfiltered and we have no power to edit them.
Here's some highlights:

Sneekis.com reviewed
So why don't we have reviews like this on our website? Honestly, we have considered putting reviews on our website for years. There are some obvious reasons to include them. First, we would like to let people know we are a legit small company and so people who dig our stuff know they will get their shirt (you will!). Over the years, we have also had great customer service and a relaxed return policy. I think most people who have emailed us any concerns in the past can attest to that.

There are really two reasons we do't have reviews on our website. The primary reason is cost. Did you know plugging in a application to allow people to write reviews costs money? In fact, it's a monthly fee and will end up costing us thousands over time.Or we could hire a developer. Again, you can imagine how much this would cost. 

The second reason is that, truthfully, the reviews other online sites offer are mostly biased and skewed. The applications they use allow them to exclude negative reviews. So much for transparency. Even if we claimed they were totally unbiased, there is no way potential customers could know this for sure.

Etsy is a third party. They don't let us control reviews and you can see unbiased opinions from real people who buy our shirts. Granted many people just leave five stars (and that's nice to see) but people also leave great comments. So check out our reviews, ask us questions, and then feel good about buying a shirt. We know you will love it.

The Washington DC Empire Rebel Zip Hoodie

In a world where the Empire rules, where would you stand? This hoodie puts you squarely on the side of the Rebel Alliance. Just because the Empire strikes DC it doesn't mean we all have to succumb to their will. 

The hoodie itself is a light weight tri-blend. It's more of a spring time hoodie and great for layering in the super cold days. Not only is this our first zip hoodie ever, it is also our first small chest design (but we didn't make it too small). 

So check it out....and tell your rebel friends.
