About:Â Ugmonk opened its doors in August 2008, founded on my inspiration to bring simple, fresh designs to the t-shirt market. That inspiration began a year or two previous when, as a student, I started designing shirts for contest sites. After winning a few times, I realized there was a niche that my designs could fill. I graduated in 2008 with a B.S. in graphic design, married my high school sweetheart, and moved to South Burlington, VT.
My success at shirt design rekindled a dream to start my own online shop. It seemed like a simple enough idea, but I quickly realized there were a lot of pieces that needed to come together. After a few months of research and planning, things started to fall into place. After much brainstorming, I selected â€œUgmonkâ€ as a brand name (more on that later). With the addition of my brotherâ€™s technical expertise, we setup the Ugmonk store and blog, and then, finally, I had my first 200 shirts printed. There was no going back now!
We really didnâ€™t know what to expect, but the response was amazing. Lowercase really struck a cord in the marketplace and sold out within the first few weeks. Orders were coming in from around the world, and we started spending our evenings packing and shipping shirts.
As Ugmonk started gaining some recognition and press, we released our second hit shirt, And Then I Woke Up. It sold out almost immediately and has become one of the staples of the Ugmonk brand. Thankfully this wasnâ€™t just a dream that we were going to â€œwake upâ€ from. As we stocked more shirts and added more designs, our loft turned into a makeshift warehouse/packing center. Ugmonk was here to stay.
As Christmas approached, we wanted to do something special for those less fortunate. We ran our first annual â€œUgmonk Gives Backâ€ Holiday Sale which was a great success and allowed us to give Christmas gifts to needy children all around the world. We look forward to doing more each year.
Why â€œUgmonkâ€? For now that actual origin and meaning of that name shall remain a secret left for your imagination. It fit the bill for being unique, â€œgoogle-able,â€ and brandable. While we may reveal where the name came from someday, we want â€œUgmonkâ€ to become simply another way to say â€œgreat designs and superior service.â€
Our goal is to keep Ugmonk current and fresh, while providing top quality products and customer service. With that goal in mind, the rest of the story will have to write itself. Stay tunedâ€¦.
