Why we should always choose 100% cottons over poly blends & even fabrics made of recycled plastics....
While trends, technical features and great colorways have led most of the apparel industry towards using poly blends and tri-blend fabrics, we have to understand where these plastics will eventually end up during each wash cycle and at the end of their life.

This year marks the 5th year the Brigantine Farmers Market will grace Brigantine, NJ's island. It's one of our favorite events that we are extremely proud to have been a part of since it's inception. Below is the updated version of the logo we donated some 5 years ago. Looking forward to another great summer at the market and celebrating with all it's great volunteers and market goers!
Sadly the island foxes of Brigantine, NJ that have become a staple and unofficial mascot have been in the spotlight lately thanks to the public killings of their inhabitance. The state has made it aware that the foxes pose a threat to the long endangered and cared for Piping Plover birds that nest on the island and therefore found the foxes the lesser of the two, causing much public outcry. So in the wake of the local controversy and methods used to fix the issue (killing over relocating) we decided to help provide a medium we know best (tee's) to aid in the publics voice.
AC Seafood Fest 2016
This spring we brought on the newest member of the Mainstay crew which was a 2016 Sprinter 4x4 2500 v6 diesel cargo van. The idea was always to have a more efficient means of making our usual deliveries but to also help expand our farmer's market and festival capacities.
Although this summer we weren't able to build out the van into the mobile art gallery, we did manage to somehow pull it together the week before the 2016 Atlantic City Seafood fest.
Here are some photos from the build and first event. Looking forward to many more events and stylish order deliveries!
Thanks again to Jon Henderson of Good Time Tricycle for putting on another great event and letting us be a part of it. See you all at AC Beerfest 2017!
A new client, Yoga Soul of Princeton, NJ came into the print shop recently and we're really digging their design and garment choices!
Another great design by local Brigantine Firefighter and resident artist Paul Fuller came into the print shop this week for the Brigantine City Fire Department's 2014 annual golf tournament.
