COVID UPDATE: We're doing our best to plan accordingly with state laws as they continue to change and as our local officials allow us to hopefully operate per usual to service our local businesses, summer events and charity events. We know this will significantly halt or hinder our usual offerings for summer printing and retail, but the tradition will not be lost and we're gearing up to have our online store up and running again soon. Stay healthy and be well!
Come out every Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day and check out the latest of the Mainstay Made retail line. Always lots of one-off apparel items, limited editions and handmade artwork. The Brigantine Farmers Market is located in Brigantine, NJ at Haneman Park.
The all new Jessie's of Linwood is quite amazing. From killer coffee drinks, ice creams, baked goods and a beautiful ambience, this place is a must frequent.
Creators of the Leadership Studio in Atlantic City, Grace and Glory Yoga, worked with Atlanticare and Mainstay Marketplace to create a ton of new yoga mats for the local yogi's and aspiring yogi's to be. Another fun project and cool way to spread positivity and healthy habits.
Send us your mailing address and the chances are pretty good you'll get a little something for your cooler, canteen, beach cruiser, car, whatever, you get the point. Get crazy and a S.A.S.E. (self addressed stamped envelope for you youngin's) and you're bound to get an even sweeter surprise.
Last fall we worked with one of our favorite customers, Wild Harbor Tri Club on designing their new tri-kit outfits from the ground up. We're pretty stoked to see the club members proudly sporting there club colors at all the events this summer from Wildwood, NJ and beyond. Awesome job by Wattie Ink on manufacturing them to spec.
Memorial Day 2018 at the Brigantine Farmers Market kicked off today. Was a beautiful start to the market season and thank you to all who came out to show your support and get some sunshine this morning! See you every Saturday 8am-12pm.
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.
