Give-Away #6: Bully Design Co. 4 Kids

Deanna & Venus are friends & co-owners of the new Etsy store, "Bully Design Co. 4 Kids." They screen-print onesies & T-shirts for kids, and make their own designs themselves, making them truly unique and custom clothing.

This past week I received what I would consider to be their "trademark" print, (in my humble opinion, that is!) the "angel wings" onesie.
And although I don't just yet have a little squirt small enough to wear it, I will next year, and absolutely cannot wait to put him/her in it! Afterall, what infant isn't an adorable little angel??!

The onesie is one hundred percent cotton and adorned with "Angel" printed on the front that also includes a small rhinestone for some extra "bling." But the best part is the back, which is embellished with some angellic wings! The onesies are available in short or long sleeves, along with a variety of colors, making it a great gift any time of year. I washed it in some baby-safe detergent to see how the shrinkage factor was, and it came out beautifully ~ just make sure to tumble dry low and only for about 5 -10 minutes. After that, I'd lay flat to fully dry in order to minimize shrinkage, as the onesies are one hundred percent cotton.

Here is a bit more about their business...

How did your business start and when?

Bully Design Co began almost a year ago as an artistic avenue for two friends/co-workers looking to make some extra money and also work with some fun ideas while learning how to make shirts professionally. We started out with some pretty bad sewing attempts, moved to directly painting designs on shirts with fabric paint and eventually learned how to work with screen printing. For us, [it was] the perfect marriage between quality, efficiency and creativity.

How did you come up with your business name?
100% credit can be given to one loveable American Pit Bull Terrier named Moki.

How long have you been making your creations?
Almost a year, but after several months of trials with sewing and painting, we soon found our niche with screen printing. We have been screen printing since February 2009.

What mediums do you use to create your products?
All of our creations are original; we draw out our designs, purchase the shirts, and apply with them with our screen printing set-up. Our screen printing set-up is in a corner of Deanna’s garage. We just turn up the music and go to work, one screen print at a time. We have so much fun!

Are your products located in any brick-and-mortar stores? If so, where?
Not currently; we are in the process of getting a business license and marketing our products to local boutiques here in Carlsbad, CA and around San Diego County, [though].

What sets your business/products apart from others that create similar items?
We believe that our dedication to quality and to preserving a wholesome image sets us aside from other mass producers or small venues. We try out and wear almost all of our own designs/products with family and friends before we sell them. We never settle for poor reproductions and are always looking for quality clothing to place our designs on. We spend a good deal of time researching rising trends in fashion and hope that with our design we inspire some of those trends ourselves. We also believe in customer service. We strive for 100% positive feedback from our customers.

Any other comments, advice or otherwise you’d like to share with your blog readers?
We are always looking for feedback when you purchase our items. The best way to find out what people want is to hear it from those who buy our items. We love to personalize each item when we can and hope that you will ask. Who knows, it might spark another idea. Some advice would be that if you are interested or curious in doing something, but have never done it or worry that you won’t succeed, try it anyways. We have had fun learning, trying, failing and sharing our successful products/designs with others. It is very satisfying to see other people enjoy what we can make.

In addition to their children's line of clothing, they also screenprint clothing for women & juniors at their original BullyDesignCo store.
