Spicy Boys Club began as a joke amongst friends camped together at Dirtybird Campout 2017. To commemorate that crazy weekend, hoodies and shirts were made for everyone at camp. But once we wore them out in public, people began asking where they can join the club. The rest is history.
The mission of this brand is to promote good times and expand our love for house music, but more importantly for the independent and underground electronic music scene as a whole.
Despite the name, the club isn't just for boys. Part of our belief is that anyone and everyone spicy is welcome to the club. We promote diversity and acceptance for everyone, and want to make sure everyone that joins the club is aware of this important fact. Why? Because...
We dem Spicy Boys.
Since Spicy Boys Club is a very small company, there is only a small amount of inventory on hand, and orders are regularly handled in small production runs. This means it takes a bit longer than a normal operation to ship your orders. Inventory is limited (but growing), and everything is hand printed. And in the process, sometimes mistakes happen. Since the brand doesn't send out anything less than perfect, sometimes the production of your order is pushed back while waiting for replacements. Please allow up to 2 weeks from the time you place your order until the time it's at your doorstep. However, work is being done to get your stuff to you as fast as possible. As the brand grows, our turnaround time will continue to speed up. Your patience is very much appreciated, and will be rewarded with some awesome, spicy stuff.
One of the main focuses for the brand is to provide an outstanding product that is both comfortable and of high quality. This means that there are a few key differences worth noting. To start, the garments are all of a much higher quality than most tees on the market, made with combed and ring spun cotton so that the shirt has a soft feel, and also provides a better surface for printing, resulting in much better finished garments.
When it comes to printing, the ink of choice is water based acrylic inks. These are much lighter inks with a soft and smooth finish. We've all had shirts with thick plastisol prints that feel like you have a heavy piece of plastic strapped to your body, causing a nice big sweat patch that's oh so enjoyable. This ink alleviates that issue, making our shirts much more comfortable to wear.
With water based ink, you get a very light print that feels almost like there is nothing on the shirt. Water based ink is also a more eco-friendly approach to printing, as it has less hazardous chemicals in the ink, and also requires less harmful chemicals during production and cleanup.
Every printed product is made with love, screen printed by hand right here in Santa Cruz. This way you know that attention is paid to every detail, making the brand's products as unique as the city they're crafted in. With over 12 years of experience in the screen printing world being put into each piece, know that every item you get is going to have the best of work put into it. And if we ever do slip up, we'll always be sure to take care of it asap.
All artwork is created by yours truly, specifically for the brand. There is never any sort of clip art or stock graphics used in the creation of the products. It almost always starts with a simple sketch, then is refined and finalized on the computer to create high quality, high resolution artwork that will always keep the designs looking crisp and clean. Artistic integrity is highly valued by the brand, and will never be compromised.
