I have always thought of Ugmonk as a more of mindset or lifestyle rather than just another t-shirt brand. Early on I knew I wanted to eventually expand beyond just doing t-shirts and carry the Ugmonk design mentality onto other items. Sketchbooks were a natural progression as many of my customers and fans are designers and artists.
Finding the right sources to make quality goods takes a lot of time and searching. There’s no easy way to skip this step, just takes time and effort to get everything nailed down. I’m a very detail-oriented person, so honing all of the details can be a long process.
Can’t give away all my secrets Let’s just say, I plan to continue expanding the Ugmonk range even further, so be on the lookout for other new exciting products in the future.
Haha, not chaps but hopefully some other leather products in the future if everything works out.
Good question. Flying would be cool, but I’d have to say the ability to slow down time would be pretty helpful. Then I could get so much more done in a day
