August Ink is a t-shirt and gift company founded by Andrea Daniel. Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Andrea designs and create products focused on finding adventures, big and small, and spreading some positive vibes while doing it. She thinks there is nothing better than a comfy tee on the weekend and believes in creating unique products with simple and beautiful designs.
What started as a new hobby and way to return to her creative roots, Andrea taught herself how to screen print and dove into the logistics of running her own business. August Ink officially launched in the summer of 2014 and started selling hand screen printed tees online and at markets around Colorado. Her designs quickly stood out as simple, refined and feminine without being too girly. In a world where Colorado flags dominated the scene, Andrea pulled from her experience growing up in Colorado to create designs that celebrate the spirit of adventure and the warm nature of the people who live here.
In a few short months, August Ink started shipping orders around the country, both directly to customers and other small shops and boutiques. T-shirts and apparel are still printed by hand in the company's garage studio. And each order is packed up by Andrea and shipped with care.
Recently, Andrea has began designing enamel pins, patches and other gift items. She is working hard to expand this line and is excited to create fun and unique gifts that are a fresh addition to the market.
