Based in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Staple Design is an artistic force to be reckoned with. It all started back in 1997, when Jeff Staple – its founder and President – started sneaking into the 4th floor silkscreen lab of NYC’s Parsons School of Design. Night after night, he snuck in with his friend and a pillowcase of blank tees. It started with a 12-piece shirt order. 12 became 24. 24 became 36. It just kept snowballing.
From these early beginnings, Staple developed a reputation for exceptional graphic artistry and fantastic merchandising skills. They design and sell their own seasonal fashion collection, maintain their own retail shops, provide art direction for several groundbreaking magazines, and release a steady stream of insanely collectible limited-edition products with big-name brands.
