I have huge news for all of you amazing fans today. I’ve been thinking about how to tell you guys this for quite some time, and it’s been really hard to keep this all a secret while I work on the plans and ideas that I have for the future. But I am both really excited and also really sad to tell you that starting on December 10th, Angry Spade will no longer be around. But please, keep reading…

Angry Spade isn’t actually closing down, it’s changing. We’re in the works of turning it into a completely new brand that is 20 times better than you can even imagine. I’ve learned so much from running AS for the past 3 years and now when I step back and look at what I’ve created, I just know that I can make it so much better, and that’s what I intend to do.
We can’t give you any details yet, but soon we’ll be able to start showing off all kinds of previews of stuff we’re working on. Once we have our new custom website all finished, then we’ll start revealing what we have up our sleeves. All I can say right now is that you better get ready to have your minds blown.
As sad as I am to have to tell you guys this, I’m so stoked to get to work on this new project! As always, if any of you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesatate to get in contact! You can still email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
On Saturday night (December 10th), well be taking down our online store, and start changing things. And of course, this means that you’ll only be able to get our shirts for the next 5 days, so make sure to grab anything you’ve been wanting before then, it won’t be coming back! I repeat, it WILL NOT be coming back.
As a thank you to everyone who has supported us, and who will hopefully continue to support us, take 25% off of anything in our store with the discount code ASISCHANGING
Thank you all so much, you’ve made this experience more than I could have ever asked for and I am so grateful to have spent it with you guys.
Peace and love ❤

We’re big supporters of people using their creativity and getting out there in the world and using it. Before I brought you Eternal Love and his record label, Third World Order Productions. Today I want to show you a group of kids ages 14-18 who started their own dance crew called TFKidz, they’ve proven themselves in battles and are said to be one of the best crews in the Midwest. They dance with a big mix of different styles including jerking, popping and break-dancing.
They contacted me asking if I could help them get to the next level, and I definitely want to try to do that. But it takes more than just me telling you they’re good, check out this video, and all of the other ones on their official YouTube Channel and spread the word! They need your help, and your voice to make it out there. Spread these videos, and spread this blog post to help them get known all over the place!
TFKidz are going places, and you don’t want to be the person who finds out late to the game and has no idea what’s going on. Do yourself a favor! =) Make sure you like their Facebook page to stay updated on what they have going on.
The only other thing I want to add is that I think its really awesome to see these kids outside, getting exercise and doing what they love instead of sitting at home on the couch wasting their lives with video games and potato chips. I support them 100%.

That’s right! It’s been a long wait and we’ve come across some problems(read here if you missed it) but we’re finally ready to release our new line and the big release date is THIS FRIDAY! We’ll be putting out 2 new items that will be available as single pieces OR in a couple different package deals that can save you money while still getting all of the new gear you want.
So, what will be included in this release? Well, unfortunately we’ll only be dropping half of what we originally planned on because we were unable to come to an agreement with the printer who messed up the shirts. We decided not to include the new design in our summer line because we would rather put out a top quality product than half ass it and end up paying for it later(we don’t want any unhappy customers, ever).
Okay…so what WILL be in the new line? Don’t worry this is still a pretty big line for us and we’re offering up a brand new product that we’ve never carried before. That part is still a surprise but what we CAN show you is this…
Any ideas?? Long time fans of Angry Spade should definitely know what this is because we pretty much gave it all away in our last set of previews posted on Facebook. But not only are we putting out new tees, we took the time to source out higher quality, better fitting, lesser shrinking and more awesome t-shirt blanks to print on! No other indie brands print on these tees and you’ll be in for a sweet surprise once you try yours on. It took quite a bit of time and research and ordering samples, but we’re very happy with the result and we know you will be too.
On top of that, we’ve decided to get rid of those annoying tags that rub on your neck and replace them with super soft screen printed tags! These feel so much better and they make the shirt look ten times more professional and finished. Enjoy the extra comfort!
And then last but not least…each shirt is now fixed with one of these custom woven hem tags. They don’t add comfort, but they DO look awesome and give it more flair than your average t-shirt. Don’t you agree? Plus, we sewed each one on in house instead of paying someone else to do it, just one of the many ways we keep costs down so that we can put out a lower priced product.
All in all we think that for what we lost with not releasing that new design, we made up for by doubling the quality of our shirts. Again, these new shirts will be released this Friday, on July 8th. Keep your eyes peeled for that new surprise product!
Much Love ❤

So as you all well know, our spring line was suppose to release some time ago, and by some time ago I mean a few months ago. We felt it’s time to let you guys know what’s taking so long and why we still haven’t released anything. Before I even get into that though I want to sincerely apologize for the wait and I promise to make it up to you, I’m just as disappointed as some of you are about this and we’re doing everything we can to get this resolved as soon as possible.
In the beginning we planned on releasing what was going to be the biggest line we have ever had. It consisted of 100 shirts(3 tees and one new surprise product) and at first everything was going great, the designs turned out awesome and we started getting ready to order the shirts…and here is where we went wrong. Up until this point we had always used Threadbird for our printing, but in an effort to lower our prices we found another screen printer who could do what we needed for a lower price(or so they claimed) and after ordering some samples of their previous work and deciding it all checked out okay, we went ahead and placed our order.
A few weeks later we finally got to approve the initial mock up of the tees and get the order into production. When we eventually did receive the shirts, we couldn’t believe the quality they came to us in…the shirts were ripped, stained, and the ink was even smudged on some of them. Me and Alyssa constantly strive to provide the best products we can to you and in no way could we ever even think about selling these. We went to great lengths to make this line something special, something way better than anything we’ve done before and we’ll do whatever it takes to provide that to you.
Right now as I type this, the shirts are on a UPS truck on their way back to the printer to be “reviewed” and then if they decide they are deserving of a reprint we’ll have brand new shirts shipped back to us. We’re keeping our fingers crossed tightly that they’ll replace the shirts for us, but if they won’t then we’ll be getting them reprinted somewhere else. Obviously we can’t promise anything as far as an exact date for the new release, but we’re optimistic that it will be within the next month or two.
Again I will say how sorry I am, I’ve been talking with all of you over Twitter & Facebook and I’ve been hyping this thing up for so long. I feel like I have let you all down and I swear I will make up for it. All of the Angry Spade fans mean so much to me and your continued support is what has kept me doing this during the hard times. Please bear with us on this bump in the road.
Much Love ❤
