Personal Note: (Rich) Unable to serve in the military due to a medical condition, has always had a passion to serve his country in some capacity. Over the years he's done little things around the area in which he lived but he still was longing for something more. Well, with more than 40 years experience in the graphic and silk-screening business and running a business doing things for businesses around the area, one day it hit him, make a Patriotic Apparel brand that honors both our Military and Constitution, so he founded GRITGEAR™ Apparel, with one objective in mind, to regenerate patriotism. Our designs are a brain storm of his thoughts and ideas that are both to the point and family safe. He also wanted to make sure that he used as much as USA made products that he could find to put his designs on. Right now ALL our apparel (textile) is USA made and printed in the the great state of Ohio. Rich and Sharen (wife) spent months going through different apparel companies to find the best quality tees to print on and being American Made. At GRITGEAR™ Apparel you can be assured that you are getting a quality item when ordering from us. We never settle for anything but the best, and we'll go out of our way to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase and become a happy customer.
