Our Apparel is NOT For Sale, Our Ideas Are.

I was working on a batch of mockups for a personal project, preparing to showcase them on our Instagram page when I had a realization. The Internet has seamlessly transformed into a marketplace, where every aspect of the browsing experience functions as a sales funnel. Navigating through storefronts, ads, and e-commerce traps has become the norm, with even platforms like TikTok evolving into storefronts for sales and donations.


Everyone seems to be striving to convert a mere view into a sale, a trend that's nothing new in the world of merch and apparel. However, MTNBlaze Merch stands apart; we are not merely selling shirts. We are a design agency eager to collaborate with individuals and businesses to develop merch, not just sell it. It occurred to me that people might misconstrue our intentions, assuming we are aggressively promoting our merch. Let me clarify - our shirts are NOT for sale; our ideas are. Allow me to elaborate.

Apparel Concepts: Unveiling the Power of TechPacks

What MTNBlaze Merch delivers as a product is known in the industry as a TechPack. This encompasses technical documents, specifications, and art files that outline how a piece of apparel is manufactured. As an agency, we can take that document and have those items manufactured for you. Alternatively, you can take them to your manufacturer or in-house designer and utilize them as you wish. You own the idea, giving you the right to dictate how it is executed.


Think back to the Duct Taped Banana at Art Basel in 2019 - it wasn't the banana being sold, but the documents and certificates that granted the owner the right to reproduce the work that held the true value. While you can sell a T-shirt once, you can sell an idea an infinite amount of times. So, when browsing our social media, remember that we aren't selling shirts; we're selling the ideas printed on the shirt.


Custom Merch & Archetypes: Redefining Design Efficiency

You might wonder, 'Aren't you selling custom art?' The answer is yes; our designs are custom-made based on your input and feedback. However, starting from scratch every time can be a tedious process. We do the groundwork by developing ongoing sets of on-trend design concepts. You can easily 'Drop in' your business information and details, and we'll happily make any adjustments to ensure your graphic is perfect. By leaning on design and apparel archetypes, we get 70% of the way there, allowing us to make those final adjustments where needed.


This not only streamlines the process but also opens the door to expanding your creative boundaries. We invite you to delve into our pre-designed concepts, igniting fresh ideas that may exceed your initial vision. Our goal is to inspire innovation and elevate your expectations, transforming the design process into a journey of limitless possibilities.

The Free Market of Ideas: Fostering Creativity in a World of Repetition

In a world where stumbling upon an original concept is rare, we believe in an open and free exchange of ideas. With numerous tools and resources available, designers must act as actualizers of ideas, putting the doing behind the thinking. The emphasis is no longer on what the idea is, but on how the idea is used. MTNBlaze Merch offers a vast palette of visual styles to paint with, encouraging businesses to tell their unique stories.


Storytelling is at the root of all good merch design. Being able to visually express your story is one of our core tenets of operation. Our passion lies in translating the essence of your brand into compelling visuals, creating a seamless narrative that resonates with your audience. Through innovative design concepts and thoughtful execution, we aim to elevate your brand's narrative, ensuring that every piece of merch becomes a chapter in the captivating story of your business.


Converting Ideas into Profit: Bringing it full circle.


At the end of the day, business owners and operators are interested in the economic health of their businesses. We can sit and talk story and emotion and feeling all day but what you want to know is how we convert an emotion into sales numbers. The reality is that the way that people make a purchase these days is entirely based on tribal emotion. They want to feel like they are buying into a community or cause. They want a golden ticket to the factory and through buying merch they can identify as individuals with that world. your world and your business.


We sell our ideas to you so that you can capture the emotions and senses of your clientele. People respond to the narrative, that’s why it’s the driving force of religions, politics, and marketing agencies. By harnessing the power of narrative you can influence your clientele to buy in and join the team. This brings them into the circle of your influence and they become patrons for life, or as long as you can keep the story going.


Beyond the Threads: Conclusion


At MTNBlaze Merch, our mission extends far beyond the fabric. We're not just shaping garments; we're curating a narrative that becomes the heartbeat of your brand. Our TechPacks, streamlined design processes and dedication to the free market of ideas are the tools we offer to businesses eager to elevate their storytelling. When you choose to collaborate with us, you're not acquiring a mere shirt; you're embracing a transformative journey where creativity converges with the power to redefine your brand's narrative.
