Hi, my name is Andrew and this is my side hustle; Pander Shirts. I'm a gay dude with a background in graphic design and a healthy interest in corporate greed.
So I'll be honest, I initially created Pander Shirts as a joke. I was seeing a lot of corporate pride merch that I felt was out of touch and didn't represent the community, so one night I decided to make fun of it and came up with the name "Pander Shirts". I whipped up the dumbest designs I could think of and put them online, and then people bought them.
Since that night in 2018. Pander has grown into a ~*real*~ business. It's still called Pander Shirts because I don't think I can change it now.
This store is run completely and solely by me! A queeeeeer owned business, you could call it! (It's me, I'm the queer). I'm the designer, I do all the product photography (and sometimes model 💅 ), the marketing, running the socials, customer service, site maintenance, etc. So if you want to support me during pride instead of Nike or Citibank I would really appreciate it!
