Punkster is made for young, stylish parents who realize their baby has become their “hippest” (and most expensive) accessory.
A line of handcrafted and vintage inspired baby ribbed tank, Punkster is designed to elicit smiles with its cheeky, charming expressions. With an organic feel and deep earth tones, Punkster is the perfect gift for parents and their newest additions.
Punkster’s core fans are excited to witness its explosive expansion, knowing it as one of the finest and most original baby gifts to hit the market. With a few clicks of a button on www.niceshirtbaby.com the online shopper can have a Punkster gift delivered to their crib or their Punkster’s crib, making it a simple way to give a fully packaged gift at the baby shower down the street or across the country. For $28, the Punkster gift includes a vintage inspired baby ribbed tank delivered in a baby bottle. The gift comes in a matching Punkster gift bag with a personalized card and includes priority shipping.
Punkster tanks have been getting rave reviews at baby showers and birthday parties in LA, NYC, San Francisco, and around the country. Catering to a wide audience with different shirts for different lifestyles, Punkster keeps a classic wit without being crass or tacky. Your baby has something to say, kind of.
Leanne Ford created and began running Punkster at 23 years old, taking the vision from city to city as she moved around the country before rooting Punkster in Long Beach, California. Leanne gained her experience in design and marketing with her first line, Messandmod, at Ohio University, working with Heatherette in New York City, and Quiksilver in Orange County. Punkster is simply a natural progression back to her roots in homegrown design.
Ashleigh Snead has supported Leanne’s vision since the beginning and recently left her job at a New York PR firm to work full time as a partner at Punkster. She is involved in all aspects of the company including the creative, press and business. She is currently completing her MBA at New York University with a focus in Entrepreneurship.
The girls have been the best of friends since high school where they met at a YMCA camp in Pennsylvania and spent their summers working on the waterfront staff together throughout college. They knew immediately they would be accomplishing great things together, and they are having an amazing time doing them all.
Punkster is available online at www.niceshirtbaby.com and boutiques around the country.
