About T-Shirts For Dads

Find out who is behind all of these great t-shirts for fathers and dads.

It all started over a little 13 years ago. I walked out of the operating room carrying two beautiful twin boys. Both sets of our families were there waiting patiently at the doors to meet their new grandsons – snapping photos of me as the tears streamed down my face from the unfathomable amount of joy we were experiencing.

3 years later, our now 10 year-old boy entered the world — bringing with him an overwhelming amount of energy and laughter into our home.

Simply put, I love being a dad (I love being a husband too…don’t get me wrong but this site is about dads, right?) and I often say, “I just wish we could push pause on our lives right now and stay this way forever.” But apparently I’m not in charge of time and so I’ve learned to enjoy every day of fatherhood.

In addition to being a father and husband, I love making t-shirts…so much this is the third t-shirt brand I’ve launched in 3 years. I started Lighten Up Gear a few years ago designing and producing funny Christian t-shirts. Then last year, I launched Bald Tees – another brand for men and women who are…um, bald. It only seemed fitting to start producing t-shirts dedicated to dads.

So if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a married, Christian, bald father of 3 boys and I like making t-shirts.
