Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast. We explored building a shirt brand from scratch. What makes it more interesting is the folks from WolfPig we will be talking to didn’t know how to make T-shirts before they started. We will talk to them about what it took to not only start the brand, but to learn to print t-shirts. We will cover things like how they came up with the idea, what were the challenges and what is happening now with the WolfPig brand. This will be a fun an insightful conversation about building a shirt brand.
Our regular listeners know this, but 2 Regular Guys are all about garment decorating, a bit of fun, and no rants or lectures or selling. We are not doing this for our employers, but rather for our industry.

Scott, Bob, and Doug
WolfPig Clothing Brand based out of New Jersey, near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Scott is the artist, his twin brother Bob is the screen printer and brand developer, and Doug is responsible for all things technical such as website design, photography, and video. With that being said, they collaborate on everything together. The three of them converted Scott’s garage into a functional shop where all aspects of the business are performed; from the art, to the screen printing, to the package that they hand print for shipping. Scott, Bob, and Doug are career educators and started WolfPig as a creative endeavor in hopes of getting their message and symbolism out to others.
