I'm Jeff Sheldon, the founder and designer of Ugmonk.com.
I started Ugmonk 7 years ago as a little side project to design a few t-shirts that I wanted to wear. I didn't consider myself an entrepreneur and had almost no business experience. It has all been just figuring things out as I go.
Since then Ugmonk has grown into a full-blown lifestyle brand which I now run full-time. We've expanded the collection beyond tees to include leather goods, ampersands, messengers bags, and more. We've shipped tens of thousands of products to over 65 countries around the world. We also partner with a charity called Rice Bowls to help feed kids in need.
Design is my passion and still the main focus of what drives the brand. We've done almost no paid advertising but rather focus on building a loyal customer base who truly appreciates the detail and quality that goes into each of our products.
Outside of Ugmonk I enjoy soccer, snowboarding, Setters of Catan, Chipotle, and good coffee.
Ask me anything and I'll do my best to answer :)
I’ll be answering questions starting at 11am EST Wednesday, September 2
