Periodically we see ourselves places, and it's not just when we're checking out how hot we are in the window of the local coffee spot. We've had our shirts in the movies, on television, on celeb bodies, just about everywhere. Sometimes we're even sitting around at our local townie bar and someone comes in wearing one of our tees and doesn't even know we sold it to them, life's funny that way. Anyways, if you see us somewhere, let us know! For now, here's the shortlist of where you can find us on the interwebs and on the picture box.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

"Crazy Dog T-Shirts leases a bigger space for itself"
Since the business started in 2004, Crazy Dog has grown exponentially with sales more than doubling in the last three years. The company, which started as a project while Kingston was attending Ithaca College, began out of a basement, then upgraded twice in Village Gate. This month, the company moved from its 2,000-square-foot office to a 6,400-square-foot warehouse. Operating off the success of Crazy Dog, Kingston has also started two spin-off websites, www.NachoMamaTees.com and, after the success of selling Halloween costumes, www.CostumeSquad.com. “Essentially, I’d like to build a T-shirt empire,” Kingston said.

"Website selling T-shirts and Halloween costumes yields runaway growth"
William Kingston, who launched Crazy Dog T-Shirts Inc. in 2004 during his senior year at Ithaca College and continued it from the basement of his mother's home for two years, has built a million-dollar business since moving to North Goodman Street in Rochester. "I got into this e-commerce class, and that's when I started designing websites. The whole goal of the class was to create a website where you're selling something. I said, well, maybe T-shirts would be fun." The Kingstons added licensed products featuring actor and martial artist Chuck Norris, for example, or movies such as "Star Wars" and "Jaws," buying the shirts wholesale from licensed vendors.
