Never be afraid to follow your vision.

Rare Breed Apparel® was founded on the philosophy a business doesn't have to compromise to create great products at great prices. Launched with the same courageous spirit we bring to all our life adventures.

Our business lives by the phrase, "Let's Make it Personal™ which became the idea behind Rare Breed Apparel®. We started out simply creating graphic designs and screen printing t-shirts for churches, schools, local businesses and friends. What we noticed was how t-shirts gave people self confidence, inspiration to unite for a common purpose and truly express themselves. We began printing our own collection of t-shirts and unique gift items for others who shared our mindset to personalize their own expression. Our t-shirt designs represent the failures we turned into victories by capturing actual statements we experienced getting started.

Since 2008 digital decoration has been our calling card. Because in reality it is all about you, our partners. There's nothing like having something that personalized just for you whether it is apparel or a unique gift. What you see now is the results of finding people, planning every step, sourcing unique products and investing back into the company to grow into a brand that you love. Our truths, ideas, beliefs are unique and important to all of us. What better way to express them than through apparel and personalized gift items that are both fashionable and functional.

Sometimes it's hard to know who is on the other end of a website. We are real down to earth people invested in making your ideas come to life. Without you there is no us. We're a team of digital decorators and customer service reps right here in Detroit, Michigan. Things we enjoy: graphic design, solving problems, and hearing how you loved us turning your photo/artwork into a special gift for someone you care about.
