In a nutshell, we LOVE Arkansas and the incredible outdoor adventures she offers. We also love comfortable clothes. But, who doesn’t, right?
That is the inspiration behind Arkie Apparel.
A little background…
The 4 of us are all transplants to Arkansas from various places around the country, but we are all now proud Arkies! Our backgrounds are in manufacturing, printing, marketing, finance, sales, retail, and good times outdoors. We’ve owned a printing company since 2012 and thought it might be fun to have ourselves as a client, too.
We had been mulling over various ideas and designs for about 2.5 years before we officially introduced Arkie Apparel to the world in May of 2016. Since then, we have been overwhelmed and thrilled by the response we’ve received.
There are a few ways to find us:
1. Here on our website, of course.
2. Various festivals. Get social with us on Facebook and Instagram for announcements on where we’ll be next.
3. At our storefront in our print company, New Life Graphics, located at 608 S. 8th Street, Rogers, AR.
A word about our shirts:
Basically, they’ll be your favorite. We have become t-shirt snobs over the years. We use tri-blend shirts almost exclusively because of their softness and comfort. What’s a tri-blend? 50% polyester + 25% combed and ringspun cotton +25% rayon = supreme softness and comfort. Bonus: they shrink very little, if at all, when washed!
We’re also very particular about the feel of the ink on our shirts. We use printing techniques to keep the ink as flexible and thin as possible. No one likes the feel of thick, heavy ink sticking to them in the middle of an Arkansas summer.
Whatever your adventures may be, we want to clothe them.
A word about our shirts:
Basically, they'll be your favorite. We choose our shirt fabric specifically for it's softness and comfort.
Our shirts use unisex sizing: cut a little narrower than a traditional men's shirt, specifically through the shoulders, but larger than a women's.
Guys: If you are broader through the chest and shoulders, you'll probably need to size up from your typical men's size. If you're long and lean, go with your normal size.
Ladies: If you get your typical women's size in our shirts, it'll be comfortable. If you size down, it will be a little more fitted. If you size up, it will be loose.

How to measure:
The chest width measures the circumference of the shirt about 1" below the armhole.
The shirt length measures the length of the shirt from the center back neckline seam straight down to the back bottom hem.
