Hello world! (from the founders of Stolen Outfitters)

I actually enjoy seeing the Hello World post that represents the launch of yet another WordPress blog. Though they don’t always rise to power, they are all born with that ode to optimism “Hello World”. This is ours.

We built this site once before. It was a little edgier and way less functional. As the company grew, the desire for the public to purchase from us in an automated fashion also became more profound. We thought our brand of organic marketing made the company more personal. Everyone that ordered a shirt up to this point had to speak to the founders of Stolen to complete the transaction. The novelty didn’t always translate as hip. Also, you lose the 24/7/365 potential of online shops when your hustle revolves around emails and phone calls. They still have their place but evolution beckons.

As you can see, we’re still very much under construction but we felt compelled to re-establish our brand’s organic marketing platform by adding a blog where there wasn’t one prior. It’s only right. We’re doing a lot more now than when we started. bringing the printing responsibilities in-house has given us flexibility, joy, stress and a lot of reasons to take pictures and write posts to keep Stolen Alumni updated.

So here we are. Still building. Still printing. Still styling. Still refusing to stay still. Hello World!

    1. What’s poppin’ Mr. WordPress? Thankhs for holding us down on this version of the site. We have big plans for the brand and this platform provides us the much needed vantage point to capture more of the vision.

  2. I think the new site is great but at the same time, knowing that I can always speak with someone if I need carries A LOT of weight. We grew up in the era of a “customer service” being that a live person answered the phone. We’ve lost the value of that but I appreciate it still bein’ an option with the Stolen FAm!

    1. I agree completely. On the tech side of this venture I do an extensive amount of interacting with other service providers. I prefer to talk to humans but I understand why companies (and the public they serve) resort to FAQs to satisfy inquiries. It saves time. We will be adding a FAQ shortly but the cart being active and automated streamlines the order process and gives consumers the power to purchase at will. We’re still very accessible by Twitter, email and this site, of course.
