Each December, as college students go home for winter break and things slow down around the office, we take the time to look back on the year, think about the places we've been, and dream up where we're headed. 2017 was a huge year for Uscape! Not only for our team, but also for the 300+ colleges and universities we're honored to partner with. This year was a year full of tremendous milestones and growth - adding new team members, 155 accounts, and countless new designs to colleges all over. We experienced growing pains and challenges, (like the time our entire booth was broken into at our CAMEX trade show!) but came out stronger and better prepared to handle whatever comes next.
Your excitement for the brand keeps us motivated to continue introducing more styles and designs that challenge the status quo of the industry standard's basic college tee and bring great design to college apparel. We love sharing the passion you have for your schools and see them as more than just another customer, but truly a part of our Uscape family. Thank you for making our favorite memories from this year possible and for allowing us to continue the dream of being the go-to brand for unique college apparel in the marketplace.
Let’s take a look back at where we’ve been! In 2017 we:
Added two new members to our team! Lauren, our head of sales, and Winston, our office pup and esteemed Chief Barketing Officer!
Watched a Uscape school bring home a National Championship- Go Tigers! (We’re looking at you this year, Clemson and Oklahoma!)
Introduced a new women’s line to our collection! 4 new pieces designed, created and curated with women in mind.
Added 155 stores! Became a vendor for 60 Follett Bookstores and added 95 independent stores across the country- allowing schools big and small to Rep Their Skylines!
Showcased at two trade shows - CAMEX and Sports Licensing (our first time!)
Started a resort wear business! Became a vendor for a select number of ski resorts- including our family's life long favorite ski spot-Mammoth Mountain!
None of this would have been possible without the support of our bookstores, sales reps, and fans. We hope you have a restful holiday season and we look forward to continuing to partner with you in 2018!
Cheers and Rep Your Skyline!
