Hi there! While our main purpose is to help you tell your story through awesome apparel and merch we figured you want to know a little about 1836 Ink.

The Backstory

almost 25 years ago I headed across the Oklahoma/Arkansas border to attend the University of Arkansas – I never dreamed all these  years later it would still be where I called home. After spending more than 10 years in the financial services industry I decided it was time for a different pace of life – one where I could fully enjoy all the great things The Natural State has to offer. I think we’d all agree life is just a little better in a comfortable T-Shirt and even better when at least part of that time is spent outdoors. The jump from dealing with peoples financial futures to their merch needs was a big jump but we truly we love what we do.  We are know that while merch for your next project may not be as life altering as your 401k, things just seem to work out better with the right mix of quality and care.  

The Name

If you’re a local you already know that Arkansas really is a special place.  If you are visiting our shop from afar, I encourage you to make a trip to spend some time here, you may just find you want to stick around awhile too.
The name of our shop, 1836 Ink, is our small  way to pay homage to the  year Arkansas became the 25th state in the union. 
Our logo, while simple, was inspired by the state flag and the trees at the top as a constant reminder to get outside and enjoy all the natural state has to offer. 


We all have a story to tell and we would love to help you tell yours with some great new merch.


Our goal is pretty simple -  We want to be a different type of T-shirt company. Our focus is on 3 simple, but important, things
  • Quality Blanks
  • Quality designs
  • Quality Service

We realize you have lots of choices when looking for merch to tell your story or  for a comfy T when heading out the door. Wherever you are headed, we hope you make memories that last a lifetime and while you do we’d love for a 1836 Ink T to be on the journey with you. Feel free to get in touch with us and share your journey with us.
