My Story

Like so many of us, I was angry and distraught when Trump became president. I have a pretty good imagination but I had no idea just how terrible--downright apocalyptic--he would become.

Marching in the first Women's March (in NYC) in 2017 inspired me to start making protest signs that I've since carried here and in DC every chance I get.

I call myself a lifelong smartass and accidental activist because, while I've been the former seemingly since birth, I owe the latter to Donald J. Trump. I've gotten to know many fellow protesters at various anti-Trump street actions. They told me they liked my signs.

So I taught myself basic design using freeware, then opened my shop and started sharing my designs in time for the 2019 Women's March. I celebrated my shop's first anniversary by marching in the 2020 Women's March.

Months before the election, to stay positive, I reserved a room in DC for the inauguration. The pandemic had other plans. I've been told that it's wrong to build a business hoping most of my designs would become obsolete--or collector's items--after Election Day. Unfortunately, Trump isn't cooperating so they're still current . . . for now. But I've got plenty of other fighting words in me. I hope you'll stick around for those!

Your proud fellow resister,

Frequently asked questions
If I see a design I like but I want it on a different product, can you do that? If so, do you charge extra for that?

If you'd like one of my designs on another product that I carry--say, I carry it on a tee but you'd like it on one of my baseball tees, please contact me and I'll work with you to try to make it happen. I won't charge more than the price I list for the product you're requesting it on.

Unfortunately, I can't offer this service for buttons, stickers, or hats.

How is Covid-19 affecting your business?

Fighting Words Designs is open. I’m creating new designs and taking orders. The printer I partner with is working to keep its people safe, so it may take a little longer if a new variant comes along. Right now, everything is shipping on time.

I know we’ve all become used to receiving things at lightning speed. The pandemic has affected us all, especially small shops like mine that don’t have a huge manufacturing base and resources.

I appreciate your understanding and will keep you posted if a new wave of COVID slows down shipments. If you've ordered and then decide you can’t wait, please contact me. Since everything is made on-demand, I can't cancel an order once it's in process.

Stay safe and keep fighting!
