About Lugnut Designs

Lugnut Designs is based in Putnam Valley, NY and owned and operated by Calla Michalski, a graphic designer. Calla had a “car theme” emerge as she created baby bodysuit gifts for her friends. She posted a few of those items on Etsy, and they started selling! Her husband, Sly, has some really cool ideas and helps with packaging and shipping orders out. Calla stays continuously inspired and loves custom orders! When she found out she was pregnant with twin boys in 2016, it was time to expand the business. Etsy and Lugnut Designs has allowed her to work from home and spend more time with their boys... whom you’ll see modeling Lugnut Designs gear!

The Story Behind the "Lugnut" Name:
Calla met Sly while he was working as a Service Writer. She needed new tires, and he tried to sell her on some struts. She declined, and he said "well, if your not going to fix your car, you might as well wash it!" She listened, and noticed there was a Lugnut missing! Furious, she called to complain and he said he "would personally fix it for her."
At their wedding, Calla's sister's Maid of Honor speech told the story of how they met, and ended with "To me, you'll forever be known as Mr. & Mrs. Lugnut!" Yup, it stuck! And now we have two little "lugnuts" to showcase our products.

Frequently asked questions
Can You Customize Any Shirt?

Yes! All designs can be customized because all designs are original and we're made by our shop. We love working with customers who see something in the shop but want it a little different. For example, if you'd like to change a word in a design (like "Dad" to "Grandpa"), please note it in the "notes to seller" box when checking out.

We also love making brand new designs. Send us a message with some images and text you'd like to use and we'll create something brand new for you. We can handle most custom requests and typically do so without an extra fee, especially if it is a design that we can continue to sell in the shop. Allow 1-3 business days for the listing to be made for you.
