In November, 2012, my wife and I found out we were having our first baby. As a t-shirt enthusiast and graphic designer, I wondered what the ‘dad t-shirt’ market looked like. After searching online for a bit, I concluded that I just wasn’t thrilled with anything I was seeing. That’s when the idea for Rad Dad Tees was born.

I spent the better part of a year building Rad Dad Tees from nothing. It’s gone though a few changes since its official launch in November, 2013, but the core philosophy behind it is the same; we dads should strive to be the best dad we can be to our kids. As a company, we want to encourage men who have kids to be RAD DADs. My vision is for Rad Dad Tees to be the platform in which to cultivate a community of family-focused dads who are devoted to raising their children with love.

I aim to run Rad Dad Tees as company that is not only recognized for empowering and encouraging dads everywhere, but also for its ethical business practices. I'm not interested in purchasing inexpensive foreign-made supplies if it means that the people who made those supplies were exploited in any way, including unfair wages, unsafe working conditions, unreasonably long workdays, and/or physical abuse. I and my company are strictly against the contribution to those types of business practices. I want to actively avoid treading on anyone for my own advantage, even if it means my company grows at a much slower rate than the average successful company. People before profits.

As the company grows and I am able to finally pay off the business debt I incurred early on, I plan to donate 10% of all profits to organizations that fight human trafficking.

The word 'dad' is different than 'father'. Father is a technical term. If you have any biological offspring, whether you have a relationship with them or not, you are technically a father. There are billions of fathers in the world, but there are far fewer dads. A father is a man who got a woman pregnant. A dad is a father who is present and involved in their kids' lives- a guy who takes full responsibility as a man to step up and be the best parent he can be. He is proud of his kids, and proud to be a dad.

Our goal is to provide dads everywhere with awesome teeshirts to wear proclaiming their Dadhood. We want to make fathers excited about being a dad. If you are a rad dad, then Rad Dad Tees is your one-stop shop for dad tees.


Quality is important to us. We print on BELLA + CANVAS Fine Jersey 100% Cotton teeshirts (Heather contains 10% Polyester), an essential that fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a crew neck, short sleeves and designed with superior combed and ring-spun cotton. Super soft and smooth!

Good ethics, fair wages, and safe working conditions are important to us too. BELLA + CANVAS is 100% Sweatshop-Free, and their garments are made both here in the United States and abroad by happy, fairly-paid men and women. Not only is BELLA + CANVAS an ethical company, they also demonstrate their care for the environment by putting into practice many forms of sustainable manufacturing.

Our teeshirts are printed in the USA.
