When I think of Stay’s product prolificity in 2019, Johnny Cash comes to mind.

None of our new tees is black, so that’s not why I invoke the Man in Black. Rather, it’s Cash singing “I’ve Been Everywhere”:

To wit: “I’ve been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow … “

We get around, too, for pop-up events in old department stores, in hotel banquet rooms and on city streets. But we also travel in a figurative sense, as we’ve done with the recent introduction of new Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, York and Happy Valley tees.

We’ve added eight tees in all, including our John Updike-inspired heart shirt in a women’s cut and children’s sizes and a new version of our popular unisex Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful tee, also in a women’s cut and children’s sizes.

We added a Garvin’s department store retro tee, giving us one for Lancaster to complement our Flying Machine (Hershey), Helb’s Keystone Brewery (York), and Herpak Franks (Harrisburg) throwback designs.

Canvas grocery bag

All told, the Stay lineup now comprises 30 distinct tees.

Our one other addition this year is a cotton canvas grocery bag featuring the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful design. It’s roomy and sturdy for carrying food and beverage, but it’s so stylish that you’ll feel comfortable taking it to work or on a trip.

Of course, everything we sell is always available on stayapparel.com. We bring a representative selection to all of our pop-up appearances, too. If you’re coming to see us at a show and want to make sure we have a certain item, please send us a note at hello@stayapparel.com and we’ll be more than happy to oblige.

We haven’t been everywhere, man, but we try to make our way around the midstate. We hope to see you down the road.









A new year, new Stay stuff made in the USA

New items arriving in early 2018

Most of our focus in 2018 is on getting out and about, namely bringing the Stay brand to pop-up events in the Hershey, Harrisburg, Lancaster and York areas.

We already have great U.S.-made tees branded for those communities, as well as Pennsylvania and the United States always available on our website. But we're always looking for opportunities to bring Stay stuff to where consumers gather in person.

That's why you'll see us at Harrisburg Flea, Creatively Lancaster's Makers Markets, York Flea, and Market on Chocolate in Hershey, among other appearances.

But we have a short list of new products, shown above, that we'll be rolling out, too, including:

USA pennant: Made for us in Big Run, Pa., by Standard Pennant Co., which has been serving the corporate, high school and college markets since 1919. The pennant design is a perfect complement to our USA tee

Lititz tee: America's coolest small town (winner 2013) gets the Stay treatment with this design, which is inspired by a sign on the replica train station/welcome center in Lititz Springs Park. We used water-based ink for a retro look that really pops.

Stay ball cap: Arriving in March, our second ball cap features white contrast stitching on charcoal fabric, with an embroidered Stay patch sewn on the front. The mid-profile design has a more streamlined look than our trucker cap. Both caps feature plastic adjustable straps and are made for us by Graffiti Caps in Cleveland.

Meanwhile, we've had a number of requests for a women's tank top, so look for that in the spring. [Update March 25, 2018: Try as we did, we could not find a U.S.-made tank that had the look, fit and price point that we felt comfortable offering to the public. So, we're tabling this idea for now.] We also plan to introduce our first long-sleeved tee in the fall.

Of course, we always welcome product suggestions. Please feel free to offer them here or in person at one of our pop-up events.
