Steve Long

Sales // Ideation // Bad Jokes 

Steve is kind of a little kid in a big bearded guy’s body. He loves to have fun and gets overly excited about the little things in life. The thing he loves most about #tshirtlife is taking an idea that has been floating around in someone’s head and moving on to the front of their shirt..or back..or sleeve.

Steve hails from Motor City and loves all things Michigan. He is a graduate of Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL.

You can reach him at steve@blinktees.com or by setting up some sort of box + stick + string trap with Costco bratwurst in it.
