The Key 2 Merch is an online apparel and accessories store.
Mission Statement " Making Merch Inclusive"
We are a lesbian owned small business. We are part of the LGBTQIA + community and we are committed to making our online store as inclusive as we can. We want to bring awareness and more variety for apparel and accessories to be found all year round, not just during a popular date.
We focus on making products for the LGBTQIA + community but also as times have changed we can't stay silent on where we stand in the new area human rights movement. You will see more political shirts and supporting our causes for equality. You might also see some animal designs as they are close to our heart and we donate to shelters each month.
We currently use DTF transfers/Plastisol Transfers for our apparel. Printing of the transfers is outsourced to local print companies, then we heat press them at our house. We then bag and ship all items personally.
All embroidery is done by us as well.
We are partnered with local non profits and other local companies to handle their fulfillment and shipping.
