While attending the PSP World Cup 2008 and walking around the vendors area it was obvious that there were some newer companies attending and one that caught the eye of myself and I am sure many others at the event was Welt Factory. With their own unique clothing designs and offering two chances to win an Planet Eclipse Infamous SL-74 with each t-shirt purchase it wasn’t hard to see why they were getting paintballers attention. I got to sit down and talk to Steve Nelson as to why Welt Factory was formed.
Due to the lack of design creativity in the paintball segment, Jeremy( AKA Wuba & fellow business partner) and I decided to use our backgrounds in marketing and design to launch a brand that paintballers and non paintballers alike could wear out on the field, to school, out at a bar, or just anywhere they wanted to show their love for the game. We were tired of seeing the same old repeating prints/patterns being ripped off from the big name fashion giants and being used on headbands, shirts, etc. We thought this form of creativity and design was something this sport DID NOT NEED. So, we stepped up and took the responsibility in giving the masses what they craved and wanted, fresh to death designs, colors, and overall swagger. The quality is in the shirts we hand pick. They are ringspun, enzyme washed tees that are the softest you will ever feel, and will not ever shrink. Thats why we adapted the motto: Putting Comfort In Pain. It has been a hard but very rewarding job ever since.
