Squad Merchandise

Recommended Posts

Hi Squaddies,
 
You've been asking us for ages, and we've finally done it. Squad Merchandise is a go! Starting Tuesday October 25th, you can pre-order your Squad gear and feel good about it, because Offworld Industries is donating $5 (our profits) to support real veterans with every purchase.
 
We're proud to announce our partnership with Chinatown Screen printing of Vancouver and Stack-Up, a charity aimed at supporting US, NATO, Australian and New Zealand veterans through video games to offer a selection of Squad merchandise to friends and fans of the game.

 

Meet Jordan, the guy creating all the goodies.

Established in 2013, Chinatown Screen Printing is a full service studio in Vancouver that focuses on merchandising and brand development. Jordan, the owner and operator of the company, has worked in the visual effects industry for three and a half years producing custom crew merchandise for some of the many feature films produced in Vancouver. Jordan hand screen prints every piece that goes through his studio and is very excited to be working with Squad to create quality apparel we know you will love to wear!
 
As part of Jordans commitment to our charity work he has offered to add customizable Kit badges so you can keep your squad identity outside of the game. You will be able to choose your role for most of the swag. (Hats excluded)

Stack-Up Charity Partnership

We're also especially proud to be partnering with Stack-Up to donate $5 from every item sold in the store.
 
Founded and run by a combat veteran who has personally felt the impact gaming can have emotionally and psychologically on veterans, Stack-Up is a the only charity supporting military and veterans through video gaming. They send supply crates full of video games to combat zones and military hospitals, as well as sending disabled and deserving vets to major gaming events, and creating local communities to support vets. Stack-Up wants to raise morale to fight the effects of depression, combat injuries, and post traumatic stress, all while bringing vets together through in a supportive and understanding gaming community.

 

Stack-Up at PAX West

 

Research shows that trauma sufferers have a significantly reduced number of flashbacks while focusing on highly engaging visual-spatial tasks - in essence, video games. There are also profound therapeutic effects both for soldiers in a war zone or who are readjusting back into society following deployment. Video games provide soldiers a friendly competitive environment after work hours; instead of soldiers disappearing back to their bunk after a shift, theyre interacting with others and having fun.
 
The charity functions as a stack. In the military, a stack is a slang term for when an assault team forms up single file along the entrance of the room where they believe a threat is located. With Stack-Up, their stack represents a strong community of friends, family, brothers and sisters-in-arms, and supporters. We're proud to be a part of a community coming together with the common mission of helping veterans through video gaming.

Here is where it gets really interesting

As an extra incentive to raise the bar, on Tuesday October 25th at 12pm noon (21:00 GMT) you can start pre-ordering your merchandise and the first 100 orders will receive a free Squad Steam Key! Set your alarms! (First orders will ship approx. November 8th)
 
So by popular request, Squad Merchandise is now a reality. Thanks for helping us support Jordan's craft and Stack-Up, a great cause that aligns well with our values.
Enjoy the merchandise and thanks for your support!

Offworld Out.

Very cool! Stack Up sounds like a great cause too!

 

But does anyone else want their role on the sleeve rather than the back? Just me? :)

Nice!
I personally would like to also have simple patches of Squad logo(s), to be able to attach them on backpack/tracksuit/bathrobe.

Do you know if shipping is international or just US/CA?

 

I'm from the UK and would love a shirt ;) .

UK is 100% doable. Jordan who is running the store will be able to follow up with those details. Shouldnt be too bad from canada.

Interesting idea.

When I saw the "choose your role" picture I hoped for Shirts where you can choose the Icon of your favourite role.

I mean, like a black shirt only with the Medic icon (or the icon of whatever role you like the most) on the front and nothing on the back.

That would be something that i'd actually wear everyday.

we could do that for you no problem. the beauty of making it all by hand.
