About BYDFAULT Promotional Products

BYDFAULT’S MISSION

The guiding principle behind BYDFAULT is to give back to the community.  That’s our core value.  It's non-negotiable.  When it comes to philanthropy, what matters is our combined efforts towards a shared goal: make our world a better place for all.

We achieve this by helping businesses and nonprofit organizations promote and grow their activity, and giving back 5% from every order to charity.

BYDFAULT

The early days

From 2012 – 2014, BYDFAULT was a t-shirt brand. Each design was created in collaboration with an artist and $5 from each sale was given back to the charity that influenced the design. In order to grow we needed to sell through retailers. And that’s when reality hits you in the face. I was knocked down by the harsh reality of the fashion world: margin, margin and more margin. BYDFAULT was condemned to either transform or fail. Transforming would have involved lower production cost, potentially lower the quality and source shirts from potentially unethical factories. And we would have to reduce how much BYDFAULT was giving back. I decided to reset the business from the ground up instead of going in a direction that was not true to my and the business core values.

BYDFAULT V2: BYDFAULT is dead, long live BYDFAULT!

2014 – present

In 2014, on a blank page I wrote: "5% from every custom order will go back to a charity of the client’s choice".  That was the rebirth of BYDFAULT as you know it today. From there, I built a business dedicated to helping organizations promote and grow their business with print, apparel and promotional products.  After all, that is quite logical, right?  I moved from doing what I love to loving what I do.  That is, helping other businesses grow and give back!
