Festa T-Shirts adopts new name & identity

Jan '10
As of January 2010, Festa T-Shirts will be launching its new brand, GREAT TO BE HERE, Stylish and Clever for Women, Men and "People Who Are Passionate About Places!" Over the past 4 years, Festa Tees have been carried in over 600 nationwide retail outlets, most recently in Bloomingdale's, Lifetime Fitness Centers, and the brand new Coco Bay store in Miami International Airport.

Inspired by Founder and Owner Christopher Festa's love for travel, road trips, and the unique and quirky aspects of destinations in the US and abroad, Festa tees have been a nationwide hit, and featured on television shows including American Idol, The Girls Next Door, and Real Housewives of New Jersey, as well as publications including InStyle, Lucky, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Seattle Magazines, and the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times, Wall Street Journal, Boston Herald, Orlando Sentinel, and many others.

The Great To Be Here Line will debut at the FAME Fashion Wholesale Show in New York City January 5-7, 2010, and the new line will be available to retail shoppers on the eCommerce web site starting in early February 2010. The line will incorporate a number of the existing Festa best sellers such as Jersey Girl, Midwestern Girl, Boston Girl, Deeply Chicago, "New York, So Much Better Than Where You Come From", Philly Lover, Southern Girl, and "I'll Never Move East of the 405" -- as well as hip new designs including "Chicago, Just 45 Minutes from Gary", "Jersey Shore, It's One Big Taffy Pull", "Boston, Ridin' Dirty", and "I Pretzel Philly".

In addition to its tees celebrating US Regions, Cities, States, and Neighborhoods, the Great To Be Here Line is branching out internationally, beginning with 7 shirts celebrating Canada, Mexico, and several South American and Caribbean Nations. Great To Be Here "G2BH" has also revamped its popular womens sports and lifestyle lines, and has come out with a signature line of G2BH logo tees: including Great To Be Here USA and Planet Earth. As Founder Christopher Festa explained his inspiration, "Whenever I step off a plane, or cross a state line, or walk into a room, I think the perfect attitude is to throw your arms open and say, 'Great to Be Here!'" It's about not only having pride and attachment to where you come from or where you live, but appreciating the places you visit, and really enjoying the moment and enjoying your surroundings wherever you are."
