History

Grav­ity Graph­ics was estab­lished in 1985, in Brook­lyn, New York.  The early Grav­ity designs were cutting-edge, oversized, trendy designs that encom­passed the spirit of New York City.  The designs focused on urban life and address­ing social and env­iorn­men­tal issues.  Jef Sharp, our orig­i­nal designer, brought a unique style to the line.  It was bold, col­or­ful, and whim­si­cal.  We have done our best to honor Jef’s vision by keep­ing those same qual­i­ties in the line today.  We at Grav­ity believe in the qual­ity of life and tak­ing time to enjoy the won­ders of nature; thus our slo­gan, “Live Slow”.  From our sig­na­ture black lab to our funny “talkie” designs, you can see our style has been ”laid back since way back”.

Grav­ity offi­cially moved its home to Charleston, SC in 1999, where we became more des­ti­na­tion focused.  Retail­ers from across the east coast and the Caribbean have come to us for our col­or­ful char­ac­ters and expres­sions.  We exhibit twice a year at the Surf Expo in Orlando, FL, where we present our lat­est designs and gar­ments.  In the fall of 2010, we will also be attend­ing the Resort and Gift show in Las Vegas, Nevada.  From New York to the Vir­gin Islands, you can see Grav­ity just about any­where on just about any­one!  We’ve spot­ted sev­eral “Today Show” sight­ings while hav­ing our morn­ing coffee.

Grav­ity Graph­ics con­tin­ues to lead the mar­ket in cre­ative resort apparel.   Our sig­na­ture big, bold ani­mals have made peo­ple smile all over the world and pro­vide our cus­tomers with one of the most unique (and prof­itable) col­lec­tions of printed and embroi­dered prod­ucts avail­able. Gravity’s cus­tom garment-dyed palette of resort and out­door col­ors are cer­tain to make an eye-catching pre­sen­ta­tion. Our envi­ron­men­tally friendly, water base dis­charge inks have soft­est hand in the industry.

Whether you are look­ing for a new and fresh line to carry in your shop, or need a cus­tom screen-printed or embroi­dered design cre­ated, our tal­ented team of artists have you cov­ered!  With over 50 years of com­bined expe­ri­ence, you’ll always be in good hands.

Cre­ativ­ity, style and atti­tude:  that’s what makes us Grav­ity Graphics.
