The Seed is Planted
Prior to starting Chummy Tees, founder Josh Neuman honed his skills for 10 years at Zazzle - a marketplace for t-shirts with investments from Google initial investors John Doerr and Ram Shriram. As the Director of Customer Acquisition, he played a defining role at increasing their website visitors by tens of millions per month. One of the many projects he played a pivotal role for were the 2008 elections where he has been mentioned numerous times online including: NPR, Wall Street Journal, Allthingsd, Mediapost, Daily Caller, Wbur.org, WBFO.org, prnewswire, graphicpolicy.

A New Venture
In April of 2010, Josh formed Narwhaler LLC with the intention of creating a business of his own. After testing the waters in several different directions, it officially became known as Chummy Tees and the website was officially launched in 2016.
It did not take long for the business to take off. Within 2 years, it had grown from a small corner of his garage, to filling up the entire house with boxes of blank tees and equipment. The Chummy Tees Etsy shop had become one of the top 250 shops during the Christmas season and it was soon time to expand.
