"Go forth and be the champions of awesomeness."
Sun-Stache’s genesis had to begin in a way that so many other great companies had before. They were founded inside the creator’s parent’s garage. And although they do not have an expansive corporate campus in Silicon Valley they are still being mentioned alongside titans of industry such as Apple and Google.* Years ago founders David, Eric and Dan were just three best friends who shared a dream…To sit in a room all day long with some of the world’s most intelligent and creative minds and just think up cool s#*%. Though the odds were against them, they never wavered and eventually persevered. Today these 3 best friends are living that dream.
But let’s backtrack for a moment shall we? David, Eric and Dan had a friend (his name will remain anonymous for his own protection) who was unable to grow a mustache in college. Seeing the misfortunes their buddy was having on a daily basis pushed the guys to research an alternative. They scoured ancient supermarket tabloids and Cliff Notes of pre-renaissance poetry to find their answer, but did not have any luck. Then, in an unlikely moment of enlightenment when their video game console was on the fritz David,Dan, and Eric’s friend Jordan held up the controller under his nose and the idea struck them all like lightning. After 15 entire minutes of brainstorming, an idea for the prototype for what would become the Sun-Stache was born. That invention went on to save their nameless friend from the life of mediocrity he was undoubtedly destined for.
The guys felt such a feeling of accomplishment and their Sun-Staches became such a hit, that they began thinking of other ways to transform traditional eyewear into something that was totally outrageous, unique and fun. They wanted to create a line that would completely transform a person’s face. Gone are the days of boring oversized “party” glasses. How about a sweet cowboy design with shutter shade saloon doors that open and close over the eyes? They were onto something…
The guys hired a group of some of the best designers on the planet and today their outrageous facewear line includes completely unique and proprietary designs including a pirate, police officer, devil, Santa Claus, King, Uncle Sam, and hundreds of others. They didn’t stop there…
Creating glasses that transform a person into a turtle…super cool. But creating glasses that transform someone into a crime fighting, pizza eating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle? Now we’re talking!!! They secured licensing deals with companies like Nickelodeon, Warner Brother’s and Universal allowing them to turn some of the world’s greatest movie and cartoon icons into transformative glasses. And they are actively working on obtaining additional licenses.
The bottom line? Sun-Staches can instantly transform anyone into the life of the party. Or the most interesting person at the supermarket. Ponder this…would you rather play a riveting game of ultimate frisbee with some guy without glasses, or your neighbor who just happens to be wearing a leprechaun mask, while dancing and ferociously devouring his beloved Lucky Charms?
