Meeple Shirts was the brain child of avid board gamer, Justin Farr. It was headquartered in Colorado and over the years it grew into a nice little shop selling some pretty cool designs. Justin got to a point where he decided he couldn't put the time into it anymore and wanted to sell it but it was important to him that he sell it to someone that could grow it and that shared his passion for board games.
That's where the current owner, Brian Welch, comes in. Brian spent his childhood reading comic books, playing 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering and Axis and Allies. As he got older and his D&D party moved away, Brian started exploring the wonderful world of board gaming and he was hooked. One of Brian's favorite past times is playing board games with his wife and two sons (13 and 11). Some of our current favorites (at least at the time of writing this) are Carcassonne, Azul, Lords of Waterdeep, Star Wars X-Wing, Star Wars Rebellion and 7 Wonders. In addition to board gaming, Brian is active in the Boy Scouts, loves to camp, is an avid homebrewer, bee keeper and wannabe grill master.
Prior to owning MeepleShirts, Brian was one of the owners of SuperHeroStuff which is the largest superhero store in the world. He ran that for 12 years until he and his business partner decided to sell it in August of 2018. Now Brian has his own Web Design and Digital Marketing Agency called Amity Digital, owns a screen print shop called Giant Robo Printing (btw, they print all of our shirts), and runs a few Ecommerce stores including this one. Needless to say, Brian and his team are quite busy.
We love building businesses that cater to passionate people, especially when they love the same things that we love.
