HOLD FAST Pirate Flags for Sale (12”)
If you’ve followed our social media, you’ll have seen some pretty badass new flags flying from ISBJORN & ICEBEAR’s spreaders! Our take on the classic Jolly Roger pirate flag, the flags feature an old-school anchor, polar bear skull and HOLD FAST text across the banner. They’re based on Andy’s Sailor Jerry-style Arctic tattoo he got in Stockholm after last season’s epic Svalbard adventure, and now you can fly a smaller, 12” version from your own spreaders! (Sneak peak - the design is also being used for ICEBEAR’s new all-black asymmetric spinnaker we’re picking up in Annapolis in May!) Worldwide shipping included in purchase price.
T-Shirts & Coffee
Our coffee is small-batch roasted at former Isbjorn crewmember Sean's own Fat Puppy Coffee in rural Pennsylvania & shipped out fresh, within a week of roasting. All coffee orders go directly to Sean, and he ships straight from his boutique roastery. We get a few bucks from each sale, which mainly goes to support the podcast.
Similarly, our t-shirt orders go through a UK-based company called TeeMill. We chose to work with them because they use all-organic cotton raw materials and the shirts are made in a factory powered entirely by wind power. Outsourcing also helps us since we're constantly on the move and have nowhere to keep stock! We get a cut of the proceeds. Want to pitch us a cool t-shirt design? We love new ideas, so send them our way!
With the publishing in September 2017 of Yves Gelinas' Jean-du-Sud & the Magick Byrd,' 59 North, Ltd. has officially entered the printed book game! Andy & Mia are book nerds, and being on the production-side has been a blast & a great learning experience. Yves' book is the first of what we hope to be many similar projects. Have an idea you want published? Contact us to talk about it!
