    Porch Fly Emblem

    Porch Fly Emblem

     

    When Bryant and I started Porch Fly in 2012, it was important that our logo represent the "Porch Life" ideology we wanted to convey. Our hope was to create a character that would immediately connect with our audience through a feeling of confidence, wisdom, and wit. We worked with the immensely talented George Hage, who helped bring our vision to life.

     

    Porch Fly Clothing Logo (Original)

    We loved the character we created with George, but that didn't mean there was an immediate inclination to blast it all over Porch Fly products. We honestly didn't expect people to want to wear a huge fly on their shirt. We figured it would serve as just a cool representation of our brand. But as the company grew, so did the positive feedback for the logo. We started with stickers and little business cards, and soon customers starting asking us to print up shirts. Fast forward to 2017 and the logo has ended up on every product line we've created.

    However, that same amazing detail that brought the character to life, killed it's ability to be presented in certain mediums. How could people see the detail of the fly if it was 1/2 an inch wide on a sleeve tag? How could we stitch that detail? Bryant and I had always talked about creating a secondary logo, sort-of a short hand version, so we decided to go finally make it a priority.

    We decided the three most important qualities were: Clean, Simple, Recognizable 

    Here's where we started. Don't laugh! Sometimes you just have to get the bad ideas out of the way...

     After some discussion with our friends and repeated sketches (including a bunch of terrible ideas), we finally had a quick stroke of "genius" that led us in the right direction. An hour or two later, after all the tweaks, additions, and deletions, we came up with something we're really proud of!

    Clean, simple, and recognizable. You can now find this stitched on hats and hoodies as well as printed on t-shirts. Click on the buy button below to pick up a tee or visit our lifestyle section to check our our stitched hat collection.

    How To Safely Burn and Maintain PF Candles

    How To Safely Burn and Maintain PF Candles

    You can relax, the hard part is over. You've already purchased and brought the candle home. First, find a cozy new spot for the candle. Bathroom? Living Room? Bedside? Fortunately, there is no wrong answer.

    Now that we've found the candles proper home, let's make sure you know how to properly burn and care for the candle to ensure the best (and longest) possible experience.

    Step 1:

    Light the wood wick evenly, spreading the flame across the top from side to side until properly and evenly lit.

    Step 2: 

    Burn for at least two hours to start. This helps the wick and wax get into rhythm.

    Step 3: 

    After each burn, clip the ash off the top of the wick to ensure a proper burn the next time.

    That's it! Check out more important tips and warnings below!

     

    TIPS & WARNINGS

    • Always burn on an even and heat resistant surface
    • Keep flame away from flammable objects
    • Keep candle out of extreme heat, cold, or light
    • Never leave a candle unattended for extended periods
    • Do not touch burning candle or pooled wax
    • Keep the wax pool free of trimmings, dirt, and debris
    • Keep out of reach of children and pets
    • Do not burn for longer than 4 hours at a time 

    Now that you're a candle expert, pick up your newest scent HERE. Thanks for stopping by the porch!

     

     

    Hustle Hard As Oak

    Hustle Hard As Oak

     

    "No matter what you want to do in life you have to have the determination to start and the intensity to hustle hard" - JoJo Polk, Core Fitness Studio

    Living in Raleigh allows to us live and work every day with some of the hardest working people we have ever had to honor to meet and it is this group of hustlers that inspired the Hustle Hard As Oak design. We wanted to make a tee especially for our community of local business owners who put in the work, hours, sweat, and tears to make their dreams a reality. Those that know and respect what it means to hustle hard. 

    Shortly after we released this design we started doing our Raleigh Hustles Hard blog series, where we would sit down with some of these influential hustlers around Raleigh and hear their stories. We wanted to showcase all the hard work and often goes unseen by some of our neighbors and friends. 

    Dress the hustle in the softest polycotton blend tees and tanks you'll ever find! We offer the Hustle Hard As Oak tee in options for the whole family: Men's Tees, Women's Tee, Women's Tanks, Onesies, Kids Tees

    Porch Fly Candles

    Porch Fly Candles

    It’s no secret that some of the greatest things that happen are those that are unplanned and spontaneous. This same idea holds especially true for our collection of candles.

    Candles were never something we ever planned on making until one night we came across a whiskey-scented candle that we fell in love with. Maybe it was the way the smell brought back thoughts of good times spent with friends over a glass of a favorite whiskey or maybe it was the whiskey currently in our glass at the time that made it seem like a great idea. Either way, we decided to give it a try.

    We thought we'd start with a whiskey-scented candle and offer it just as a special accessory item. And, staying true to our nature, we couldn’t be responsible for making a half-assed candle. If we were going to do this, we were absolutely going to do it right. There’s no reason to make something that you don’t believe in or stand behind.

    That’s the main reason we put so much time and research into finding the highest quality materials. Everything from the essential oils to the packaging to the wooden wicks. We wanted our candles to be made of 100% natural ingredients and also have a fragrant but not overpowering scent to them. Day after day of testing different wicks, fragrances, packaging, even the way they look in your home when they burn, and finally we found the perfect combination of ingredients for the Porch Fly Candles.

    All of our candles are vegan, made from 100% natural soy wax, and scented with pure essential oils. The wood wick we use doesn’t produce that black soot you get with a lot of other candles either. And because we use a wider wood wick you get an even melting of the wax so nothing goes to waste. We’re just thoughtful like that.

    The best part is our candles burn for up to 55 hours, almost 15 hours longer than your average candle. So grab a whiskey, invite some friends over, and make them jealous of how awesome your house smells.

    We currently offer the following candles:

    But stay on the lookout because new scents could be dropping any day...
