Its been a pretty busy week thus far but some how I found some spare time to come up with a few designs for the store. Now these aren’t 100% finalized just yet but they are pretty damn close to being published.
- The first design is the Ink & Soul Tee. The picture of the tatted up chick is not only sexy but its eye catcher that will for sure turn heads. Its a nice design for those who have a fetish for fine tatted chicks. The shirt will be printed on a lightweight white tee that has a very comfy fit.
- This next design will be printed on a lightweight heather grey tank top and tee’s. I came up with the flag design that represents freedom of course. The “Drive Fast, Live Young” symbolizes living your life young without any regrets. Drive fast, do what you love and be FREE!
Alright so you decided that you would like some new parts for your BMX bike or skateboard, but the question remains, should you buy online, or order from an online shop?
Where you choose to buy is, in the end, mostly personal preference, but there is still some things you should take into thought.
Buying local provides many advantages, and disadvantages, just like buying online. Purchasing local lets you come in and examine the exact product you are looking at, also you can get a full and quick explanation on it from an employee. Buying online only has the few photos to view on the product, and only offers whatever description is included on the products page, and if you want an even further explanation you would have to e-mail the site and probably receive the reply a few days later.
Buying from a local store allows you to receive the item right away, but if they are out of stock then you will most likely have to wait for a week or two. If you buy online you will not have the product for however long it takes to ship, which takes anywhere from a day to even maybe weeks, but online stores are rarely out of stock, and when they are, they tend to re-stock faster than local stores.
If you are buying local, then you must travel to the part to buy it, where if you buy online, you are waiting for the part to come to you.
The final point I have to make is the return policy for local vs online. If you buy yourself a new part, but you receive it and don’t like it, returning it for a refund could either be really easy or really hard. If you bought something local then you will most likely be able to go back to the store with part, return the part back to them, and leave with the money you originally spent! Returning parts online however might not be so easy, you will most likely have to e-mail the site asking for a refund, and if they are willing to offer a refund then you must mail the part back, and eventually receive your money again.
As you can see there are many pros, and cons to buying online and local, but in the end, the decision is up to you!
Goals are a common thing. You set an agenda and go down the list till you achieve what you hope for. Although, life always seems to have different plans for you and your goals. We at C.M.F.A got a list of goals that we would like to achieve or at least attempt to achieve. There’s nothing wrong with coming up short, goals are just something to aim for. Sometimes you supersede your goals and others you fall short, it’s a part of life. Everyone makes mistakes, nobody is perfect… perfection is an imperfection in itself.
As most of you probably know, if you don’t know we’ll explain don’t worry! C.M.F.A is a clothing company fixated on the positive aspects in life. Our t-shirts like Dream Chasing since 2010 are much more than just t-shirts with words on them. C.M.F.A is all about supporting everyone out their who’s chasing dreams or working towards something greater in their life. For every person out there who gets up in the morning and attempts to make the most of their day. For people who appreciate the bitter-sweet moments of their life and attempt to make a difference in their lifetime. For everyone out their who believes in themselves or wants to believe in themselves C.M.F.A is here for you. We’ll be your inspiration when your having a bad day, we’ll cheer you up when your sad, and when your happy we’ll cherish the moment with you. That’s what C.M.F.A. hopes to achieve. We hope to achieve giving people a different perspective upon life. Everything holds beauty… you just have to look at it from a different perspective.
As far as our association with music, art, bmx, and skating goes. We would like to be more involved in those communities. Mainly because we feel that music, art, bmx, or skating represent what we are about. Chasing dreams, doing the impossible, living life at a moments notice, and cherishing memories. That doesn’t mean that we don’t want to be involved with other communities we’re just warming up. We don’t necessarily know how people feel about us or what people think because we don’t get much feedback. We’re hoping to achieve a more friendlier persona to who we are. We’re not your big corporate company who is looking for maximum profits and attempting to get all the money we can from you. We’re your local business wishing you Good morning or Good Afternoon, hoping you have a wonderful day and wanting to know more about you. Let’s face it…. there’s only so much inspiration we can give. We do our best to reach out to the community, give you great customer service, help around the community, and inspire. The only way we can reach out to you is if you let us greet you with a warm welcome!
Feel free to drop a comment and come around every once in a while! Check out our new t-shirt that just dropped!
March 23rd, 2014, a Vital Bmx forum post was made saying an edit will be created by clips sent in from forum users, and it turned out pretty well!
This edit is something special, it is not a big bike company’s edit with the biggest sponsored riders doing the craziest tricks. This isn’t an edit that is being made to make or break a pro bikers career. This edit was made by just regular everyday bikers hitting clips in parks and local spots, filmed with everything from a 2000$ Nikon to an iPod.
This isn’t a long article explaining some big exciting Bmx news, this is a small article promoting an edit I feel is really worth appreciating
Planning a vacation this summer? Looking for a new place to live? Here are 5 reasons why you should head out to California where the girls are pretty and the spots are endless.
5. The beaches!
Nobody in the world can deny that california has some amazing beaches! Not only are the beaches beautiful but the surfing is also amazing. That must be why so many great surfers came from there. That list includes Dewey Weber, Tom Blake (he invented the hollow surfboard), and Tim Kelley. Every year they also have the Huntington Beach Surf Competition.
4. The Music Scene
There are a bunch of popular bands that came out of California. Due to this California is considered a mecca for the music Industry. With bands such as Linkin Park, Korn, and Tool being from there they have tons of music festivals. There are even a number of Hip Hop artists from Cali such as Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, and 2pac.
3. The girls
Like the Beach Boys and Katy Perry have said before. Nobody does it like the california girls. It is a hoax to get people out to Cali? Is it true that being by the beach automatically makes the girls prettier? Head on out to California to find out.
2.The theme parks
California is home to the number one theme park in the world. DISNEYLAND! They also have Universal Studios. Not very many states have 2 out of 3 of the top theme parks in the world.
1. THE SPOTS
In the BMX and skate community it has always been East VS. West. The east is known for their gritty spots. California on the other hand is known for there amazing spots with great run ups. Rails are perfectly waxed and ledges uncapped. California is just the real life version of SKATE 3.
