[New Products and Updates] PhotonPhreaks - 3/26/21 Updates in the last post

I recently realized I never posted about my venture here and I've been doing it for over a year already, please forgive me!

A while back, I wanted some flashlight themed stickers for my Pelican cases but other than brand specific stickers I had a hard time finding anything fun and relevant. Eventually I got frustrated enough to make my own but I needed to do a run of at least 50 to have it made so I just sold the extras on FB. Turns out, there was a huge demand and I started making different designs and was forced to launch a website to handle it. Eventually I had people asking for embroidered patches with the designs, so I made those, then T shirts, caps leather patches, PVC patches and it kinda just snowballed into a legit brand.

https://photonphreaks.com/

To keep things real, I always try to throw in a free sticker with each order, to remember how this started lovecpf

On the other side of this whole thing, I realized that our community of flashlight enthusiasts is growing fast, yet also changing. People are coming in to the family primarily as collectors or EDC enthusiasts first, flashlight collectors second (this forum excepted) so I wanted to share the love and knowledge of flashlights many of us have and expose everyone to it. I started the Phreaky Briefing, which is an email newsletter that has short bullet points of the relevant news in our world, not everyone has the time to comb through all the different forums and social media sites. In addition to the Briefing, I also launched the Flashlight News section on the site with slightly longer articles and I hope to also have more types of content there, including blog posts and editorials. The content side of things quickly became too much for me to handle alone so I brought on Zeroair, a well respected flashlight reviewer, who helps and writes much of the content right now.

I hope you guys enjoy and find value in what we're providing and all comments, questions or suggestions are welcome!
Spread the Light!

Cheers Ozy, been meaning to place an order for some of your latest patches. Regardless love your work, every time I wear one of the shirts or rock one of the patches I cross my fingers hoping someone spots it! My RedDevil has been on my Rush 72 for over a year now, and my phreaky voodoo guards the Sigma and Gizmo section of my collection. I love that we have a place to sorta get our phreak phlag phlyin!

Forgot about posting updates here!


Well, I released a couple more products, the most fun one is my PPE Phreaks sticker set:

You can see the rest of the stuff here, https://photonphreaks.com/collections/all?sort_by=created-descending

Don't forget to sign up for the Briefings, especially if you're not on the various social media sites, its a valuable way to keep up to speed. You can read past issues here: https://photonphreaks.com/pages/phreaky-briefing but that page is usually one Briefing behind the latest one so be sure to add your email.

Some news:

Released a couple more patches, including one of my favorite designs


Restocked on the Flood Rings and introduced some new colors, some with a daytime color and some that are white in daylight for some surprise bling



We're already up to Phreaky Briefing #28! Make sure to sign up to stay up to date on flashlight news, you can find past issues here

Some of you may know, I've also been developing my own light, the PhotonX Tala. Currently in the protoyping stage, CNC protos are already machined so I hope to be able to launch before the end of Q1 2021

Any photos of your photonX Tala flashlight? I recently bought a Mcgizmo Lunasol 27, and have always been interested in dual beam flashlights!

New Phreaky Briefing Issue of Flashlight News, the longest one yet. Now featuring embedded images for ease of reading! https://photonphreaks.com/2020/10/21/flashlight-news-phreaky-briefing-issue-32/




I redesigned the site to focus on Flashlight News, in short, it seems most of my traffic is more interested in content than products.

The products side of things is still alive and well, here’s a direct link to the store https://swag.photonphreaks.com
Just dropped a new patch https://swag.photonphreaks.com/prod...ro-backed-embroidered-flashlight-morale-patch

Default [New Products and Updates] PhotonPhreaks - 3/26/21 Updates in the last post

I don't do a great job keeping this thread updates, sorry!
Lot's been going on, so here we go:

Dropped some new patches:

EDC Phowl featuring the EDC essentials


There was a Mandalorian themed patch but that one sold out quick.

I did do Baby Phoda and Devil Phreak Fridge Magnets for you to slap on your fridge or tool box


I also released what I think is the coolest item, an oversized desk mat featuring the patent art from the very first flashlight patent!
