Thread: PhotonPhreaks, Your source for flashlight news and swag!

    Default PhotonPhreaks, Your source for flashlight news and swag!

    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.

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

    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!

    Very cool Ozy, looks great!
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    I made glowy rings out of TurboGlow that replace the Carclo triple optic and act as a spacer to convert your light to a mule
