About us - How a heart attack started a new adventure

Pen and Ink Studios sprouted from the imagination of North Wales designer Gareth Roberts back in 2016. Situated amidst the picturesque expanse of Snowdonia's peaks and the tranquil shores of the Irish Sea, North Wales has emerged as a prime destination for thrill-seekers eager to delve into land, sea, and even aerial escapades.

The genesis of Pen and Ink Studios traces back to a pivotal moment in 2015 when Gareth's father, Chris, faced a health scare in the form of a heart attack. Determined to revamp his lifestyle, Chris sought solace in the great outdoors, shunning the confines of an office cubicle. However, he struggled to find a T-shirt that resonated with his mountainous wanderings.

Turning to his son Gareth, then a graphic designer at a framing company, Chris commissioned a design inspired by the majestic peaks he traversed. This marked the inception of Pen and Ink Studios, with their inaugural creation being the "Explore Everything" T-shirt, now available on our website.

Chris, an ardent social media user, took to Twitter to share his newfound favorite garment. The response was overwhelmingly positive, igniting a spark of enthusiasm among fellow adventurers hungry for similar designs. Thus, Pen and Ink Studios burst onto the scene, swiftly garnering recognition among thrill-seekers and explorers alike. Our portfolio has since expanded, drawing interest from a diverse array of individuals seeking bespoke T-shirts and logos.

We aspire to kindle your spirit of adventure through our designs, urging you to venture forth and embrace the world around you. So, remember to always "Dress For The Adventure".
