Spotlight on Best of .Biz Nominee – Jinx.biz

11 May

This week, we are shining the spotlight on a Best of .Biz nominee, Jinx.biz.

Jinx found its niche in 1999, designing and creating clothing for a targeted group of self proclaimed “Gamers and Geeks.” Originally, co-owners Sean Gailey, Tim Norris and Jason Kraus designed and marketed their trendy and innovative goods in a 10’x10’ bedroom. Over time, their small business has grown.

Jinx makes clothes on license for Digg.com, a well known social media network. Jinx.biz has evolved to be so much more than just an online store; its an online community currently running a t-shirt design challenge, informative blog, jinx sightings and other features that engage and connect fans.

All of these reasons and more are why Jinx.biz is a Best of .biz Nominee for Q2.
