Meet the Lug Nut Crew

Hey there! I am Calla, the owner, designer and creator behind the scenes here at Lug Nut Designs. I met my husband Sylwester (or "Sly" as everyone calls him) when he was working as a Service Advisor at a tire shop. After replacing my tires, his employee "forgot" to put a lug nut back on my car! When I called to complain, he said he would "personally come out to fix it!" 
At our wedding, the maid of honor’s speech noted “You will forever be known as Mr. & Mrs. Lug Nut!” It stuck. And became the inspiration behind our brand’s name.

The success of Lug Nut Designs is a full family affair! Sly and I have 5-year-old twin boys who have been modeling our gear since they were born! Clayton and Hunter are also a huge inspiration for new designs. Sly packs orders to ship, and can often be found running to USPS to drop off packages. We have been creating custom t-shirts and selling them on Etsy since 2015. This online store has given me the opportunity to work from home, generate a secondary income and allowed for quality time with all of my boys.

I love making your dreams a reality! We have done custom designs for new parents, family gatherings, family vacations, fundraising, small businesses, school events and church events. We do not have a minimum order to begin the process. Our primary printing method is Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) using a heat press, but we also offer sublimation printing for more detailed designs to reflect your style. We deliver high quality shirts with our heart and soul poured into each and everyone one of them. 

"The boys just love to help me work. We are creating custom tees and family memories, one shirt at a time!" - Calla Michalski, Owner
