A well-known student entrepreneur at Issaquah High School is junior Ben Wright, co-founder of the clothing company Bepser.
The halls of IHS are full of students sporting Bepser’s comfortable hoodies and T-shirts, recognizable by the signature cloud design printed on every item.
Wright, 16, and his older brother Spencer, 20, officially started Bepser in 2009. The company’s unique name is derived from “a combination of Ben and Spencer,” Wright said.
Production of Bepser products takes place at home.
“We have a screen-printing studio set up in our garage,” Ben explained.
Each item is manufactured with individual care, undoubtedly one of the reasons for the company’s growing success. Their most popular item is the cloud outlined sweatshirt, but Wright’s personal favorite is “the new crewneck.”
As for the future of Bepser, the brothers are working to extend the market to bulk sales for people in need of custom shirts, as well as to local retailers and vendors.
“The best part about co-running Bepser is moving forward … creating new products, and growing in the overall industry,” Ben said. “It is great to see our ideas go from our minds to T-shirts, and people wearing our ideas.”
Judging by the Wright brothers’ enthusiasm for the company and Ben’s innovative ideas and creations, this is only the beginning of Bepser’s success.
