What is Squadron Store?
Squadron Store is a series of online shops created by Getz Solutions founder Travis Getz to support military units and deserving philanthropies.
I want an emblem designed for my military unit/facility. What do I do?
First off, that's awesome, thank you for considering Squadron Store! Just so it's clear, custom artwork done 'by request' is going to involve a cost. The amount will depend on your budget, how involved the art is, what usage rights are needed, due dates, etc. Use the 'Contact' link above to give some info about your design - it's helpful if you can provide 'due date' info and any budgetary constraints you may have early on. Squadron Store does not create designs involving nudity, harsh language (no F-bombs please), or too much innuendo. In some cases, active military members may need to get permission from their leadership before designs can be created with official symbols.
Does a percentage of the profit generated by the shops really benefit military units?
For online shops hosted by Zazzle, Travis Getz of Getz Solutions donates a majority of the profit he makes to the fund identified by the military group or facility (or a worthwhile charitable organization if none identified). Squadron representatives are supplied with Zazzle log-in information so they can check shop earnings and payment info. For any CafePress sales, 20% of the proceeds are donated. When custom artwork is commissioned or bulk orders are placed (for patches, stickers, posters, etc) a percentage of the proceeds is donated to a worthwhile charity or the military group's designated philanthropy, etc.
Who is Travis Getz?
By day, Travis serves as Authenticity Coordinator for the Tom Clancy's video games. By night, Travis does high-end logos, poster designs and military support artwork through Getz Solutions.
What do the snakes on the Squadron Store logo represent?
The two snake shapes represent (1) religious extremism and (2) home front apathy/non-concern for our heroes in uniform. Both snakes have broken necks and hanging tongues - they're dead. This reflects Getz Solutions desire to see both threats to liberty eventually overcome.
