About Us

Clutch is primarily a name, image, and likeness merchandiser founded in 2022, with a mission to empower college athletes. Prior to 2021, athletes who played college sports under the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) were unable to monetize their personal brand and image, receiving only a scholarship as compensation for their hard work and talent.

College athletes now have the freedom to earn money from private companies through their name, image, and brand. This new opportunity has created a need for companies that share athletes' and fans’ interests. Clutch fills this gap by providing quality, personalized merchandise that directly supports its ICONS with every sale.

Clutch's primary goal is to offer products that athletes feel proud to promote and customers feel proud to wear. By providing exciting products that directly support athletes, Clutch aims to create a future where fans can show their love for their favorite athletes while finding real value and quality in their purchases. Looking forward, Clutch's future includes expanding its products and services to meet the growing needs of college athletes and their fans.

Made-to-Order Merchandise

Fabric waste is a significant issue in the fashion industry, with millions of tons of textile waste ending up in landfills each year. Made-to-order clothing and merchandise can help minimize this waste by only producing what is needed, using digital technologies and on-demand manufacturing. This approach not only reduces the industry's environmental impact but also offers benefits such as higher quality and customization options for customers. By embracing made-to-order fashion, we can transform the industry into a more sustainable and customer-focused one.
