ORANGE COUNTY, CA &ndash Extra Mile Merch, a full-service merchandise development and screen-printing company, announced today that Dan Roseblade has joined the Extra Mile Merch team as Brand Manager. His duties include business development, creative direction and production management.

Roseblade has built his career creating the highest level of modern apparel design to advance the Kingdom of God.&nbsp After becoming a Christian, Dan surrendered his passion for design and screen printing, and began focusing on how to use these talents to rescue a lost generation.&nbsp His COPE Clothing line (Christ Offers Peace Everlasting) was one of the flagship brands to use clothing and branding as a way for young Christians to testify their faith.&nbsp COPE Clothing inspired the creation of high school clubs that inspired change and leadership on campuses, as well as designing and producing many custom apparel offerings for Force Skydiving, a support ministry for military personnel and their families, and Champions for Christ, a Pro and college athletes ministry.&nbsp

Extra Mile Merch hopes to relaunch the COPE Clothing line later this year

&ldquoDan is clearly inspired in his passion for merch and ministry.&nbsp We could not be more excited for our clients and the growth of our services than to have Dan in middle of everything we are doing. God is building an amazing team.&rdquo states Extra Mile Merch Co-founder Scott Brinson.

Roseblade has already been instrumental in managing relationships and overseeing projects for Extra Mile Merch&rsquos clients including hip-hop dance crew the Groovaloos, winners of NBC&rsquos Superstars of Dance, as well as B. Reith (Gotee Records,) Youth Specialties&rsquo DCLA 2009, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the feature film &ldquoTo Save A Life&rdquo from Outreach Media.

Extra Mile Merch exists to design and manufacture custom apparel and accessories lines for ministries and movements, brands and bands, artists and authors, companies and conferences.&nbsp Featuring a team of fashion savvy designers and creative experts in fabrics, embroidery and printing, Extra Mile Merch (EMM) are experts in solution-driven manufacturing developing custom strategies and lines whether clients need only a well-designed but low cost giveaway shirt for promotional uses, or a consumer-driven retail line that will sell in any space.&nbsp The company is driven by an internal commitment to create garments that will actually be worn by real world consumers rather than finding a home as a gym shirt or nightshirt.&nbsp EMM will also print or manufacture existing designs while walking clients through their options for garment selection and printing.

Not merely screen-printing logos on shirts, Extra Mile Merch is able to create a full-scale line of merchandise including shirts, hoodies, beanies, accessories, jewelry and custom items.&nbsp The company is also proud to offer screen-printing, drop shipping, fulfillment and web store creation.

Kathy Douglas, CEO of Indie Extreme Inc., and Artist Manager states &ldquoExtra Mile Merch designed a merch line for Matt Brouwer&rsquos fall tour that has increased his sales per person at our concerts by 50%!&nbsp We recommend that everyone follow Scott&rsquos advice and ideas for a successful merchandise line for your concert table!&rdquo

The company is a partnership founded by Scott Brinson and Scott A. Shuford.&nbsp Having co-founded the clothing and film lifestyle company Truth Soul Armor, Scott Brinson built Truth into the largest Christian-owned clothing brand in the U.S.&nbsp Brinson&rsquos experience includes clothing design, music, film, internet, product development and retail. He has a hands-on understanding of the intersection of faith and pop culture and has been responsible for creating successful merchandise offerings for many youth movements including Promise Keepers&rsquo youth division and Youth For Christ&rsquos &ldquoAcquire The Fire&rdquo brand.
