Linejunk started in 2013 and has grown in all aspects making it the premiere website for the Line Industry Trade. It started out with a few Lineman and Linewife tshirts and grew to offer many products including yetis, signs, hitches, wallets, clocks, mugs.....you think it, we make it happen. As time went on we outgrew our old website and had to build another more robust site. "Hi" you are on it.
In 2014 we evolved and came up with the Phrase “We are not just a store anymore”. We decided to start offering valuable information to those in the trade and those looking to get into the trade. We have been here to help many get into the Union, give direction, answer questions and Fundraise.
Also in 2014 we made another page that concerns safety and reports accidents. There are 3 JL's and I that run that page Lineman Take A Stand For Safety.
In 2018 we co-founded The LineLife Foundation and sit on the Board of Directors.
The Linelife Foundation was created to fill a void in the support of the great trade of Powerline work. We noticed something was often missing when tragedy or disaster struck. Something only a Brother or Sister of the trade can understand and provide; emotional support and hands-on assistance. Originally, we rallied the wives, moms, sisters, daughters, and girlfriends and gave them an avenue to volunteer so that the men would not have to worry. These volunteers contribute a nurturing, emotional support that is best provided by the strong women behind this trade. We named this group of volunteers the Linelife Hearts and Hands and it is now a division of the 501(c)(3) Linelife Foundation. Today, we have a growing group called Linelife Leaders that includes the men, women, families that want to volunteer and go above and beyond to help in the industry. After an accident, a Linelife Foundation Director will post a call to action for volunteers in Linelife Hearts and Hands. We do not discuss details, name(s), company, or any confidential information pertaining to an accident outside of the Linelife Foundation Board of Directors. The LLF Director and local volunteers then work together, privately, to coordinate hospital visits, deliver care packages, offer hands-on aid to the family (such as helping with children, doing laundry, preparing meals) or whatever the need may be. We also have the capabilities of doing direct fundraisers for families so that a cut is not given to GoFundMe and the families get 100%. We hope these efforts may give workers peace of mind, while on the job, that their family will be supported and never be alone. In the Linelife Foundation we will also coordinate volunteers and organize fundraisers for use during major storms. As other pages we were part of did during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we will assist workers with necessities and supplies during storm restoration. We have a lot of experience coordinating these efforts. We will utilize local volunteers to help provide meals, care packages, and laundry service, etc. for workers who aren’t otherwise provided for. For example, chest waders and boot dryers were used in Florida after Hurricane Irma and mosquito protection in Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Those items were all provided thru donations and volunteer efforts with some coordination from our Board. In the Linelife Foundation private facebook group, we want communities to be able to come together in times of crisis. We help pick up the pieces. We are the Lifeline for the Linelife. please visit www.LineLifeFoundation.com for more information
On our site you will find information on Union Halls, Why To Go Union, Becoming Union which offers some tips to prepare, the apprenticeships as well as our shirt program. We also have a map where you can check out outages in each state as storms come rolling in.
We have a following over 235,000 strong on facebook and over 57,000 on instagram. Between the 3 pages we are the most followed and talked about in the industry. We have had as high as 25 million people hit our facebook page in just one week. They have been using the pages as teaching tools as well as a way to keep everyone involved. We try and share information and pictures as often as we can and we are known for how awesome the pictures are. We strive to bring you the best quality products and information to keep you informed. We are #1 in the industry in integrity and passion for putting everything out there. We keep it all clean and real always.
As the products grew we reached out to other linefamilies making or selling products and wanted to help them. In our store you will see many of their items. We try our best to keep it in the trade.
Printing is now done in house. . Since Day one we offered American Made tshirts, we did not make a switch halfway into running the business. We strive to bring American Made products but it cannot always be done. The men’s tshirts are American Made each time. That was important to me. Since there are so many options on the shirts (long sleeve, short sleeve, pocketed, hoodie etc) they are not stocked in house. They are print to order. There is now an option for express but the turnaround time on normal order will be cut down tremendously (shooting for a week and a half depending on what is ordered and size of order). Some of you have seen shirts show up within 3 days depending on the design. We offer customization options like no other apparel company in the industry. You can choose style of shirts, tall sizes, colors, customize art, get a pocket, get long sleeves, get a hoody, get phone cases, signs, posters of any of our designs. Our jewelry is made one by one custom. We do not keep stock of items and cross our fingers that the items sell. Our vinyl is also done in house as of 7/2015. This is not about money and buying quantity, it is about bringing awesome items to you. With that being said most tshirt orders are taking about 2 weeks. We ship Priority USPS. More information can be found here.
We DO ship internationally and do so often. All items are taking to post office and customs forms are filled out. We do this at least twice a week. We are not responsible for extra VAT charges your country may charge because they do not make that clear on our end before shipping.
We try our best to keep items Made In USA. All of our men's shirts are Made In USA by Bayside unless they are out of stock or you have a special order for a V-Neck or something particular you are looking for. Some items we carry are not made in the USA. If you have any questions please contact us. No question goes unanswered and always get back to you promptly.
