Stylin' Strings was conceptually founded in 1999 in a college apartment in Baltimore, Md. We made our debut at the 2001 lacrosse convention with five custom strung traditional pockets. After incorporating, we traveled the East Coast for the first five years setting up booths at camps and tournaments. We relocated to our hometown of York, Pa. in 2004 and started building out our retail space, which we are still in today. In 2006, we opened a full retail lacrosse store and production facility. We remained relatively small, surviving the pivotal growth years of the industry while we were creating a bigger niche for custom lacrosse sticks. In 2010, we decided to exit soft goods (pads, gloves, etc.) to focus on nothing but stringing mesh, traditional and hybrid pockets, as well as servicing the growing demand for our custom dyed heads and apparel. Today we have become a prominent name in the industry for manufacturing custom lacrosse pockets, dyes, stringing kits, mini sticks, apparel, and media services. We have maintained our mom-n-pop shop feel and service while growing to eight employees. Our website tops 150,000 unique visitors a year or more. Our YouTube page has over 9,500 subscribers and is a top ten in the industry as a whole. Our Instagram page has also topped 10,000. We continue to service the University of Virginia, Steele Stanwick, Max Seibald, and many more professional, college, high school, and youth players. We are committed to our customers, including players and parents.
