Lee’s Summit Woman Opens Business Inspired by Royals Fandom a Decade Ago

The Kansas City Royals opened their doors at Kauffman Stadium on Thursday, marking the beginning of a new baseball season. For Gina Siebel, this time of year holds a special significance as it reminds her of her entrepreneurial journey inspired by the team. A huge Royals fan, Siebel credits their 2015 season with giving her the confidence to start her own T-shirt design business.

Siebel and her husband have always enjoyed watching games, especially during the memorable 2014 World Series run. In the spring of 2015, after the team had proven its “swagger,” Siebel designed a T-shirt featuring the word “Swagger” with a “W” designed like the Royals crown logo. The shirt was a hit, and her business took off from there.

What began in 2015 as a small operation in her basement has now evolved into a fully established, women-owned-and-operated warehouse in Lee’s Summit. KC Swagger now prints merchandise for local schools, club sports, and professional teams, with sizes for all ages. As they prepare for the new baseball season, they are getting ready to sell new Royals gear in anticipation of their success on the field. They have also produced successful designs for other teams such as the Chiefs and KC Current, utilizing inspiration from various sources such as Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.

Despite their growth and success, KC Swagger remains rooted in their love for the Kansas City Royals and the role they played in Siebel’s entrepreneurial journey. She credits the team with instilling confidence in her to start her business and emphasizes that win or lose, their love for the team will always remain strong. With new additions to the team and exciting prospects on the horizon, they are eager to see where the new season will take them and continue to create unique designs that resonate with their customers.
