About Us

State of the Art is where YOUR ideas become a reality. Bridging the gap between inspiration and final product. As a subsidiary of NC State Bookstores, we are now able to fill a gap for our students, faculty/staff, alumni and fans who not only love official Wolfpack merchandise, but may simply want to create their own while still supporting the Wolfpack.


With State of the Art you can do things like:


  • Create your own designs and print them on demand
  • Work with our on-site graphic designer to have designs made for you
  • Re-live NC State memories by bringing back graduation dates, adding names to old designs, etc.
  • Merchandise yourself with your own line of non-NC State products and apparel.

The opportunities are limitless…

But it doesn’t end there! State of the Art is more than just custom t-shirts. It’s also your OFFICIAL source for officially licensed and branded departmental/organizational BRICK merchandise. For departments, organizations, fraternities, sororities, clubs, groups, or any of the like who want to represent NC State with their likeness, State of the Art can make that happen. With our embroidered gear, outfit your group with thousands of options for apparel and promotional items brandished with the official NC State brick and YOUR group name.
