About Ichthus VerseWear
I tried to give this idea away if you can believe it. I wanted to see it become something, but I was too busy writing a book. The problem is, nothing ever happened to my idea. I tried to shut it out. I was too busy to take this on. It kept haunting me. A year later, after being tired of wrestling with whether or not to put this idea into action, I asked to see a great friend in order to solicit his help. Something was growing.
I sat down with my friend over a smile, a notebook, and a sandwich and began to speak. As I started to unveil my idea, he listened intently but with an odd look on his face. “Ah,” I think as I speak, “He’s not interested.” I finished speaking. A long pause followed by a hard blink came from across the table. “I have wanted to do something like this for a long time.” I almost fell over. “Let’s do it.” Ichthus was beginning to take form.
On May 20th, 2011, Ichthus Versewear became a reality. The fish has hatched. Now, our designs, our vision, finally becomes something you be a part of. Are you ready to swim? -Brittany “Britt” Paladino, CEO
Evangelism Doesn’t Have To Be Hard
“I want to talk to people about God, but I don’t know how to start the conversation,” or “I wish I was as comfortable talking about the bible as you are.” These are the most common things I have heard from people over the years when I teach fellow Christians. I have been in business for decades. I am also a voracious researcher of things biblical. The conversations I have with strangers when I wear our shirts are not an effort for me. I don’t want them to be an effort for you either.
Ichthus Versewear is a way for you, the participant, to wear an ice breaker for starting a conversation about God. Our unique T-Shirt designs bring the conversation to you and create your opening line for you. All you have to do is speak and share when you get asked, “What’s with your t-shirt?”

About Brittany Paladino
The journey began with a crushing, life-changing trial that drove her to dive deep into God’s word. The pages soothed her soul and inspired her to want others to see the pages with the same vibrancy. It pained her to hear others privately admit that they were not comfortable sharing Jesus or the Bible with others. It started with an idea, it happened because of God, and it was possible because it was His mission from the beginning. Brittany has an extensive, award-winning sales career and is recognized as a National Pro-Life speaker, covering the subject of Adoption.
Brittany is happily married to her husband, Joe, and together they share in the raising of Brittany’s daughter, Carli. They have 3 yippie dogs named Jake, Rocky,
