Fashion Designer Murphy Paschall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Murphy Paschall Sr.. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Growing up in Baltimore City, Murphy saw his fair share of urban plight and how it affects the people that live in certain environments. With a burning desire to get involved in community activism, he joined a group of high school friends to create a ‘rights of passage’ program to provide manhood training for African American males. After having sons of his own he joined the Baltimore City Police Department as a way to provide for his family and serve as a role model for other young Black males. During this time, he also became involved in youth sports coaching football and baseball teams. After an eight-year stint on the police force, Murphy decided to dive headfirst into his first passion which has always been business. Attempting to combine his love for business and his desire to uplift people in his community he created Black Paper StreetWear. BPSW is a clothing brand that sheds light on the collective spending power of Black people in this country. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Initially, a lack of financial resources limited the development of the BPSW brand until Murphy discovered the “dropshipping method” of running a fashion business. Dropshipping allows garments to be produced with very low overhead and without having to warehouse said garments. Like most Black-Owned businesses, Murphy still finds difficulty in finding the funds to scale his business. Banks don’t seem to provide conventional forms of lending to Black-Owned start-ups. Also, it can be hard to get family to support your dream fully. I feel they have a difficult time seeing as anything other than the relationship that you share. You just can’t take it personal and keep it moving. Never give up and always believe the Universe wants to see you win. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Black People spend over 1.2 trillion dollars in the United States economy annually. A race of people with this kind of spending power should not endure the impoverished conditions we withstand, the under-educated reality we breathe nor should we suffer the overly incarcerated conditions we live under. Allow our collective dollars to manifest OUR true destiny. How we spend OUR paper affects policy and wields power in our favor. When you wear Black Paper StreetWear you are telling the world that our lives matter and watch how our paper proves it. The really bizarre thing is “every other race of people are getting rich off of Black People but Black People”. Rock your Black Paper StreetWear, redirect your spending and create a brand-new movement! 

BLACK PAPER STREETWEAR is a clothing company founded on the belief that “prosperity equals freedom”. We all wanted to be free since birth and that true sense of freedom is inside every one of us. Black Paper creates clothing that is quality, fresh, exciting – from our 100% cotton graphic t-shirts to our custom embroidered hats. BPSW speaks to the spirit inside of us that aspires to achieve what we desire in life. Everything that we need to reach our destination we already have in our possession. It’s a matter of redirecting our resources into entities that support us and uplift our communities. More importantly, redirecting our resources back into ourselves. Black Paper is Freedom! 

“Our lives matter and watch how our paper proves it” 

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
My parents Jesse and Lillie Paschall were my first investors. They provided the funds to trademark my first brand logo. Then there was my best friend JoAnn Tyler, who I eventually married, has always been in my corner especially through the rough periods. She would loan me money to purchase blank t-shirts and accompany me to different industry-related events. Most important there are my supportive customers that continue to purchase Black Paper StreetWear and promote the brand on their social media pages. I am definitely blessed to have these people in my corner.

Hello, my name’s Eric and I just ran across your website at blackpaperstore.com…

I found it after a quick search, so your SEO’s working out…

Content looks pretty good…

One thing’s missing though…

Because studies show that a web lead like me will only hang out a few seconds – 7 out of 10 disappear almost instantly, Surf Surf Surf… then gone forever.

I have the solution:

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to TALK with them – literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

Plus, now that you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation pronto… which is so powerful, because connecting with someone within the first 5 minutes is 100 times more effective than waiting 30 minutes or more later.

The new text messaging feature lets you follow up regularly with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.
