Custom Military Designs

We offer Creative Services to our Military customers for free, and I’ve been the go-to rep for these customers for the last 3 or so years.  Key design elements for our soldiers unit shirts tend to include similar images, no matter if we are designing for  Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard or National Guard.

Below I’ve compiled a list of the usual suspects.

  1. Flags
  2. Animal Mascots
  3. Weapons
  4. Skulls
  5. Camo
  6. Map
  7. Scrolls
  8. Military vehicles
  9. Playing cards
  10. Pin-Up Girls

What would you put on your military t-shirts?

Prom Clip Art

Prom season is just around the corner, and I am happy to say we have tons of new artwork that will be perfect for the big event! All of these images can be found in the artwork gallery of our Design Lab. You can click your way into the Events category and to the “Prom” link, or just type “Prom” in the search field.

Prom Ideas

Of course, there are lots of other terms you can search to find prom essentials: Dance, Crown, Music, King and Queen. And don’t forget all the little extras that make a design sparkle: Stars, Hearts, Flourish, Swirl, Ornate and Banner.

2011 Prom ThemeHere is my throw back design for all those schools that like to have themed proms. I could go on for days with all the search terms associated with various themes. The best thing to do is search the exact thing you seek. For my design I searched these terms: Sea, Seahorse, The, Under, and Bubbles. Easy – Peasy! Now get going on your design and be the star of your planning committee!

Customize the Under the Sea design for your group.

T-Shirt Patterns

So now that spring is in the air, even if it doesn’t feel like spring outside (it’s currently gray skies in the DC area and my teammates are complaining about the lack of sunshine), it’s time to start adding fun, colorful, flair to your wardrobe and to your custom tees. I look to Jayme’s monitor, and then to Erin’s (our art specialists), and they are both working on similar concepts for their customers’ orders.

Today it’s all about patterns. Read more –>

Custom Kite T-Shirt

Fun Fact: More adults in the world fly kites than children.

Here’s one adult’s story:

Scott H. owns a Kite shop in Pacific Beach, Washington. Every year for the past 17 years, Scott sponsors a fun fly event at the end of the summer where people get together and fly kites.  Selling a commemorative t-shirt is the cornerstone to this annual event.

Scott contacted Creative Services with a few ideas. Namely, Scott wanted to include a male and female crab on a beach, flying kites. We translated his concept into a winning idea for his “Up Your Wind” 18th Annual Festival.

Scott loved the shirts so much, he sent us one of his mini box flyers (13 of 13) with the design printed on the kite! After running around the office for a few minutes of indoor kite flying, I emailed to thank him for the amazing gift.

We look forward to helping Scott next year for the 19th Annual “Up Your Wind” event!

Need help creating annual event t-shirts? Call and ask for Creative Services.
