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!

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.


Winning Charlie Sheen T-Shirts

Right now, our favorite celebrity for a celebri-tee (get it?!) is Charlie Sheen. Duh. Winning! Do you have tiger blood or Adonis DNA? You should have a shirt that says so. Check out some winning Charlie Sheen t-shirts. Create your own Goddess-worthy attire and feel free to incorporate our top picks: 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!

2011 Pub Crawl T-Shirt

March is fast approaching, so my friends Mary and Jason have helped me create new St. Patrick‘s Day design templates. Each year, customers order shirts for local parades celebrating Irish culture. But, I have to say, most customers get their custom t-shirts with the intent of honoring the patron saint of Ireland with a nice cold pint.

If you and your friends are planning a bar crawl, what better way to keep track of everyone than by having matching pub crawl shirts? Heck, you can go one step further and number all your friends’ shirts to keep tabs on them. A quick line-up at the end of the night…and you’ll know if someone is missing. Or you can use the back of your shirt to list all the stops you plan to visit throughout the night. You can even get one special shirt made for your designated driver so people know you are traveling safely.

So, whether you are Irish or just happen to love corned beef and wearing green, you can’t go wrong with a new shirt! And when you clink your glasses together at the pub, don’t forget to say, “Sláinte” (slaan-cha). Here’s to your health! And be safe in your matching t-shirts for St. Patrick’s Day!
