Design Ideas

Where does the time go?! One day you’re at the mall with your girlfriends, giggling over cute boys, and the next thing you know, you’re calling them up for potty training tips and tricks. Life certainly has a way of flying by, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected.

Take it from this customer. Despite time and distance, she found a way to reunite with friends that was not only fun for them, but also their kiddos. And so, the “babyfriendcation” was born. As if the idea wasn’t unique enough, she even created super cute commemorative tees.

This summer, as you reunite with good friends, celebrate the event by creating a one-of-a-kind reunion tee. And, long after you’ve returned home to the hustle and bustle of everyday life, smile and remember those moments of relaxation and laughter each time you put on your tee.


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.


Summer Camp T-Shirts

A few weeks ago, I mentioned how much money you can save when ordering different items if you place the order all at once. Since we can use the same stencil on different shirts, we can group the order and pass the savings to you. Now let’s talk about how you can get even more flexibility in your order based on your design.

Most people think they are limited to one front and one back design. While the Design Lab showcases only one at a time, with the help of our customer representatives, we can mix and match different sides together to give your order more versatility.

For example, you can have your camp name on the front of a t-shirt with designs for each cabin on the back. I’m going to use this example to walk you through the process… Read more –>


2011 High School Seniors Class Shirt

Recently I spent a week updating our Senior Class shirts to 2011, and of course making some new designs.  I took a peek at some of the recent designs by our customers to spot any new trends.  It makes me feel less old knowing that one trend is still going strong among the upper classmen… Seniors RULE!  More specifically, they are the royalty of the school.  That’s what I decided was missing from our templates, kingly designs befitting those looking to assert their supremacy on the lower serfdom.  And for those of you still working your way up… I have a few designs to help you band together against the monarchy!

Custom College Group T-Shirt

I spent this last week working on new design templates for College Groups and Clubs.  As you can imagine, there are a lot of groups out there!  Volunteers, Student Advisors, Law Students, Pre-Meds, Model UN, Exercise Clubs, Drama Societies, Dance Teams, Campus Journals, Music Groups, Singing Groups and, of course, Tailgating Fans.  I tried to make some general designs that could be adjusted for any group… but I had to add one for my own people… the artists spending all night in the studio!
