We've come a long way from the imprinted t-shirts of the 70's and 80's, don't you think? Remember your favorite t-shirt, my favorite was a navy blue RPI t-shirt that my Aunt Eleanor gave me. I wore it down to practically nothing in my "tom boy" days. Cool t-shirts Rock.
Amazing isn't it? I think t-shirts are one of the ways some of us use to express ourselves. I have my black glitter embroidery style t-shirt on today. It's the NYC skyline outlined in a glitter thread to give it the lights at night effect. Simple but nice.
With advances in printing technology, new t-shirt business models are popping up around the world. You create your own design, upload it to their site and wa-la your own creation delivered to your door. It's all about no limitations, no minimums, design, speed and personal creativity.
Check out my friend Gideon's new company. I think it's very clever. It also provides what the world craves now, immediate satisfaction. Your design ~ Now.
We do corporate branding, creative corporate branding! So many new decorating techniques are available now, we have a blast just helping design cool custom t-shirts. Did you know you can decorate a t-shirt and have your logo look like it was done in masking tape? Check it out, this is a screen print technique. Looks like you could pull it right off the material doesn't it? There is another style that looks concrete, another that seems just like leather, but they are all just new screen print techniques. The sepia tone process is very cool to give a corporate design the aged look. The design can look just like an old photo.
There are new styles of t-shirts to imprint on also. There is a vapor t-shirt, where it takes the moisture away from your body. Customized organic t-shirts are available in a ton of new colors, makes me happy. We have beat up t-shirts, ringed collar t-shirts; I guess it depends on the look you're going for.
The world is yours now when it comes to bringing your beloved t-shirt to life. I have a thought, for fun...I'll send a screaming monkey to the best photo or even a good story about your favorite beloved branded T. C'mon tell us, we really want to hear.
