Quote of February

In astounding news, this quote of the month is being published during its corresponding month, not after. “299 million could be completely ignorant or even against you and you could still go platinum.”

Would you want YOU as a customer?

Customer service is important to us. We want the companies we buy from to have friendly return policies, (native) English speaking support staff and satisfaction guarantees (“is that valid for the lifetime of the product or my life time?”). More than ever, I would argue, both the customer and bussineses know that the customer’s satisfaction is […]

Custom T-Shirt Diary 27: Jump for Joy

One of the favorite parts of my job is meeting all of the people, businesses and organizations that need t-shirts printed. The wide range of customers keeps me on my toes and always talking with different people, which I love. A few months ago I printed some t-shirts for a fellow small-business owner, Tina, who […]

T-Shirt Travels Review – 4: T-shirts and Eskimos

The fourth chapter is our introduction to China. Fittingly, it is here we learn more about cotton processing. We are reminded that nothing is as simple as it seems (why do we still need reminding about this? – it’s always true). There are many steps taken between harvesting raw cotton and making t-shirts. There are […]

T-Shirt Travels Review – 3: Tees and Dream Teams

In addition the farmer’s were an extremely tight-knit […]

A Screen Print I Like – Salt and Pepper, London

I find myself being exposed to really cool work of other artists around the world while on the internet for work or just personal interests. I’m going to try to be better about sharing the neat stuff I come across. None of these posts are paid for or any sort of official endorsement. This is […]

T-Shirt Travels Review – 2: Cotton, T-Shirts and Technology

This chapter is an eye-opening history of American cotton – and its connection to t-shirts. One recurring theme is that West Texas didn’t start growing cotton until well after the rest of Texas. This actually gave West Texas an advantage. They didn’t have costs sunk in outdated “technology” such as donkeys (instead of tractors) and […]

Snowed In

We might be snowed in – but we’re still printing like the crazy polar bears that we are. Haven’t heard of the polar bears with opposable thumbs that own screen printing presses? Well, they exist – do some research.

Quote of January

“Decisions of Progress”. This month’s quote of the month was very tough to decide on. Not for lack of options. Early in January I read “Rework” Jason Friend & David Heinemeier Hansson. There are too many great quotes so I just chose one relatively arbitrarily to share. I recommend the book. The rest of the […]
