Transferring Artwork To A T-Shirt

There are some things that I’m really great at, like being able to guess the plot to movies before they come out (Seven Pounds; totally called it), or naming all of the kings of ancient Mexico (thank you, Art History degree!). Then there are some things I’m not so good atlike math, dodgeball, and…tanning.

What I’m saying is we’re all adept at some things, and less-so at others.  Designing a t-shirt can be a lot of fun for some, for others it may not be their cup of tea.

How do we help those people who need a little extra boost in their design, or who love being imaginative but are looking for something a cut above?  Creative Services! Read more –>

Custom Adidas Soccer Practice Shirt

So now that we’ve all stuffed our faces and bellies full of the wonderful foods that the holidays bring, I want to be among the first to remind you that 2011 is here. And if you’re anything like me or about a bajillion other people out there, then one of your new year’s resolutions is to take responsibility for endless holiday eating and head back to the gym. And while that sounds about as exhilarating as taking down the gobs of decorations it took you days to put up, I hope that we at CustomInk can make it much less painful.

So grab your tennies, your music player of choice and get ready to be the inspiration leader for your group of workout buddies (who are just as “excited” to get back to the gym as you are) with these great athletic styles:

Adidas 3-Stripe T-Shirts

Adidas Three Stripe Performance T

All day I dream about…stuffing?! Not anymore. Look extra cool as you make your way down the indoor soccer field with this great pick. This Adidas t-shirt is available in 5 color combinations and features Adidas’ signature 3 stripes across the shoulders and a logo on the left, bottom hem. With 100% moisture-wicking properties, this shirt will keep you feeling cool as you work off that third piece of pumpkin pie.

Long Sleeve Performance Tee

Badger B-Dry Long Sleeve Performance T

For those motivated enough to burn calories while braving the great outdoors, the Badger B-Dry Long Sleeve Performance T will keep you moving even in cooler weather. No sweating the…sweat (sorry I couldn’t help it)…with Badger’s quick-drying, anti-microbial material to help you stay dry and, let’s be honest, less pungent. Believe me, your running club will thank you.

Champion Ladies V-Neck Tee

Champion Ladies V-Neck Performance T

And for the ladies ready to take on the scale…eeek…there’s always the Champion Ladies V-Neck Performance T. With a true-to-size ladies fit, this feminine yet sporty shirt will help get the women in your group ready to face that new year’s resolution in style. One hundred percent moisture-wicking polyester let’s you look AND feel good.

Short Sleeve Raglan T-Shirts

Badger B-Dry Performance Raglan

So maybe you’re not the type to hit the ground running January 1st. However, it’s never too early to start thinking about the Spring sports season. This is the perfect style for any game-winning (hopefully) softball team. This short-sleeved raglan shirt comes in 6 color combinations and will be sure to get your team psyched for the upcoming season. And don’t wait until the week before the game to get geared up – get your shirts now and inspire early…and perhaps much needed…practice sessions.

Check out these and other styles in our Athletics category and get ready to start the New Year fresh and fit!

Did you know that when you buy one shirt you can add personalization without going to the “Add Names” section? That’s right. Since you are getting just one shirt, you can use the Text Tool to create your Name and Number. If our classic style is what you are looking for, use the font “Varsity” and size your name to 2.5 and your number to 10. But, you can use any font, text size, and placement you like! Just make sure it will look good on you OR the person wearing the shirt. Check out my super short video showing you how to personalize your single shirt order.

I’ve been working on creating this and other t-shirt design videos geared towards the single shirt customer. There are lots of you out there, and I hope the videos I create help make your shirt-buying experience even better! If you have any requests, let me know in the comments section!

What has two thumbs, great taste, and stands out in a crowd? You, in your personalized t-shirt or hoodie.

The shirts I love the most are the ones that have my name on them. Except the neon green polos my uncle made for our family trip to Ireland; those were a bit rough.

When personalization is paired with a great design, people who see you will know you are part of something great – whether it’s an awesome rec team, the best cabin at camp, craziest family, or closest group of friends. What they don’t know is how quick and easy it is to make each person in your group shine! Read more –>

I decided to go through the orders today to find a sports design that could use a makeover.  Our customers have come up with really creative names for their teams. Some of the names are more family-oriented than others, but all of them are important. When it comes to sports, the name defines the team!

I’ve noticed, though, that a lot of people are falling into a t-shirt rut with the very popular line-clipart-line design (seen above as the before).  There are others ways to add clipart to a design without putting it smack dab in the center of the shirt between two lines of text.  Don’t get me wrong, sometimes this style can be just what you need for your shirts but I thought I would show another option.  Here is my makeover with clipart supporting the team name so they both stand out.  I mean, when you’ve taken the time to come up with a great name, don’t you want it to look like you spent the same amount of effort on your shirts?
