Swim Team T-Shirts

Michael told you all about Creative Services recently, and now I’ll be sharing some customer stories from those who’ve taken advantage of this great service!

Kim S. has a swim team in Pasadena, California, called the Sting Rays. Every year, she gets her swim team t-shirts to wear to swim meets and show their team pride. This year, she wanted to do something really special and make the kids shirts that were cool enough to wear for meets, but also something they’d want to wear year round. So, she contacted Creative Services.

Kim asked for two swim team t-shirt designs –  one for the boys and one for the girls — and since they are in Cali, she wanted the shirts to look like the vintage, surf shop style she saw in all the stores.  The final designs had a similar aesthetic, using the same color palette and texture effect, but were changed up so the girls had a more feminine flair. There is a sting ray in each of the designs, but the surrounding imagery changes the tone completely. To make the shirts even more fashionable, Kim ordered girly-style shirts for the girls so the fit would be more flattering. They were such a hit, she ending up reordering both designs a month later!

Need help designing cool shirts, sure to be the highlight of the season?  Just ask for Creative Services when you call!

Super Bowl Party

Sunday is the Super Bowl! It’s definitely one of the biggest and best sporting events of the year. The Super Bowl provides the venue for you to be the loudest, brightest, most “out-there” fan that you can be. Nothing is too much; nothing is off-limits. I might not understand the rules of football, but with the Super Bowl, I don’t just sit on the sidelines and twiddle my thumbs either… No, I stand, scream, cheer for the commercials, and support my team in an effort to be the best fan ever.  Even though I just picked my team last week…

This season, I’m celebrating the Super Bowl with great food and drink, a bunch of friends, and of course, some embarrassing bets on who wins the game (please win, Green Bay). No matter who wins or who has to run around the apartment complex in a dress (please Green Bay, please), you can always brag about (or lament the loss of) your team with a custom football fan t-shirt or other gear for the rest of the year!

What’s your Super Bowl tradition? Are you doing anything special for XLV?

Custom Penguins T-Shirt

If there was a mascot for winter, it would be a penguin. Am I right? Somehow, in January, there is, in fact, a Penguin Awareness Day. A day to celebrate the penguin for always being the best dressed or for being flightless but still cool. It just so happens that we have some stellar penguin images in our artwork library. And, some of our artists got creative and designed a few penguin-centric t-shirts that you can customize and make your very own… Read more –>

Sigma Nu T-Shirt Design Ideas

I was checking out the recent Greek shirts that have come in and, as always, it seems that putting the letters extra large, front and center, is what Greek life is all about.

No?  Well of course it is. You want people to know what organization you are loyal to!  But just adding an outline to one of our Greek letter fonts is not enough. Trust me.  Try layering your letters over your crest or mascot, maybe adding your letters to one of our design templates, or simply layering your full name over the letters. Read more –>
