Can a group of heavily caffeinated young people help pave the way for your business and branding success? Only if you look behind the surface and pay attention to the real message. This morning I was enjoying my morning Diet Dew and listening to the radio. The “Dewmocracy” commercial came across the radio letting me know that “I could be part of a crucial moment in history…helping to choose the next permanent flavor of the Mountain Dew.” I’m sure that this “historic” moment pales in comparison to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, or marching on Selma, but I have always been fascinated by the unique and provocative ad campaigns that my favorite soda churns out.
You can Design Your Own Tee shirts with funny quotes, jokes, funny slogans like that of “If I was you, I wouldn’t be me”, “Eat. Sleep. Mate. Repeat”, “Check out My iBone”, “Save the trees. Eat a beaver”, “I suffer from premature infatuation”, “My Roommate’s An Idiot”, “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, set them on fire”, “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah”, “Intolerance will not be Tolerated”, “Where there’s a will… I want to be in it”, etc.
You’ll need to make sure that you submit a good design that works well on a T-shirt. What looks good on paper, a website, or a sticker or poster, might not work as well on a T shirt.
Since their beginning, Threadless have also grown in the number of brands they have. They released the Threadless Select Series, as well as Threadless Kids. The Threadless Select series is a curated, high-quality brand. Much like standard t-new shirt design processes, Threadless personally selects the designers–they don’t run a competition. These designs tend to be more expensive, but they’re also better quality and very cool looking. Threadless Kids is, quite obviously, a Threadless series for children. They sell kids sizes as well as pajamas and other stuff for the little ones.
Now what does this one say about you: “How can you eat your pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” That you are a strict mom? Of course not! It says that you are a Pink Floyd fan! It is after all, a line from their cult classic Another brick in the Wall, the song that talks about needing no education.
White is typically the least expensive T-shirt color available. So, if you are working with limited funds is recommended that you choose this particular color. Shirts without pockets and those with like color sleeves usually cost less, as well.
Almost all of your site visitors wear t-shirts. They are a target market for t-shirts. The thing is, even if they look for t-shirts elsewhere online, the market is so big, so saturated, that it is hard to find anything. It takes a real effort. Yet, if your web site or blog is already of interest to them, you can show them shirts that they’ll buy.
If you are a band that is thinking about doing up a run of shirts, you need to keep a few things in mind. One, you want to get a design that is eye catching and cool, so people will take notice. This is free promotion for your band, so put some thought into it. Second, make sure the band name is visible on it. It is cool to have something stealthy, but save that for when you are already rolling in the dough. If you find the right person to do the shirt design and right printer to do the T shirt production, sales can make the difference between making it as a band and living in your Mom’s basement. It is your choice.
