There are many options for people who want to start their own t-shirt business. Even online there are several roads you can go down. Recently over at Tee Junction Adam Fletcher compared and contrasted some of your options and it makes good reading for those in the tee biz. This post is from a while back but as my regular readers know, I have been pretty busy recently with the new addition to my family. Anyway, check out this article at Tee Junction: Design Contests vs. Mass Production.
Today I read another interview over at Tee Junction with Jeremy Kalgreen of Amorphia Apparel chose Spreadshirt as his method of choice. It is also an interesting read. There are many great articles at Tee Junction but I’m glad that I can read them on my feed reader as the light text on dark background really hurts my eyes.
Thanks for the mention, highly appreciate it and glad you’ve like those last two posts. I had no idea that dark background colour might be hard to read for some people, I’ll go and do a little survey and see if it needs to be lightened, thanks for the feedback, I really had no idea.
Are you still based in Japan? Whereabouts? I’ll be there on holiday in a couple of weeks, very excited 🙂
I’m in Yokohama. Been here for nearly eight years now. I hope you enjoy your trip here, there’s lots of fun stuff to do and the weather should be perfect in a couple of weeks. Coming to Tokyo?
Yep, well starting there anyway, not sure what other places I’ll get to. What would you recommend I do in Tokyo or elsewhere?
If you are there on Sunday you need to head to Harajuku and check out the cosplayers outside Meiji Jingu. You can also check out the rock-a-billy dancers around the same area. Then for some peace head into Meiji Jingu (one of biggest shrines in Japan) for a bit of culture and if you are lucky you’ll get to see a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony. Of course if you want to check out some t-shirt stores, there are UT and now Graniph flagship stores.
I recommend walking to Harajuku from Shibuya along Omotesando-dori. That would really show you different sides of Japanese youth culture.
Great I’ll do all these things 🙂 thanks for the tips. I’ll be there 6th-17th April if you’re around to meetup you have my mail. Cheers, Adam.
