Teerific T-Shirt Review
The t-shirt they sent is called I Love Life Boy and was designed by STMTS. (I don’t really know how to start going about pronouncing that name.) I think it’s a pretty nice design and it got the thumbs up from my better half too. The image is of a kid in sunglasses and a tank-top with “I heart Life” on it. The actual design itself looks like it was just a quick vectorization of a photo. That’s just an observation not a criticism. However it was done, it is a pretty cool image. One negative point for me is that I’m not sure I want to wear a picture of someone else’s child on my t-shirt.
I think it’s an American Apparel.
I puzzled over this one for a short while. The print felt a little heavy so my first thought was that it was an oil-based screenprint but I noticed that the inside of the print, where there was no ink, was also a little harder so for a few seconds I thought that perhaps it was a DTG tee but that doesn’t make sense either because it should only print where there is color. So I looked a little closer and noticed that there was faint border around the design that was up to an inch think at some point. My first thought then was that it was an iron-on print but I don’t imagine they could print so well. So my conclusion is that it is a heat-press. I think that my only experience with heat-press printing is the printed tags that are popular these days. So I don’t know how it will stand up to washes and whether that border will disappear or not.
Absolutely no branding on the t-shirt. No care labels either. (Do a bit of research and you may find that is illegal to sell t-shirts without care labels.)
A double-sided business card with the same image on both sides, one gloss, one matte. The URL is the only useful information and the branding looks quite different from their website. There was also a small card flyer that was done a lot better and included the image from this tee. (I used the back of it to write my shopping list on. )
They have a nice clean website that is easy to navigate. And while the tee designs are clearly displayed on mockups I think they are well done. There is also a t-shirt design contest of sorts with a $200 + residuals prize but it doesn’t seem terribly active.
There seems to be about 40 mens tees and 30 ladies. Some of them are available in several colors. That’s a solid number and they work well as a collection.
While it is not really something I would wear I think the tee they sent was pretty cool. They have a pretty big selection of tees to choose from and a clean website to display them on. It’s hard to find fault with their offering as the tees mostly seem quite wearable and the designs are well done but they are a little generic. Nothing really jumped out and screamed “BUY ME!”.
