Putting the name of your child onto his / her t-shirt is an advert to everybody who does not know their name, perfect for customer services, but for a four-year-old who doesn't understand that all not all adults are friendly. Over the many years printing t-shirts and such like, I have pointed this out to many parents. The prevalence for putting your name onto t-shirt is growing in fashion, especially on children's garments. This blog comes under; just because you can, should you.
I remember a parent in my office wanting to put the name of her child onto the back of a t-shirt. I consider it my professional duty to point out the wisdom of this action; I gave this illustration by saying "if a strange can up to your child and said 'Hi Johnny Mummy said it was okay to come with me' " she saw the sense and refrained. Think before you print.
I have not posted any pictures of the cats. So, this post is for all cat lovers out there (as they say in DJ-land). This was sample t-shirts printed for a shop in town. I can not remember where it is, although, but funnily enough, I did pass it the other day and this t-shirt came to mind. I am still trying to remember where I was. Never I am sure it will come back to me sooner or later.
This has gone on for centuries and still does (cash for clothes). People collecting old clothes and repaired them and reselling them. The period I have in mind was the early 1800’s in the East End of London. It was mainly the Jewish community which did this.
Here is a constructon worker relaxing on a steel gerder. In early 20th Century it might have been observed that it was only working men who wore vests or singlets. I would added that working in shirts and waistcoats would have been uncomfortable, removing them would made it easier to work in. There could be other reasons ; the clothes would have been expensive to replace. As seen in the adjacent photo of a steel worker relaxing on the empire state building circa 1931.

this blog is about printing and special designing for garments. I have come to believe that designing of printing t-shirts is grossly misunderstood. I hope to offer a few pointers.
