I discovered customink.com the other day and decided to give them a shot at printing a t-shirt for me. For those of you not familiar with CustomInk…in a nutshell they print low minimum runs of promotional products such as t-shirts (obviously), hats, mugs, bags, etc…check out their site.
I ended up just purchasing one shirt and it cost me about $25 with shipping. There are less expensive places out there, but I read good things about this company so I decided to spend the extra few bucks.
As for the design. In middle school and high school I use to find tons of cool shirts in small record shops, many of them promoting old punk bands. More often than not the shirts would be printed in just single and maybe 2 colors. I’m assuming because it was cheap and easy to do for bands to print and produce. So I thought it would be fun to go for this same look. I decided resurrected an old pinhole photo I used for a promotional poster we used a while back. The contrasty image has an old 70’s punk/rock-n-roll feel, which I thought would work great to have printed on a black shirt.
Overall, I’m pretty darn happy with the quality of the shirt, printing, the customer service and ordering process with CustomInk. They are worth giving a shot, if you want to print a shirt or two for fun.[hr top]
