This is going to be very interesting to follow. Zazzle
The way they are doing this is by improving the digitizing process of preparing artwork for embroidery and taking out a lot of the associated costs with that process. I am sure that this is going to be an experimental run where they will have to continually tighten up the restrictions. Can you imagine an oversized piece of artwork embroidered on a shirt with over 50,000 stitches? That would be about $130+ with regular domestic market rates.
Congrats on the innovation Zazzle

I understand not all of you care about the design portion of the t-shirt making process. It is a part that I am hooked on because that is where the magic happens. I want to feature a video about creating an Electric Zombie
In the video Ray Frenden is working on doing an illustration for the clothing line “Electric Zombie”. EZ’s creative director, Kyle, told Ray to go wild and come up with a rough sketch that he thought fit with the company image. Ray came up with a great initial zombie design and the rest of the video takes us through the process of editing and altering that design to get it to the final product that would appear on the shirts.
One of the most fascinating decisions made comes early on in the tutorial in which Ray decides that in order to fill some ‘negative space’ (empty area) he needed to add a spinal column. This idea was then altered to change the spinal column from a veiny structure to one with wires running through it.
Be sure to check out this great tutorial. Not only will you have fun illustrating a zombie, but you’ll get to learn tons of new stuff about color choices, halftones, layering, and shadows.

T-shirts are getting so easy to obtain. It’s almost like they aren’t even illegal anymore…oh wait, they aren’t. As you are well aware, I am a t-shirt addict. Part of that addiction is fed with sick designs that are thought provoking and highly skilled. The simple text t-shirt just doesn’t give me my fix anymore, no matter how clever the saying is. I cruise the graphic design blogs all the time just looking for a t-shirt nugget that they rarely disperse. That wasn’t the case with Abduzeedo
This graphic design blog will occasionally do t-shirt posts but they mainly focus on all things related to design. Check them out when you get a chance.

The title of this post sums up the feeling I had during the discovery of Tattoo Golf
The designs lean towards tattoo trends but the actual products are golf related. Wouldn’t you know….Tattoo Golf might just be on to something. It certainly is a sport that anyone can enjoy, let’s just hope for this company that there are enough inked-up duffers to fill the niche.

I am a big fan of two tools that we use daily to increase our growth and readership at T Addict. One is our analytics package that allows us to see where our traffic comes from so we can make sure we are catering to the right crowd. The other trusted tool we use daily is our feedreader for new products, announcements, and just to feed the t-shirt addiction we have. The reason that I mention these two key components for our growth is because we notice a little traffic was being thrown our way from TeeReader.com
We checked it out and were pleased to see that it is a public feedreader for t-shirt blogst-shirt news

At first you can’t really tell what it is – other than a big brown blob. If only design by humans printed the shirt closer to the submission colors.
