Have you ever had to go through the rigorous task of searching for a spot color to match your CMYK colors? If so here is a nice little two minute video on how to convert CMYK to Pantone© colors. This is a simple but detailed video tutorial for beginners in Adobe Illustrator CS4. It should benefit you the next time you need to send a design to your printer and are having a tough time making the color conversion.

They’ve put together a quick customer survey that should take you less than 5 minutes to fill out. Help them out if you can and tell ‘em the T Addict sent ya’.

Jud from Shirtfightfunny drama last week
The reference to “EZ” in the caption of the design is because in a previous thread
The whole design/post was done in good humor and some of that was missed by those browsing. It wasn’t an attempt to “out” any designers as thieves, just make light of the situation. Too funny Jud!

In my days of covering t-shirts, I’ve seen quite a few gift products packaged in with shipped tees. Typically it’s the standard sticker, flyer, or button. In other cases I have seen cards and koozies. There are two accomplishments you should strive to achieve when doing a gift with one of your sold tees. The first being function and the second being creativity.
Function is the most important, because if you can get your customer to use your gift repeatedly, then your brand will receive free advertising from the countless eyeballs seeing it. Brand awareness can sometimes be the big difference maker in your sales if your product is good. The more people that see your high-quality wears, the more that will buy.
Creativity is almost just as important, because you can create fanatics for your brand. If they open your package and their only expectations are the t-shirt, but then receive an added bonus that makes them smile….then you’ve just hit a home run.
If you can find a way to combine both function and creativity, then you’ll have a customer for life. Referrals from your newly converted brand evangelist is the easiest money you’ll ever make.
