Print On Demand T-shirts

Filed under: Uncategorized — scottnelson @ 5:37 pm

I’ll always have a warm spot in my heart for Silk Screen T shirts. Why?  Well the FIRST time I ever made money drawing was when I illustrated the 1986 Boston Red Sox Team in caricatures while an art school student.  Back then the color art I produced was half toned by the silk screen shop (in black and white ..similar to news paper print) and I sold them for $4.50 to my friends and family members.  That is I sold them until Bill Buckner put an end to sales that year.  (Sorry Bill…   I still love ya.  )   I then went on to do color drawings of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins for companies representing the actual teams and they opted for the color printing instead of the black and white style I was doing.  Printing results were mixed (especially with the Celtics shirts) back then but it was always fun seeing how they’d come out and it was always a thrill to see someone walk by you wearing your design.

Today you can essentially print ANYTHING without needing to create lots of different silk screen screens. Sure, the price will go down per design if you’re printing thousands but since I’m usually only doing a few dozen shirts at best,  for my dime the results (see samples below)  is Print On Demand businesses like ZAZZLE.  The quality is second to none and I can offer essentially ANYTHING I draw on shirt.   If you like these shirts or would like some custom designed and printed for your event or product line idea, stop by my website at and check out more.
