CaptureT-shirt printing can be pretty fun and frivolous. I love it when it’s both, as it can really brighten up an outfit. Well, a pair of jeans probably.

This fruit sticker printed number by Opening Ceremony from Net a Porter is the designer take on what would be me sticking old bar or mats or similar onto a piece of card, taking a photo and putting it onto a tee. Thus it is more creative and artistic, yet considerably more expensive. I do rather love my bargain basement approach, but this is the real deal. Check out their range for other great t-shirt ideas that you could do yourself….!!

Don’t say I didn’t tell you. School is looming and I know you haven’t sewn on any of your uniform tapes yet. And no, sellotape won’t cut it, not this year. It didn’t work last year to be fair, and in fact pretending there was a label thief wasn’t exactly your best hour either.
This term why not take a nice easy short cut and let us do some posh embroidery for you, you can totally say you did it yourself and majored in advanced needlework at finishing school. One upmumship is alive and kicking it’s stilettos. Hard. We love it! tarquin towel

I love a bit of a sweaty work out, whether it be going for a run, exerting myself to get to the fridge for more cake, there’s always energy needed. And now I’ve discovered the beauty of moisture wicking I am unstoppable. Well, until I run out of steam that is, which takes about 5 minutes actually running and 4 cake trips, whichever is more likely. Ahem.

Anyway, here’s a Sweaty Betty number, which really does stop you getting all soggy. The fabric acts as a sort of sponge, drawing ikky sweat into it’s fibres and keeping you dry. The latest fads and trends in exercise and sport do expect you to get as revoltingly soggy as possible, so something that doesn’t weigh you down is most desirable. But, ew, don’t forget to wash it occasionally!

Absolutely love this really unique ┬át-shirt design, for a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro that’s looking and advertising for sponsors. I really like that each of our t-shirts are made individually to order, so you can have a variety of designs that are slightly (or wholly) different, so really facilitating smaller projects that don’t want to set up a screen print run or make a bulk order. The thought that someone is doing this for a good cause and in such a cool yet nifty way is really brilliant.

Hope to see this at the summit of the mountain in a few months or weeks time!

One of our most awesome designers, Matt, has been hard at working on his t-shirt alchemy. Turning plain garments into pure genius designs, we’re mega lucky to have such a talented chap on the team. Yes, I’m angling for a cup of tea as well, but it’s totally true!

I love this kit he’s designed for a local footie team, just the biz. If you need any help with your artwork,, then just drop us a line, and if you ask Matt very very nicely……..he may just make you a cuppa as well!

There’s a new kid on the block and it looks a bit like this!

Our new sports shirts are the perfect way for you to personalise your own sports team’s kit or to give your own running or playing look a fantastic sporty makeover for tennis or running or something else of an outdoor nature. Contrast arm stripes are the real deal and you can upload an image or play around with fonts until you have created your own unique sporting brand. hey you can even do both.

I can’t quite get over how pro these ones look. Even in pink!

One of the nicest things about my job is seeing happy customers excitedly tweeting pictures of their parcels from us. it’s always hugely appreciated to get the positive feedback, and it’s a great forum to share your designs as well.

I was particularly tickled by a tweet last week which was favourited something like 90 times by friends of friends of friends of the customer. It’s *practically* gone viral. So a huge thank you to all our customers who want to let us know that they like what they’ve designed. It’s so much nicer than just sending parcels out into the ether and hopefully it encourages other people to have a play with our website too!
