Megan’s Product Pick: Mini Stripes!

Now that summer 2012 is fully underway, it is time to think about clothing that you can wear on vacation. I am fully into the nautical trend this year, and love the look for men and women alike. One of my favorite nautical staples is the stripe. I think stripes are classically cool and can be flattering when styled right.

The mini stripe is a pattern that can be worn by just about anyone. Since the stripes are subtle, they will not enhance any flaws. So, you can be on trends wearing stripes, but in a tasteful and forgiving way. I love these new tees; they have the right amount of classic and edge. A one-color logo screen print would look great on these!

The Men’s mini stripe notch tee: Made of 100% ring spun cotton, this tee is so soft to the touch! Choose from 3 classic stripe combinations. Love the contrast tipping around the v-neck too!

Megan’s Product Pick: NEON t-shirts and accessories

I was a wee little one when neon clothing and accessories were all the rage in the 1980’s, but I still got on the trend bandwagon with OP (Ocean Pacific) jams and a paint-splattered tee. I though I was pretty cool, considering that my trendsetting Grandmother had the matching ensemble. The 90’s were not much better, giving us another regurgitation of neon, worn by ravers and club kids. Glow sticks, makeup, glitter and hair dye were doused with neon hues. It seemed the more the better.

Kim’s Promotional Product Pick of the Week: Promotional T-Shirts

So in short, I love this commercial.

How fun is this and what a great idea? Pick up a custom tee shirt for each state you visit. Or better yet, how about each city? Alright, alright. Not trying to get wild and crazy. But I am a fan. Not endorsing the car. I can’t vouch for that one. Although I did have a Civic once that we ran into the ground… But I digress.

Custom T-shirts to the Rescue in Pi Versus Tau

This week mathematical enthusiasts around the world recognized June 28th as National Tau day. While March 14th (3/14) has long been acknowledged as Pi Day due to its numerical resemblance to the first three numbers in the decimal expansion of pi, proponents of tau insist the holiday be more appropriately referred to as “Half Tau Day.”

Tau advocates, or Tauists, assert that tau equals approximately 6.28, which is twice as much as pi, and therefore believe that the number itself is more significant than pi alone. Efforts to replace pi with tau have been ongoing for about ten years but it was Michael Hartl who brought widespread attention to the movement in June 2010. In “The Tau Manifesto,” a dedication to one of the most notable numbers in math, Hartl explains that pi is not factually incorrect, however, it is a “confusing and unnatural choice for the circle constant.” Pi is the ratio of circumference to diameter of a circle but tau is circumference divided by radius. Simple enough, right?

Contest Challenges Artists to Create Custom T Shirts featuring “The Muppets”

Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.

Threadless and Disney just announced a contest searching for friendship-themed designs to decorate custom t shirts promoting this November’s brand-new full-length movie, “The Muppets.” Users must submit original designs featuring Muppets characters, which the public will then vote on to decide a winner.

The contest ends June 20th, and the winning design will be chosen on June 27th. One lucky winner will receive $2500 cash, a $250 Threadless gift certificate, the winning custom t shirt signed by The Muppets and framed next to a signed photo of the Muppets, a $250 set of collectible statues from Disney Traditions, and an autographed copy of the upcoming album, “MUPPETS: The Green Album”.

Not so confident in your artistic abilities? There are plenty of other ways to inspire the design of custom t shirts, whether you simply vote on your favorite, host your own t-shirt design competition, or solicit the help of professional artists, like those on staff at Pinnacle!

The Urban Outfitters NPR Custom T-Shirt: A Story of Irony

NPR T-ShirtThe retail brand Urban Outfitters, popular among representatives of the so-called “hipster” culture for its sometimes satirical merchandise, including graphic T-shirts such as one printed with the classic American Uncle Sam portrait and “I Want You” propaganda message with the addition of “To Buy Me a Drink,” has a new custom T-shirt in its catalog displaying a different sort of mockery.

Currently, UO is selling a custom T-shirt printed with the logo of National Public Radio, the media organization that made headlines just last month when a GOP-backed measure to defund NPR passed in the House. (By the way, NPR does not currently receive any direct federal funding; 2% of its revenue comes from grants from federally funded agencies like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Department of Education; the largest share of its revenue comes from member stations, who in turn have about 10% of their revenue from the CPB and another 6% from the local, state and federal government.)

Custom T-Shirts for “The Situation”


On my way to work this morning, a local radio station was discussing how reality star Mike “The Situation” of MTV’s Jersey Shore has one of the highest grossing phone apps ever with GTL locations and a “Grenade Dodger” game. “The Situation” already has several other businesses in the works and he also, supposedly, has a t-shirt coming out that will have a hole in the belly so you can show off your “abs”. You may not initially think of that product being custom t-shirts, but it definitely is, it promotes the brand that he is making for himself and MTV indirectly for introducing him to the world. So if someone like “The Situation” can make himself famous with custom t-shirts, think of what it can do for your business.
