DTG Friday - Gone Surfing!

This week's DTG Friday design was inspired by the longer days and milder weather of summer. Yes yes, we know that the Central Coast can suffer from some serious bouts of June Gloom, but even if it's a bit foggy along the coast, you'll always see surfers out in the water. From Pismo Beach all the way up to the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse and beyond, this area is home to some pretty epic surf spots.

Just don't forget your wetsuit, because the water doesn't get much over 55 chilly degrees. 

We felt that the best shirt for a retro design like this was the Alternative "destroyed" t-shirt. I can't believe how super soft this shirt is - it is EXACTLY like my very own 'favorite' shirt that I refuse to throw away. It's just frayed enough to look like a vintage shirt you just bought at the thrift shop or found hiding in your parents' attic.

Pismo Beach has been a popular surf spot since the birth of the sport, and it also hosts a huge car-show every year (along with it's own weekly Donut Derelicts). So what's a cooler combo than a cherry '57 Chevy Nomad wagon with longboards on it? I think they go together like bacon and chocolate.

We printed the design on an apple green and a vintage white shirt. Both are available in sizes small through 2X. To order yours, click here. 

Maybe you know someone who's visited Pismo Beach, and longs to return? This would make an excellent gift. Know a car guy that surfs? Perfect gift! Know someone who hoards anything with a '57 Chevy Nomad wagon on it? Necessary gift!

Order now and try out this super soft Pismo Beach t-shirt for yourself. Or admire it's softness before you gift wrap it and send it on it's way! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you next week!

Introducing DTG Fridays at J.Carroll

DTG Friday is one part silly art department, one part equally silly front office staff, and one part 'why the heck not?'

Every Friday we'll be printing something that strikes our fancy onto shirts or apparel using our DTG Printer, and for a limited time, the shirts will be available for sale. 

Of course now you ask, what is "DTG"? DTG is the Direct To Garment method of printing on apparel. 

It's basically a gigantic version of your little desktop ink jet printer, but instead of printing on paper, we're printing on t-shirts! Direct to Garment is great for doing small runs of full color prints, as there is less setup time and cost involved than regular screen printing.

Let's say you have some artwork that you kept from your child's kindergarten years, and want to give them a unique present for their high school graduation. We can scan that artwork and print it on a shirt, tank top, hoodie, or even a tote bag. As long as the fabric is 90-100% cotton, and light in color (the printer does not print white ink), it will come out just like the artwork!

This week's DTG Friday 'design' started with our graphics department's love of Grumpy Cat and a mild obsession with the octopus. The Grumpy Kraken was created by one of our designer's husbands, who opened the email containing the image and immediately said (ok, shouted) 'THIS NEEDS TO GO ON A T-SHIRT!'. A few were made, and in the process, DTG Fridays were born. 

The Grumpy Kraken is printed on a Gildan 6.1oz Ultra Cotton T-Shirt. Click here to purchase your very own Grumpy Kraken!
