About this project

I've been looking for beautiful "Art-to-Wear"- With inspirational or amusing messages, and unique artwork, too.  I couldn't find anything in the marketplace that  matched my vision.  So I have decided to create my own designs to apply to tee-shirts.

I currently have over 50 designs ready to print.  Many reflect my Christian beliefs, some are uplifting and inspiring messages, and some will make you chuckle!(My video provides a "sneak-peek" of my art , so please be sure to take a look.)

If my project is successful I will be able to purchase shirts and have them printed. I will also use the funds to develop a web site to feature my collection.

 If I am fortunate enough to exceed my goal I will be able to print a wider selection of designs, and perhaps even apply them to other items, such as tote bags and handbags.  It would be a great blessing to have my art and my messages available for the world to see.

If  I receive the support for my vision, this will be the most important and significant art project I have ever done, and that would be awesome!

HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT MY T-SHIRTS:

All tees will be sublimation printed on “Vapor” t-shirts (a synthetic that is supersoft and “breathable”)

This type of printing causes the art to become a part of the fibers, which means it will never fade or change in any way. And they will be washable, of course. The only limitation with sublimation is that the printing must be done on white or light-colored fabrics. My tees will be available in all sizes and will sell for $18-$20.

For those who prefer 100% cotton, or would like a darker color shirt, a direct-to-garment printing process will be used.  This is also machine washable and has a nice hand (feel).  The price for a t-shirt in any size will be $24.

Thank you for making my dream a reality!

Risks and challenges

I am well-prepared with my great selection of designs and my suppliers for
t-shirts and printing. So the biggest challenge will be getting my pledge rewards fulfilled in a timely manner.

Having allowed over a month to process, pack and ship, I feel I can meet my delivery deadline. I have a studio with enough space, and I have helpers to assist me in getting the job done.
