Bachelorette Party Shirts:

If you’re looking for unique personalized gifts or bachelorette party ideas, custom t shirts are always a fun but easy idea. We can help you with the t-shirt design and the t-shirt printing.


Custom Tank Tops:

Jocelyn was on her way to Estes Park, CO to teach a wellness class that she created called Hoop Yogini for the Wake Up Festival event and realized last minute that she wanted to bring some custom tank tops with her branding. She reached us through our request for quote link in our catalog and after a little back and forth, we got them done and shipped them to her in Estes Park just in the nick of time.  Whew!

Check out her website at !

Custom Onesies

Igor’s T-shirts can airbrush, embroider or heat transfer custom text or graphics onto your baby clothes, kid’s clothes or onesies. This would be a unique gift for a birthday present, baby shower, baptism, etc. etc. You get the idea! No minimums at Igor’s T-shirts. Same day service when possible.


We’ve been back for a week and a half and there’s been a lot of catching up to do, but I thought it would be fun to finally share a little taste of the adventures we had making custom t-shirts at our first festival…in STURGIS!

The drive from Denver to Sturgis is about 7 hours when pulling a trailor full of 1000 t-shirts.  We had a rough start.  We were originally going to take my dad’s camper, but it broke the morning we were supposed to leave, so we had to borrow a trailer and REPACK EVERYTHING.  Did I mention it was a ROUGH start?  We were on the road about 12 hours after our intended departure of 10:00am.  Yep.  We started our road trip at 10pm.  We had to stop for a little snooze and made it by noon the next day.

Sturgis 2014

This is what 1000 t-shirts on a trailer looks like if you ever wondered.

We camped next to the guys and gals at Led Sled who were super cool and fun. They were riding the coolest motorcycles I saw anywhere in Sturgis. All custom Sportsters. Pat Patterson was there judging other custom bikes and they also had a vendor booth. The bikes I saw them riding around rekindled my WANT for a Sportster! (I dropped a motorcycle once, then after having kids I gave up the whole idea. But now…??)

N.A.D.S. and The Drone Hunter

The Drone Hunter bus

The Drone Hunter and N.A.D.S. are the customers that brought us to Buffalo Chip.  They had drone shooting events at the range almost every day which led to a visit from the FAA.  They had the Drone Hunter on stage before every concert and they were interviewed by The Today Show, Fox News  and the O’reilly factor.

Speaking of concerts…we saw the Zac Brown Band, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, ZZ top and more!

Super perk!

This is at the Zac Brown Band concert which was AWESOME

Our Vendor Booth

We were making shirts for N.A.D.S. while also offering custom shirts for sale.  Being total newbs, it took us a few days to get everything right.  Some crazy rain and weather the first few days along with the stickiest mud that turned into cinder blocks attached to the bottom of our shoes didn’t help.

Inside joke among a group of of guys from Nebraska…One is the President and the other is the Vice President of this particular City they are referring to.

These photo heat transfer shirts were our biggest hits! Photos of people on their motorcycles.

T-shirt ideas are everywhere!

This was our neighbor Keith A.K.A. “Bone Daddy” who is an amazing metal artist. We made him and his granddaughter some shirts and got some goods in return.

All in all, it was a great time and a HUGE learning experience. We look forward to doing another festival in the future and having all of our ducks in a row for it.  We did TONS of research before going and were well prepared, but there’s lots of stuff you just don’t know until you try it!

This Miley Cyrus shirt was created with an image provided by our customer and applied to a 50/50 t-shirt with an 11×17 heat transfer.




Iron on transfers on light colored tote bags look amazing. Full color prints and no minimums!

These personalized custom tote bags were made for a bachelorette party.  The bride got the bag that says “Ring” while the other ladies got the ones that says “Fling”.  The bride-to-be loved them!

Custom tote bags make great personalized gifts.  Canvas tote bags in particular look amazing with full color printing by heat transfer.  Monogrammed tote bags are another option!


Our Customer took this photo at a Method Man concert and had this custom T-shirt made to wear to her next Method Man concert.  Great photo!

We put the photo on the shirt using a heat transfer and Igor Airbrushed the text. Sorry, our photo doesn’t really do her photo justice.  


We are having an incredibly busy summer!! We are so grateful! But, that’s why the blog hasn’t been getting much attention from us lately.  We want to get back to sharing some of our great customer inspired designs, so here’s one big post of a few of our custom heat transfer tees that we actually stopped to take pictures of:

“Downtown Arby’s” t-shirt. I haven’t seen Downton Abby but I totally get what’s going on here.


Iron-on transfers are an EXCELLENT alternative to screen printing on t-shirts when:

a) you need a small quantity

b)you need them last minute

c)you have more than a few colors in your graphics

d)you have light colored shirts (dark colors work too, but quality is higher on light colored shirts)

Screen printing requires an initial set-up fee which can be cost prohibitive in small quantities.  Each additional color adds to the cost significantly.  It is very rare that a screen printer can ever do something same day…or even within a couple days. If you need more than 20 shirts and your design is only one -three colors, than screen-printing is probably a great option for you, but heat transfer printing can be quicker and more affordable in many situations.

Today is Chinese New Year and it begins the Year of the Horse. Do you think the Denver Broncos playing at the Super Bowl this weekend is a freakin’ coincidence??? It’s in the stars for us my fellow Broncos fans!!


This is the T-shirt I (Crystal) will be wearing this Sunday and regularly for the rest of the year.  We can make one of these t-shirts for you or we can make anything else your Broncos spirit desires!  CALL US @ 303-750-7281!




In case you haven’t heard, Colorado is making history this year by being the first state to legalize marijuana.  Whether you are in favor or not, there are lots of people celebrating and coming to Colorado just for this reason.

SO, obviously a T-shirt is in order!

…and if you can believe it, this “I got 5280′ high in Denver, Colorado” T-shirt design was imagineered by Grandpa Joe! How hip is he??

Marijuana tourism has begun! Just Google:”colorado marijuana tours” and you will see what I mean.

So, to the Coloradoans who want to celebrate this new era and to everyone visiting our beautiful state specifically to smoke it legally, this T-shirt is for you.



We made this Denver Broncos T-shirt for a customer who is going to give it to her brother as gift. I think it was an inside joke or something. 😉

If you’re interested in having a custom graphic put on a t-shirt, give us a call! 303-750-7281

I went to my first big Yelp party in early December.  It was a great time and I hope to go to many many more!  Lots of free stuff and fun people!  I had to represent with a unique custom T-shirt and since it was a Pop Art Factory themed party, I thought I should be accompanied by none other than THE Andy Warhol.

So, I made a 3-D Andy Warhol T shirt!

We (Andy and I) got pet a lot throughout the night and here is where he got styled into a fauxhawk.

Rebeca, Emily and I got our faces painted too.

I made these earrings:

And here are some shots to show the vibe of the night.  I highly recommend attending one of these if you get the chance! There is lots of free food and drink and there were break dancers as well!


We made these super fun shirts for the Nyffeler Family Vaca using iron-on transfers.
