Make a Statement Without Saying a Word

A few years ago I created a funny t-shirt for my daughter for Christmas. It wouldn’t make sense to explain the inside joke, but it was a big hit. Within the next few months I made more for other kids, my husband, my dad, and later some other relatives. I created a logo for my swing choir and created t-shirts, bags, etc., for the members.

When requests started coming in, I made more things. Within a short time, I had a little, mini-business going on. It’s amazing how many people buy t-shirts expressing a sentiment, position, or just to make a joke. Just about every topic imaginable is covered. You can get soccer tshirts, celebrity wearables, shirts to tout your hobbies. You Meyers fans can even get all the Eclipse apparel you could ever want. (Really?)

Lately, I’ve been thinking of jumping back into the t-shirt arena, but in more of a principle/political aspect. Yes, I did create some political shirts earlier, but things have changed so drastically in the past couple of years that the market is entirely new. And there’s so much more to say.

Do you have a great idea, slogan, or statement that you think I should put on a shirt? Share it here and I’ll try to make something of it. I’m good with typography, but definitely not an artist. Keep that in mind.

    Speaking of Twilight, I’ve been playing around with the idea of a golden eye image above the phrase ‘Live by the Golden Rule.’
    Or something like that. The idea hasn’t refined any further than that, but I like it.
    If you do anything with this suggestion, please – I’d like to hear about it! 🙂
