Do you know that there is a colour for each day of the week?

“The colour of the The Day” project was commissioned and produced for the Biennale Design 2004 in Saint-Etienne, France. This project aims to investigate the relationship between colour association and specific days of the week.

In this project, a survey was conducted where the following questions were given to 75 people in the creative industry from 20 different countries: What colour do you associate each day of the week?

The outcome of the colour for each day is then determined based on the majority vote. The shirts could either be worn according to the calendar days, or more intuitively, according to the actual mood of the wearer

The results are as follows:

If you are looking for the best t-shirt printer in Singapore, you are at the right page as we are going to share tips and guide to choosing the right t-shirt printer for your every printing need.

Tip 1:  Research the credibility of the company. Not everything is about price.

Before you print with a t-shirt printing company, you are advised to do a research on the credibility of the company. This is important as there are many t-shirt printers in Singapore ranging from really experienced companies to newcomers. Emailing all the t-shirt printers you find on Google search and choosing the one that quotes the cheapest price might not necessarily guarantee good quality and service.

We, at Ministry of Print, have been in the t-shirt printing industry for many years and have a wide Facebook fan base of more than 2, 500 people. But of course, having many Facebook likes does not necessarily mean the t-shirt company you have chanced upon is popular among many. There are t-shirt printers who have purchased Facebook likes and do not garner genuine likes from their audience. Our likes, are built up over the few years we joined Facebook, and are painstakingly earned from our good service and reputation.

Additionally, we have printed T-shirts for numerous prestigious companies such as Disney, Garena, and JTC, etc. Our long list of clientele is testament to our reliability and impeccable service.

Tip 2:  Get a t-shirt printer that make your t-shirt design suitable for t-shirt printing. Ask them how your t-shirt design is used to print your t-shirt.

Sometimes you may have a design that is drawn or some idea/image you have gotten online, which you need a t-shirt printer to put it in place. However, most of the t-shirt printers do not hire graphic designer as it is expensive to get one just to do editing work.

At Ministry of Print, we have our very own in-house t-shirt designer just to cater to your t-shirt artwork needs. Whether it is hand-drawn or low resolution design, our MOP designer can edit your design to facilitate the t-shirt printing process. Furthermore, our designer will provide you a design proposal before we print your t-shirt so you are always assured that your t-shirt will be printed exactly to your requirements. All these are free of charge as long as you print with us! As our slogan says, we strive to make you look awesome!

We hope these guide and tips will help you to make an informed choice while choosing a good t-shirt printer.

Natural printing is one of the simple ways you can print your t-shirt. Unlike most t-shirt printing methods, it uses materials from nature such as leaves as such it preserve the ephemeral beauty of nature. This form of art goes all the way back from Leonardo Da Vinci who perhaps inspired by fossils.

Besides being inexpensive, natural printing has limitless possibilities. Its print can be created by putting paint on nature material such as flower, vegetable, leaves. Here in this tutorial, we are applying the prints onto a t-shirt.

Material required:

  1. Leaves or any other nature materials that have a texture
  2. Bath towels
  3. Newspaper & newsprint
  4. Assorted Fabric paint
  5. Cotton T-Shirt
  6. Straight Pins
  7. Hand Roller
  8. Sponge Brush
  9. Iron

Step 1: Create a work space preferable on a flat table and cover it with newspaper. Lay the printing surface with a layer of bath towels.

Step 2: Place the cotton t-shirt on the towel and secure it with pins

Step 3: Select the nature material that you want to use for your t-shirt eg. Leaf

Step 4: Apply a few thin layer of fabric paint on the leaf

Step 5: Carefully put the leaf with its painted side facing down onto the t-shirt. Cover the leaf with piece of newsprint and use a Hand roller to roll over it gently. Remove the newsprint.

Step 6: Slowly lift the leaf and check the design. Repeat this process until design is complete. Let the paint dry.

Step 7: Cover the design with a piece of cloth and iron the t-shirt to allow the paint to set. Let it dry for 2 days before putting it for a wash

You’ll probably throw on a T-shirt on a slack day to school or a boyfriend t-shirt when heading to bed but I bet you didn’t know T-shirts are a good way of advertising as well! T-shirts are more than just comfort wear. Also, the first thing  you notice about others is what they are wearing. A humble T-shirt can serve as an affordable form of advertising tool. It not only costs lesser than a print advertisement, it is also mobile (because people wearing it walk around) and also have a longer lifespan.

One of the most common types of using T-shirts as part of an overall branding tactic would be through staff uniform. Staff uniform not only makes your workers look smart and more professional, it also increases your credibility as a whole.
