One day, we had a group of customers who came in and asked if we could fulfil their order of 50 pieces of t-shirts with a turnaround time of one day. Of course we could. Digital Transfer sample

The t-shirts were for a wedding for one of their family members. To commemorate the wedding, all the family members donned the nicely printed t-shirts with the faces of the groom and bride.

If you have a family t-shirt you wish to print, especially if you wish to include pictures or photographs, digital transfer is often the chosen type of printing as it is fast, vibrant and detailed. With digital transfer, you are able to print the fine details of the photos, with no colour limit.

We are very happy to have fulfilled our customers’ order and also would like to wish them a very blessed and and blissful marriage.

Recently, family t-shirts have been in high demand as families wish to have a form of identity when they go for activities such as picnics or outings. Hence, we’ve received a lot of requests to print family t-shirts, the largest order being a family made up of 200 over members! With your very own printed family t-shirts, it creates a sense of identity and closeness between the family members during outdoor activities.

The weekends are coming, are you spending time with your family? We are, and we hope you enjoy your family time. Have a pleasant weekend, everyone!

Love,

The MOP team

Happy-Chinese-New-Year-ecardHere’s wishing a very Happy Chinese New Year 2014 to all our valued customers and business partners. Please note that MOP will be closed from the 30th Jan (half day) to the 4th Feb. Business will resume on the 5th of February, Wednesday.

What is Chinese New Year without yummy festive goodies such as the ever so popular pineapple tarts?  But before you start munching on these sinful snacks, check out the calories in the different snacks you’ll see while visiting your friends and relatives.

It’s okay, we can always eat first, think later.

We chanced upon the very talented designer, Eileen Kwa’s illustrations on the web and thought it would be a good idea to have the festive goodies printed on some t-shirts. Check them out:

There can never be a time when t-shirt goes out of style. You can wear t-shirts to schools, to work, to play and even to sleep. Now that it’s the summer season (not that it matters a lot in Singapore since it is summer all year round which gives you even more reason to wear t-shirts!), t-shirts will be a preferred choice of light clothing due to the hot and humid weather.

Whether it’s a basic single-colour, collared style, or with sequins, mirrors and glitter as embellishments, this is the season to wear the t-shirts. Even major commercial brands such as Ed Hardy, Dior, Mango and Armani Exchange produce t-shirts for sale. In fact, t-shirts are one of their methods to reach out to consumers as they are slightly more affordable than branded high-end clothing.

We had a great time teaching Xiaxue how to silkscreen her t-shirt. She will be giving one t-shirt that she personally printed to a lucky viewer. Stay tuned to the Episode at http://www.clicknetwork.tv/ where Xiaxue comes to Ministry of Print!

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.

Let’s see how people from all over the world have used T-shirts as a form of advertising:

 

This T-shirt was worn by sales personnel of Eu Yan Sang and mailed to their prospective customers as free gifts to promote their new hair product launch.

 

This creative T-shirt was given out to new interns of an advertising agency in New York. No wonder they belong to the creative industry!

Look what the amazing Fedex team came up with!

 

Japanese designers made used of textile and texture to create an interesting t-shirt.
