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.

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:

What is the colour that you are feeling today?

These are some creative t-shirts we found online 🙂 Some of them may contain inappropriate content but we think it is pretty creative! What do you think?

Hello guys! Here are some pictures of the behind the scenes of Xiaxue’s Guide to Life on T-shirt Printing!

Roy introducing the silkscreen board and how it is used. Silkscreen printing is most recommended for bulk printing, so if you are looking to print your class t-shirts or corporate t-shirts, silkscreen printing is the most common option.

Keon positioning the silkscreen board onto the body of the t-shirt. This is to ensure that the position of the image printed is as accurate as possible.

It’s Xiaxue’s turn to print her very own t-shirt!

Almost complete!

Oh yay look at the nicely printed t-shirts! Awesome or what.
