At Big Frog Custom T-Shirts and More, with franchised locations across more than 13 states, graphic designers translate customers' visions into single items or fleets of custom shirts, which are priced by style and quantity and typically ready to wear within 24 hours. The designers emblazon myriad-colored torso apparel—such as blue-hued T-shirts, orange-hued two-button henleys, or cellophane-hued pullover hoodies—with customer-chosen designs, as well as customizing accessories such as tote bags and mousepads.
For their chosen graphic, clients can opt for stock designs, bring in treasured images saved on a flash drive or emblazoned on a highway billboard, or enlist staffers to transform visionary ideas into custom artwork. To circumnavigate the problem of cracking or peeling appliqués, employees dye images straight into fabric with high-resolution direct-to-garment printing and allow customers unlimited use of colors at no additional charge.

Master photographer Jon Bushard snatches memorable moments from midair and immortalizes visages of all ages. Bushard employs more than 20 years of experience as he guides single subjects or groups of up to five through the ins and outs of achieving a simple, relaxed pose or intricate family cheerleading formation. One clothing change or one background change can be accommodated. After the session, Jon’s camera summons the spirits of departed French impressionists, using technological brush strokes to give a customer’s preferred photo the appearance of having been painted. After meeting once again with the customer, the painterly image is printed onto a 11”x14” canvas and bound to a board, ready to be framed and affixed to the gallery wall or shrunken down into a passable 18th-century fake ID.
