For much of the ’90s, T-shirt slogans replaced speech as the preferred way to express feelings and announce one's spatial relationship with stupid. Communicate graphically with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of custom-printed apparel and accessories at Big Frog Custom T-Shirts in Winter Park.
Big Frog transfers custom and premade designs onto everything from garments and towels to mousepads and flags. Customers tailor textiles to their liking with a large selection of design ideas to jump-start stalled imagination engines, a graphic designer on staff to offer advice, and a range of clothing styles to choose from. Print a picture of your favorite ex-attorney general onto a white cotton T-shirt ($14.99) or a custom apron ($21.99). The shop also stocks illustratable knickknacks such as mousepads ($10.79), coasters ($6), puzzles ($15), and golf towels ($13.99).
A high-resolution ink-jet garment printer can faithfully transfer any image as it appears on a computer screen, rendering lush jpegs and pithy error messages in as many as 16 million colors. The printer tattoos ink deep into the skin of the shirt, creating crisp tableaus that last through hundreds of washes without devolving into the distressed vintage look common among Victorian time travelers. Big Frog offers a 24-hour turnaround on many orders and can replicate designs on multiple shirts.
Big Frog's pricing varies both online and at its various storefront locations; the above listings reflect the current pricing for the Winter Park location.
