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 $19, you get $40 worth of custom printed apparel and accessories at Big Frog Custom T-Shirts.
Big Frog transfers custom and premade designs onto everything from garments and towels to mouse pads and flags. Customers tailor textiles to their liking with a large selection of design ideas to jumpstart 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 ($15.99) or colored jersey polo ($20.99), or label identical twins with two colored onesies for infants ($16.99 each). The shop also stocks illustratable knickknacks such as mouse pads ($10.79), coasters ($23.99 for four), 110-piece puzzles ($15.39), and car flags ($16.49).
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 that 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.
