No matter how feverishly you bedazzle your frocks with rhinestones and elbow macaroni, it’s difficult to establish individuality in a mass-produced world. Today’s deal puts your individuality on your sleeve: for $15, you get $30 worth of custom-designed wears from Skreened, with standard shipping included. Upload your freshest doodles or jauntiest catch phrases and achieve the sartorial stardom you’ve long deserved.
If you’ve got something to broadcast to everyone who passes you on the street, a T-shirt is a much more comfortable medium than a splintery sandwich board or hoarse scream. Skreened puts the power in your fabrics by allowing you to create your own clothing through simple, online uploading and custom styling (shirts start at $17). Skreened’s print technology produces durable displays of art and wit on environmentally friendly American Apparel and Anvil clothing much softer than any shirts you would normally run through your laser printer. If you don’t feel inspired to design but would like to accent your wardrobe with the designs of others, there’s a wide variety of featured works available, including a delightful elephant atop an aeroplane, the t-shirt version of Indiana state pride, or our 16th president’s countenance powering a different aircraft ($21.99–$30.99 each).
Dress your kid brother, mum, pappy, baby, or baby’s agent in sustainable clothing with an artistic edge, or capture your milkman’s signature salute on a 100%-wearable cotton canvas. Standard shipping is included, and you can even sell your design to the unsuspecting torsos of shirt customers across the nation. It’s always a good time to update your résumé with new exaggerations, including your experience as a successful fashion designer.

Columbus Underground called the Columbus, Ohio-based Skreened the Best New Store of 2008, and Columbus Alive! listed it as a runner up for Best New Store in 2009. Skreened has also been featured in Wired, the Other Paper, and elsewhere. Three Yelpers give Skreened four stars:
- This shop is reminiscent of the 80's flea market screen shops. I remember picking out a print with a puppy that said myrtle beach and bragging to all my friends that I 'made' it. At skreened you really can. – Doreen w., Yelp
