Set Your Team Up for a Win with Cool Custom Uniforms

When you root, root, root for the home team, does it matter what they look like? ESPN thinks so. Writer Paul Lukas ranked the uniforms of baseball, hockey, football and basketball teams for the sports network’s blog, deciding that hockey team The Montreal Canadiens had the best uniform in all of sports.

In the Alexandria area, our teams didn’t top the style charts. The Orioles missed the top ten by a swing, ranking number 11 in the MLBThe Nationals fared worse, ranking 26 in the baseball charts.

Make Fundraising Fun with a Customization Contest

For their 8th annual ZooWalk for Autism in East Valley Arizona, the fundraisers came up with a great idea to garner support. They held a contest asking participants to design the promotional t-shirt for their October 6 walk.

BLT Shirt Printers thinks this is a great idea for charity groups struggling to come up with fun graphic designs year after year. By holding an open designing contest, you drum up early support for your cause, get a wide range of ideas and cultivate excitement in the community. Also, instead of staring morosely at a blank piece of paper, you’ll get the chance to peruse the diverse work of others.

One of the best parts of the green movement is the commitment to buying local. With their minds on carbon footprints and supporting local business, Alexandria residents have been favoring Farmers’ Markets for their shopping.

At the Ballston BID and FRESHFARM Markets, shoppers can pick up locally grown produce, meats, crafts and more every Thursday. But how do you get it home without using an environmentally unfriendly plastic bag?

What’s Old is New Again with Custom Shirts

Our memories are tied to the clothes we wear. An old concert t-shirt reminds us of a great performance. A college sweatshirt brings back memories of campus parties and big games. As shirts get worn and designs fade, these shirts become a piece of history, showing where we’ve been and how far we’ve come.

Perhaps that’s why vintage-inspired designs have made such a comeback in the modern marketplace. Customers seem to enjoy shirts that look lived in, even when they’re brand new.

How do you combine a lion with a train? It’s a problem Mount Vernon Community School had when they were trying to develop their new mascot. The school is known for the distinctive caboose that sits in front of the building. The train was a graphic wonder, but no one wanted to be on a team called the cabooses.

This year a new principal wanted a fresh start for the school and its mascot. They started with a new slogan: Serious About Success. How do you combine a cool animal, an inspirational slogan and a caboose into a great mascot?

T-Shirts Are Our History, Customize Yours with BLT

In the late 1980s, a six-year-old girl received a t-shirt for her birthday. It proudly proclaimed “Back off man! I’m a Ghostbuster!” She wore it constantly, shouting the slogan as she chased imaginary ghosts around the house. A few years and growth spurts later, the shirt was too small, but still cherished.

There Is No “I” In Team, But There’s An “I” In Customize

The Yankees have one of the most recognizable uniforms in baseball. The pinstripes have become synonymous with baseball records and achievement. The only thing missing from the uniform? The players’ names. If you don’t know a players’ number you’re out of luck watching a game.

To remedy this lack of identity in the ballpark, Yankee players have taken to wearing custom logos when they work out together. Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter worked with New Balance to create logos from their names that they could wear during their clubhouse workouts.

BLT Can Help You Make a Statement

When the city of San Juan Capistrano decided to serve a notice of eviction to a beloved city thunder lizard, the citizens rose up in protest. Zoomars Petting Zoo installed the 40-foot long Apatosaurus replica in early June without a permit. Now the city says it has to come down.

How did Zoomars’ legion of fans decide to protest the expulsion of the dino? With t-shirts of course! Father of five Jason Pearson designed a Save the Apatosaurus shirt and bumper stickers to rally support for Zoomars.
