All this was happening while I was designing the stickers. (That's another long story). And when the wolf sticker came together, I was all <hearts for eyes emoji> but my initial reaction was, awwwwww... too cheesy and literal for the Rockhound theme. (Rock-HOUND, get it?!) But it wouldn't go away. I showed it to a few theme teamers and they were all <hearts for eyes emoji> too. I took that as a sign, and I said to myself, "What if we make a premium tee—three colors on the best garment we can afford?"
Let me tell you about these garments. First off they're the lightest garments we've ever done, 4.2 ounces. Now it's not so light as to be sheer, so we're safe there. (And we've chosen darker colors too, because the design works better on darks, and well, safety). The fabric is even softer than the Retro Tees. It has something to do with the cotton being combed, (which I can sort of wrap my brain around), and "ringspun", (my brain can't really seem to imagine what that might mean). All I really know is that combed, ringspun cotton is really soft.
The fit is a fashion fit, so it's just a little more snug, and definitely on-trend. And it has features—things like side-seaming, set-in neck, and retail sleeves that don't wing. These garments are crafted.
And did I mention that these are heathered? I know, right?! It seems like heathered colors are everywhere! This is that extra bit that really puts these tees over the top. These garments are precisely 52% cotton and 48% polyester. The heather texture visually softens the tones and sets the design off so nicely! And the heather feel is oh so soft and smooth!
And I figured, hey, if there are three colors of ink, why not offer three colors of garments?! Seriously, doesn't that design just fit these garments?
I know these are a little more expensive. But these are the best tees we've ever offered. They make perfect staff shirts, and maybe you could honor the team leaders by giving them one of these instead of the others. Or maybe you want to pick a couple up for the leadership team on your base to get them excited about your ministry. You won't regret giving these tee shirts to your people.
