The Best T-shirts of 2016 Are…

Last year we had the opportunity to print some impressive designs for a wide-variety of clients. Some of our clients raced down the Arkansas River while others sold beer to conserve the bald eagle species. Yeah, bald eagles. Take a look below at which shirts deserved to be on our Best Shirts of 2016 list.


CrossFit T-Town

This CrossFit box (fancy word for gym) has been around since 2013, and they kick some serious tail. The gym focuses on discovering each member’s full potential and creating the groundwork for limitless physical and mental performance. Think of Rocky doing pull-ups in the barn and running up the steps in Rocky I.

T-Town ordered a custom seasonal apparel line for the gym. This athletic apparel line consists of stylish pieces that their athletes love wearing, both in and outside the gym. The gym’s favorites were the tri-blend hoodies, joggers and leggings.

Chickasaw Nation

The Chickasaw Nation is extremely active in hosting events and has a culturally vibrant mission for their tribe. They put on athletic events, planned 5k’s, and launched new companies – which all have needed t-shirts in the past year. If they keep growing, we’ll keep printing!

Special services we offered the Chickasaw Nation included discharge printing (which basically means brighter, more vibrant inks), custom tags, order fulfillment, paper tagging and poly bagging garments. Don’t have any idea what any of those services mean? We got you covered.

Child Abuse Network

Every year the Child Abuse Network (CAN) puts on an event called the CAN Superhero Challenge. It’s just as super as it sounds. Each year CAN raises money to support the 2,500 children that are seen at the organization each year. For this event we did a large order of t-shirts and did a custom design for the event. Even Superman loves a good event t-shirt.

Coney I-Lander

There are few establishments who have been in Tulsa as long as Coney I-Lander. This hot dog making, chili pouring, cheese sprinkling restaurant has been around since 1926 – and knows how to do it right.

If you’re looking for tips on how to start a retail program, or you’re a pro and just need some shirts, we’ve got you covered. After creating new designs for Coney, we printed both short and long sleeve shirts. The shirts are available at select stores in Tulsa. Hot dogs sold separately.

Raft Race

In 2017 the Great Raft Race of Tulsa, OK will celebrate it’s third annual race down the Arkansas River. Rafts are homemade, their merchandise was not. We printed shirts, tanks, frisbees and koozies for this wildly successful event.

A lot of hard work and designication (a fusion of design and dedication) went into making this event happen. We mocked up multiple design options and came up with a final product they loved. See some of the merch we printed below.

Wild Brew

There may not be a place on Earth where you can taste hundreds of beers AND support the conservation of bald eagles at the same event. Wild Brew is an internationally recognized nonprofit conservation organization. It re-established the bald eagle as a nesting bird in Oklahoma, and as a result the bird was removed from the endangered and threatened wildlife list in the summer of 2007.

Wild Brew’s event gear is just as fly as it’s initiative. We printed hundreds of quality shirts for this long-standing event. We custom designed their logo and printed on both long and short sleeve shirts.

Victory Church

This church has been around since 1994, but they didn’t start making great t-shirts till they came to us. Just kidding, their shirts were probably ok. On their website it says that “Victory Church has been a place of acceptance, life-change, empowerment, and lots of laughter!” And we agree. They were wonderful to work with, and we got to produce quality garments for their cause. We sorted through multiple garment options to pick the best shirt for their order. Not only did we assist on garment choice, but we also did some design work to print the most quality t-shirt possible.
