I feel safe posting this because not only does my brother not read my blog, but he doesn’t have the internet. Can you imagine that? I mean, even your grandma has the internet.
Anyway, Merrick has a landscaping business in Chilliwack. Today at work I designed a simple logo and embroidered it onto a hat, as pictured below.
Pretty simple, but a lot of fun to do. My job is fun when I get to be creative. It’s not fun when I have to vacuum the floor or steam shirts. The other day Kenn asked me to make up a logo for the contracter who came to fix the mailbox slot. As a thank you gift we made him a shirt with his logo on it. I made eight different logos and boy is this ever boring for you to read about.
But hold on! Here’s a test run for an embroidered SPACECORP patch.
I think it’s keen. We actually have a ginormous tome of clipart so that I could put a rocketship on there just like the actual logo from the uh…TV series. But I just whipped this up on the stitching program and ran it out on the embroidery machine just to familiarize myself with the process so I can do it for others.
And here’s an example of the shirt I made using the DIGITAL GARMENT PRINTER – it’s cheaper than silkscreening especially if you have your image ready to go but it works best on white or very light coloured shirts. This is my rocktopus on a green t-shirt that is too dark to show the subtle colour variations on the octopus. And of course the yellow on the lightning bolts don’t stand out.
Uh, so yeah – if you need to get anything screenprinted, embroidered or a DGP’d, just let me know. We’re at the corner of Oak and 15th. I get to walk home for lunch. You can bring in your own garments or we can supply them for you. Discounts will be involved.
