My Custom Shirts from ShowMyShirt
First of all, these are my personalized shirts together with the concept mockup done in Photoshop.
I’m not a nerd. Just a geek – 390.00 PHP
Battlefield 3 – 1,500.00 PHP
If you will notice, the details of the Battlefield 3 soldier on the shirt became flat. It is because ShowMyShirt can only print flat colors, no gradient, no 3D-Like or photo realism kind of print. One thing is the positioning of the logos. At first, I didn’t thought of putting Frostbite 2 logo. But on the last minute, I was informed that the Frostbite 2 logo was already printed where the EA logo supposed to appear. The final output was still okay since Electronic Arts is always the highlight of this game, not bad to put it on the center together with the big Battlefield 3 text.
Republic of Gamers – 650.00 PHP
These are the pre-made design couple shirts
His and Hers – 900.00 PHP
Originally, the color of this design is blue. Since the customer is allowed to choose the colors of their choice, I wanted the shirt to have a color of a brazil flag. A combination of yellow and green with a lining of white.
This is how it looks like when you both wearing the shirts.
National Geographic Channel : Live Curious – 920.00 PHP
I love the tagline! One of my favorite shirt actually.

ShowMyShirt doesn’t use silk-screen printing or printing machine for mass production, but they are using heat-press. They cut the design details manually and put onto the shirt by pressing it with the heat-press machine.
As I have mentioned earlier, they are using flat colors for the design. So if you want to create your own custom design shirt, you must send them a vector file in AI / PSD / EPS / TIFF format. Otherwise, you can send a flattened JPEG but it should be high-resolution enough for printing.
The quality of the clothe used for the shirt is quite decent. Almost the same quality of those mediocre brands of apparel in the mall.
As far as I remember, they have 3 kinds of clothe texture:
A. 100% Cotton – thin
B. 70% Cotton / 30% Polyester – thick
C. 70% Cotton / 30% Polyester – thicker
As a personal preference, I still prefer 100% cotton especially when you perspire easily.
I put it inside a laundry net before I throw it into the washing machine. I iron the reverse side of the shirt so the print won’t stick and get screwed up.
MORE POWER TO SHOWMYSHIRT! =)
