Snake Bitten (Logo Design) – A fitting logo for my fantasy football team!

 

Graphic Explosions Snake Bitten Logo

What does a graphic designer do to ease his weekly fantasy football torment? Rename his team and design a logo that is fitting and emblematic of his teams performance, of course. It is both therapeutic and a chance to have some fun. I’m sure that whatever god you believe in knows that my fantasy football results, this year, have been many things… but not fun.

I entered this season as the Bay State Cereal Killers (right) and have morphed into the Snake Bitten. It remains to be seen just what team I end up being a few weeks down the road. You may just end up seeing another blog post with a redesigned logo and a new outlook on my fantasy football season. I doubt it. But it is something for me to look forward to.

Well, enlightened readers, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Until next time, as the Tick says, “Spooooooooooon!”

Christine Lewis has been embracing her love of art practically her whole life! She grew up surrounded by a family of artists who all enjoy the creative process and the joy that art brings to people. She took her first lessons in watercolor from her cousin, Anna Soik. Anna was a well-known artist who taught art in New York and became one of Christine’s greatest inspirations.

As a child, Christine and her mother spent countless hours painting on the front porch of Anna’s beach house every summer with her mother. Christine still has her first signed painting hanging on the wall of her home from when she was just 10 years old!

Christine enjoys painting, drawing, sculpting and found-art creations. She wants to share her love of art with you, and hopes that when you walk into a room and see one of her masterpieces, it will bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart!

DtG Printing on Dark Garments

DtG Direct to Garment Printing

Finally, a great source for full color direct-to-garment (DtG) printing on Dark Garments! First, direct-to-garment printing uses an inkjet-like printer to print directly onto the garment. This allows full color printing at a fraction of the cost of traditional screen printing, especially at smaller quantities. It is highly recommended that the garment be 100% cotton.

Typically, DtG printing is printed on white or very light shirts. The reason for that is that CMYK full color printing needs to be printed on white to maintain its color integrity and brightness. DtG printers use a white under-base ink to solve the problem. There are some businesses that advertise DtG printing on dark garments. But I’ve found that, for the most part, their claims haven’t matched the quality of their output. They tend to have dull, murky colors.

Well, check out the photo at the top of the page! Bright whites and colors on a black garment. We had a customer who needed a small quantity of full color shirts for a family vacation… and he wanted them on black tee shirts. Viola! Graphic Explosions was able to solve his problems.

Need full color shirts for a party, event or function? Contact us at 603.912.5466 or KenM@GraphicX.com. Yes, we provide DtG on white shirts too!
