Last weekend I stopped by the new retail clothing shop of Glen Infante’s brand ILTHY in Cleveland. He’s done an amazing job with his line, and I tell other brands who want to know how to start a clothing line or make theirs better to look his way. Solid branding all around. I love how Glen takes his childhood influences like Back to the Future and Ninja Turtles and puts his own unique spin on it. Here are some photos I took from the event.
As I’m writing the “Designers Guide to the Apparel Industry” eBook that I plan to release soon, I started to take notice of WHO are the role models that inspired this book. Essentially, who are the designers who started freelancing and eventually started and now run a successful clothing line? As Steve Knerem’s “start a clothing line” series sheds light on HIS experience doing what so many of us designers want to do: Branch out and release something of our own.
Here’s a quick demo of how you can take your artwork and seamlessly integrate it into our new distressed t-shirt templates using Adobe Photoshop.
You can buy the templates for $34.99 at Go Media’s Arsenal:
The distressed look is perfect for those faded, dyed, stained, or ripped up tees like Affliction, Monarchy, Obey, etc. You’re mockups can look like the real deal.
Go Media has partnered with Bare Apparel for these awesome shirt blanks. bareapparel.com/
When you want to go into production and actually MAKE these shirts, you know you can buy the exact tees from Bare Apparel and feel safe that they’ll come out how you mocked it up.
