Top 3 Shops to Buy Shirt Online

 

Whether it’s a Darth Vader shirt or your favorite Adventure Time character, there will always be a personalized tshirt for that. Nowadays, Shopify and other ecommerce platforms had made it so easy for both consumers and sellers to connect resulting into thousands of products and orders.

 

And one such niche that continues to make a killing in terms of sales is personalized tshirt. Just try Googling for this term and you’re bound to see thousands of websites each with literally hundreds of design to choose from.

 

Today we’ll take a closer look at 3 popular shops where you can cop your next personalized tshirt.

 

Johnny Cupcakes

 

Before JC became a behemoth of a clothing store, it started as a brick and mortar business from the founder, Johnny Earle’s, car. He literally sold his Johnny Cupcakes t-shirts at the back of his outside of friend’s gigs. This was in 2001. Several years later, he would open a string of retail shops across the world and ultimately reach global success after launching his clothing store online.

 

JC is most popular for its cupcake and bones design, which captured that perfect balance of cute, funny, and angst-y philosophy of its fans.

 

Threadless

 

This online T-shirt company is credited to be one of the pioneers of crowdsourcing. Back in 2000, the founders started polling forum members to rate various designs where the winning entry would end up in various merchandise like tshirts and other products which will be sold and shipped all over the world. The artist with the winning entry will get paid with royalties from sales of his or her design along with a couple of bonuses from the company. This made the concept very popular among designers and kept Threadless from getting amazing designs from artists all over the world.

 

Nowadays, Threadless proves to be one of the biggest online and brick & mortar stores that sells a wide range of products with eye-catching designs.

 

COOTD

 

COOTD is a budding online T-shirt company based in the Philippines that sells a cute collection of designs covering popular characters and other categories like Food, Drinks, Animals, and more. The designs feature a simple yet engaging appeal that’s a sure hit across customers from all sorts of ages.

 

What do you get from shopping in COOTD? Aside from their niche collection of catchy designs, they offer shipping all over the world. And perhaps the most amazing part is the price---COOTD shirts are priced so competitively you can grab a couple of shirts for the price of one from the first two stores we mentioned above. Does this make COOTD a better store? Probably not, but it definitely is a hit among shoppers looking to find the best bang for their buck.

Here Are Some Ideas On How to Recycle Your Used Shirts

 

I hate waste. Not the waste that you see in the garbage bag, but the act of throwing something away that is still perfectly usable. If I have something that rarely gets used but still in OK condition, I give it away or sell it online. I remember giving my personalized T-shirt of our high school band to one of the kids in our neighborhood. But what if giving or selling are not an option? How can one still repurpose something headed to the trash bin?

 

Easy, recycle! And in the case of used shirts, here are the top 10 ideas on how you can recycle them.Most of these will work best with a bit of sewing action.

 

Rags & Potholders - Clothes with heavy fabric are perfect for these. You can cut out the fabric and re-sew the pieces or simply cut a few portions a bit then use as is.

 

Pillow case - Cut off the arms including the ridge in the middle Sew them shut and voila, you have your very own, homemade pillow case.

 

Doggie Mat - If you have a dog, turning your once-favorite personalized T-shirt into a doggie mat is a great idea. Similar to making the pillow case, cut out the arms and sew all holes. Best if you can slip in a thin foam before sewing it all up for some added softness.

 

Tote Bag - Yup, you’re old Nike T-shirt can still “do it”. Tote bags are rather easy to make, make a cut-out as a guide, sew and make fringes at the bottom (for best effect).

 

Headbands - Didn’t thought of that one, did you? Simply cut off the sleeves (option 1) or cut the whole shirt into small strips of cloth then sew them together to make a headband.

 

Wall Art - I saw this one once in a friends room. She took her old T-shirt then stretched it out to staple into a wooden frame. She painted on the thing directly (she’s an art major) with an image of an oak tree. Cool.

 

Book Cover - Aside from covering them in plastic, there’s a cooler way to protect your beloved books. Cloth covers! The great thing is that the process is very much like how you would do it with a plastic cover, so only minimal sewing is required.

 

Placemats - Pretty straightforward to do. Better if the old T-shirt is made up of a thick fiber like Polyester or Rayon for better durability and water absorption.

 

Scarf - If your scissor game is strong, you don’t even have to do any sewing to turn an old (preferably printed) shirt into a scarf. The more elaborate prints, the better.

 

Pet Toys - Sew up a bunch of fabric from your old T-shirt into a quick doggy bone or fluffy ball for your cat.
