Liquid Screen Design Hands On Review

by AndyRocksBluu on April 22, 2013

Hey everyone, today I will be doing a hands on review with Liquid Screen Designs and their upcoming Kick Starer project. Usually when I do my reviews I like to break them down into different categories but that approach wouldn’t  be fair.  Instead, I will explain what LSD is doing and give my 2 cents on the project and what I thought overall.

The Idea:

Liquid Screen Design has figured out a way to make t-shirts change color when ever they come in contact with different temperatures.  Here’s an example:


Here is a blue Liquid Screen Design T-shirt


Here’s me putting a hot iron on a Liquid Screen Design t-shirt


And Ta-da! The t-shirt is now white in the area I applied the hot iron. Pretty amazing right!


And here’s a better view.

My Two Cents:

I personally think this is a pretty cool idea. I think this will be a home run if they were able to figure out a cost effective way to make these shirts and sell them as blanks. I know I would pick up a few to print my Bluu Dreams designs for the summer time. Who knows, this idea can just be a stepping stone into other clothing materials but as it stands now its a pretty cool idea.

Overall: 4.0-5.0

The shirt that I received from LSD was a anvil 100% cotton t-shirt. For those who don’t know Anvil makes pretty decent blanks but not as soft American Apparel (but we have been told the process will work on an AA tee too). As far as the idea I think its great and I’m curious to see how far the good people at Liquid Screen Designs are able to take this idea. I think there could be a really big market in selling the shirts to wholesaler companies. If you like what you see and you want to support Liquid Screen Design Kick Starter program just go here and back this project.  I know I will!

    This was an entire clothing brand in the 80’s. Watch what happens when you wash the shirt and it turns into a multicolored, faded mess. It was a huge fad that faded fast because your armpits would constantly be another color. They even made pants and your crotch would do the same thing.

    I remember wanting a Hypercolor shirt so bad when I was a kid, hopefully they’ve been able to improve the print technology by then. I am right with you on the armpit issue, I wonder if it’s possible to not put the heat-reactive treatment on that area?

  • Bryan Goltzman

    I am the owner of Liquid Screed Design and the reason we came up with these shirts is because we loved the ones in the 80’s, but as you pointed out there were some major problems (fading after being washed, an overall faded look and quality of the shirt and “white armpit”). Rest assured that when we started making these shirts we addressed these concerns. Our technology does not fade away after a few washes, it remains just as vibrant. We addressed the “white armpit” and the color vibrancy problems by adjusting the amount of heat it takes to change color. You can still change the color with your hand, but it takes a bit longer then the ones in the 80’s. When I wear my shirt around I always wear an undershirt (I do that with every T I own) and I never have a problem.
