New “Shelf Elf” by Vardagen

by Andy on December 16, 2015



Know anyone that could use some supervision? It’s your favorite Christmas Creep, the winter whistleblower, here to watch your every move, to jot down your every slip-up… Merry Christmas?

20% OFF at Vardagen with code: ELF20 (ends Dec 16th)

Andy: This one has been in the queue for a few days but I didn’t know it was time sensitive, sorry guys! Also, where’s a guy got to go to get a pair of those slippers?

I have released many new designs on tees, sweaters, baseball tees, and more! These are just a few highlights. I have chosen my PALE, booty worship, and MAKE AMERICA PUNK AGAIN designs for this post. Be sure to check out www.dylanmurphycreations.com to see them all!

Andy: Why does booty worship make me laugh so much? Maybe it’s the notion of someone like me that is fairly normal walking around in a shirt with “booty worship” emblazoned on it. As ever, design is all about context. I like the Pale design too, surprising that no one has done that before (that I know of), might be quite fun to see that design as a faded grey print on a heather grey tri-blend.

Fashion and tech now illuminated
NEO LUX is launching their next generation of the worlds most advanced EL wire light up jackets now with optional built in “E” cigarette.

11/26/2015 Dayton, Ohio
Neo Lux CEO, Sheldon Williamson, is launching his next line of Electroluminescent Wire (EL Wire) jackets with not only further advanced tech and unmatched designs but with an optional hidden E cig for the incognito Vap user . The product line will be available worldwide on thanks giving day (11-26-15). The Ohio based company has not only redefined quality and design in the EL Wire industry but they are still unchallenged for the rights of the worlds most advanced EL wire jacket. With features like practically infallible electronics and multiple light styles with curves, swirls, and even sharp edges they are truly ahead of the curve.

It is also a Product actually “Designed” and “built” right here in Ohio unlike other brands, NEO LUX is helping to reinvigorate manufacturing in the USA. With locally trained contractors working from the comfort of their own home Sheldon is improving the lives of everyday people. His uniquely designed light up hoodies promise to bring safety and style to all of your favorite night time/ early morning activities.

Five years in and the company is still strong and growing. With dreams of advancing their tech to the level seen in Disney’s hit movie “Tron Legacy” CEO Sheldon Williamson says “ its not if but when” and says It may even come soon. Rolling out their new line with an industry leading three month warranty on all NEO LUX constructed electronics you can rest assured you’re in for a completely different light up jacket buying experience. What’s even more impressive is the company is not just out there to make a buck but also to create social change.

With the launch of their program “Equality Matters” right alongside the new jacket line they intend to pursue real problems facing our communities. With the launch of the program they will be setting aside $5 from every jacket purchase to tackle local issues of inequality, issues like racism and sexism. The first target in their sights is racism. The funds will go to programs to educate local suburban communities.“We start by creating change in our own back yard then spread it into the world. “ Sheldon Williamson

Andy: I don’t smoke in any way so this isn’t for me, but I do have to admire that innovation and I’ve always thought EL wire on clothing was kinda neat.

Free T-Shirt Mockups Tool

by Andy on December 11, 2015



Placeit Apparel is a service that allows you to create photorealistic apparel mockups to display your designs within context. You will be able to choose from a wide variety of tshirt mockups, tank top mockups and more to showcase your latest clothing line to your clients.

Using apparel mockups from Placeit is super easy since you don’t even need to use Photoshop or any other editing software, all you need to do is add your image to the mockup and Placeit will make it fit on the fabric perfectly, considering all the creases and foldings. You can actually select the color of the garment as well, so forget about plain while tshirts with a flat image over it, with these apparel mockups your design will really adapt to the fabric for a photorealistic look.

There are tons of different settings, characters, and environments for you to select the right mockup that enhances your clothing line the best, but feel free to email us at hi@placeit.net if you don’t find the stage that you’ve been looking for.


Andy: Considering that I have spent the past decade telling people that good product images sell more t-shirts, it’s great to find a company that are making that easier for the people that can’t do that with the real t-shirt. Obviously a service like this will never be perfect, but it certainly does look good.
