Yay! I finally made another t-shirt. So happy. Actually made two so I’m on a roll. Here is my first one. What do you think?
and then I did another one
I have some more latte/coffee sayings I could do.
They come in 5 colors and mens and womens although I doubt guys would wear it. I do wish Merch Amazon had v- or scoop necklines for women. Oh cool thing is Merch Amazon is spreading into UK and Germany so in a few months my designs will be over there too.
On this design, I used a picture of a real latte with a heart I took in a California cafe. The only thing is that it has bubbles. Do you think I should flatten it and make it into a graphic design latte heart so that the image is more flat — no bubbles. The bubbles are a result of the frothing of the milk for a latte. Coffee is smoother because the milk isn’t frothed. I could smooth out the bubbles to make the surface look flatter but that makes it less of a latte. What do you think? Realism or a more flatter more illustrative type look?
I probably will go 2-d graphic design type latte with Zazzle because I think they will print better there if I only do one color. Merch Amazon does a pretty good job on photos. Zazzle’s photos’ colors look more faded which doesn’t matter so much with the latte. I like Merch Amazon’s printing better but Zazzle has a much better selection of styles with all kinds of shirts for women like razor back, tank tops, crops and lots more.
