Another thing unique to Teeporium is this blog. Think of me as your personal shopper. I will tell you about the deals. I will feature shirts for you and ways to wear them. I will get you interviews with the artists. I will fetch you a glass of ice water with lemon. What’s that? I don’t need to provide you with any refreshments? Well, that’s mighty kind of you. But rest assured, you can count on that other stuff.
But where to start browsing? You could go by topic (from Abstract to Zombies and everything in between) or view our Canadian graphic artists to see more of a style you love. Here are all the designs for those who like to be thorough—a commendable trait. Or…do you just want me to a pick a shirt for you? Can do. You can check out the Featured Shirts section of each blog for suggestions. Look, here it is right now. What a smooth segue.
Pictured below are Dory Rikkonen’s Canada banner graphic on white and Roberto Gonzalez’s Canada Stamp white on a red shirt.
Canada Day is coming up, which means a high probability of fireworks and an even higher probability of rain. But don’t worry, these shirts look just as good wet. Here’s an idea of how you can dress for the festivities: it requires that you have at least two friends (or people who can stand to be in your presence) who are not averse to wearing T-shirts. I know those are some pretty stringent requirements, but, in the words of fashion guru Tim Gunn, "Make it work."
The second requirement for this idea is that all participants must walk in formation AT ALL TIMES. Or just when posing for pictures. But I would really appreciate your dedication to the concept. Have two red shirts (not à la Star Trek) flanking a maple-leafed white shirt in the middle. And now you are part of a walking, talking, Canadian flag. It’s a metaphor! Or something. Another perk of your eye-catching group is that you can you can refer to yourselves as installation art.

Happy summer, everyone!
Until next time, keep a warm heart and a cool head.
On our virtual racks you’ll find over 500 graphic designs offered across shirts a spectrum of 21 colours from sizes Youth XS to Adult 4XL. That’s over 100,000 different combinations, which is why Teeporium exists in the magical sphere of the Internet and not at a booth in the mall.

If you’re a true fan of original custom made t-shirts, then this is the place! Teeporium has been doing this for quite some time and bring a lot of designers in to make new product constantly.
Take a look at their ‘Abe’ t-shirt! It’s very well made and has great definition and composition. You can represent your patriotism with this shirt in style!

These reminders always seem to pop up when the summer is at its zenith, pun totally intended.
In stores all around, there's nothing sadder than seeing a cardboard cutout of a yellow sun wearing sunglasses (what's up with that?) being taken down, slightly bent, and put in the back to make way for the big red apple on display with shiny white teeth (also, what is up with that?). But you’ll find no such thing at Teeporium.
Whether you're going back to school or not, those ads signify something universal — the end of summer. Winter is coming. That's it. It was fun while it lasted. I already feel chilly when I go outside now (maybe I'm just paranoid).
We have to take advantage of T-shirt season while we still have the chance. Let your arms be free because we won't have this opportunity again for 75% of the year. But you can always bring back the trend of double layering a T-shirt over a long sleeve. Bring back that 90s cool! Apparently fashion goes in cycles anyway so I'm sure we're due for it soon (also go-go boots).
Or maybe you’re one of those people who are just waiting for the sun to burn out (still a few billion years to go there, buddy, be patient) so that you won’t have to suffer through a farmer’s tan. But look on the bright side — from far away, it looks like you’re wearing a shirt! For a more urban take on this type of tan line, use a V-neck as your template. Or, if you want to avoid it altogether, here are some tips:
1. Never go outside. I am well-versed in this method and can tell you that it does the trick. A word of caution, sunlight will still do its best to stream in through windows. As a preventative measure, consider relocating to the basement or an underground bunker. Unless you can't get Wi-Fi reception there, which is a deal breaker.
2. Specifically always getting burns on the back of your neck? Wear a baseball cap backwards. Not only guaranteed cool, but the brim may do some shielding, as this is supposedly its purpose. Alternatively, this can be remedied in the form of turtleneck T-shirts. Somehow, the idea hasn't really taken off yet, but I know it's just a matter of time. You heard it here first!
3. I dunno, sunscreen? Just as a last resort. It probably won’t be like, really effective or anything.
Featured this month are some shirts that will remind you that although summer may be fleeting, it will always live on in our hearts (I’m not crying, it’s just raining on my face).
Warm up and cool down with Hot in Here? and Chill To Perfection by Mr. Slogan , Sky's Illusion by Taylor, Sun Shine by Valeriu J, and finish it off with Summer's End by Fren Mah.
Until next time, reduce, reuse, and recycle (especially your junk mail).
I saw it today. I was going through my junk mail — not so much "going through" as shuffling together to throw into the recycling — when I saw an ad saying, in giant letters, "BACK TO SCHOOL!" What? What?These reminders always seem to pop up when the summer is at its zenith, pun totally intended.In stores all around, there's nothing sadder than seeing a cardboard cutout of a yellow sun wearing sunglasses (what's up with that?) being taken down, slightly bent, and put in the back to make way for the big red apple on display with shiny white...
Personally, I have yet to see evidence of changing colours and falling leaves but it's bound to be soon. In fact, some places have decided to forgo autumn altogether and have had their first snowfall. My condolences.
In any case, it’s never the wrong time to inject a little colour into your wardrobe – like with Teeporium’s 21 different base shirt colours, perhaps. There’s red, orange, and yellow for the seasonal picks, but it doesn’t end there. There’s also your choice between gold and Vegas gold (all golds are equal, but some golds are more equal than others). That’s 3 different sunny shades, the same as the number of classifications for ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun! Coincidence? Well, probably.
Now, if you think Teeporium plays favourites to one side of the spectrum, please. Blues, greens, and greys also come in a triplet of shades. That should cover all the colours in the Rainbow Burst design by Orange Eden Designs and then some.
When discussing fall, I thought, "Gee, it would be nice if Teeporium featured a relevant design for me to showcase. Maybe something with a leaf? Hmm...but wherever shall I find it?"
Fortunately all I had to do was look under topics. First Seasonals (though my curiosity led me to a bit of a detour through Social Commentary) followed by Harvest/Fall. And there was the Valor Leaf design. Handy, huh?
Alternatively, sometimes I do not want to traverse topics. I have a specific keyword in mind and I can’t decide which topic to look under – bacon? Robots? Both?? In this case, may I direct your attention to that little space up there by the magnifying glass, the universal symbol for detectives, inquisitiveness, and online search tools.
Oh, would you look at that, typing into the search bar begets related designs with the name and graphic subsequently displayed. That’s how I found Fallen by Paul Coombs, for example (that design works on so many levels).
Clearly the primary use for this feature is for me to have easy access to designs to blog about. Unless you want to usurp my position I can't image what anyone else would have to do with it...maybe use it to perform simple and efficient keyword searches to find designs of their preference, who knows.
And sometimes you don’t even know you’re looking for something until you come across it. That’s how I fortuitously found Kiss, also by Orange Eden Designs, through the “Customers Who Viewed This Product Also Viewed” section of the previous shirt. That means you other customers already did my work for me by viewing similar products. Well thank you kindly, it’s greatly appreciated.
Of course, the ultimate test of a search tool is whether it can accomplish finding a mythical creature like the unicorn. After an air-tight investigation I can conclude yes, yes you can find a unicorn in the search bar. And you don’t even have to hit enter. Actually, I was halfway through typing “unic-” when both Unicycle by Evan Gowan and Unicorn by Vicky popped up.
So that’s one (supposedly) mythical creature down, what to look for next? Maybe a dragon…
Until next time, keep questing.
It’s that poetic time of year when the days become brisk, leaves start changing colour, and coffee shops start offering everything with pumpkin spice (delicious in a muffin, not so much in an Italian soda).Personally, I have yet to see evidence of changing colours and falling leaves but it's bound to be soon.

Calling All Artists
Do you have a creative soul? Have you tried sculpting, beat poetry, and interpretive dance but found that none fill that void deep within? I know what might help. A way to influence people's lives, make a difference in the world, and encourage people to stay clothed. It’s all through the power of T-shirt design.
So how to become an artist? It starts with providing a short biography and links to your other works. After registering, your submitted designs will be featured on your own artist profile page, under the name of your choosing. All that’s left is to fill in the captcha to make sure you are not some T-shirt designing automaton. Although that would be pretty sweet. Any T-shirt designing robots can feel free to contact me personally. It's cool, I know binary.
Need some inspiration? Check out all the different topics you can add to here. Or maybe you have designs for a topic that’s not yet listed. Then not only would you be responsible for the creation of T-shirts with graphics of that nature, but also for the need to add a new site button. Remind me to add that to the to-do list.
Now you may ask, “How can I best prepare for designing T-shirt graphics for Teeporium.com? And what is the meaning of life? Can we know others if we do not know ourselves?” Well, dear reader, I have advice for the grandest of your existential questions: put yourself in someone else’s shoes (or in this case, shirt). Want to know what kind eye-catching graphic would suit a shirt? Browse through the pages of other designs that are available and see the variety you can add to. Next, consider that your graphic need not just go on a plain white T (side note: what ever happened to that band?). Users can choose from an array of colours as the background to their design, as well as size dimensions. As much as you design the graphic, they design the shirt. With this in mind, try creating a few shirts yourself using the different features. Once you’ve made your option selections, click “Add to Cart” and then view your cart to see the shirt priced, planned, and ready. Now you know the exact process shoppers will go through when selecting your designs. But to get a complete understanding, I would really recommend that you fill in your shipping and payment information and complete the order. Then wait for your free shipping to arrive and get to see those shirts in the flesh (er, fabric). Repeat until you’re comfortable with the process. Now you’re ready to sell shirts of your own! Buying custom shirts and selling your own designs – that’s Teeporium for you.
Your art may even crop up in the Featured section some time!
This month shows designs for graphic artists by graphic artists.
Until next time, stay artsy.
