Sometimes we get questions from customers on just how we make and produce our cryptocurrency shirts and apparel. We decided to write up a quick post on just how we do it, from design all the way to shipping direct to you. Let's get into it!
Step 1: Coming up with a kickass crypto design
As you can imagine, the first step to making our clothing is coming up with an original design. Our focus is on cryptocurrency, as it's our passion and love as it has been for a decade now. So we tend to make designs focused on the industry and popular coins and projects, and even current trends and memes. We have to have some fun somehow! This means we have a lot of Bitcoin shirts, Ethereum shirts, Dogecoin shirts, Bitcoin Cash shirts, and other cryptocurrency shirts. The main idea is we try to have fun and provide creative designs and not your just run of the mill boring "Bitcoin logo" shirt. We also have more than just shirts, hence the name Crypto Shirts+ (plus). We make original designs for shirts, hoodies, hats, coffee mugs, stickers, and so on. If you want to learn more about Crypto Shirts+, you can read our about us or read our FAQs for additional information.
Step 2: Preparing shirts for printing
During this step of the process, we choose the best quality shirt that we can get that are also at a reasonable price, giving us the opportunity to provide our customers with high quality shirts for competitive pricing. Once we have the shirts in stock, we have to then prepare them for printing. To do this we clean the shirts and then use pre-treatments to treat the shirts before printing so the designs can hold onto the shirt and bond with the fabrics. After pre-treating the fabric, we dry the shirts with a heat press so that we have a clean nice smooth printing surface.
Step 3: Printing crypto designs on the shirts
This part is exciting as we get to put together our hard work and produce a high quality shirt to show it off on. After step two above, we now take the shirts to the printing machines where we print directly onto the garment. After just a short time, we then take the shirt and hit it with the heat press one more time to make sure it's fully dry and done. The printing machines are top of the line equipment, using software and technology to print high quality and color-rich designs quickly for a fast processing time. The entire process is also eco-friendly, as we use eco-friendly inks and it's mostly automated and paperless. We use the newest inks and pre-sprays so there is no odor. The difference is in the details. Every garment goes through quality control checking for best print and color results. Checkpoints throughout the process ensure your garments are printed, packed and shipped correctly. Ongoing software and system advances help us to stay ahead of the curve.
Step 4: Packaging and shipping
After we make and produce the shirt, we package it up and ship it directly to you anywhere in the world. All garments are professionally folded and carefully inserted into self-sealing poly mailers with UV protective coating inside. Large orders are packaged in a box. Most of our production happens in the United States, so depending where you live it can take just a few days to get to you. If the item is shipping internationally, it will take a bit more time to get to you.
