WE DONATE time and money to make a difference.
It’s fun to try new color schemes. We think this may be the first time we’ve printed on a shirt this color but that electric sea foam color really glowed on them. Nothing complicated about the design but the ink overlaps and the contrasts in color and value made this shirt a winner in our books.
This sort of job is what we live for. Hardcore bears? What’s not awesome about that? We drew this up in-house and printed it big and bright on shirts and tanks. Keep them coming!
We are not all fun and games around here. Really it’s true! But sometimes we just have to do something interesting for ourselves. Jared decided he has not risked his life enough times yet so he bought a beautiful yellow Norton and we printed some logo tees with the vintage logo design from when they first began their legacy. Not too shabby…
We’ve been pretty crazy busy lately. Lot’s of exciting things in the works. Projects are getting more interesting, weather is getting toasty, and we’re breaking out the tank tops in the shop as we get a good sweat going.
Here are some shirts we did recently that are actually a reprint but with a different color scheme. The colors turned out beautifully as the bright sea foamy green and the deep burnt red created a great contrast on the heather brown. These kinds of colors make us just giddy.
Now that’s a fine looking campaign shirt! It’s great to see a little fun in a political design. Happy friday!
Uh oh, someone likes our (Vardagen) new USS Indianapolis tanks…

We had the awesome opportunity to support a family dear to us by offering these shirts in honor of a sweet little girl who needed a heart transplant. Paying hospital bills can be a very heavy burden so we wanted to help alleviate that weight a little bit by doing what we do best. There was a great response and we are so grateful that so many were willing to get involved.
This heart is for Sonya…
We’re proud of our city and have never tried to hide that fact. It’s great to see so much Indianapolis pride going around and it is fun to provide the printing for many businesses that are trying to proclaim that warm sentiment on the streets with patriotic apparel. This design for White River State Park was simply intended to represent the city in an honest and straight-forward way. The design was inspired, therefore, by its nickname “the circle city” and thats that!
We think they turned out quite well, but don’t take our word for it… Go check them out yourself at WRSP’s welcome center. (There is also a pink one that isn’t pictured here)
It’s always nice when we are given the freedom to play. The less we are given to work with, the more we’ll return. We like shirts that are simple and easy to wear. They don’t need to say much or be overly complicated. Subtle colors and textures feel effortless and complimentary to whatever you’re wearing so we often keep this in mind during the design process.
This simple, calm design for Castleview’s mens retreat turned out beautifully on this coffee-colored, poly-blend t-shirt.
We like when people are willing to get creative on projects that tend to be serious. “Run/Walk for the cure” type events obviously have serious undertones but they shouldn’t be solemn occasions (at least we don’t think so). Thats why when this little team “Gnome More Breast Cancer” came to us asking for help designing a fun shirt for this Race for the Cure they were taking part in, we were excited to jump on board.
We’ve been improving the use of color overlaps with water-based inks on our own projects at Vardagen, but haven’t applied this on client projects very frequently. However, we felt like this was the perfect occasion to implement it, as it gives more color at less cost which is pretty ideal when you’re getting shirts for a cause. So, as you can see, the blue and pink colors made that nice, soft purple for the shadows and gave the print a lot more depth than would have been there otherwise. I expect we’ll start getting bolder and more creative with these color interactions with time. So stay tuned!
