High Resolution Apparel Mockups

Are you an aspiring T-Shirt designer? If so, then you might want to check out Bradley Oesch’s Apparel Mockups. These high resolution Photoshop ready apparel mockups will make selling your designs a bit more professional and hopefully will attract more buyers! All of the mockups are 1000 pixels in height and have the appropriate masks in place (fancy Photoshop lingo talk), which means that all you need to do is drop in your design and boom you should be ready to go. The best part? The sets are priced at only $4.99 a piece.

Lance Armstrong Is 38 And A Big Fucking Deal

At least that’s what Outside magazine thinks. What does Lance Armstrong think? Well, if the Twitter post seen below is any indication, the 38 year old and 7-time Tour de France winner is not very happy with Outside magazines proclamation. Apparently, Outside magazine photoshopped the statement on to Armstrong’s previously blank blue T-Shirt.

Interestingly, Outside does note, on the cover even, that the shirt is not actually Armstrong’s real T-Shirt. See the tiny text next to Armstrong’s right elbow. Lame Bullshit? What do you guys think? Should Outside have at least let Armstrong know they were going to add that seemingly very powerful statement to his blank T-Shirt?

Coty’s Thoughts:

Filter Heroes by Chop Shop. Pros: Absolutely love the design, perfect for the techy crowd or for photoshop gurus. Shirts come packaged in a protective plastic bag to protect the shirts from the elements during shipment. Features a custom screenprinted inner neck label and is tagless for itch free comfort. Printed on a charcoal Alstyle blank. Cons: Nothing really, I just wish you didn’t have to pay a premium for the American Apparel option. Other than that, excellent product! Price: $20 but you can save $15% if you use the coupon code “givemeabreak” at checkout.

Filter Heroes

Soju-rific by Funky Koreatown. Pros: Fun shirt, especially for those who have an interest in Korean culture or just like to drink soju! A bit character heavy but I’ll be sure to wear it the next time I go soju drinking. Flat rate shipping in the US and internationally. Printed on an American Apparel blank. Cons: Blacks not as vibrant as I have seen on other DTG printed shirts. A bit pricey. Price: $21.99.

Here’s a geeky tee that any Photoshop guru could appreciate. It’s called Invisible and perfectly so, since it’ll seem as if you’re slowing erasing yourself whenever you use this tee. 

You can pick up this tee from RedBubble for $24.00 in multiple styles and colors.
