I usually don't start thinking about Christmas in October, but this year my show schedule will be very busy in the months of November and December and I am forced to think ahead. I know. I know. Christmas comes around every year, so why not be prepared, right? I guess I think I'll get the best deal at the last minute. And it drives me nuts if I think I didn't get the absolute best deal on something. So this year I resolve to just get it done, and get it done early.
And I have a secret weapon.
My sweet, creative, always stylish sister-in-law Michelle has a custom printing business in St. Charles, Missouri.
etsy shop called Epoc Ink. She can custom design for you, or use your designs and logo to personalize items like market bags for your business or cause, pillow cases for your graduate, socks, aprons, tee shirts, onesies, tea towels...It's a wonderful direct to garment printing process that prints the ink into the fabric, rather than screens it on. And...big bonus...she can do full color!
Here is a sampling of the lovely, high quality flour sack tea towels she can customize with any name, address, design, business logo, event, whatever you can dream up! Wouldn't this one be nice for your neighbor, with a pretty tea cup and, dare I say it? Lavender tea?!
Customized socks for all your nieces and nephews? Or perhaps birthday party favors? Or sports teams? She can do it.
Need to personalize tee shirts for a reunion, anniversary, or special occasion? How about a onesie for a new baby gift?
Porch Pillows! How cute is that for the person who has everything?!
As you know, I'm a sucker for quotes, and I just love these custom pillow cases.
So now I've given you the heads up. Just put your thinking cap on and create, then convo Michelle at her etsy site and, voila! I'm sure everyone will be impressed with your creativity and forethought this Christmas!
Hugs! : )
