How Robert5 started their t-shirt journey

Brand name



We are a small startup company that is about promoting the great outdoors through hiking.

I guess our personality is sort "old school" sort of a hybrid between the hippie and surf cultures. Definitely laid back and easy going.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

People interested in getting out and exploring nature.


We'd like to print on a "pebble" colored t-shirt (see attachment) and have a 1 color logo on the front right breast that says "" with a couple of palm trees in the background. We're open to suggestions here if you have a better idea.

The back of the shirt is where your design will come in. We're hoping to stick with 4-5 colors and we're looking for something that includes the name of our website "" and some sort of outdoor scene or design, but nothing cartooney. We'd like to think of this along the lines of a "surfer" styled t-shirt... but that may not be exactly right.

Bottom line, we hoping that these shirts will look interesting enough where people will think "hey that's a pretty cool shirt.. i'm gonna go checkout their site". So it's key that the site name be clearly visible.

Our printer has requested the following:

Digital artwork must be submitted in accepted formats only.
All files must be in .EPS format.
All fonts must be converted to outlines.
All colors must be converted to spot colors with correct Pantone numbers.
Please submit files with images SIZED for printing.
Compress large files (over 20 MB) using Stuff-it or Winzip.
Flatten all files.
Send additional .JPG version of file to communicate color representation if file does not display color the way you want it printed

Thanks! Looking forward to your submissions!
