What should my next range be? Well I have all those flags I'm really proud of. Although they were designed to go on little round things like badges, there was no reason why they couldn't be scaled up for a bigger product. All it needed was to resize the files and knock out the background colours.
So now all my existing range of countries - UK, USA, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan and South Africa - can be worn proudly on your chest on a wide selection of colours and styles for men, women and children.
A snapshot of just 6 of my new tees.
Almost all of them are available in the same colour combinations as the badges - one neutral background and one for each of the flag colours. Due to the range of shirts offered by Zazzle, unfortunately at the moment I'm not able to offer Ireland on an orange shirt. This still leaves a choice of 30 unique designs, something for almost every day of the month!
There's also the flexibility to customise the designs with text if you want. Plus, apart from the black and white tees, there's also the option to choose another shirt colour. So don't feel bound by what I've laid out, get creative and make yourself something that's totally one of a kind.
Grunge outline added to the stars to make the American flag work on a white tee.
The badge of my Japanese flag on a black background unwittingly became a best seller following the tragic earthquakes and tsunami in March. Now it's also available as a tee shirt.
To see the full range visit http://www.zazzle.com/valwoodhouse and search for tee shirts. Don't forget all these flags are also available on badges, magnets and key chains. More countries are in the pipeline, I'm looking forward to showing them to you!
I'm now working on giving my Café Press shops an overhaul. The company has added lots of new products recently so this is going to take some time! Watch out for my pick of the coolest must-haves over the next couple of weeks.
Also I'll be taking you on a trip through the archives as I'm sorting out some of my old work to scan in for my portfolio. It'll be interesting to see how much of it has passed the test of time!
