Hey, I'm new to the boards but I've been checking them out for years. I just started my own silkscreening company WeAreTigers (http://www.wearetigers.etsy.com) about six months ago and I've been having a really good time doing it (especially at the first annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair!). Anyway, I thought I'd get around to posting: here's one of my cards and a question. Do you think the pattern would look good blown up about six inches across on a sleeveless shirt? I'm wondering....

Here's a close-up of the print. I really like the screen, but I don't know if it would translate well on clothing. Thoughts?

I'd love to hear some of the terribly crafty people's comments and criticisms.

I think the design would look even better blown up and screened onto a t-shirt!  The details of the print would be clearer.  I think a navy print would be lovely on a white cotton shirt.  Please post pics!

Tada!  My Etsy Shop is now open!

Thanks so much! I certainly hope you're right, because I think I'm going to try it sometime this week. It's make a good yoga shirt on a sleeveless shirt.

I will so definitely post photos!!

I think it would be really cute.

I agree, i think that is a really pretty print that would work well on a shirt.

Thanks! I'm going to burn a screen tomorrow with the six inch design tomorrow-ish. I'll be sure to post a photo of the shirt. Really, thank you guys so much for the compliments. I'm really trying to get better!

I actually dont think it would look quite as good on a shirt.  It would be fine, but I just feel the design is better suited to those cards.  And let's face it, those are some really snazzy cards. <3.

Okay, so I finally got around to making the screen and printing a shirt! I printed on a dark grey Mossimo shirt (XL, it's big enough to wear as a nightgown) and mixed my own navy ink to get the effect I wanted. Here's a couple photos (forgive the crappy compositions, it's too cold outside to take good photos!):

I actually really like it, especially the size. I'm not crazy in love with it, but I suspect I'll make a couple more with the same colorway.

Let me know what you think! And thanks to everyone who was so encouraging!

It looks good. My only problem is that it isn't as bright of a blue as the original color. But, the color you chose goes fairly well with that shirt. I like the design, too.
