Who Are These Kids and Why Are They Calling Me Mom?

Who Are These Kids?

Ever go camping with the neighbors?  You’re not alone.  Last week we got a call from a lady that wanted some t-shirts for camping.  Well, we print a number of t-shirts for summer camps, but what was this camping thing?  Turns out a bunch of neighbors go camping together, and the moms kind of become the moms to all the kids.  Hilary would be proud.  I guess the running joke among the moms was “Who are all these kids and why are they calling me mom?”  They wanted a design that would fit in with the kids and the moms.  Judging by the finished artwork, the moms kick back a little too.  Bet it’s a fun neighborhood!

What’s Your Big Idea?

Photography today is amazing. When I got married a thousand years ago, one of our first major purchases at the time was a Canon AE1 35mm camera. Film of course. Over the years, that camera recorded numerous milestones, triumphs, and simple family pleasures.

Now, years later, photography has advanced well in to the digital age and buying a good quality camera no longer requires the expense it once did. Not to mention, you don’t have to pay for developing film. Which means guys like me can carry a camera all the time and record whatever strikes us at the moment with no thought of cost.

I’m always on the lookout for design ideas, potential customers, interesting logos, or things that make me laugh. The other day I was heading over to Subway to grab a sandwich and as I headed towards the office door I passed my digital SLR camera sitting on the counter. Should I take it? Geez, the local Subway was just 2 minutes away. Why bother? Ah, what the heck. I grabbed the strap of the camera and headed out.

As I pulled in to the parking lot at the sandwich shop, I saw a pretty well worn van parked out front. I smiled when I saw this bumper sticker.

I thought, now that would make a great t-shirt! What about you? Have you got an idea for a t-shirt. If you’re in Grand Rapids, you should stop by the shop. If not, feel free to call or email Ad-America. It just might be less than you think to put a smile on someone else!
