New Design: I call this one Frogbike. Its a frog riding a bicycle. What more can I say? It was created in memory of Matt who loved frogs and loved riding his bike.
I have produced a dark green version for use on light coloured backgrounds and a pale green version for use on dark backgrounds. As always, they can be ordered on any of the available colours.

Hello Side Car Bob! Just ordered one of the cx engine long sleeve t-shirts in dark green. Can't wait to get it. Figured I better just get the engine because one never knows what will be in the garage next! Amen to your thoughts on facebook!! Paul

NEW DESIGN ANNOUNCEMENT

I mentioned a while ago that I was thinking of adding a SilverWing emblem to my shop and Doug said I should so I scanned a SilverWing emblem and a GoldWing emblem (makes sense to do both at the same time) and started working on the artwork. I have produced 3 versions of the SilverWing (plain, GL500, GL650) and 4 of the GoldWing (plain, GL1000, GL1100, GL1200)

They are in the shop now https://shop.spreadshirt.com/sidecarbob/ just in time for you to
SAVE 15% on all orders from Feb 20th-24th (no coupon code needed)

As always, these are low resolution sample images (the originals need to be reduced to fit on shirts) and the background colour is only for display purposes. They are available on a wide variety of products (hats are finally available) and you can chose from a variety of garment colours.

Email from Spreadshirt this morning:

Due to an executive order to cease all non-essential business in the state of Pennsylvania and Nevada, both our production facilities have been temporarily closed. Businesses who ignore this will be faced with civil penalties and revocation of business licenses.

Unfortunately this means, that we currently cannot process any orders of your customers for your .com, .ca and .co.au Shops.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but the safety and health of our employees and their communities is our top priority during this challenging time. We’re confident that we can get through this together and appreciate your patience.

Hi Bob ,
Can you put pictures of our bikes on a mug?

It can be done but not until the production facilities re-open.

If I was going to add a picture of a bike to my shop I would require a clear picture with the actual image of the bike at least 2000 pixels wide and a very neutral background which I could crop away without too many hours of work. To put things in perspective, when I did the CX engine picture I hung a white sheet behind the engine and lit it from both sides and the pics still had too much shadow so I had to pile boxes & blocks of foam around the engine with the sheet covering them and take more pics. After that it only took a couple of hours to remove the background and clean up the edges of the image and another 2 or 3 to touch up the pic, draw a black line around it and generally make it good enough for reproduction 10" or more wide on the front of a shirt.

If all you want is to have a favourite pic of your own bike taken in a location that means something to you printed on a single mug for your own use it would be easier for both of us if you were to open a Spreadshirt account, upload the pic, create a product for it on the mug style of your choice (they have about half a dozen), order one and after it has been produced delete the image.

There are many sites that will do a custom mug pretty cheap w just a photo if that is what is desired. We have a few that were gifts and look very nice. Are they top quality pro photos no. But it is just a mug after all. I do like your shirts and understand the effort, but if I drop a mug and it breaks? Oh well S--t happens

Yeah, I don't personally make a lot on the stuff in my shop. I do it mostly to share with friends. I'm happy if I sell enough of a design to pay for one for myself.

My favorite coffee mug has a picture of two of my grandchildren. Items of sentimental value are my favorite belongings!

New update: Spreadshirt is open for business but some products (including posters, some cups & mugs, hats & bags) are temporarily unavailable and there will be no promotional offers for the duration.

We’ve now reopened both of our factories in the United States (hooray)! After legal clarification by the Nevada and Pennsylvania governments, we are now able to operate our facilities by enacting strict health and safety guidelines.

By keeping our production employees at a distance of 6 feet, sanitizing surfaces at the beginning and end of shifts, and promoting hand washing, we are able to both keep our employees safe and resume producing orders for your customers. Here is the full list of safety guidelines from the CDC that we will follow.

As you know, the situation surrounding COVID-19 is very dynamic and can change quickly. Please note, that while we were able to reopen our factories there are still a few things that will stay the same. For example, we will temporarily not be running any promotions on Spreadshirt.com. Additionally, you can expect delivery times to be longer than normal.

We are taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our production employees and their communities and are happy to see products run through our facilities again and land safely at your customers’ doorsteps. We’ll certainly keep you up to date on anything that affects you and your customers.

For our EU platform: As of today, in the EU our factories are operating normally.

I wouldn't spend that much time preparing an image that would only be printed a couple of inches high on a mug one time but if I put it in my shop it would need to look good on a t-shirt up to 10" x 12".

I revised the product selection in the shop this morning, made sure the designs were all in the right place and the right size and added a couple of new products, including the new cloth face masks
201286

And true to the way things are going these days most of the other new products (computer backpack, duffel bag, hats &c) are currently out of stocl. Oh well, maybe they will be in stock by the next sale in a couple of weeks...

Ordered a Unisex Jersey T-Shirt by Bella + Canvas shirt with the logo printed on it. Feels nice, fits excellent. I've washed/dried it three times and the logo is peeling off and cracked around the edges. I assume it's because of the blend in the shirt. Just an FYI, I'll be ordering a regular t next time.

I haven't had any problems but mine are all t-shirts and pins.
Contact Spreadshirt directly (contact link below) about your problem and I'm sure they will make it right
