The heavy snowfall recently seems to have had its effect on many of us, with lots of commuters unable to travel, disturbances to public transport, and not forgetting trying your absolute hardest not to fall over from the icy roads. Still, the build-up of white fluffy snow on the trees and rooftops sure does make Cardiff look pretty!
Almost coincidentally (and definitely appropriately) to the weather, we’ve recently been working on some garments for Eskimo Joes, “the ‘coolest’ play centre around”. The company, located in Rhondda Cynon Taff, placed an online order with us last week for some custom embroidered polo shirts featuring their very own logo, along with some children’s t-shirts printed with their very cute penguin:
We were pleased to hear from Eskimo Joes again today:

Having personalised clothing is great not only for adding your business logo or name to, but also contact information like social media. Whilst all t-shirts look more or less the same to the naked eye, there are plenty of different weights and materials available. At My Garment Factory Cardiff, we've got all sorts of t-shirts, with some that are designed specifically for sports made using lightweight, breathable materials to help keep you comfortable whilst exercising.
If you would like to discuss your sportswear requirements with us, just get in touch.

Now a timeless piece of clothing for anyone’s wardrobe, the printed t-shirt has come a long way since the beginning. Derived from the shape of the garment’s outline, the word t-shirt didn’t even make it into the dictionary until the 1920s. Originally worn only as an undergarment, the t-shirts we know and love today evolved from its use in the 19th century by miners and stevedores, who found it as a convenient covering for hot environments.
Fact: In 1939, the motion picture debut of The Wizard of Oz saw the first ever promotional printed t-shirt.
Although we all frequently wear t-shirts as the only piece of clothing on our upper bodies today, this only became popular 30-years on from its entrance into the dictionary, when famous American actor Marlon Brando was seen wearing a custom made t-shirt as a standalone, outerwear garment in the 1951 film, A Streetcar Named Desire. Along with some other appearances in t-shirts from influential people like James Dean and even Elvis Presley, wearing a t-shirt on its own suddenly became cool and rebellious.
Fact: Over 2 billion t-shirts are sold every year around the world.
Around the same time of the t-shirt becoming a symbol of rebel youth, some companies based in Miami, Florida began to decorate their t-shirts with characters and resort names. The very first is a company called Tropix Togs, who had the original licence for printing Walt Disney characters. In particular, the Mickey Mouse t-shirt was popularised quickly, with thanks to its appearance in the 1983 film, ‘The Outsiders’. This helped even more to bring the printed t-shirt into mainstream culture.
With so many designs available for printing onto a t-shirt, let your creativity flow and bring your ideas to life with My Garment Factory. Look out for part 2 of our blog, as we continue to explore how the printed t-shirt became so popular.
