So you want to get a Detectorist you know something cool for Christmas, their Birthday or just because that year 2000 $1 coin turned out to be a mule.
My mate turned a certain age that he would be horrified about if I made public. He is 67 Years old and his name is John and he lives in Yeppoon and his facebook page is…….. Well that’s enough.
Anyway I wanted to get the bloke, a massive detector fan and a weapon with the 705, something cool to mark this sad, I mean happy occasion.
So Like any Aussie bloke I started to look for products that would insult him in some way. So that every time he looked at it or used it he would be reminded of me and hopefully, feel a bit inferior.
But alas, the old bloke jokes are pretty…. well… Old. The t-shirts, mugs, caps etc I had seen a hundred times before.
I was at a loss, it was looking like I would actually have to buy him something useful like a new diamond digger or a finds bag, he really needs a finds bag.
So Just before I wasted my money on a finds bag,
I found this website just by accident.
It allowed me to make and print a T-shirt just for him.
Here is the design I used, I didn’t use their designer I just whipped it up in Gimp, Its a graphics software, not a guy chained in my garage that has graphic design ability. I had One printed and had it sent for less than $30.
I was able to present this shirt to him, at the functioned arranged for his Birthday, in front of about 30 people or so.
We laughed at him, he got embarrassed, we laughed some more and everybody talked about the shirt.
Now the design is nothing Flash, I was not going for fashion but to make a point and have a bit of a laugh.
The best thing is that a few days after getting the shirt we went for hunt in the local park, He was wearing the Shirt! Guess what? Not one person asked him a stupid question, NOT ONE kid ran in front of him or annoyed him about what that sound means. Everyone just left him alone to do what he loves doing……
DIGGING UP PULLTABS!!! BAHAHAHAHHAHAH
I have loaded a couple of designs into the website but you can design anything you like.
- Coffee Mugs
- Long sleeve shirts
- Polo Shirts
- Tea Towels
- Hats and more
ALL Can be imprinted with just about any image you have.
Its Just a bit of Fun and I tried something similar in the past but as it was USA Based the freight and costs where just stupid.
This is all In Australian Dollars and the products are printed and shipped locally so postage and actual cost is not that bad. Especially when you compare it to places like Vistaprint and others.
You can design a custom tshirt and have 1 printed for Under $20!
