Why I Love Glitter

You can never go wrong with glitter! Glitter is something we specialize in and are passionate about! Here are some fun facts about our glitter:

  • It adds just enough little “umph” to a shirt to stand out and make it a unique shirt
  • It doesn’t come off in the wash!
  • We have a lot of glitter colors to choose from so you can go with “more subtle glitter” or “all out sparkle”
  • We can put almost everything in glitter
  • Silver is our sparkliest glitter color
  • White is our most subtle glitter color
  • Add a name and number to the back of a shirt to get the most surface area of glitter!

Our First Anniversary in the Store Front

Cheers to another year!

We celebrated our first anniversary of being in the store front on September 23, 2017! While our “official” one year was on 9/17, we wanted to throw a party to celebrate a job well done for the past year. We had champagne and cake and the best part…a clothing drive for Safe Nest! Safe Nest is a local charity here in Las Vegas that helps prevent and protect victims of domestic abuse. Our community has done so much in helping us get settled in the store, we wanted to give back. We were able to donate so many items thanks to our awesome friends and customers!

While part of the fun was planning it, the actual party was a blast! We felt great being able to give back, we saw friends who stopped by for cake, hosted a raffle for custom items, and really get to spend time to know some of our customers.

We are so excited to start on another year at Sparkly Tees and make some awesome shirts! We’ve already kicked this year off right by making tons of glitter shirts! Always check out our Facebook to see what new things we’ve been up to.

A big thanks to everyone who was able to donate to Safe Nest! We could not have done this without you!

Work Shirt Ideas

When you think of getting work shirts made for your company, remember that they can be fun! We just made some really neat work jackets for the Pediatric ER at Summerlin Hospital.

We made these jackets colorful and fun while still professional. They still include the Pediatric ER logo (the panda on the front). These are zip up black running jackets with gray zippers and pockets. The jackets are a great alternative for t-shirts. Your employees would certainly stand out in one of these jackets with your business logo on the back.

We also did some shirts for Cadwallader Middle School. These are work shirts for the ladies who run the front office of the school. We made them sparkly and in the school’s colors. We put them on some J America lace tees. I mentioned in my last post that these lace tees are comfortable and super cute! They come with interchangeable laces that you can get in a variety of different colors. On this shirt we put two laces in.

Check out our store for more ideas for work shirts. We can put any logo on a shirt so you aren’t limited. Also remember that you don’t have to get regular cotton t-shirts. We have the track jackets, the lace tees, soft V-necks, and polo shirts. We also do embroidery if you want your business logo embroidered on a polo shirt. Email us at sales@sparklytees.com and we can help you come up with shirts that you and all your employees will love!

Beginning of January Wrap Up

We had a pretty busy holiday but we were able to get some awesome shirts done!

 

We did some Leavitt Middle School cheer shirts and of course we had to make them sparkly!

If you’re looking for something fun for your school sports group, check out the designs we have in our store. You want your team to stand out with their sparkly sports shirts. We also love to make sports Mom shirts! If you’re a cheer mom, let us know, we can help design the perfect shirt for you to wear. Just contact us at sales@sparklytees.com.

 

This week we also worked on a Glitter is my favorite color shirt. We love glitter! You can show off your sparkly sense of style with one of these shirts!

Check out this Bombers softball shirt we did as well! We love using lace shirts since they are so comfortable! If you’re looking for a neat shirt that no one else has, I suggest going with the J America lace tees or hoodies. They have interchangeable laces as well so you can choose from a variety of different colors. I have a lace hoodie that I love to wear everyday.

Billboard Tees-The New Trend

You’ve seen it–the girls walking around in yoga pants and this oversized jersey shirt with a name stretched out on the back. And of course you want one! I want one, they’re really cute. And being a college student, I see them a lot. The good news is, Sparkly Tees is here to help! We can put whatever you want on the back of the billboard tee. We like to put school names on the back of the shirts because we work so closely with the Clark County School District (CCSD).

 

Here we have a Shadow Ridge High School billboard tee with “Shadow Ridge Mustangs” written in silver glitter vinyl.

This one is a Centennial High School billboard tee. Bulldogs are their mascot. We also included a breast cancer awareness ribbon because we made these pink billboard tees in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Here we have a close up of the Arbor View High School logo featured on the front of the Billboard Tee.

And here are the backs of the Arbor View High School shirt and Desert Oasis High School shirt!

Now you don’t have to go with solid pink. We just made a lot of solid pink billboard tees in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. When I was going through inventory, I came across some red sheer billboard tees with a hood. Now those shirts were really cool. And we can put anything on the back. Not part of a school? We could put your company name on the back. Or just your name!

 

You can check out the billboard tees we have in our store and you can email us at sales@sparklytees.com so we can get your order rolling! Don’t worry if your school isn’t on our store. We do custom orders!

 

 

 

Embroidered Stuffed Animals

One of my favorite things we do at Sparkly Tees is embroider stuffed animals! The ones that we have are so cute, everyone will want one! Embroidered stuffed animals are a great keepsake!

We have a couple different stuffed animals to choose from and here is a sample of what they look like before they are embroidered:

And after we personalize the stuffed animals, this is what they look like:

12348026_10153892385368706_3565029154647991430_n

 

There are a lot of fun things we can put on the stuffed animals. We made these ones for a friend of ours with three kids. On the bear we embroidered the child’s “stats” (i.e., birthdate, weight, and height). On the ladybug and the dog we embroidered their names.  Of course these don’t always have to be for little kids. These would make great graduation presents, wedding gifts, birthday presents, and special gifts to commemorate occasions.

You can check out our store and see the different stuffed animals we can embroider on. Email us at sales@sparklytees.com so we can set up your order. And if you’re not sure what to embroider on the stuffed animal…ask us! We have tons of ideas you may not have thought of. If you have an idea we can help narrow it down and get you exactly what you want!

Here’s another picture of our Arbor View High School wrestling design we made this week. Notice how we have a glitter design and a vinyl design. We don’t always have to do glitter vinyl!

Let’s talk about shirt for a minute. Even though we have a lot of pictures of designs on 100% cotton Gildan or Port&Co shirts, there are tons of different shirts to choose from. I just went through all our inventory and unearthed some pretty nice shirts. We have eco-friendly shirts, V-necks, scoop necks, pink and blue shirts, and even some polo shirts! Don’t just stick to crew necks and heavy cotton!

Check out our store! We have a lot of great designs in glitter vinyl or rhinestones. These make some fantastic gifts and of course you can always shop for yourself!

Wrap Up Week December 14th-18th

We had a pretty busy week! Let’s wrap up!

 

We made a shirt for a family friend for Christmas. We put this Captain America shield on a white and heather charcoal V-neck shirt. The Captain America shield is made from rhinestones. Look how they sparkle!

12392038_10153922328013706_1039050135118448065_n

 

We also made some really great Arbor View High School wrestling team shirts! These are made from red and silver glitter vinyl. We put them on a lace tee. The laces are interchangeable and you can pick from different colors of laces. The shirts have long sleeves and hoods.

Not only did we put this wrestling design on a shirt but we also put it on a tote bag! Tote bags are a great variation to shirts!
