You’re a unique human being with specific tastes and interests. You maintain your aesthetic in all aspects of your life, and your clothing is no exception. Have you ever thought about having custom apparel created to really show off your personality and style?

At Goodbye Blue Monday in Boulder, we specialize in custom apparel, promotional products, screen printing, embroidery, and more. Continue reading our blog for more information about how we can help you create custom apparel to let the world know who you are.

Choose The Perfect T-Shirt

First things first, you need to pick a T-shirt that you love the cut and material of. An awesome design is useless if the T-shirt fits weirdly or isn’t a comfortable material.

Learn more about choosing the perfect T-shirt for you so you know it’s going to look good even before you jump into the design and customization process.

Get Inspired By Your Favorites

You probably have a few fashion designers and clothing brands that you already love, so take a closer look at what you love about their designs before you jump into creating your own. 

You can take the elements that you love about your current clothing and apply the style to your own illustrations, type designs, and doodles for truly custom apparel.

Pick A Symbol

Prince turned himself into a symbol, so why can’t you? You don’t have to start going by “The Human Formerly Known As [X]” in order to design your own symbol for a T-shirt, though. 

We recommend researching different symbols from various cultures to get some ideas. You might find one that you love and just need to stylize or you can put your own twist on popular symbols by combining them into something that’s meaningful to you.

What’s Your Motto?

Do you have a favorite movie quote or pun that you just can’t find the perfect T-shirt design for? If that’s the case, why not just make that T-shirt yourself? 

Choose a type style that you love and start customizing it to fit the context of your quote. Do you love the phrase “namaste in bed” but haven’t found a T-shirt that also incorporates a sleeping Buddha? Make the shirt yourself with the help of Goodbye Blue Monday!

Time To Distress

Another way to add personality to your clothing is to distress it. This is something you can do yourself, too! There are plenty of online tutorials on how to fray clothing, how to sun-bleach your T-shirt, and how to cut intricate designs into fabric.

You could always purchase your clothing already distressed, but where’s the customization in that? Talk to us about your vision, and we will work with you to make your custom apparel a reality.


At Goodbye Blue Monday, we understand how important it is to stand out as an individual. Show off your unique personality and sense of style with custom apparel from us. Contact us today to get a quote, and we will get started creating a fresh design.
