Now He’s Just Showing Off!

http://www.downtownprintwear.com/services.htmlWe came across a project that had Ben’s name written all over it!  He must have been bored while Cassius was away on vacation because that’s usually when these projects tend to show up.  In case you’re curious, that’s a carbon fiber, pebble puff, flock applique, multimedia design on a Dri-Duck work jacket.  We can guarantee you won’t see this item anywhere else because it’s a DCP original!

Because all screen-printing and embroidery is handled in-house, we have the capability to create unique finishes you can’t get from “the local printer” or the shop with a single-press.  Talk to us about applique, foil, puff, and other unique finishes that will make your project a guaranteed home run!



Guess the Stitch Count – Capital District Scottish Games

Guess the Stitch Count is a game we created that gives you some insight into our world of decorating products and gives you an opportunity to win free apparel!  The rules are simple: We post an embroidered image of a recent project for the Capital District Scottish Games and you guess how many stitches are in the image.  We will provide you some details to provide context and the size of the artwork.  Multiple guesses are allowed, but only the most recent guess will count towards the competition.  We’ll even give away freebies for the more people who participate!  Only guesses posted through the link below will count towards the competition.  Play along and you’ll figure it out very quickly.

As an added incentive, for every 5 unique people that participate we will draw names out of a hat.  For example, 5 names = 1 winner, 10 names = 2 winners, 15 names = 3 winners, and so on.  The more people who play, the more chances you have to win!

20 in 20: #1 Doggy Tees


#1: Doggy Tees

Our final gift suggestion for our “20 in 20” countdown was chosen by Cassius.  He told us that he wanted some input on the series, so we let him make the final suggestion.

Everyone deserves a gift during the holidays, even the little critters!

Doggy Tees

If you follow us on a regular basis then know that Cassius loves to keep you up to date on the latest doggy fashion trends.  Don’t forget to take care of the little guys and gals that greet you at the door each time you return home.  We spoke to Cassius for his advice on gifts:

“Dogs are easy to keep happy.  Milk bones, sweaters, and chew toys will keep us happy.  Just show us you care and we’ll still love you.  That’s all we ask.  The only gift that is off limits – cats.  Don’t bring home a cat or we won’t be friends anymore!”

Follow Cassius for inside info on what goes on at the shop, along with more gift ideas for your canine friends.  If you can’t reach him directly, you can contact us at the shop and we’ll take a message for him.  Today he’ll be busy taking orders that are needed before the Christmas holiday, but we’ll make sure he returns all messages tomorrow!
