"I've got a shirt do I get it made?"

I get asked this all the time. If you have an idea and you want to get it to a shirt, I may be able to help. As long as the design doesn't violate certain rules that I operate by:
  • No "Phish". Your idea can not contain the band name, or any variation of the logo of the band.
  • No likenesses of the band members. I won't even do silhouettes.
  • No cover songs. If your idea is a song shirt, it must be a Phish original.
  • No designs in poor taste. (If your idea references Trey's recovery, for example)
I charge $25 an hour to design, and I can usually do most designs in an hour. This includes tweaking the design to your specifications or consultation about the design. If it's more complex and it goes longer than one hour, I will explain that beforehand. I also will request one (1) shirt if it's a design I really like. I will be brutally honest whether I think your idea will or won't work, and whether it has a good chance of selling. I will discuss this with you before I accept any payment. I will expect payment after the work is completed. When completed I will supply you with the jpegs, pngs, and pdfs of the designs and it is then yours to keep, in case you want to do it again down the road. Donating a shirt to PhanArt for sale to benefit MockingBird Foundation is also recommended. PhanArt will list your items for free.

Need help finding a printer? I can help with that too, as I have worked with a couple of people. Depending on the scope of your project I can connect you with the right people.
