With cool, original T-shirts never going out of style, but always going up in price, why not start designing your own? Blue Sky T-shirts specializes in custom work — both printing and embroidery — and can help you create your own individual pieces. Whether you’re an artist with a drawing you’d like to see on the back of a hoodie, a family that wants to put a portrait photo on shopping bags or a football team that needs a series of named and numbered jerseys, Blue Sky can help you be the designer. No job is too big or too small — the sky’s the limit!
Exciting Range of Styles and Colours
From plain white tees to micro-fibre golf shits, Blue Sky offers a wide variety of canvas on which to display your art. Flip through the catalogues and choose from hundreds of different styles and colours by brand names like American Apparel and Nike. Hats, bags, aprons, pants and jackets can also be ordered. And if you want something special like a pink polka-dot tank-top, Blue Sky can have fabrics knitted to customer specifications. The advanced printing technology used by the shop allows for a wide spectrum of colours, and a rainbow of threads are available for embroidery. Additionally, Blue Sky can do raised-letter gel prints and glitter designs, as well as add studs and sequins to jazz up pieces.
Award-Winning T-shirt Talent
Blue Sky owner John Foy has been in the T-shirt design business since 1977, and opened his Drive storefront in 2005. In his successful career as a T-shirt artist, Foy has worked for the likes of Umbro, Disney, Ecko Red and Quicksilver, and has won numerous industry awards for excellence in printing. Today, he focuses his talent on designing cool shirts that he sells in his sleek shop that doubles as a T-shirt gallery. There’s a variety of impressive Foy designs on display against the simple blue and chrome backdrop of the shop, including wildlife images and a complete line of Commercial Drive and East Vancouver-themed gear.
