Greetings one and all, and welcome back to the best darn funny t-shirt website and blog on the internet! As a small business, we pride ourselves on being involved and giving back to the community. Our community is Rochester, a small city in Western New York. Although the city and surrounding areas are made up of only about 1 million people, these people have so much pride for our city and LOVE to give back. This fact has never been more apparent to us than it was last Saturday, September 9th when we put on our first ever sale at Crazy Dog HQ.
We make thousands of t-shirts, so of course, we need a warehouse to store all of our hilarious designs. But recently, our warehouse has been bursting at the seams with inventory and our staff was starting to drown in a sea of shirts (albeit figuratively). Instead of letting hundreds of t-shirts sit in boxes and gather dust, we wanted to see them go to good use – and the idea for our first Swimmin’ In T-Shirts Sale was born.
The idea: Put 20 kiddie pools in our parking lot, fill them with the overstock inventory, then invite the community to come purchase a tote bag for $10 and stuff it with as many shirts as possible. BONUS: Give half of the proceeds to a local charity.
We figured this idea was a little wacky, so we created a Facebook event, told our friends and family about it and thought maybe a few dozen people would come. Boy, were we wrong! Not only did HUNDREDS of people show up, they started lining up an hour before the sale even started! We got rid of almost ALL of the overstock inventory, had people shopping until the very last minute, and we even ran out of tote bags and had to improvise. On top of all of that, we raised THOUSANDS of dollars for a great cause, the Willow Domestic Violence Center of Greater Rochester.
We are so overwhelmed by the success of this event and the generosity of the people who came. We just wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that came and helped us raise money for such an important cause. It is people like you that make us proud to be a small business, locally owned and operated right here in Rochester, NY. So again, THANK YOU!
If you were at the sale and saw something you loved or are just browsing our website because you love funny t-shirts, don’t forget to take advantage of our awesome deals – Buy One Get One 50% Off and Buy 2 Get 2 FREE. Have a great week!!
The Crazy Team at Crazy Dog T-Shirts
Posted: September 07, 2017|Categories: Behind The Screens
Greetings one and all, and welcome back to the best darn funny t-shirt website and blog on the internet! Here at Crazy Dog T-Shirts, we're constantly rolling out new hilarious t-shirts for our wonderful customers (pssst, that's you), to enjoy. We come up with new designs and create these t-shirts so fast that it can sometimes seem like magic. Well, it is a little like magic, but the process is technically called Silk Screen Printing (or just Screen Printing for short). Today, we're going to give you a quick run-through of the screen printing process. This way, whether you purchase an original design from our website or are creating your own custom t-shirt, you'll have an idea what the little Crazy Dog elves are doing behind the scenes to make you the best quality shirt money can buy!
Whether it's our design or yours, it all starts with art. We take the artwork and prepare it on the computer to ensure the highest quality design. Once the art is approved and complete, the film gets printed.
Original Art and Film
Ok, we have the film printed. Now what?
NEXT: CREATE THE SCREEN
The printed film is laid flat on a screen, which has light sensitive emulsion allowing your art to be exposed onto it. Once the art is on the screen it is put into an exposure unit.
Placing the Film on the Screen
Finished Screen on Exposure Unit
Once the screen comes off the exposure unit, we rinse the emulsion to reveal the image. We then let it dry and it is ready to go to the printer!
Rinsing the Emulsion
THE HOME STRETCH: PRINT IT
The screen is mounted onto a t-shirt and your image is printed with ink and downward pressure from the squeegee. It is then placed into a dryer to set the design and VOILA! Your brand new t-shirt is printed and ready to be packed into our beautiful Crazy Dog bags and delivered to your front door!
Place the Screen on the Printer
Squeegee the Screen
Blank Shirt on the Printer
Print on Shirt
Freshly Printed Shirts on the Dryer
Freshly dried shirts
Your Brand New Screen Printed T-Shirt!
So there's your sneak peek into the crazy world of screen printing! Of course, the process gets a little more complicated depending on the complexity of the design, the colors, the quantity of shirts, etc, but those are the basics! Now every time you put on your favorite Crazy Dog Tee, or when you design your own custom shirt, you'll be able to perfectly envision what goes into creating that one piece of sartorial perfection.
Are you as obsessed with screen printing as we are now? Wikipedia has even more information. You're welcome.

Greetings one and all, and welcome back to the best darn funny t-shirt website and blog on the internet! Today we're here to show off five of our newest cool tees! We here at Crazy Dog typically add several new items a week, and love to take a little bit of time during that week to show them off to you. We've been on an adding spree the last few days, and would be remiss if we didn't take some time to show them off to you. If you love super soft ringspun cotton that feels like your favorite vintage style apparel, you're going to love the fit of the items down below. Ready to dive in?
The first one we've got for you today is actually a CrazyDog classic. Remember our Find X Math t-shirt? Not only is it great for people who don't very much feel like helping out their math problems, but it also was recently featured in a rather large summer super hero blockbuster. We can't tell you which one, but it did involve a lot of swinging, webs, and quips. You can take it from there. Men's, women's, and kids styles are available now!
You know what our idea of a balanced diet is? A Taco in Each Hand. That's the kind of dietary and spiritual balance that not even Julia Child and Buddah could have come up with. The dark heather gray cotton is incredibly comfy, and will look amazing with almost any kind of outfit you can cobble together. Pretty sweet, don't you think? (Or is it spicy?)
The third nifty little top that we've got for you today is only available in our women's slim fit sizes. Take a look at our cute new Top Knot Yoga Pants Coffee Wine design. This simple but elegant text graphic is perfect for ladies who are always on the go, yet still manage to look amazing in the process. Sizes small through 2XL available today.
Speaking of coffee, do you happen to know someone who just cannot seem to function without a cup of coffee in the morning? Yeah, we do to. Nowadays it seems as though those individuals may be onto something. According a report published on CNN, two studies have shown that consuming more coffee can lead to a longer life. What perfect timing that we rolled out our brand new Without Coffee tee! if you are incapable of smiling in the morning without a cup of joe in your hand, you're going to want to slip this fashionable tee on!
The fifth and final item we have for you today comes not only in our adult men's and women's slim tees, but a beautiful ladies racerback tank top as well! If you are That Crazy Little Sun of a Beach who just cannot seem to resist sunshine, sand, and waves, you're going to want to spring for this one. Grab one for yourself or someone special before you head on out to soak up some rays with a margarita in your hands.
Thanks for checking us out once again! We hope you remember to take advantage of one of our two automatic discount codes while you're here. You simply won't be able to match the quality of material and design we offer for the price anywhere on the web. Happy Tuesday!

Ready? Here we go!
Our first selection is one of our favorite entries into the dad and baby matching items. Our Little Dude's Dad t-shirt goes smashingly with our Dad's Little Dude baby creeper.

For those of you looking at our one-piece baby bodysuits, you'll have four sizes to choose between.
Don't worry moms, we didn't forget about you! Up next is a pair of cute tees for moms and their kids. The first one is our I Love Wine women's slim fit shirt and the equally funny I Love to Whine youth tees. The youth design comes in both four youth style tees and four baby creepers. As we like to say here at Crazy Dog HQ, children whining leads to mother's wine-ing. (Get it?)
The third collection we have for you includes something for the entire family. Feast your eyes on the boss series of funny t-shirts! For the dads, there's our geeky new Boss T-shirt. Moms, on the other hand, will have the choice to dazzle in either our Wife Mom Boss tee or our Boss Lady tee, while young children can make people laugh while wearing our Real Boss Youth design. And if you happen to have a baby crawling around the house, we suggest you take a look at our adorable new Mini Boss Baby Creeper. Bonus points to the family that can get all four of these into one family portrait!

Greetings and a happy Monday to all of you out there and welcome back to the best darn funny t-shirt website and blog on the internet! Today we're here for all of you people who love animal, the outdoors, and spending time outdoors in all of mother nature's splendor. A number of us here at CrazyDog T-shirts are huge animal lovers. Whether we're talking about rescue dogs or animals on the verge of extinction, we've got people here behind the scenes with a passion for it. Today we're here to show you the best of our newest and classic graphic tees.
Are you a lover of deep sea marine life? Who isn't, right? Whether you're talking about a gigantic blue whale or a teeny tiny little baby bottlenose dolphin, it's amazing to watch these cute, intelligent creatures swim around and talk to each other in ways that we haven't even begun to fully understand. The first one we have for you today is our funny new Save the Sea Panda's tee shirt, which not only features a completely original design, but comes on the softest ringspun cotton out there!
What do you say when you try and tell people how awesome marine mammals are and they just don't care? Oh Whale! (Get it?) Our clever new Oh Whale t-shirt is ideal for men, women, and kids who love both whales and puns. This cute shirt comes in 17 different sizes from a youth small and women's slim large all the way up to an adult men's 5XL.
Up next is something specifically for the pet owner community. While people may disappoint us from time to time, one thing that never seems to let us down is the wonderful world of rescue animals. A great many of us here at Crazy Dog are rescue animal owners, which is why we create cool t-shirts like this one. Our Relationship Goals Cat tee comes in both our adult guys and girls styles on our ultra soft heather gray cotton apparel. Pretty cool, huh? Doesn't it just make you want to go home and cuddle your little four legged friends? Meow!
With the relentless pounding of winter finally over and the nice weather finally showing itself, people all across the country and heading out to the camp grounds. Whether you prefer pitching a tent or hanging out in a cabin, we've got a ton of funny camping graphic designs that you'll love, such as our brand new I Heart Camping design.
Our fifth and final shirt perfectly encapsulates what we believe is the reason that so many people love to spend a weekend here and there camping. It's our I Love Camping t-shirt, similar in concept but radically different in design from our last entry. You're out among the woods, the mountains, and the starry night sky, away from the suburban streets and city lights. In our eyes, this makes it one of the best chances that you'll have to commune with nature. As important as animals are to us, a healthy environment is just as important, wouldn't you agree?
Thank you for once again taking the time to check out some of the awesomely funny t-shirts that we have for sale here at CrazyDog T-shirts. Before you go, be sure to take advantage of our automatic promo codes. Whether you want two shirts or four, you'll receive your discount automatically at checkout. Have a fantastic week! Love always, and save the whales! :)

If you're anything like the moms who work here in our Rochester, NY facility, you know what it's like to feel completely drained of energy. Whether they're running around to get the kids to school, digging deep to complete things at work, or cleaning up around the house before they go to bed at night, there's always something for them to do. That's why we came up with this beautiful new Mom Battery Low t-shirt, which is available in sizes S-2XL today!

In case you have questions about our women's slim fit t-shirts, make sure check the size chart at the bottom of this page. Our ladies tees fit like juniors, which is why we often recommending picking a size up if you're unsure.
Shifting gears over to the dads out there, we wanted to ask if yours happens to be a science fiction fan? If so, chances are that they'll love our brand new I Am a Father Like My Father Before Me design. This cool t-shirt is perfect for dads, grandfathers, and anyone else who is followed in the footsteps of their father by becoming one themselves. All of our men's tees come in sizes small through 5XL and fit like a modern unisex. Bonus points if they end up wearing it when they go to see the next big installment of the sci-fi franchise when it hits theaters.

A number of items from our World's Okayest series of t-shirts have gone viral several times over the past few years, and our World's Okayest Dad t-shirt is no different. This CrazyDog original comes in four different color shirts, but that's just for starters. It's also available as a hoodie, and a high-quality ceramic coffee mug. Everything a dad needs all in one product!
