The Yetee Blog

Introducing: Yetee Upcycling

So when life gives you lemons we all know what to do. But what about shirts? We sell them cheap, we donate them for fundraisers, we give them away. But what if we can transform them into something new?

This was the idea behind Yetee Upcycling. We started this division of the Yetee with one person: Pam. She took home a few boxes of shirts to make some blankets. They turned out rad, but then she showed me these pillows that she made. They were fantastic. Turning our shirts into these throw pillows with fantastic designs.

So today we are officially launching Yetee Upcycling. The idea is to start with Pam, if this grows, then Pam will train the next worker. We hope to hire local talented people that want to put their skills to work. If a pillow or blanket doesn't sell, then it will be donated to a local shelter or organization in need. We want to turn our excess into a positive force in the community.

Artist Spotlight: Jason Cryer

California-based awesome t-shirt designer Jason Cryer answers The Yetee’s questions

 Jason Cryer is a San Anselmo, California-based designer that has been collaborating with The Yetee to make awesome t-shirts and pins for years. Cryer’s works can be dark and gritty, while also being adorable and fun, which makes for interesting and compelling designs. Besides working with The Yetee, Cryer’s claim to fame is an official Twin Peaks t-shirt design, personally approved by David Lynch. We got in touch with the graphic designer to learn a little more.

What inspired you to become an artist? 

I consider myself more of a graphic designer than an artist — art is about self-expression, but that’s not always the goal in design. I’m not a skilled illustrator but I love working with typefaces, photos, lines, colors, etc. You can express a lot with no imagery at all. Record covers, and particularly the work of Rob Jones, drew me to graphic design. I split my time between more business-oriented design work and creative work.

3 Logos created by Cryer for theyetee

How long have you been making t-shirt designs? How did you get connected with The Yetee?

 About 7 years. The Yetee was fairly new when I started submitting designs, but it’s all a bit fuzzy. Over the years, I’ve developed a great friendship with the folks who run the show. Can’t ask for a better group of people to work with.

Can you tell me the inspiration behind your Yetee designs? 

Any design I make for The Yetee is something that has a personal attachment for me. I try not to follow trends, and most of my designs are colored by some sort of nostalgia — I don’t get the same inspiration from modern pop culture. I enjoy reducing things into a simple iconic graphic. I generally prefer designs that are only a few colors and not too complicated.


What/who inspires you? 

Massimo Vignelli, Aaron Draplin, The Designers Republic and dozens more I can’t remember right now. Saul Bass. Pentagram. David Lynch. Steve Jobs. Kraftwerk. Braun. Polytron. Keita Takahashi.

What medium do you like to work in? 

The majority of my designs are created entirely in Illustrator, sometimes a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. I enjoy drawing and working in a variety of mediums, but my skills are best expressed through Illustrator and Photoshop.

What is your dream job? 

I would love to design movie posters or work somewhere like the Criterion Collection or Apple.


What work have you done that you are most proud of?  

Designing an official Twin Peaks t-shirt that was personally approved by David Lynch was a huge honor for me.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be? 

I would love to visit Japan when I can find the opportunity, so much of my work is inspired by Japanese culture. Italy and Germany are two other big destinations, too.

Shirt Price Increase

We know, this is a scary title to a post, but we promise it isn’t that scary! For the last 6 years, we’ve been selling our daily shirts at $11, and it’s gone great! We’ve grown and changed a lot over that time as a company and a community. We want to make sure that change continues to happen without sacrificing the things about the Yetee you know and love.  

Starting today, our daily shirts will be priced at $12 plus shipping. See? I told you it wasn’t scary. We’ve only increased by 1 dollar!

We’ve had to increase our prices for one simple reason: The Shirts.

Our prices haven’t changed, but our costs have. We want to make sure we continue to offer the same hi-quality screen printing that you are used to, without sacrificing quality.

In a growing marketplace where on demand printing is widely available, it is important to us to continue offering affordable limited edition silkscreened t-shirts. We also wanted to be as upfront as possible about our reasoning; we want to keep giving you what you deserve! Quality tees and pizza. But we can really only do the quality tees part.

Love,

The Yetee

Introducing… Yetee Printing

Since the summer of 2011, The Yetee has been providing amazing and affordable tees for your torso. In 2014, because of your support, we have moved all of our printing in house.

What does this mean to you? Less wait for you to get your shirt. Better quality control. Jobs for our amazing print shop guys (as seen in this video) and more flexibility for The Yetee to offer cool bonuses like buttons, stickers and more. This is only the beginning.
