Okay folks, a little bit of housekeeping here. So, first of all there are new designs in The Pajiba Store.
Shop by design — Our format has improved! Now instead of having to find the right “collection” (there were nine for each design which was idiotic and irritating) you can just click on the design you like and you’ll see everything available for it. Much better.
Shop by item — This is a huge improvement as well. So let’s say you decide to buy a Pajiba shirt for your child. You can just go to the store, pick the design, and then select the dropdown menu that says “Kids & Babies”.
In order to make these design changes happen, Spreadshirt dropped some products. It’s bullshit, frankly, and I wish I had noticed so I could have given everyone a heads up, but I must have missed that memo. Anyway, this is what they got rid of:

I’m PISSED I didn’t get an umbrella and a teddy bear. But by eliminating certain lines, they’ve been able to lower their prices on certain items. And now they have aprons.
Now then: Some deeper design dives.
Make Your Anything — How do I do this?
It’s simple. First, you select the Pajiba design you like. Let’s say this one:
But we don’t like how that looks and we want to personalize it. It will always say:
DO YOU WANT TO EDIT THIS DESIGN?
CLICK DIRECTLY ON THAT.
You should always always click on that, because every shirt can be altered to fit your personal taste.
So now we’re in the t-shirt designer. Let’s change the color of the shirt for starters.
Okay that’s better. But let’s change the fist color. All we do is click on it and this menu comes up.
You can click every color to see what you like, but let’s make it white to keep it simple. And let’s put the fist on the BACK of the shirt between the shoulder blades.
SIMPLY DRAG THE FIST IMAGE DOWN TO THE BACK OF THE SHIRT AND RELEASE.
Now we’re on the back of the shirt. But that image is way too big. Simply click on it and resize is using the bottom right corner and move it around using the top left corner.
(The T-shirt designer gives you a guide line to show you where the center of the printable area is.)
Now let’s go back to the front. Click on the “Front” box at the bottom of the screen. If you want to scroll through Spreadshirt’s free designs, you can click on ‘CHOOSE A DESIGN.’
For now, let’s just add a little text:
CLICK ON ADD TEXT.
Type in your message. Change whatever you like on the right hand side. Font, size color, etc.
And once you have what you like, click on ADD TO CART and you’re done.
Making a non-pajiba design — Let’s say I’m going to make a gift for Dustin, but it’s not going to be Pajiba related. So from the main store page I click on CREATE.
That takes me back to the T-shirt designer and it’ll load the last thing you created.
Now click on CHOOSE A PRODUCT.
It brings up everything you can use as your canvas.
Dustin likes hats so let’s pick that. Click on ACCESSORIES to find the hats.
Once the hat comes up, I pull a deadpool image from Spreadshirt’s free designs and add some text to the front and viola! A hat Dustin wouldn’t wear in a million years.
Now let’s make something for Seth. How about a pillowcase? I click on CREATE > CHOOSE A PRODUCT > ACCESSORIES > PILLOWCASES.
I choose a heart design, change the heart color to blue, stencil some text over that and I have the perfect gift for Seth, something to remind him of my affection every night before he shuts his lil peepers.
You can also upload your own images if the spirit moves you.
In short, this is a simple tool to make all kinds of great gifts. A few years back I decided to never wear a random t-shirt again. Now everything I wear has some personal meaning to me. I made one with my favorite band (which I couldn’t find anywhwere). I made t-shirts for my gaming group and sent them each a customized one (Tank, Medic, Squishy etc). I make a customized T-shirt for my kids for every birthday. It’s simple, easy, and anyone can do it. And The Pajiba Store gets a bump every time you do it. So, get out there and create create create!

Did you know that you can make ANY shirt at The Pajiba Store? Just pick a shirt you like and UPLOAD YOUR OWN DESIGN. We still get a bump for every shirt you make, even if it’s not Pajiba-specific.
