Hitchhiking Across America using Tech and Social Media: Q&A with “Where’s Woncho”
Back in college, I occasionally ran into a shirtless Asian man who rode bicycles and would high-five strangers across campus. His name was Woncho. A not-so ordinary man, he’s a pretty remarkable individual.
We discuss his impulsive trekking across North America and Canada. Even though traveling with strangers is delightful, Woncho doesn’t stray from describing his daily struggles. There is more that goes into this hitchhiking thing than I initially expected. Woncho integrates social media and technology into his travels whether it’s to ask for rides or to search for places to sleep. Outsiders will view his social experiment as either brave or crazy because it comes with much risk-taking. Although, Woncho could care less about what others have to think and will do as he pleases.
Eco Friendly Home Decor: Potigy (Video)
Potigy is a brand that is beautifully crafting eco friendly home decor. They achieve environmental friendliness by collecting paper and plastics cleaned up from around Austin. These materials are then up-cycled into unique, modern, and attractive decor for the home and garden.
Catching up with the minds behind the brand was inspiring. Philip and Lucas share the compelling story behind Potigy and what it means to create with social responsibility and sustainability.
Local Bands for Hire: Solstice Live
Matt Ford is the sort of guy that you see at a show and signal a head nod at with a mutual understanding that it’s going to be a great night for live music. You wouldn’t have guessed that he organized the entire show and is CEO of Solstice Live, a web platform for music that services venues and local bands for hire. While speaking to Matt, I found that he was easy-going and free spirited as he didn’t mind having a conversation without shoes on. We discussed his roles as a company owner, boyfriend, father, musician, athlete, and businessman. Whether barefooted or not, Matt is just a guy who wants to connect everyone through live music and huge dance parties. We should probably thank him for that!

This video spotlights Austin’s own DJ Buck Rodgers. Austin is a place of much talent and the cream always rises to the top. We were first introduced to Jordan when he called the shop to ask about some tees. He needed them quick, just in time for his Redbull Threestyle 2015 qualifier in New Orleans. He took New Orleans and has since moved on to the next round. The following Threestyle qualifier will be in Phoenix where he will compete on April 2nd.

10 Tips for Success
Spoken Word Poetry and Life as a Creative in Austin (Video)
Hanging out with Montsho was an experience in itself. Unbeknownst to him, he gives me a refreshing perspective on life and the world of spoken word poetry. With a magnifying demeanor, he carries a strong, resilient presence. Montsho attracts a certain amount of positive energy wherever he goes. Standing next to me, he is three times my size and one of the kindest souls that you will meet in this lifetime.
Upon my arrival, I wasn’t surprised to catch Montsho peacefully sipping hot tea and meditating in his backyard. He is a man of few words but can impact others with whatever he needs to say when the moment is right. Montsho is a great inspiration and has a unique ability to bring people together. He achieves this with creativity and eloquence through poetry. We live in a bustling and complicated world, we should take inspiration from this man. He simply sees life as a conscious experience and less complicated than most think it should be.

T Shirt Printing Austin: Best Practices
Oh Boy! Print Shop is an experienced t shirt printing company. We encourage you to read our reviews and testimonials from previous customers to learn about our track record of delivering t shirts printed at the highest quality.
Determine the number of shirts that you need. Our screen printing company offers price breaks for larger orders, so consider ordering in bulk if you need a large quantity of t-shirts.
Select the right t shirt style and material. Consider the intended use of the garment and choose a material that will meet your needs.
Cotton is the most popular material for screen printing, and for good reason. It’s breathable, comfortable, and takes ink well, resulting in vibrant and long-lasting designs. Cotton is also a relatively affordable material, making it a great option for large quantity orders.
Tri-blend t-shirts are made from a blend of three materials – typically cotton, polyester, and rayon. These shirts are known for their softness and durability and are often used for high-end retail brands or for printing designs that require a unique vintage style.
The cotton-Polyester blend combines the breathability of cotton with the wrinkle-resistant and moisture-wicking properties of polyester. This t shirt is ideal for athletic or performance-based designs that need to hold up to sweat and frequent washing.
Dri Fit material: Some of these types are made from synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, or spandex. These materials are designed to be moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and durable, making them the ideal garment for sports teams or a brand tailored for athletic events. They can be as comfortable or breathable as cotton or cotton blends and print very well.
Finalize your design and ensure that it meets the requirements for screen printing on your choice of apparel. Make sure that your design is in a high-resolution file format, and confirm that the colors are correct and clearly defined.
Consider the placement of the design on the t shirt. Discuss with our screen printing team where the design will be placed on the t-shirt, and ensure that it is positioned correctly and centered.
Finalize the Details
Confirm the details of the order, including the quantity, shirt style, material and design. Make sure that you understand the timeline for the order and any additional fees for rush orders or design revisions.
Provide clear and detailed instructions for shipping and delivery. Confirm the shipping address and any special delivery instructions, such as a specific delivery date or time.
By following these best practices for creating custom apparel, you can ensure that you are extremely happy throughout the entire process. Remember to communicate clearly with our screen printing experts and ask any questions that you may have throughout the process to ensure a successful outcome.
Descendants of Erdrick T Shirt
Descendants of Erdrick recreate music from our favorite video game soundtracks and it’s fantastic!
We had the pleasure of printing their “Dragon Warrior” t shirt, illustrated by Melissa Flores. Our main focus for this job was to keep the fine detail and original integrity of the design intact.
For the text in the artwork, the shirt features a split fountain print to achieve the gradient. We wanted Melissa’s design to translate perfectly on to a t shirt and this print makes us proud.
You can buy the t shirt here.
