Hickory, NC (PressExposure) February 22, 2009 -- Just about everyone spends more then they should. Maybe a recession is just what we need to cut back to essentials. Less waste, less to take care of - it could really be good for us!
givitup, online print on demand store, has added clever recession t-shirts and gifts. In the design the recess part of recession is a different color and matches âfrom spendingâ below it. The viewer sees âRecess from Spendingâ and also âRecessionâ.
âYou can put a positive spin on anything.â says owner Nancy Geiger. âRelate recession to your carefree childhood days of recess. Not spending isn't a bad thing!â
givitup opened in December of 2005 and has 380 designs on over 107 different products from t-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps and aprons to buttons, stickers, mouse pads, journals, mugs and teddy bears. Customers may also email their own designs, photos or text ideas for a custom order at no extra charge.
Geiger says, âT-shirts have always been a way for people to âbelongâ and âstand out.â The first written t-shirts were usually sports names. Then of course there are the school names and place names, all giving people a feeling of belonging to a group. Later came the âstatementsâ which set them a part. Their view of the world or opinion about something. The hip joke that made them cool. The rebellion against the establishment.
The beauty of print on demand is that the customer can get one item and not have to order in bulk.â
