Hey there guys!

This week I've been working on some seperate professional projects so there's not been a huge amount in terms of updates.
However, there are some new things, as promised, coming this weekend. I'm going to make it a free download update, with templates and resources over the 2 days.

Also, we almost have a winner for the next templates, being a lead between V-Neck and Polo Shirt.
I will try and get male and female fits. Voting closes Wed 26th Oct so get your choices in! 1st and 2nd place will be completed.

Also, leave comments below for anything you'd like to see or leave it in the Forum.

Coming soon,

-New Raglan / Baseball Tee Templates

-Smart Mask Updates for existing Templates (for ease of use)

-Other updates to improve ease, finish and lighting for older templates.

- Polo and V-Neck Tees


Also, if any of you have seen the video on How To Use the Premium Business Card Template, what did you think?
Would you guys like extended tutorials? Preferrably with voiceover? Let me know (if so, which ones in particular) and I'll try and hook it up.

Anyway, thanks for the support as always.
Just a short one this week, but stick around for more soon!

Hello there guys and gals.
Here we are one, full-week after the update and people are getting interested. I'm really enojying making these new products for everyone and the feedback I get is always great. Be it good or bad.

Which brings me onto this week's topic of conversation.
My aims for TheApparelGuy over the next year or so and what tis means for you guys and little bit of personal stuff that has been going on since I've been gone. If you'd be so kind as to endulge a little self-reflection.

So, as some of you know this page has been somewhat of a passion-project of mine, with no real aspirations of success at all. I have run it by myself and created every single product available in store.
All I can say within the last 5 years is how thankful I am.
Being featured on major design websites and on top-lists for some of the best apparel resources online, I am incredibly grateful.
It has allowed to me re-consider my career in Design and has given me the experience and belief that I can run this legitimately as a business.

Not just to benefit myself, but in order to keep providing for you lot. Week on week.

I had (approximately) a 2 year hiatus from my career, a very trying and testing time in my life. In fact, the last year has probably been the hardest year of my life so far.
To have come out of this and now be on the verge of owning and operating my own business is just crazy, for me personally. I couldn't have imagined I could be in this position even 6 months ago.

It's for these reasons and many more that I'm whole-heartedly committed to providing you with the best service I can.

As you may have noticed, new templates are recieving free updates, these may not always be free depending on how much work I have to put in, but ultimately the purpose is to give you more for what you paid for (or didn't! Free templates are being updated too).
On top of this I am going to be trying to provide as many different resources as I can come up with. Keep sending me requests! I love them and you always think of things I just can't.

Also, this is why I have set up these new polls and forums. To help you get the best possible customer service and have resources available you will find useful, ones which you actually want.

In summary, I want TheApparelGuy to be a hub for like-minded creatives to get free and extremely affordable resources, to hopefully help you make your own money, from being your wonderful creative selves.

Every purchase, download, comment, tweet, instalike, facebook like and share help me on my journey. Help me keep creative, help me have the resources to provide for you, most importantly.
So thank you, all of you.

Sincerely,
Pete ~TheApparelGuy

Apparel Guy 2015 Logo TRANSPARENT-01 by TheApparelGuy

Hello everybody!

I just want to let you all know that over the past couple of years, I have taken somewhat of a hiatus regarding my career in graphic design and my concomitance to TheApparelGuy.
Some big changes have been happening however and it has let me have the opportunity to pursue this resource (and my career in design) full-time. A huge personal step for myself and one I plan to use to it's utmost. To provide not only for myself, but to give back to you guys and gals who have supported me for the past 5 years, on DeviantArt as well as my other social media platforms.
Starting this fall a MAJOR update is coming into effect here on TheApparelGuy and I'm extremely excited about it.
We'll be introducing loads of new products as well as remastered versions of about 70% of our original products with new views, better lighting, etc and now,

All of our templates will have support for non-Adobe users.


The aim of TheApparelGuy over the next few years is to provide an all-in-one resource for designers, merchandisers, businesses and more. To save costs on marketing, promotion and workflow with high quality products at low costs.
And when I say low costs...I mean low costs.

Due to what we've built here together, myself and you my incredible community of users and watchers.

The templates will be going on sale at between $1-$3

 (or $2-$4 depending on what we can get away with on DA)
This will include bundle packs for extra savings or the opportunity just get what you need, and when.

This doesn't mean we don't still have free stuff!

As part of my mission statement, I have a strong belief that this resource was founded on a freeshare platform. As that is the case, it will always provide free resources. Many current resources are being remastered and uploaded for free aswell.
So fear not! For we still have plenty of cool new templates for absolutely NOTHING on a fortnightly basis. With premium content coming every week!
This will included, but not be limited to.
  • Killer Photoshop / Illustrator Swatches
  •  Fantastic Photoshop / Illustrator Brushes
  •  Extremely helpful Vector Resources
  • Super time-saving Adobe Animate .FLA templates
  • Hints, tips and advice in blogs and journals updated regularly
  • A brand new Tait Design | TheApparelGuy YouTube channel with more of the same, in bitesize video goodness!
  • and much more as we progress into the future....
So I'd like to take this opportunity personally, to thank every Deviant, guest and 3rd party site that has promoted my work. Without you guys I would have never been able to do this.

We go live by the end of September. I hope to see you all again soon.

Peter Tait - Founder and Owner of TheApparelGuyTM

I'd appreciate it if you could hashtag TAG!

Word travels fast, but it travels faster over the internet.

Just put up either your favourite template, or a new one, one I've made from your request...
Whatever your fancy! Just provide the link and hashtag me with the following:

*DOWNLOAD ISSUES*
A lot of users have had problems downloading my templates, I can whole-heartedly assure you.
The links DO work! It seems to be a problem in Google Chrome. If you update your chrome to
it's newest version (control<about) it should be fine!
*REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR BROWSER UP-TO-DATE TO SOLVE ANY FURTHER CONFLICTS*


I love you all! Keep up the feedback and check by from time to time.

Yours, forever and always.

Hello there poor people of the World!

I am Peter Tait. University dropout, Designer and your personal guide to my DA mission.

I am wanting to build the Internet's largest collection of Free templates for Clothing, Merchandise and Promo Items.
But to achieve this goal I am going to need your help!

My collection is small right now, but it is ever expanding and I want to know.
"WHAT DO YOU WANT MADE INTO A PSD TEMPLATE?"

Simple question, simple answer.

"Everything"

Although, I cannot think of everything as I only use between 5 & 10% of my brain apparently, so you will need
to help me on this one.

You got a piece of clothing or merch you have a great idea for but no way to properly show it off?
Ask me to build you a template that is fun, great looking. user friendly and most importantly....FREE!


There are 3 rules however!

1) The template must be for Merchandise, Clothing and Promo Items. Take a look at my gallery and you'll see what I mean
2) You must enjoy it.
3) (Optional, but appreciated) Please mention me on your post, website, DA page..whatever to help get traffic through here and share the templatey goodness!

So, go ahead, give me a note or comment and just ask!
Alternatively Email me at: petertaitdesign@gmail.com

I look forward to sharing my works and I hope you all enjoy them!

Love, TheApparelGuy
