Italian Shamrock from Flagnation

Today we look at the Italian Shamrock and designs available at . These particular ones all have a green background on the product, to make them just a little more fun. I love this design because you can celebrate three of your ancestries, heritages and cultures all at once. In each leaf of the shamrock is a flag. One for, of course, Ireland. Another for the USA, and one for Italy.

First up, we have a fun Rickshaw messenger bag with many Italian Shamrocks. To purchase it, click on the picture below.

Italy in LOVE at

We will now visit the shop at and see what products it offers in the Italian LOVE design.

Skreened does not offer a lot of products for designers to work on, as their web site states, “Founded in 2006, Skreened is the leader in ethical and socially responsible on-demand printing”, they endeavor to not harm the environment with their inks and printing, as well as make sure employees are treated well. Basically, I can design hoodies, sweat shirts, all kinds of tees, and tote bags. Their stuff is very nice, too.

Unlike most PODs, Skreened gives the designer (me) the ability to offer my designs in many options. For years, almost all PODs have offered printing on light and dark colored T-shirts. The dark colors require a special process that is much more expensive. Most PODs will not give the same option on lighter colors, even though white in the design will show up as the color of the fabric. So, in this case, if you wanted a pink shirt with the Italian LOVE design, the white part of the heart would show up as pink. What I LOVE about Skreened, is they allow me to offer my design both ways, in the less expensive printing option, in case you don’t care about the pink in the white part of the flag. And, I can offer it in the more expensive printing process, which uses a white under base, so your garment will look more authentically Italian. But you get to choose because you are paying for it!

I can also offer my designs with printing on front, back or both. This means that all my designs at Skreened come in six options and are coded for you as follows:

1W – Design on front only, no white under base
1C – Design on front only, white under base
2W – Design on front and back, no white under base
2C – Design on front and back, white under base
3W – Design on back only, no white under base
3C – Design on front only, white under base

You can purchase the item below by clicking on the picture or here. It will allow you to choose from the products available without the white under base and with the design on front and back.
