Fast Dog Print Co is a Mississippi-based t-shirt printing company owned and operated by father-daughter team, James & Kelly. The process they use involves taking the digital product and printing it directly on the garment, which means that you get a high-quality product with lots of attention to detail. Fast Dog can transfer your high quality photograph to a garment or help you create a design. The Etsy shop currently has over 100 designs available ranging from Disney to Harry Potter to collegiate designs. Special orders are also welcome, so don’t be afraid to ask! Here’s what Kelly has to say about the shop.
How did you get started in the t-shirt business?
Well it all started with my Dad’s store needing staff t-shirts. We got prices online and around town and just weren’t really thrilled with what they had to offer. We looked into direct to garment printing and we were contacted by a company in CA that sells direct to garment t-shirt printers. We decided to take the leap and start our own t-shirt printing business! My dad is retired but owns a small business and I’m a full time graphic designer for a newspaper and magazine so we thought the t-shirts were just going to be a fun hobby. Little did we know how fast it would grow into a full time job! We had no idea the demand for custom t-shirts!
Favorite part of owning your own shop?
My favorite about the shop is when I get a custom order request. My little graphic designer senses start to tingle lol I love designing and I love making people’s ideas come to life.
Least favorite part?
My least favorite part is dealing with the finances. My dad is the money guy as far as this business is concerned and for good reason.
What is your favorite design?
Oh man, my favorite design?! Of course I love all my Disney designs but honestly my favorite design since starting this business has to be our logo. The fast dog silhouette is actually my corgi Bella who is by my side through every design process.
Kelly sent two shirts for my husband and I to review. We’re both wearing our normal sizes, medium & XXL, in these unisex tees. In honor of our upcoming vacation, we both decided on Disney inspired t-shirts. I love this quote about growing old vs. growing up from Walt Disney. I’ve never been to Disney World, but I think that I’m more excited than the kids. I’ll definitely be that mom that makes the entire family wear Disney tees for the entire vacation. Stay tuned for that! The t-shirt color is a vibrant red, and this is a unique design that I probably won’t see much of at Disney. I love to be one-of-a-kind. My Star Wars fanatic husband chose the Super Trooper tee, which will be perfect for our day at Hollywood Studios. Both of these designs are printed on Gildan 100% cotton tees that are soft, but still structured. I can’t wait to pack these for our vacation. Which, in all honesty, will probably be the most exhausting vacation ever, but oh, so much fun. I can’t wait! There are lots of other Disney options available at Fast Dog, so be sure to check them out!
