Changing the perception of old age

Last month we printed some great tour t-shirts for ChangingAging. We were really interested in what they were doing. Their charismatic spokesperson is Dr Bill Thomas. He started with the idea that “what we need is a radical reinterpretation of longevity that makes elders (and their needs) central to our collective pursuit of happiness and well-being“.

In other words, society’s attitude to old-age is messed up and we could do much better.

You’re buying the wrong size t-shirts for your team or event (and it’s costing you money!)

So, you’ve been tasked with organising the t-shirts.

Now you have to do the hard part. Firstly, you’ll need to contact printers to get a quote. This can be a time consuming process itself, and I’ll address this in a later post — it’s why we’ve built the fastest, smartest t-shirt ordering website in the world. But one of the main questions you’ll definitely be asked, and often the most difficult to answer is
