We are E2…

Tshirts By E2 is the brainchild of a talented American designer (Elizabeth) and a British-Greek man, full of ideas (Elias). Elias and Elizabeth had been long distance friends for years before E2 began. It started in February 2010, as a running inside “joke” between them. Elizabeth’s previous online experience and Elias’s ideas started what they thought would be a crazy, fun venture and an outlet for their creativity. One year later the “joke” had blossomed into a growing business and it turned out to not be such a crazy idea after all. Now 5 years later E2 is still thriving, with shops on four major POD providers and well over 2000 unique designs. Not only has the business been successful, but it has continued to be a fun enterprise.

English Bloke + American Gal = A World of Fun

Elias Skourletos and Elizabeth Ponticello may be separated by an ocean (the Atlantic), but their minds are one. Together they’re the dynamic duo that makes up the popular CafePress shop, E2 T-shirts.

With Elias (the “idea man”) living in London and Beth (the “design queen”) hailing from Florida, you would think it would be a challenge running a successful business together. Not so. Not with CafePress anyway (not to mention Skype, webcams and other high-tech touches). Although they’ve met only once in person – when Beth flew across the pond recently – they’re constantly online bouncing ideas off each other for the next great T-shirt design.

Drawing inspiration from the news, current affairs, TV shows and simply walking the busy streets of London and Florida, the pair find more than enough topics for brilliant T-shirts (today they have more than 400 designs available in their shop). E2 T-shirts’ goal is to create designs that make people laugh, and ultimately brighten the day of people everywhere. With their multi-national background, it’s no wonder they’re also excited each time they rack-up sales in a new country. Because with designs this brilliant, two continents of customers simply isn’t enough.

E2 Fanteestic Years

knifewrench_tTwo fantastic years have passed since Tshirts by E2 was created. Born out of a need to creatively express our views and ideas, we have ploughed through the years with a prolific force, guiding us into the world of t-shirt design. We had a interesting first year, we ended up having hundreds of unique t-shirt designs in our online shop, creating our own branded web store, plus a virtual Second Life in-world store. Our ideas flourished and grew into a professionally designed shop, where customers can find witty, humorous, offensive and even scandalous tee designs.

In two years time we now have 1000+ designs, a few thousand t-shirt sales, and we still find it an extremely fun and creative endeavour – adding more designs to our shop, promoting our shop online with our blog and Facebook pages, and observing people from around the world buying and wearing our designs with a smile.

We wish to thank all of you who bought one of our t-shirts, and especially those that bought one as a Christmas present for someone else. It is always nice to know that under a Christmas tree somewhere in the world a present holds one of our designs inside. Therefore as a small gift to you, feel free to use our QR Code generator, its free, powerful and you can makes as many codes as you like. We are always here to help of course.

The future looks as red, as our E2 logo, and we intend to keep adding new, cool designs inspired by tv, movies, current affairs, and ones describing the world in our own unique way. Watch this space, as it will fill your screen with fantastic new designs this year. Summer, at least in the Northern hemisphere, is on its way, so get your t-shirts out.

E2: One year of t-shirts, not a “joke” anymore

Happy Birthday to Tshirts By E2, who is celebrating their one-year existence in the online world.

Co-Owners Elizabeth and Elias

Tshirts By E2 ( http://www.tshirtsbye2.com ) is the brainchild of a talented American designer (Elizabeth) and a British-Greek man, full of ideas (Elias). Elias and Elizabeth had been long distance friends for years by the time E2 began. It started in February 2010, as a running inside “joke” between them. Elizabeth’s previous online experience and Elias’s ideas started what they thought would be a crazy, fun venture and an outlet for their creativity. One year later the “joke” has blossomed into a growing business and it’s turned out to not be such a crazy idea after all. It does however continue to be fun.

We originally thought that we would create a shop mostly for us. A shop where we could design t-shirts that we liked, and we would like wearing. T-shirts and other basic cotton apparel are staples in our wardrobe and we love wearing our designs – on the street, in the house and even as pyjamas. We, therefore, created the shop to channel our own internal creativity, in a form that we could both wear. We never thought about sales numbers. We didn’t create the shop to become millionaires. We had planned, that if people liked some of our designs, we would at least recover our online costs.

A few months after opening, we realised that our creativity was overflowing. We found inspiration everywhere, and we had actually found a fantastic way to express ourselves. Within the first 6 months we already had 300 t-shirt designs and to our surprise, sales were steadily increasing each month. Our biggest sellers are Scrubs and The Big Bang Theory inspired creations. Both are hilarious TV series, which are hugely popular around the world. We also designed t-shirts for car enthusiasts, t-shirts that can project personality traits, as well as political, environmental and religious beliefs. We may have been naughty as well…

The success we had during the holiday season caught us by surprise. Unexpectedly in December, we got a wonderful opportunity, as one of our Scrubs t-shirts “Knife-Wrench” was featured on the ABCTV blog on CafePress. Within an hour of the story being posted our sales skyrocketed and the trend continued for the rest of the month, We were shocked to realise that so many people, all around the world, would be getting a present that we had created. Therefore, we wish to say a huge thank you to all our customers that have provided us with extra motivation to keep designing. However, we never create a design we wouldn’t like to wear ourselves.

So, after a very prolific year, we have 500 t-shirt designs in our shop and counting. As you can imagine at this point, February 2011, the idea of our shop as a “joke” has become obsolete. We continue having enormous fun coming up with new ideas but we have also created a professional online shop where fun designs co-exist with serious political and environmental concerns, sprinkled with hints of irony and sarcasm. We hope that our creativity will keep flowing at the same pace and we hope that people all over the world will continue enjoying our t-shirts.
