Stadium Prints progress

Stadium Prints progress

A 6 month progress report

In the 6 months that I’ve been running the website I’ve managed to produce 120 prints for 103 different clubs.

I’ve completed all 42 clubs in the top four divisions in Scotland. All available individually as well as being compiled into a Ground Hopping Tracker. Click HERE to see it.

I’ve made good progress on clubs outwith the top 42 and have now completed prints for 22 non-league Scottish clubs.

I’ve managed to produce prints for 23 English clubs. Covering clubs from the Premiership right down to non-league teams such as Enfield Town and Tooting & Mitcham United.

I’ve also managed a few clubs from Northern Ireland, Wales, Italy, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina and Switzerland.

I’ve also started a new series called the ‘Legends’ series that covers grounds no longer with us.

So all in all it’s been a very, very busy 6 months.

I just want to finish with a massive thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way. Every comment, picture, nugget of advice has been greatly appreciated and they really have helped shaped how the prints look.

Thank you

Steve

How to write a T-Shirt blog post

How to write a T-Shirt blog post

I don’t have a clue how to write a t-shirt blog post. Not a clue. So, sorry about the misleading headline.

Palmerston Park, Dumfries

Is this a t-shirt blog post or not?

It will be. Indulge me a second. I make football prints of football stadiums. It started off as Scottish stadiums but i quickly had to branch out beyond the border and venture to pastures new. A lot of these designs will only appeal to fans of the depicted club, but some of them, I hope, have a broader appeal and deserve to be seen by a non-football audience.

Finally onto the t-shirt part. All my designs are available on t-shirts but i want to try and showcase some of my favourites. The ones I think could appeal to people outside of the footballing community. To try and reach people that like cool t-shirts, no matter what is on the front. People who want something a little bit different.

Enough with the text, get onto the t-shirts

Ok, here goes. First up you’d think it’s be one of Scotland’s big clubs? Maybe Celtic. Perhaps Aberdeen or Dundee United. No. We are going for Netherdale in Galashiels.

Netherdale, Galashiels

Netherdale - Gala Fairydean Rovers
Netherdale, Galashiels

A sensational example of Brutalism design, and probably my favourite stand in all of Scottish football. This stand splits opinion in Galashiels. Hell, it splits opinion across all walks of life in Scotland. I know what side of the argument I fall down on. Love it.

Easter Road, Leith

Easter Road - Hibs
Easter Road, Leith

Showing a portion of the south stand, the Salisbury Crags, and the famous Sunshine on Leith. I love how this one gives off a 70/80’s retro vibe. Like an old holiday advert from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Palmerston Park, Dumfries

Palmerston Park - Queen of the South
Palmerston Park, Dumfries

I bet you never imagined that a set of floodlights could look so good on a t-shirt. These are no ordinary floodlights. These are the highest freestanding floodlights in all of Scottish football. Queen of the South are also celebrating their centenary in 2019. Congratulations on reaching 100.

Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff

Cardiff City Stadium - Cardiff City
Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff

Let’s have a treat from outside Scotland this time and head to Cardiff. If this design didn’t have any writing along with it I doubt anyone other than Cardiff fans would have guessed it was of a stadium.

La Bombonera, Buenos Aires

La Bombonera - Boca Juniors - t-shirt blog
La Bombonera, Buenos Aires

For our final t-shirt we have gone truly international and headed to Buenos Aires. The home of the world famous Boca Juniors, La Bombonera. My absolute favourite city in the world. Such an incredible place.

There we go, our t-shirt blog post is now complete. A small selection of some of our favourites so far.
