Daddy's Little Co-Pilot Children's Tshirt
Here’s our newest design: Daddy’s Little Co-pilot.
Designed for daddy pilots and their sons and daughters, the design is cute, friendly, and colorful.
It’s available for girls or boys, in a bunch of different colors. Click on over to Daddy’s Little Co-pilot to see our selection. We’ve got it on kid’s shirts, baby’s onesies, and even bibs. The printing is high-quality flex printing, designed to last longer than the shirt fabric and remain vibrant. (None of that ink-on-fabric stuff that tends to fade!)
Are you a mommy, grandma, or grandpa? No worries; we’ll have designs made for your kids or grand kids within 48 hours!
Hi, Plane Apparel fans. It’s been over a month since my last blog update. My apologies. I’ve been busy making final changes to the site and preparing for our social media roll-out.
Here’s what we’ve done:
- Apparel design thumbnails now use higher-quality images, and are examples pulled right off of actual apparel
- Tag pages have been fixed. You can now browse all our apparel by keyword tags!
- We’ve better-organized our design categories and provided a collapsing category listing. Check it on to the right ->
- Our front-page banner has been changed, and now serves as a space for primary announcements. Right now we’re running free shipping for orders over $50!
- Facebook like buttons have been removed from the front shop page designs. These were causing errors in some browsers. Sharing your favorite design can now be done by clicking to the design and sharing it individually.
- BIG: You can now search apparel with each design, filtered by men/women/kids/accessories! See the new drop down box for this functionality!
- Behind the scenes: implemented page caching; you should find that if you’re a repeat visitor, the page loads very quickly.
- We’ve fired up Facebook and Twitter accounts for Plane Apparel. Please like us, and we’ll be starting a big social media push soon!
Stay tuned. More to come. Email us
if you’ve got questions, comments, or suggestions!
Eat. sleep. Aviate. - Custom Aviation Design by Plane Apparel
My design team has released a cool new aviation design called Eat. Sleep. Aviate. It has a bit of a road sign or airport sign look to it with contrasting neutral grey-scale coloring with a dash of bright color on the word AVIATE. It looks great as a custom airplane shirt, on an iPad case, or any other type of aviation apparel.
Every pilot I meet has a great passion for flying. There’s something about soaring through the air that captures the imagination and invigorates the soul. This design is made for all of you who live and breathe aviation; those of you who would like to do nothing but EAT. SLEEP. AVIATE.
Keep in mind that this design can be applied to a multitude of products. You can put it on men’s, women’s, and children’s aviation shirts, iPad cases, bags, hats, baby clothes, etc. If you like this design but don’t see it available on a product you want, please send me an email and I’ll set up a custom product for you.
So head on over and see the products available for this custom aviation apparel design: Eat. Sleep. Aviate.
Plane Apparel – Site Updates, FAQ Page, New Aviation Design for Apparel
We’re still working on heavy updates to the back end of the website (basically, the stuff you can’t see). However, tonight we’re fleshing out our FAQ page. You’ll see many more questions answered here as we fill this page out. We’ll have information about our products, shipping, payment, etc. Right now, you’ll see only a couple of FAQs on the page, but expect that to change soon.
My design team is also preparing a new aviation design which I think you’ll be pleased with. I’m not yet releasing a sneak preview, but if you live and breathe aviation, I think you’re going to like it. Stay tuned for its release on a variety of different aviation garments.
And don’t forget, we want to be YOUR SOURCE for cool aviation, airplane, and pilot gear and apparel. Shoot us an email and let us know what you expect from us!

A Custom Design for Aviation Apparel
UPDATE: This design has been released!
EAA’s Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin will be held from July 25 – 31, 2011. For pilots and aviation enthusiasts, this is arguably the greatest airshow in the U.S.
Oshkosh is my Mecca
There are only two types of pilots: those who have been to Airventure, and those who wish they had.
Here’s a sneak peak at what the design team is working on. The preliminary title is OSHKOSH is my MECCA. This design will be available on various products later this week. Keep in mind this is just one iteration of the design, and is subject to change.
We tend to keep designs simple, but visually pleasing and to-the-point, with a good touch of wit when appropriate. Leave a comment below this post and let me know what you think.
PlaneApparel.com Site Tweaks and Upcoming Aviation Apparel Design Release

if you have ideas or suggestions.
Aviation Apparel, Site Updates
Tonight I worked some cosmetic changes on the site. Things work a bit more smoothly now, and look a bit more pleasant. I added a Contact page, where you can email us with comments, complaints, ideas, or chit-chat about planes or aviation.
The apparel I added this evening is a men’s aviation neck tie. Written on it is the ubiquitous phrase of the non-towered environment: “Any traffic please advise.” Whether you love or hate this bastion of non-standard phraseology, you might as well wear it on a tie!
Over the weekend we’ll have some more additions to the website, which will add both front-end and back-end functionality. And we’ve got some designs and products in the work for release next week. In the medium term, we’ve got products for pilots, non-pilots, pets, and people on the docket. If you fly, like flying, or want to fly, bookmark this site. Stay tuned!
Plane Apparel – Your Aviation T-shirt and Apparel Shop
After a lengthy wait and a lot of long hours, the site is up and open for business! If you hadn’t already guessed it, we’re a site focused on aviation apparel; everything from t-shirts to pants to polo shirts to pet shirts to accessories.
Needless to say, there will be numerous changes and touch-ups in the coming days, including changes not just to aesthetics but also to usability. At the moment, you’ll see very few products available, but we’ll be adding to our design inventory each week.
I’m still fleshing out major portions of the website. Soon you’ll see a Contact page where you can submit ideas, comments, questions, or complaints, directly to me. You’re guaranteed to get a response from me. Promise. We’ll eventually be plugged in to social media of all types, so fear not that your Google+ or Facebook friends won’t hear about us.
I’ll have a number of weeks where I tidy up major functions of the website, interspersed with some design and apparel releases. Once the website is functional to internal QC Stage 1 goals, my design team (yes, I have one) will begin a period of heavy design/apparel releases. As of today, the date of our site rollout, the Plane Apparel Design Team has a list of 30 design ideas to flesh out and publish.
So, stay tuned! Stick with us while we get up and running, and you won’t be sorry. And be prepared to indulge your aviation addiction!
