danielkvitiello got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Coffee Collage T-Shirt Design Using Ink Made From Coffee Grounds
Check out danielkvitiello's T-shirt contest…
BACKGROUND & DESIGN CONCEPT This t-shirt was a backer reward for the Handground Coffee Grinder Kickstarter campaign. We surveyed our 4000 backers to determine a concept for the shirt. The winning concept is a large outline of the Handground icon (icon uploaded below) on the FRONT of the shirt, filled internally with drawings of other coffee related items and/or words that relate to Handground. See the attached image below of the brown and blue shirts to get an idea for the look we are trying to achieve. You can also view the image at this link: http://i.imgur.com/MD5Nvpb.jpg We found a company that prints designs on T shirts with ink made from coffee grounds. Click here to view an example of the outcome http://www.domesticstencilworks.com/products/glory We want to use this company to make the t-shirts, so the design will be on a grey soft tri-blend crew neck t-shirt using dark brown "coffee" dye for the design. Feel free to upload multiple combinations of colors (such as Handground red) for the design, but make sure to include at least one submission that has the design in the "coffee colored ink" on the grey shirt like shown on the Domestic Stencilworks website. Here is a link to a folder with images of the Handground coffee grinder used in the Kickstarter so that you can get a better idea of our product. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0xmjrW2qC4jfjFzOWFDUU1McmtJU25FYnpNdTdDWUQxVEZPUnNjRmFHMm1qdnNHWlBldFU&usp=sharing You can view the Handground Kickstarter campaign to get an idea of our design style here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/handground/precision-coffee-grinder-better-grind-more-flavor/description We've also posted our entire story since day one on Instagram: http://instagram.com/handground

What to avoid
Please avoid using other coffee grinders (hario, porlex, baratza, mahlkonig) or general coffee products like Keurig, coffee pods, Mr.Coffee etc. These are not considered specialty coffee and this shirt is for people who have a passion for specialty coffee. THANK YOU!
