Welcome to GearGems.com, where we design all sorts of images for P.O.D. (print-on-demand)! We started out with the now-(in)famous Bratsche’s Viola Bazaar on CafePress in 2004. Since then, we’ve really grown to enjoy designing, and have opened shops at PrintFection and Zazzle. Viola players are quite creative folk - and we’ve got to make a living, too! (So much for the obligatory viola joke!)
We have designs sure to please musicians of every stripe, with more being added and planned all the time. Aficionados of many instruments and musical styles, famous composers - as well as some of their “noteworthy” quotations, images of colorful, collectible violin bottles, antique mandolins… the list goes on and on! (“Ivory Picking Gear” is also the home of our fine custom-made antique ivory plectra!). In addition, we have a lapidary design department for rock, mineral and gem enthusiasts, and finally, our most diverse and eclectic department, “Timely Signs”, which offers a large variety of wit, wisdom, opinion, animals, attitude, food & drink, hobby and passion fashion statement designs, all for your enjoyment!
Any design you see is available on a whole host of products including, but not limited to, t-shirts, sweatshirts & other apparel; mugs & drinkware, tote bags, decorative giftware, posters, stickers, mousepads, clocks, magnets and buttons. (Each POD company has a somewhat different offering of products on which to print.) Please stop in and browse our wares! Feel free to e-mail us with requests for personalization, custom designs, combinations or different image placements (back instead of front, for example), or your slogan suggestions and design ideas. We love to hear from our shoppers!
