3 reasons why The Dudes are classier than Ron Burgundy’s Channel 4 News Team

With Duds by Dudes headquarters stationed in San Diego it’s only natural that we get our grove on to Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. It’s a fact that while Duds by Dudes is screen printing T-shirts we are kicking more ass than the Channel 4 news team. So hold onto your hymen, Olivia Newton John, because we are about to do a breakdown comparison of why Duds by Dudes would kick the Channel 4 News Team’s tushes into next Tuesday if we went mustache to mustache in an epic street battle.

1. Our hair always looks great!
You’ve seen the logo, you’ve met Brian and JT in person, you know we look good. Why even question the strapping silhouettes that come to you smiling through a circular halo of awesomeness? Let us enlighten you with a story, one day The Dudes were walking down the street, singing a beat-box acapella tune of “Afternoon Delight”. Minding their own business and not bothering anybody. Their hair was coiffed to perfection, when Cerberus, the 3 headed dog, jumped off a building and attacked them! They fended off the hell-fire beast using the power of their immaculate tresses. Laser beams shot out the tops of their heads, deflecting the beast and causing him to explode into a liquidy rain shower of ouzo. Although, none of the ouzo got onto The Dudes T-shirts, because Duds by Dudes shirts have their own magical stain resistant powers. Celebratory shots were had all around. Point being, The Dudes sport their fros better than any bros, and that’s a FACT!

2. We have not 1, but 4 kick ass ladies running the show
Sure, Ron has Veronica Corningstone, and while she is one stone cold fox, Duds by Dudes has four knock out babes running this show. Each one of the Dudettes, Juli, Sarah, Paulina, and Krysta, has more talent printing T-shirts and pool sharking than Veronica has blonde hair dye, and real talk here, that’s A LOT of dye! Just to show you how serious we are about custom screen printing, we present you with this photograph of The Dudettes hanging out in their free time. Notice the dedication in those faces,


3. We sculpt our guns at the office, AND at the gym
We know Ron Burgundy is a sexy beast. No one can deny that. But when it comes down to it, The Dudes can defeat a 3 headed mythological monster harnessing the powers of their Jewfros. Now just imagine what they can do for your T-shirts! Here are a couple more fun facts that contribute to our awesomeness: We’re not afraid to eat chicken of the cave for our post-workout protein. Our office smells of rich mahogany, which also obviously transfers over and becomes infused our deliciously scented T-shirts. Our poop smells like sandalwood, and whenever we print a T-shirt a unicorn high fives a T-rex in outer-space.

We would love to stay and enlighten you with more titillating tales of our adventures in life and screen printing, but unfortunately we need to sign off now. The powers of our awesomeness can only be confined to one place for so long. Others are in need of our magical talents and T-shirts. If you are however, dear reader, in need of the Duds by Dudes team shoot us an email. After all, all super teams have Iphones with instantly updating email access. Contact us at dudsbydudes@gmail.com, or www.dudsbydudes.com. As always, stay classy!

Custom Made T Shirts for Thanksgivukkah – Better than a Bib

In a unique alignment of calendars, the first day of Chanukah will fall on the same day as Thanksgiving this year: Nov. 28. Get ready for the greatest Jewish American mashup ever! Food + presents = awesome!

ImageWhy is Thanksgivukkah the best holiday of all time, you ask? Several reasons, first off this special holiday of food and lights only comes around once in a lifetime. The last time Thanksgivukkah happened was 125 years ago, in 1888. The next time Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will collide will be in the year 79811, assuming the Jewish calendar is not revised. So this is kind of a big deal. The second reason that Thanksgivukkah is deemed Duds by Dudes new favorite holiday is you can eat yourself into a stupor, then you will be rewarded for stuffing yourself with presents! With a custom created and rarely seen holiday like Thanksgivukkah there’s no better excuse to get custom made t shirts, personalized onesies, and custom embroidered colonial inspired pilgram kippot!

Custom made t shirts for Thanksgivukkah – Better than a bib

In celebration of this glorious day of union Duds by Dudes suggests screen printing shirts. You can wear them while shoving your face full of delicious Jewish inspired Thanksgiving foods. Don’t worry, our personalized t shirts are so superbly awesome that they will last the long haul, another 70,000 years, which is the next time this wondrous occurrence will commence. Just be sure to wash in cold water and dry on a cycle that wouldn’t qualify as light speed.


Time for some grubbin’!

Now onto the good stuff, FOOD! Duds by Dudes has put together a Thanksgivukkah menu to fill every belly. If you’ve been listening to us and got yourself custom made t shirts then go ahead and start slopping these delicious dishes all over yourself! We’re talking about getting super dirty here, cranberries in your hair, stuffing caught in your Movember beard and stache, just an overall smorgasbord of stains dripping down on those personalized t shirts. Make it your 100% cotton canvas with all the crap you spill. We want your chest to look like Jackson Pollack was invited to dinner. Fell free to use these recipes below to get the job done.

Pumpkin Challah – Adding pumpkin to challah bread is a sweet and spicy way to improve this already amazing doughy, eggy Jewish bread. It can be served before the meal as an appetizer to get stomachs stretched out for the impending feast. Side note: Pumpkin challah bread isn’t as messy as the rest of the meal, so it isn’t necessary at this point to have donned your t shirt bib. If you’re still warm and cozy hanging out in your personalized onesies then that’s absolutely fine.

Sweet potato noodle Kugel – This recipe combines the hybrid flavors of a sweet potato casserole with the heartiness of a crunchy noodle kugel. So if you’re ready for a super sweet flavor explosion of earthy, tart, custardy, spicy, nutty, and sweet then get this on it’s way to your gluttonous mouth hole immediately!

Manischewitz-Brined Roast Turkey – Alcohol-infused turkey? Yes and YES! We want this sweet wine soaked bird to get all over you. Is this the one and only appropriate time to actually want sloppy seconds?

Welp, that’s all we’ve got for now. Contact Duds by Dudes today to order your custom made t shirts, which can be used for a Thanksgivukkah bib, memorabilia of this special day, or just a plain ol’ dish rag if you really get into a bind after the meal. If you’re more in the market for personalized onesies, or custom embroidered pilgram kippot we’ve also got you covered.

Happy Thanksgivukkah everyone!

Ugly Holiday Sweater Party Time!

The holidays are sneaking up on us once again. One of Duds by Dudes favorite festivities of the season is the infamous Ugly Sweater Party, especially since we have the unique ability to use custom embroidery and expand upon any already existing ugly sweater. Throwing a wonderfully tacky sweater party is simple! All you need are party invitations, a festive banner, tacky decorations, festive food platters, a few games, and ugly sweaters to create an atmosphere full of holiday cheer!

Its time to gather up those awful woolly sweaters you have hiding in your closet and wear them with pride as you mix and mingle with friends and family at a festive ugly sweater party. If you aren’t already the proud owner of an ugly sweater then the best place to start looking is thrift stores. You gotta get a good sweater base to work with, and if you’re going to be the belle of the ball you might want to consider some custom embroidery on that beezy (more on this later). Really anything goes at this point, the scratchier, baggier, and moth ball smellier = the better the sweater. So be sure to really dig deep into those racks for those hidden sweater gems at the back.

Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 12.19.58 PM

If you actually want people to show up to your party you should send them an invitation. Otherwise you’re gonna get pretty snockered slurping down all that eggnog by yourself. You will definitely want to incorporate the theme into your ugly sweater party invitation. If you really want to wow people with your invitation use as much puce green paper as you can stand to look at and cut snowflakes until your fingers go numb. Since this party may involve some planning ahead for your guests, it important that you include the details about the ugly sweater party theme on your invitation. Include the name of the event, name of the host or hostess, date, time, location, and RSVP info. If you’re having others bring food, create your event on Punchbowl and then use the potluck tool to set up food assignments.  Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 12.31.27 PM

How do you decorate for a tacky holiday sweater party? With more sweaters, of course! You can use them as place mats underneath trays of food, table cloths, cut pieces to use as drink coasters, or just hang sweaters on a clothesline as a modified holiday garland. Another idea is to display awkward or embarrassing old family photos from holidays past. Have a good laugh looking at old fashions and uncomfortable, forced poses. What big and awesome party would be complete without a banner hanging from the fireplace with care? Duds by Dudes can print you up a delightfully tacky banner lickety–split with images of obnoxious candy canes, multi-colored lights, or ugly stockings. Just get crazy. Deck the house (and the halls) with these wild decorations and banners. The more outrageous and gaudier the better. Decorate with themes from famously funny Christmas movies.  The “leg lamp” from a Christmas Story is always great. Try to decorate the main room with enough lights to make Clark Griswold happy. Your friends will love it.

Have disposable cameras sprinkled around the room. You’ll thank us next June when you finally get them developed. Bake cookies in the shape of sweaters or make gingerbread men and decorate them with colorful icing in crazy patterns like polka dots or stripes. Another traditionally “tacky” food for an ugly sweater party is fruitcake, although there are many delicious recipes available now so don’t go poisoning anyone. You can also serve brightly colored drinks to match the garish, festive colors of your ugly sweaters. What party would be complete without games? Duds by Dudes‘ parties always include:

Christmas Movie Line Trivia – Have some Christmas movie lines ready to quiz the party goers on what movie it is from.  Give extra prizes if they can name the character and the actor!
Scavenger Hunt – These are classic and always fun. Really explore the space.
Custom made photo booth – Check out our Pinterest page for ideas on how to make a photo booth.

If you find yourself wanting to make your ugly sweater even uglier then Duds by Dudes has just the solution to your problem! We do custom embroidery that is so good it’ll knock those candy cane socks right off your feet. You can use our custom embroidery skills to secure sequins, ribbons, fuzzy pom pom balls, and anything that would make your sweater even uglier! Want to throw a reindeer on the front that looks like it’s been squished by a sleigh? We will overlook the fact that you’re a twisted individual and our custom embroidery experts will make that happen for you. Just look at this satisfied customer,

Have a safe and fun holiday season Dudes and Dudettes!

What Your Dog’s Halloween Costume Says About You

With national sugar high day (AKA Halloween) approaching we thought we would give a shout out to our furry friends. There is no doubt that a dog is man’s best friend; a companion who will always be faithful to your life. It is therefore logical that any dog owner would want to get the best for their most cherished companion.  You therefore have to take good care of your best friend just like you will do to yourself and any other human who matters to you.  Since you dress yourself to look sassy and fashionable, to protect yourself and fit into the trendy crowd, you also need to dress your pet with the same degree of consideration.  Today, you are able to achieve this through the use of designer dog clothes such as the Yoda Dog Costume.

ImageThe real essence of dogs outfits – Dog Halloween Costumes

If you want your dog to look fashionable during the animated and rather adventurous Halloween holidays, some Dog Halloween Costumes would fit in perfectly.  It really does not matter which season of the year the Halloween season comes but in any case, you have got all you need to make it memorable; this is both for you and for your best friend.  Your dog can look very fashionable with some parsley from your garden and then BOOM, instant Chia Pet.

ImageAs much as the aspect of you and your dog adorning the same kind of an outfit might look rather comical and silly, this is a modern trend that has been growing in popularity over the past couple of years.  This trend has diversified dog clothes designs and as such, people are getting to appreciate the fact that dogs are actually something more than mere accessories. They are living creatures that have to be treated with dignity and honor owning to the fact that they play a very important role in life.

The Benefits of Dressing Your Dog with Costumes

There is no doubt that every dog has got some degree of a distinct personality. This can be easily implied or reflected by clothing it in some sassy t-shirt or even an entire outfit.  As per modern trends, it seems like most taco costume, pirate costume and dinosaur costume and other costume manufacturers are more inclined towards smaller breed dogs. However, larger breeds can also benefit largely.  Today, if you do your research right, you will come across a wide range of dog clothes in the market. This includes outfits created for special occasions such as Christmas, Halloween and even for Weddings. Take note of the fact that modern clothes are much easier to fit since they are designed for specific breeds of dogs.


ImageImageDemerits of Clothing Your Pets

Just like there are many benefits of dressing your dog, so are the demerits. One thing you need to understand is that not all dog breeds feel comfortable adorning the pirate costume, taco costume, dinosaur costume or any other type of costumes out there in the market.  Some materials used in designing these outfits are prone to allergens and other disease causing elements. They might also not offer adequate aeration and therefore, proper choices ought to be made.  Much as you might be interested in making your dog look and feel fashionable, you also need to consider its comfort.


Whether you are buying the Yoda Dog Costume or other Dog Halloween costumes, you need to understand that dog breeds are quite different.  When you are buying clothes for your dog, you have to consider its size and the amount of fur on its body so as to ensure that the clothes are comfortable and guarantee a high level or protection.  The dog clothes which you will come across in the market today are the one-size fits all kind of thing.  Again, the thickness and padding of the material is not always meant for all breeds.  In that case therefore, when you are buying clothes or costumes for your dog, you have to consider a number of factors, comfort of course being the main one. So just please be aware that no matter what your plans are for this Halloween season, your furry friend will also be having fun. Make sure they look snazzy doing it!

It’s Football Time!!

 It’s football time again, baby! What this means is that you’ll get to watch athletes of all ages, from pop warner to the NFL, enjoy the sport that Americans call their own. When you want to show your support for your Youth football star, make sure that you do everything that you can to get a custom jersey with their name on it. Your child or other player you are supporting will feel proud knowing that you care enough about them to wear their jersey number and name while rooting them on to that victory. 

Since football is back, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of hard hitting action, filled with first downs, touchdowns, deep ball passes and runs right up the gut. The better prepared you are to root for your team, the more festive the event will be when you show up to the game, ready for victory. You can purchase custom jerseys for the people in your cheering section that will allow you to enjoy every second of the game. When you want to make sure that you are ready prior to the opening kickoff, stock up on all of the jerseys you need by ordering from Duds by Dudes. The Dudes will take down your sizes, numbers, color schemes and all other jersey information, so that you can get the custom jersey that you need to truly make an impression when you show up to the game. The ordering process is simple and easy with our San Diego based company, and we will make sure that we don’t finish the job until it is done the right way. All of our jerseys are well put together, with great material that you’re able to use for a jersey that looks great and is comfortable. 

The beauty of this process is that you are able to get a jersey delivered to you quickly and convenient, made the exact way that you want it. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy the jersey before the first game, and can wear it to each and every game as your team travels and gathers those wins. You can also purchase home and away jersey schemes, so that you are able to mix and  match for different occasions as you support your young athlete. You’ll be able to outfit your family members with everything that they need to show their school spirit. 

The downside ot purchasing these jerseys is that young kids move up in sports so quickly and will be on a diffrent team before you know it. However, this is a wonderful keepsake that you can have once they have moved up to the next level, especially if the team wins a championship that year. If the team happens to win it all, you could get all of the coaches and players to sign the jersey for you, so that you can hang it in a glass case and retire it, and move on to the next jersey!

When it comes down to it, football is a wonderful sport that is enjoyed by many every single year. It has gotten to the point that it is a year round indulgence, as the draft garners a high level of attention, as do the spring practices in college football. By the time summer time rolls around, forget about it! Teams are in full swing with training camps and chomping at the bit, looking forward to what the season holds. Either way, you can’t go wrong by purchasing a custom jersey that corresponds with your favorite player. 

Make sure that you do everything that you can to order these jerseys when you are getting ready for a brand new season. This will help you to root your favorite squad on to victory, as you get ready for what the new season will bring. These jerseys will be a great start if you are looking forward to supporting your favorite pop warner Youth football team, so make sure you stock up or the family, and spread the word! Other parents will want to find out where you got your jerseys, so leave it to Duds by Dudes

4 Do’s of Rushing a Fraternity.

If you’re entrenched in the Greek system you already know that there are several off limits topics for Sororities to talk about during rush. Dudettes are always told to stay away from the 4 B’s: boys, booze, bank accounts, and Bibles. Sorority dudettes must avoid those topics at all costs when rushing new pledges! Fraternities though are whole different ballgame. In our last blog post we explored the PC ways of Sorority rush. Listed below are the differences in these 4 conversation topics when rushing a Fraternity.


In a sorority it’s definitely a faux pas to talk about boys, but if you’re a dude then it’s absolutely encouraged to talk about your bros! Duds by Dudes recommends bragging about your boys to these new Fraternity dudes. Here’s the thing, we already know you’re a cool dude, and you probably did some really weird and awesome stuff with your boys back home before coming to college. Chances are you’re going to be making a whole slew new memories with these dudes, but that’s no reason to neglect all those Tucker Max inspired tales of shenanigans you’ve already experienced. Let the storytelling begin!


If you’re rushing a sorority this is definitely a 100% off limits topic to talk about… Good thing you’re not a little sissy girl! Now get in there and take a shot of JD to the dome! Shotgun a beer if you’re not a hard liquor fan. You’re rushing a fraternity! If you aren’t standing within at least 20 feet of a beer bong at all times then evacuate that building immediately! Now we feel that it needs to be mentioned that Duds by Dudes does NOT condone drinking to the point where you’re likely to hurt yourself or others. Seriously. Don’t do that. Another thing you should never do is text your ex-girlfriend. In that psych 101 class you’re going to be taking you’ll learn that alcohol cuts off the part of your brain that makes rational decisions. That’s going to be showing up on the midterm so you better remember it. If you’re really itching to call someone after knocking a few back be sure to have the phone number for a late night delivery joint on speed dial.  That’s just a win-win for everyone involved.


No one wants to hang out with that guy who goes around bragging about how fat his bank account is. However; you may increase the size of your own bank account by placing side-bets with your fellow pledge class bros. This is a stealth maneuver that if done correctly can bump up those bank account bucks by a bundle! Side-bets can be placed on anything, really. Need some side-bet inspiration? It’s football season, Bet on the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning Superbowl coach. Or maybe an over/under on how many times Brett Favre, Tim Tebow, or Peyton Manning are mentioned in a Sunday.


If by Bible this topic is referring to The BRO CODE then we’re on the right track. The BRO CODE should be upheld by all Fraternity members at all times. No exceptions. The BRO CODE is a living document, much like the Constitution. Except instead of outlining a government, or the Bill of Rights, or anything even resembling laws, the BRO CODE provides men with all the rules they need to know in order to become a bro and behave properly among other bros.  Dating back to the American Revolution and containing approximately 150 unspoken rules, this code of conduct for bros can range from the simple (bros before hos) to the complex (the hot-to-crazy ratio, complete with bar graphs and charts). With helpful sidebros the BRO CODE will help any new fraternity guy become the best bro he can be. Let us impart these last words of wisdom upon you, you will be meeting a whole lot of new bros when rushing a fraternity. Shown below are the proper and improper greeting techniques for maximum impact.

Sorority Recruitment

With sorority recruitment right around the corner Duds by Dudes wanted to offer our faithful readers a few tips and tricks to making it through unscathed. The Dudette is an AXO alumni and The Dudes have been known to frequent a frat house or two, so we quasi know what we’re talking about… Although this blog post is solely for the ladies. Next week we will scribble some words for our fine gentleman readers.

Throughout recruitment, you might hear bits of hearsay about certain chapters or individual chapter members. Talking unfavorably of a chapter, chapter member, or potential new member could influence somebody’s recruitment experience and perhaps harming somebody’s emotions. Your concern as a potential new member ought to be looking into those chapters in which you are generally intrigued. If you experience any negative remarks or conduct from active members or other potential new members, do not waver to report it. This is because potential new member should administer inquiries and concerns to their Recruitment Guide.

Formal sorority recruitment starts the week before the fall semester commence. Every day, you will go to recruitment events at different sorority houses, meeting women from every chapter and discovering the chapter in which you could best see yourself. As the week advances, you will go to fewer events for a more drawn out period at each one, giving you the chance to confine your decisions and give more time to the chapters with which you feel the strongest association. The chapters, in turn, will be partaking in this joint choice process and searching for the women who best typify their own particular Greek apparel. Your Recruitment Guide will help you all through the week in knowing where to head off and what to anticipate. She will additionally serve as a guide or compatriot if you have any inquiries or worries about the sorority apparel to wear. Your Recruitment Guide will be answerable for a recruitment group made out of different young women on your floor who are additionally taking part in sorority recruitment. These groups are a fabulous approach to meet and bond with your new neighbors and get back in your first week at college. These customs will furnish you with tips and insight to determine that your sorority recruitment is an extraordinary experience.

Do ask questions. By making inquiries, you will grasp what the qualities of the organization are. Do be trustworthy with yourself by keeping an open personality all through the week, and be in touch with your senses. In addition, do meet everyone you can. This is to the fact that you never know who will end up living in your dormitory lobby, sitting adjacent in your science lab, or partaking in your pledge class. Do get more than enough sleep and eat healthy meal. This is because recruitment days are long and require lots of enthusiasm.

The discussion you have throughout recruitment might as well attach once more to you or the sorority. In connection to that,do not discuss boys or parties in a conversation.  Moreover, do not hold grudge or blame when the organization transfers you from a house. This is to the fact that the way a sorority can bid on a woman varies for every organization, school, and chapter. Do not reject a house dependent upon what you have heard from other individuals. Some opinions you are receiving about a sorority’s reputation may be biased or outdated. Do not accept everything you see on TV or films about Greek life. The TV show makes it appear as though each sorority is at war with one another and each woman in a sorority will cut you in the back the first chance they get. Do not wear lots of clanging greek clothing or an excessive amount of rings. This is because numerous rings will get uncomfortable in recruitment, and an excessive amount of sorority apparel might be distracting.

A recruitment occasion is a period for prospective members to study more about distinct chapters and for chapter member to study more about potential new member. Potential new members will meet with and converse with different members of the chapters, research the chapters’ qualities, scholastics, and governing sorority recruitment body, and tour the houses. Potential new members should remember that sorority recruitment is a joint selection process. In the same way that you are attempting to speak to yourself to the members, so are the actives attempting to depict an ideal picture of their chapters to the potential new member!
