Share Article

Crooked Brook is printing the t-shirts for Chef Christopher Daly’s HipSnacks and Hip4kids initiatives. Both programs raise awareness about the risks of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes, in addition to promoting healthy eating habits for children and their families.

Executive Chef/Culinary Educator and founder of the company HipSnacks Christopher Daly, has chosen Crooked Brook to print the t-shirts for his HipSnacks and Hip4kids initiatives. Both programs raise awareness about the risks of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes, in addition to promoting healthy eating habits for children and their families. Chef Daly will be in the public eye regularly in the near future promoting his company’s newest creation the “Chocolate HIP Cookie.”

Using the Direct to Garment Printing (DTG) technology, Crooked Brook will print two different custom t-shirts styles for HipSnacks promotions. The first is an Anvil tank top, style #815, made from 100% preshrunk heavyweight cotton in Azalea Pink, with double-needle stitching on the bottom hem and ribbed binding on and around the neck and armholes.

The second t-shirt is a Baby Blue Gildan Crew style G200 Ultra Cotton® T-Shirt made from 100% preshrunk cotton with a seamless collar and double-needle stitching throughout.

Both t-shirts will have a large Hipsnacks full-color logo on the center front and a large QR code on the center back in a color that is tonal to the t-shirt color. Having the QR code printed on to the shirt is a creative way to enable smart phone users to immediately link to the HipSnacks website to learn more information about the company and its mission and to access special offers or coupons.
