The A Very Long Time Ago tee design is a family portrait featuring Yoda and an Ewok as the Father and mother and Gizmo as their son.

The A Very Long Time Ago tee design is for Star Wars and Gremlins fans.

This concept is effing hilarious and clever. If you have ever wondered what the love child of Yoda and an Ewok would look like, this is it. Whether you wanted to think about that or not. But that is not the funniest or even most disturbing part. Check out how creepy Yoda looks with his bulging eyes and old man pipe. It's like viewing one of those post-mortem photos. Add all of those elements together and behold, one of the greatest pop culture tees of all time. If this tee looks familiar, it is because the design used to be sold at Threadless... (Also) a long time ago.

As for the artwork, it is drawn in a cartoon style that is made up to look like an old early photograph from the Victorian Era. Think Conté Crayons on cardboard. The shading and highlights are superb. The facial expressions are on par with damn near all the old time portraits. Probably because people had to be still for a long time for the photographic plates to be exposed. At first, it took roughly 15 minutes. Then just a couple years later it was down to a couple of minutes. Which is still a long time to have to strike a pose. That and people back then were ashamed of their teeth due to the lack of dental care and hygiene. Either way, Vintz nailed it.

This tee is for any Star Wars and Gremlins fans or at least of the cute Mogwai form.

Wear this tee everywhere that tees are appropriate. It would make a great conversation starter at Comic-Cons and Sci-Fi conventions.

A Very Long Time Ago Tee Design by Vintz.

Is available on T-shirts, Hoodies, Long Sleeves, Sweatshirts and Dog T-shirts. Dark Chocolate fabric color is mandatory for tees, Black for Sweatshirts. Dark Chocolate is a good choice because it gives the design the nostalgic Sepia photo appearance. The review breakdown is as follows:

Bottom Line

The products and retailer Neatoshop are definitely high quality with a better price than most of the other Print On Demand services ($15.95 – $19.95 range for Tees, $29.95 for Long Sleeves, $45-50 for Hoodies). Most of the designs can be found elsewhere but the color and print quality will be weak in comparison. The brand of blanks that they use are Hanes and Next Level from the samples that I’ve seen, they have others depending on the color and style. It is nice to have fabric color options as each design usually has a few choices to choose from, so that is a major plus. There are plenty of sizes and styles as well. As for the printing method, they use the Digital Print or Direct To Garment (DTG) technique. Their methods with their printer are as close as possible to the traditional Screen Printed results. This means that their ink is laid on thick and their ink colors are bold and not muted like it is at most of their Print On Demand competitors. That is a big deal so the print method gets a 5 star rating, especially when taking the price into consideration. We feel that this A Very Long Time Ago Tee is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
