The I Want To Be A Leaf tee design features a Firefly parody of the I Want To Believe poster.

TheĀ I Want To Be A Leaf tee design is for Sci-Fi fans that enjoy Firefly and the X-Files.

The concept of this design is based on the beloved spaceship Serenity from Firefly as well as Wash's "I am a leaf in the wind watch how I soar" quote and the iconic poster "I Want To Believe" that could be seen in "Spooky" Fox Mulder's F.B.I. office. It is also the title of the second feature film installment of the X-Files franchise. It is clever and a must have for devout Firefly fans.

As for the artwork, it stays true to the I Want To Believe poster style. Decent coloring for a cartoon atmospheric effect. There is also a slight distressed effect.

The people that enjoy Firefly, the Browncoats, will relate to this tee on at least two different levels. First, they want to soar like a leaf and second they want to believe that there will be more Firefly episodes.

This is a good Firefly tribute tee with the layered meanings as well as a worthy nod to the X-Files franchise. It is one of the best mash ups and it actually makes sense.

The Tri-Black tee itself is rather comfortable. But the printed colors are muted and do not quite match the website's thumbnails.

Bottom Line

The products and retailer Society6 are definitely high quality with a average price on par with most of the other Print On Demand services ($22.00 for DTG printed Tees and Women’s Tank Tops- $34 for Sublimated All Over Print Tees, $28.00 for Long Sleeves, $24 for Women’s V-Necks, $28 for Biker Tanks, $42 for Hoodies).

A lot of the designs can be found elsewhere and just as many or more are exclusive at the moment. The color and print quality for Direct to Garment printed items are above average and the Sublimated printed tees are Superb.

The brand of blanks that they use are American Apparel (100% Cotton/Tri-Blends 50% polyester / 25% cotton / 25% rayon) for the DTG T-shirts, Long Sleeve T-shirts, V-Necks, Tank Tops. American Apparel (100% Polyester) for the Sublimated All Over Print Tees. Their hoodies are also made by American Apparel (100% California Fleece cotton and the Heather Grey hoodies contain 90% cotton / 10% California Fleece Cotton). The Biker Tanks (100% Cotton) are exclusive.

It is nice to have fabric color options for the DTG prints as each design usually has a few choices to choose from, so that is a major plus. What You See Is What You Get for the All Over Print tees as the fabric is always White which is then dyed with the design itself.

Their size range is rather limited so the Big and Tall and Plus Sized people will miss out on some great designs.

As for the printing methods, they use the Digital Print or Direct To Garment (DTG) technique for the regular printed tees and the Sublimated technique for the All Over Print shirts. Their DTG prints are better than most (but not all) Print on Demand brands (4 out of 5 stars for print quality). Which places them in TeeFetch’s Top 5 for P.O.D. companies in regards to Print Quality. There ink is laid on with an industry average thickness and their ink colors are less muted than most of their Print On Demand competitors. Their Sublimated printed shirts are even better so much so that they are PERFECT for ink/dye coverage and color (5 out of 5 stars for print quality).

We feel that this DTG printed I Want To Be A Leaf is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
