be strong

Clingspiration is now on Zazzle!

I discovered that a couple of people stole my original Be Strong design and are selling shirts on Zazzle. These thieves simply took the image from this site, taking out the watermark. Morality aside, this is not good because the preview image posted on this site is low resolution with a white background – so the image will be blurry when printed large, and on dark apparel, will have an ugly white box surrounding the design.

I have already reported the infringing items to Zazzle, so hopefully they can take those down.

But this incident inspired me to open up my own Zazzle shop. Since I am the original designer, I have the original high resolution image files. They will print nice and crisp even on large posters, and will look great on dark clothing. I will be adding different types of merchandise (greeting cards, posters, bags etc) to Zazzle, so please keep an eye on my Zazzle store!

Inspirational Quote | Be Strong

I am pleased to offer Clingspiration’s first inspirational quote design. As seen on the image above, the quote reads

Be strong when you are weak, brave when you are scared, and humble when you are victorious.

This is my favorite inspirational quote, so I had to put it on a shirt/poster. When I’m feeling down or scared, these are the words I try to repeat to myself. The paradoxical prose reminds us that it’s not when life is swell that we need to be strong. Rather, we need our strength precisely at those moments we feel powerless. By digging deep and facing our fears we can achieve victory. And when we succeed, we mustn’t forget our past trials, and be understanding of those who continue to struggle.

I searched, but couldn’t find who said this inspirational quote. If anyone knows, please let me know in the comments!

The Be Strong inspirational quote design can be purchased on a t-shirt at our eCrater Store. The design is also available as a print.

For a greater variety of garment colors and worldwide shipping, the shirt is also available at our OnlineShirtStores Shop.

NEW 04/09/2013: We have just opened a store on Zazzle! Zazzle has a wide variety of merchandise. This design is available on posters, greeting cards and more!
