    Weeeeee-eeeee! are finally able to tell you about our collaboration that we have kept secret for a few months....

    So for those of you who have been following us, we have been meeting up with Free Vancity, a local organization that actively promotes free upcoming events or happenings around Vancouver. In conjunction to their startup funding project, we have collaborated with them to provide our services and swag that sponsors could potentially win (based on a tiering system).

    For more information on how you too can haz this, visit Free Vancity. 

    Here's the final design on a tee. Photo taken from FreeVancity.

    In addition to this awesome tee, we have also included prize packages that include... cards, laptop stickers, and... a free consultation from TWOANDTEE for your very own tee + other customizable swag! 

    Don't miss out on this! Leave a comment below and let us know what you think of it! 

    And yes, we have been creating and testing out laptop stickers! Brace yourselves for fantastic decals that will definitely make your friendships jelly. But hey, why not spread the love and get 'em some too : ) PLUS Christmas is just around the corner...and we smell.... a giveaway! Because we can. 

    Stay tuned for exciting news soon, and #spreadtheswag!

    MAKE IT SHOW - The Vancouver Edition

    Before we begin, we'd like to remember those who have fallen for us to protect our country. #lestweforget #remembranceday

    Super exciting stuff in this week's blog post!! We finally visited Make It Vancouver this year! The event was great, lots of people, creative goodies er'where. Here are some photos of the event!

    Located at Croation Cultural Centre in Vancouver. A couple of blocks away from the skytrain station. It was pretty sunny, but mad chilly. Looks like winter is making an early visit this year... Forgot to bring a scarf, was freezing. Luckily the event was held indoors!

    Bought our tickets at the door, $4 for early bird. One time purchase that can be used from Friday to Sunday! Andddd if you keep the ticket, you can redeem a 2 for 1 ticket for the next event. Sweet!

    One of the three halls set up for the event. Tons of people, as you can see. This is just one of the many aisles. Most of the vendors sold jewellery and food. 

    Stopped by to check out awesome work by the talented Gabe Wong, selling calendar and prints (of Canadian animals drawn by him), and these super cute paper men! Reminds me of cubeecraft! Interested in his work, email him at 

    These derp lookin' monsters are toooo adorable! Just look at their faces... and teeth. They're super soft. Some of them even have small sections of fabric (which I assume them to be organs) coming out of their mouth. Dolls were selling for $50+ and up!

    Next find was cabin+cub. I immediately recognized the "Hello Sunshine" brooch from Paperya in Granville Island. Such a pretty design. Fell in love with it all over again. She had tiny bamboo earrings in shapes of squirrels, clouds, and birds. So cute! I wanted to buy them all.

    Walked by this vendor with super cute card designs. They also had assorted mini mini cards for $1 each. How cute is this reindeer one?! Haha. Check out their website here: note+emote.

    Photo from TheTinyFig

    We also dropped by The Tiny Fig to check out her cute creations. I personally have three pairs of earrings from her, all super adorable and of great quality. If you missed this booth, they will be at another upcoming event, Got Craft on Dec 8-9. We are sad to hear your passing, Connie. Thank you for sharing your lovely work with the rest of the world.

    Soap in shapes of bones and guns, anyone? Pretty cool vendor with bad-ass jewellery (in the background).

    Annnnnd I HAD to stop by Kawaii Eats to check out her ADORABLE mameshiba macarons. Sooo cute!! Visit her website for more kawaii nommmsss.

    A map with the list of vendors and a prize draw. 

    Some business cards that I've collected. And here are my purchases of the day!

    Saw many people carrying stones with cactus plants in them. I've always wanted one, and so, yes, I got one. The small ones like these were $15. Felt kinda ripped off... and the seller quickly placed it in the bag while I was asking him questions. Was somewhat annoyed and almost didn't want to buy it anymore. Named it after the Pokemon, Bulbasaur *U*. Only after I came home did I learn that cactus plants aren't good for fengshui.. Hmm.. oh well!
    Also bought an Animal wristlet keychain from Noei. Also recognized her products from Paperya. Had such a hard time choosing which design to buy.. they were all so whimsical and cute!

    Had a great time overall at Make It Vancouver. Will definitely have to look into getting a booth for TWOANDTEE for the next few events and to be a part of the huge creative, crafty community.

    Annnnd to finish off, here's a doodle of the week featuring Jake, the dog from Adventure Timmeeeeee

    And here's a WIP of a digital form haha. Obsessed? Naw, what are you talking about... 

    For your reference, here's where the inspiration started haha. Warning: it'd be stuck in your head for a few days. You're welcome.

    Move it for Movemeber

    Helloooooo everyone!!

    Happy Movemeber Month! Question for you, do YOU know why it's called Movember? No, it's not just people keepin' a 'stache and showing it off... well, partially haha. Behind this 'stache growing competition is a movement to bring awareness in support of men's health issues like prostate cancer and mental illness across Canada.

    Have you checked out our 'stached out homepage and webstore? I think we rock it pretty well, if I were to say so myself.

    GUESS WHAT WE HAZ?? That's right, business cards! They look sao sexay, we can die.

    We will be checking out the annual Make it Vancouver fair this year! Super stoked as it's our first time evar. Will you be there? Come find us and say hi!

    photo from the Make It Vancouver fair website. looks soooo osum *3*

    Here's a quirky guide for different types of 'staches via Design Taxi: If Fonts Wore Mustaches. What kind of moustache will you be rockin' this month?

    We just might have a mini contest coming up soon, it may or may not involve a photo of you and your stache, fake or real. So stay tuned and start keeping your 'staches!

    Falling into Fall

    Brrrrrrr!! It's freezing cold these couple of days. The rain didn't make it any better. I guess it's time to welcome Fall! Hope you all stay cozy and warm!

    For our second collection, we have decided to work on it slowly, carefully planning out each process. Thanks for being patient! I promise you won't be disappointed! 

    Have a custom design in mind? We are now taking orders for custom shirts! Email us at for more information!

    To end off our super short post, here's a mini video of the troublesome two.

    Revisiting Our Past

    Hello there sunshine! Such beautiful weather before school starts next week. Hope everyone's enjoying the long weekend! 

    Team TWOANDTEE met up yesterday with a sole purpose to brainstorm and finalize swagtastic stuff. We are proud to say that it's more or less set in stone. Nothing short of awesome fo sho. Lots of work up ahead for us at full speed so stay tuned for updates in the near future!

    Soooo what have we been doing over the past few weeks? Let's just say we had several meetings with FreeVancity, a local company updating news on anything 'free' in Vancouver. Prepare yourselves for swagged out goodies realllll soon! 

    We also dropped some tees for *United, another local startup company that aims to unite talents across Vancouver and help increase exposure through videos and such. Check out their videos and updates on their Facebook page! Look out for our tees in their latest video! 

    Over the weekend, our household has acquired a new paper shredder! Easily amused, I started clearing out old notes to shred and stumbled upon this...

    Remember our past post about the history of TWOANDTEE? If you don't remember, shame on you... just kidding! Check out the link to learn more about it! You might also want to refresh your memory for a mini contest in the near future.... ahem*

    Who says hand drawn cards are old school? Just keepin' it real yo. One of a kind cards are the best. Speaking of "one of a kind"... any kpop lovers out there? Check out GDragon's latest MV. So much swag I don't even. Alright! See you all next week ^^

    Overdue Update & Future Swag

    Why hello there! Thanks for dropping by!

    Sorry for the lack of updates. It's been a busy busy few weeks for the two Tees. Lots of awesome things and swags coming up in the near future. We're both super excited! Be sure to look out for our random appearances.. muahaha

    What did you guys do this weekend? I was attending to a booth at a local market. There were lots of tables selling random items and past treasures waiting to be rediscovered. While walking around the booths, I stumbled upon a rare find. It was a Polaroid Sun 660. I just HAD to get it. Despite the discontinued production of polaroid films, it makes a unique decoration/prop. The lady was nice and sold it to me for half the price. It was an epic steal. 

    Summer is almost coming to an end. You know what that means.. back to school for some of us! What are your plans for the last few days? 

    Decided to doodle on my arms instead of a weekly doodle for a change! Change is always good. Wish my bones could change into these neon-like ones instead. Heh.

    The Sweet Life

    Ohai fellow TWOANDTEE-ers!

    Happy Pride Weekend and Happy (early) BC Day! Wish we were down at the beach last night, heard the fireworks for Italy was fantastic.

    Hope you're all doing well. Both of us have been mad busy this week, so not much to update (for now). We managed to meet up this week to work on some secret stuff. Can't wait to share it with all of you!

    Check out Justin from AX3 swaggin' our Panda Menu tee, featuring le bunny. So much swag I don't even.

    Randomly crafted up a mini Panda Egg plush. Completed within two days! Woop. What do you guys think? Would you buy it (obviously it'll look more beautiful than this hahah).

    To celebrate Pride week, I'll share with you one of my recent favourite song by Frank Ocean called "Sweet Life".

    Aaaannnnd of course, our weekly doodle of what happened to me this morning, true story! I wonder who's the chocolate thief..

    What are all your plans for this sunny weekend?

    Let the Games Begin & Customized Goodies

    Happy Sunday everyone!

    Can't believe the week has gone by so fast! Team TWO&TEE have been preoccupied with upcoming opportunities, projects, and top secret stuff.

    And so the Olympic Games of 2012 has begun! Go team Canada! Tee enjoys watching the swimming, cycling, and gymnastics event. What are your favourite events?

    We are happy to announce that custom orders for cards will be available soon! Custom orders for tees will be available shortly after.

    Here's a sneak peek of our first custom order for Fab. The order included 20 customized birthday cards and 4 thank you cards. What better way to personalize your cards by having them uniquely yours!

    Sunday, July 15, 2012


    We often get asked the question "why did you name your brand/company TWO&TEE?"

    What better way to answer that question once and for all than to use this week's blog entry as an opportunity to share with you guys the story behind the name.

    To properly and accurately answer that question, we'd have to go all the way back to the summer of 2009. At that time we were two complete strangers who were randomly paired together for a design assignment. (Random side note: Theresa's first impression of me was "Oh sweet baby Jesus I hope he speaks English" because well... apparently my style then was "SUPER ASIAN" with super "crazy blonde spiky" hair).

    The premise behind the design assignment was to carry out and execute a full scale branding and packaging design project. We had to design & create everything from the logo to business cards & letter heads to the actual packaging of the product for our mock company.

    In short, we went with our "t-shirts rolled up and stuffed in a cake icing can" idea and being the punny individuals that we are, we decided to call it Cake & Tee.

    Mixing It Up

    Happy Sunday er'one! Something strange have been happening in Raincouver Vancouver this past week... us Vancouverites have been fortunate enough to experience some extremely beautiful & sunny weather within the last few days! Dare we say that we might actually get to experience a real summer this year?! Haha let's hope the rest of July and August will be more or less the same.

    It's that time of the week again... yup our weekly blog update! Team TWO&TEE is of course hard at work (although we try to steal some sunshine here and there) but unfortunately we don't have a lot of pictures to share this week since most (if not all) of the items on our agenda needs to be kept top secret.

    On the flip side, we do have something rather exciting to share with all of you! Our friend DJ Froto created a special little mix (song choices were all very fitting of TWO&TEE if we do say so ourselves haha) for a mixing contest and one of our tees made a special guest appearance in the video :)

    Check out the video below and if you can, show him some love by liking the video and subscribing to his channel :)

    Happy Birthday, CANADA!

    Wow, it's July 1st already! Do I see sunshine?.. summer, is that you? A huge Happy Birthday shout out to the CANADA, Land Of The Free! There are tons of festivities and scheduled fireworks all night! Hurrah for long weekends, perfect time to chill, catch up, and relax with your friends and family. What are your plans for today?

    So.. this week has been a quiet week for the both of us. One TEE was busy preppin' for her killer midterm, while the other one was busy working away at Project Top-secret-swag-stuff. What is that, you ask? Well, you'll just have to wait and find out, hehe! We also have several collaborations coming up! Very exciting stuff to be released soon along with another AWESOME contest! Please stay tuned!

    Team TWO&TEE meet up almost every week to work and plan for our future collections & swags. Here's our Insta-week to show you all what we've been up... mmhmmm... tons of "hard work" haha! So, we apparently found some new mascots, meet Milo and Toffee! Joking about the mascots part... or not... maybe... Prepare to die from cuteness overload after the jump! You have been warned:

    TWOANDTEE's Insta-Week (One)

    Well it's official folks! Summer is officially here! Even though it's a norm for us "Raincouverites", heavy downpour of rain is no way to welcome this awesome season with open arms. Hopefully we'll be able to experience a real summer this year in Vancouver :)

    If you're following us on Twitter then you'd know that we've been keeping busy this week with prepping our swags for our awesome 20ers. As a recap, here's our INSTA-WEEK:

    Some people like to wear their heart on their sleeve but we like to wear our swag on our sleeve instead :)

    Shop TWO&TEE

    Ohai thurrr!

    Sorry for the long wait and a huge huge HUGE thank you to all of you for being so patient with us these past few weeks! Between the two of us, we had no clue how to set up and program an e-commerce web store so it was definitely a learn-as-we-went process, which is also why it took us longer than we had originally anticipated.

    Regardless, we knew that we wanted to do it ourselves and not outsource it to a third party or host our store on one of the many, widely available e-merchant services. Sure it would've made our lives a lot easier but TWO&TEE is our baby and we want to do it our way... even if it means not sleeping for a day or two and flipping over several tables in the process.

    All the work we've put into this store is for no one else other than all of our TEE-rrific customers & supporters :)

    Without further ado, we present to you, the TWO&TEE Official Web Store featuring our two very sexy models @shum_bum1210 & @aldricht. Show them some love by spamming and telling them what sexy beasts they are haha.

    Giveaway Winner...s? + Tee-asers!!

    As promised we will be announcing the winner of our Limited Edition TWO&TEE Unicorn t-shirt in this blog entry. Thank you to all of those who've entered and helped us spread the love and swag of TWO&TEE. Both of us had a hard time choosing a winner but after days of going back and forth we unanimously agreed on the winner...S :)

    But before we get into that... instead of our weekly doodle this time, we'd thought that we'd tee-ase your eyes a little bit with some of the pictures from our first collection photoshoot with our two sexay models, the always mad cute, @shum_bum1210, and the king of swag, @aldricht. We honestly couldn't have asked for two better, more awesome and amazing people to spend the day with. Never a dull moment with these two! Haha
