Nicole, aka My T-Shirt Lady

Posted on August 25, 2021 by under Life.    

It was around this time last year when I first got connected with Nicole. She owns Simply Charming Designs. I would not have known about her had it not been for the amazing work that she did on Ben Meyer and Traci Grandfield’s league uniforms. They had Ben’s company logo put on their tops and bottoms. As someone who is obsessed with being “matchy matchy,” I immediately had outfit envy. I asked Ben who did it for him and asked for their contact information.

That was the start of my relationship with Nicole. Over the past year she’s completed several shirt projects for me. I’ve even referred several people her way including my friends Karen, Tiffany, and Kimberly (and probably a few others). I know Seth has gotten a few shirts from her also. Every time someone asks me about customizing shirts or adding prints or logos on them, I send them to Nicole.

The funny thing is, as I’m referring all of these people her way, we’d never actually met in person — that is, until recently. My friends always asked, how are you getting your stuff? I told them we usually just leave my shirts on her porch and then I pick them up the same way when they’re finished. Payment is through Venmo, so we’ve never seen each other. She’s usually not home when I’m dropping off or picking up (actually, it’s usually Brian dropping off or picking up because he works on that side of town), but she doesn’t have to be. I’ve never felt it necessary to meet her to do business together. All I know is that she does excellent work and she is quick and that is good enough for me.

Anyway, Kimberly had some shirts done a few months ago and actually got to meet Nicole. Of course I felt FOMO. I’m thinking, I’ve given this lady so much business and yet I’ve never met her in person. I think it’s time we met.

Fast forward to a year and nearly $500 in projects later, we actually had the opportunity to meet. Brian and I were on our way to dinner. I needed to drop a couple of shirts off to be printed and she just happened to be home.


Meet Nicole, the most awesome t-shirt lady ever. Over a dozen shirts later, we finally met! I was like, we have to take a pictures to commemorate this!


I dug up our transaction history on Venmo and my very first payment to her was on September 3. We would have been working on those designs and chatting back and forth over Facebook Messenger around this time last year.


T-shirts are mostly what I need but Nicole can do more than just shirts. She can do mugs, tumblers, notebooks — she can print on just about anything. If you have a project that you need completed, please be sure reach out to Simply Charming Designs on Facebook. She is super awesome to work with. I highly recommend her. Anyway, I am just one of many happy customers. Hire her for your next personalized or custom project and join the club!

Until next time. GNG.
