It may be time to bring your great T-shirt design idea to life.

Kyle and Keat Perkins of Raleigh will open their Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More franchise this week. Big Frog offers high-technology custom garment decorating with a trademarked “Direct to Garment” printing that bonds the dye to the fabric’s molecules. They also do screen printing, vinyl application, dye sublimation, ultra printing and embroidery.

Customers can get custom printing of T-shirts, sports shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, hoodies, bandanas, onesies, dog clothes, jackets, mouse pads, sports gear, tote bags and more.

According to the Big Frog website, the general price for printing on an item starts at $18, not including the cost of the clothing item picked out at the store. If the items you are printing are in stock, you can usually get the finished product within 24 hours. You can also get a free design consultation in the store.

Big Frog has more than 80 locations open and 11 more opening soon. There is currently a location at Hope Valley Commons in Durham.

The new Big Frog store, opening Wednesday, Oct. 24, is at 6675 Falls of Neuse Road, Suite 107, in the Falls Village Shopping Center. The hours will be 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. You can reach them at 919-793-2500 or by visiting
