[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Hot on the heels of their successful Alien Buddies Educational app launch, Artgig Studio of Pleasantville has popped up in another corner of the internet - on CafePress. Now you can purchase clothing featuring your favorite cute and quirky Alien Buddies characters. Original designs include "New and Noteworthy" infant clothing as well as a variety of cartoon-inspired styles for kids and adults.
The highly rated Alien Buddies app is designed with a variety of games and play modes to suit a range of ages from Preschool to Kindergarten. The games include audio and visual Matching , Dot-to-Dot, and an integrated Stickers activity, where kids can earn over 40 different virtual stickers as rewards for completing the games.
The idea to put the sticker characters on shirts was an easy call, says Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski. "Lis Cherry, our Creative Director illustrated all of these fantastic and cute original characters for the game and they were practically begging us to put them on shirts." Kicinski explains "It's the new business model - we own the creative and the code, but we're using the store power of Apple and Cafe Press for actual sales and distribution. It's a relatively quick and low cost way to realize a great idea - like Alien Buddies on t-shirts."
