“What does that say? Can I touch it?”
Purchase the gift of quality hand crafted braille T-shirts and jewelry with a secret braille message of your choosing. Our tactile t-shirt messages are hand crafted using crystals or metallic studs as braille dots. We set each dot by hand, then heat set them onto your item, so there are no scratchy prongs on the inside. Our garments are machine washable, and can be tumble dried in a cool dryer or hung up to dry. We send to anywhere in the world and can also add messages to jackets, sweat shirts or other suggested items. Our jewelry is hand embossed to give a crisp tactile pattern in standard sized braille. Easy to read, and available in either Grade 1 or Grade 2 braille, on high quality copper, brass or aluminum shapes. See more at www.brailledesign.com

Recent braille messages our customers have asked for have ranged from the quirky to the romantic, witty or shocking! It’s a message to the world that no one knows about until they dig deeper by speaking to you. Sometimes short, sometimes long, Here are a few T-shirt messages we’ve produced:
- “2 hot 2 handle”
- “sexy” (a great looking word in braille)
- “cuddle” – touch it, read it with your fingertips, you’re almost there!
- “I hate Jon Fisher” — someone who didn’t much like their boss, we think!
- “touch me” — another cute one. Or “hands off!” if you prefer.
- “time to get tactile”
- “Jennifer loves Cory” — a public message just for your lover that no one else will understand.
- “Braille readers are leaders”
- “If you can read this, you are too close”
- “I’m psychic. I knew you would ask me what this says.”
- “I (heart-shaped logo) NY” or whatever YOU love
We can make any phrase you like. Most will fit in the standard pricing we have listed on our products page. If you want something that is very, very long, we will try to accommodate your wishes, but there may be an additional fee for the additional materials and time it takes to hand set your custom item. We use Grade 2 braille by default, but will be happy to use Grade 1 if you prefer.
