Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More


Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More is locally owned and operated and specializes in Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printing, a clean and green apparel printing technology. Big Frog is a one-stop-shop for “un-frog-ettable” custom apparel with a wide selection of services including screen printing, embroidery, vinyl, and Ultra Print (heat press). Established in 2008 by co-founders Leeward Bean, Tina Bacon-DeFrece and Ron DeFrece, the franchise brand has since expanded to nearly 100 locations in 25 states and Canada offering free 15-minute, in-person design help, no minimums, and fast turnaround (often 24-hours) on DTG printing.

A proud member of VetFran and named “Top Franchise 500 for Veterans” by Entrepreneur Magazine, Big Frog has set its sights on Arizona, Florida and Texas for expansion but is offering a nationwide incentive for veterans and first responders now through September 2023. The incentive program includes a 20% discount on the initial investment at the time of franchise agreement and waived annual royalty fees for one year. The financial incentives could add up to more than $15,000 for qualified veterans or first responders, depending on the location of the shop. Big Frog launched the veteran-focused initiative to help veterans and first responders fulfill their dreams of owning a small business.
