Big McDunk Blog

So what is the Big McDunk, where can it be experienced and how did the Big McDunk t-shirt evolve? Read on for a blog recounting a recent custom print order we thoroughly enjoyed compiling!


‘The Royale Meal Van’ is run by hard working Duncan and Sheila and has been located on Chanonry Road South (outside Bookers Wholesale) in the city of Elgin, North East Scotland for the last 13 years. It is well known locally for hearty breakfasts, delicious home made soups, daily lunchtime specials and of course, Duncan’s signature creation, the ‘Big McDunk’. Consisting of a quarter pound butcher’s burger, cheese slice, haggis, back bacon, onion rings, salad and more cheese in a bakers roll, consuming a whole Big McDunk really is a challenge even to those with the most bottomless stomachs!

 The Royale Meal Van 

Keen to capitalise on the popularity of the Big McDunk amongst their regular customers, during a rare period of downtime due to lockdown restrictions, Duncan and Sheila contacted Cleekers after seeing Cleekers’ t-shirts worn by one of their family members. After initial discussions where Duncan described his basic vision for the t-shirts and the text he intended on using, our designer Jason set to work on creating an image that would print to a high, durable standard and would successfully market the Big McDunk.


Using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Jason spent time meticulously crafting the image, ensuring it was suited to our print system and appropriate for any of our t-shirt sizes. After frequently liaising with Duncan and keeping him updated on the progress, when we sent him the mock up image below, he agreed immediately, added details of some customised back text, submitted an order for the number of t-shirts and sizes he needed and then we quickly set to work on printing them! Royal Mail kindly ensured a rapid delivery and then just 12 days after Duncan initially made contact, we had a selfie of Duncan and Sheila at home wearing their new Big McDunk t-shirts and telling us they were very happy customers.

Mock Up Image

 We are certainly looking forward to visiting the Royale Meal van to treat ourselves to a feast fit for a King when restrictions allow and wish Duncan and Sheila all the best for future trading. On this occasion, the Big McDunk t-shirts are being shared amongst staff and loyal customers, so may become a familiar sight around Elgin. However, now that the image has been created, it is available to swiftly be printed on any other products such as hats or aprons should our customer wish to pursue those or it can be resized for a chest logo on a t-shirt or polo shirt. You never know….’buy 10 Big McDunks, get the t-shirt’?! Remember where you heard it first!
