How It’s Made: Screen Printing Tees

13 Jan

Have you ever wondered how the screen printing process works? Our friend Isabel is a local photographer and devoted supporter of the Delaware Army National Guard. In the fall, she ordered shirts for the soldiers of the 3rd platoon of the 946th Transportation Company, who returned home from Afghanistan at the end of the month. We happily donated the shirts and are very happy to share with you the images from the shirt-making process.

In November, Isabel documented the birth of a t-shirt, from the inception of the design to the printing and drying of the shirt.  She has done a beautiful photo essay and blog post detailing the process. You can see her amazing photography and read the post in full here: http://welcomehome946thtc.blogspot.com/2013/11/0-0-2012-04-10t161700z-2012-04.html.

On Pins & Promo Cups: this weekend is the Fair Hill International

17 Oct

This weekend is the 25th Annual Fair Hill International and the Festival in the Country at Fair Hill Stables and Fairgrounds in Cecil County, Maryland.  The Fair Hill International is a series of world-class riding and driving competitions.  Meanwhile, the Festival in the Country is a celebration of life in Eastern Maryland, featuring Chesapeake Bay area food and drink, dog agility competitions, Chincoteague pony drill team, live music, miniature horse demonstrations, educational exhibits, classic cars, a trade fair filled with shopping opportunities, and more. These huge events bring thousands of people to the area.

The folks who run the Fair Hill International are duly ecstatic that the event is in its 25th year.  They came to us about a month ago to get a few items made to celebrate this milestone. The first items we worked on were these pins:

We made two styles of pins. The first is a gold soft enamel pin, an inch and a half in diameter, made especially for the owners. This pin showcases this year’s new main sponsor, the Dutta Corp.  The second is a silver photo etched pin marking the silver anniversary of the event. It is an inch and a half wide and features the anniversary logo.

The silver theme carried over from the pins to stadium cups another Fair Hill International organizer requested. The light gray cup, seen below, is printed on both sides and features the Dutta Corp logo and the 25th anniversary logo in black and yellow. I believe the cups will be distributed in one of the sponsors’ tents.
