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.

Shirts Show Support

31 Jul

The best shirts tell stories.  This is especially true of printed shirts.  Today I’d like to share with you the story of the following shirt:

Team Tug Shirt

This shirt has a very special story to it.

As you can see, the shirt is a customized ribbon shirt. Above the heart-shaped ribbon is the text “TEAM TUG.” Inside the ribbon, it reads: “Someone I  has CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS.” 

A customer ordered these shirts for family members to wear to show support for her grandson Tug as he underwent surgery.  She told us the surgery went well.

Shirts like this offer a wonderful way
to show support for friends and loved ones.
