The Only Thing Worse Than a Bad Boston Accent…

I live in Cambridge, MA and the last time I checked it was not part of the City of Boston. Some new t-shirts appearing at “our” new Target (really? in Central Square? Good luck unless they have a liquor store in there) store were designed apparently by a New York firm. How you could design…

How to Print Japanese Woodblock Prints

Yesterday I posted about a technique called Japanese woodblock printing. Here is a video that shows more on how the printing was done. It will make you appreciate how easy it is to screenprint. Here is a video about the printing with the woodblocks. And here is a video on how the carving of the…

Misprint Monday: Clearing Out Old Files

In a move that moves me closer to going fully to DTS (Direct to Screen) I have started to clear out old art files. What a bad chore that would be so much easier if everything was digital only.  If you have lots of space like we do (almost 30K s.f.) you tend to save…

Cubs and Indians Win! No, not a misprint Monday on that but…

The Cubs and Indians are in the World Series! Who would have thunk it? Besides my thinking that if the Cubs win the next round that Theo Epstein becomes a candidate for the Baseball Hall of Fame, I have a couple of other thoughts as a t-shirt printer. Clearly most of the t-shirt world is…

Some photos and then a more or less translation down below about what they are about. Raubdruckerin uses existing surfaces such as grids,…

The Nashville ISS show is this week, I hope to see some of you there. Last year I had the distinct pleasure of visiting with Andy Anderson and seeing his shop in Nashville. He is a real renaissance man, with three distinct areas of expertise: motorcycle design and painting, underwater photography, and then to top…

Shirt of the Week: Unathletic

Jim Seery is a drummer in the bands the Coffin Lids and Triple Thick as well as the chef at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge, MA. I’m not sure whether he is athletic, but I’m sure he’s got a good shirt. Like most good shirts, it is simple and to the point. The word…

Misprint Monday: Gee, There are Limits to Spellcheck Programs

We spelled “Hopkinton” wrong the other day. Luckily it wasn’t that many shirts.  Hopkinton is a very small town, which is primarily known for being the starting place of the Boston Marathon. Our artist put a “G” in there making it Hopkington, which looks correct unless you know otherwise. I just noticed that the autospell…
