Project Description

The front of each shirt was individually typeset by hand using vintage woodtype. As a result, the letter-spacing is varied, and each impression distinct (some light, others dark), making each shirt unique and perfectly imperfect. The inside neck tag and sizing, lower inside edition number, branding, and garment care instructions were also stamped by hand. Altogether, there are 12 impressions on each shirt, all done by hand, one at a time.

Additionally, two custom hang-tags were created for each shirt. Hand-cut and hand-stamped with a grommet insert and red thread. Also hand crafted were the double-sided brand card and envelope, as well as the packaging which includes branding on the front, and sizing and description on the back.

As a companion piece, I printed a Hustle Flag linocut in a limited edition red and white colorway, which comes in a branded canvas bag, and is signed and numbered to match the edition number of the shirt.

Production Lesson(s)

Make sure you're working with the right type of ink when printing on textiles, and don't forget to heat set.”
