the last month or so

November 5, 2010

Around printing a thousand totes for a charity, and all the merch for Supersonic Festival, we’ve somehow also found to time to print these lovely things recently, and more would you believe!

Deaf To Van Gogh’s Ear

The Working Dead


Robbie Manson, on very, very nice American Apparel tri-blend athletic track shirts



The Arteries

No Guts No Glory

Bogus Clothing

…and some none-T-shirt items

Leagues Apart


…and last but by no means least,

Stupidly forgot to take a photo of these awesome tour posters designed by Dan Bowden. Here’s one sitting in the drying rack. The pink was so bright!

this is going to make me look bad but

I can’t for the life of me find the website for this clothing label we printed T-shirts for. If anyone has any ideas, please send me the link so I can amend this blog post!

T-shirt update

September 16, 2010

We’ve been printing a bunch of shirts for all sorts of people over the last few weeks… here’s a taster

For our pal Neil at Mouldy Loaf, we used to share a shop and he always gets the BEST illustrators doodling for him

Tech Staff uniforms ready for Birmingham’s newest venue the HMV Institute which opens this weekend.

New shirts for Bangers, which we had to post to Austria while they’re on tour in Europe at the moment.

Some nice baseball shirts for Caves.

Sepia-toned, halftone ‘Carousel’ design for clothing label Dead Giraffe.

I can’t remember what these were for, but I like the design.

Project Trident: “A group of Cambridge based DIY film-makers”

Birmingham-based clothing label, Villain.

And finally, this T-shirt for Bogus Clothing, which Sam is still in the middle of printing as I post.

so yeah, this cool T-shirt

September 7, 2010

Fights and Fires are on tour all over the place September-October, so they asked us to print this nifty design onto some shirts to take with them. We’ve printed a lot of halftone T-shirts recently, maybe it’s the new ‘thing’, (we’re not cool enough to keep up with trends, but we do enjoy printing them). Catch the band all over Europe and the UK SOON

Ships, cowboys, monsters and bears

August 24, 2010

Tall Ships have been busy boys this summer; touring, recording and partying pretty hard. We printed these cowboy T-shirts in preparation for their tour with Seattle’s Minus The Bear next week, and while we were at it, Big Scary Monsters asked us to print sleeves for what I believe to be the third pressing on their debut EP. Definitely worth getting hold of a copy before they all go again.

We love crack

August 11, 2010

We printed some T-shirts for Bristol-based art and music magazine and website Crack for the launch of their third issue, including some pretty splendid halftone.

The Tallest Ships

June 10, 2010

Tall Ships are about to embark on a FREE tour of the UK, kindly organised for our enjoyment by Big Scary Monsters with another awesome band, Men (more on them in the next blog post). The Birmingham date is at the Flapper on the 16th June and we are realllly looking forward to going.

Be sure to pick up one of these shirts we’ve printed for them in a choice of two delightfully summery shades…

Bangers are on tour for a long time

May 31, 2010

and although they are coming to the end of their UK leg, they have a few weeks and 30 plus shows in mainland Europe to look forward to with US band Dirty Tactics. All the tour has been organised by Flix Records, who I’m doing some printing for this week, so another blog post will follow.

Needless to say, there are new Bangers shirts, patches and music on their merch stand.

Pocket T-shirt and patches designed by Jamie from Got Vitamin C

This shirt was printed from a photograph taken by Nathan Blaker, a great photographer who also runs No Guts No Glory

Violet Bones

May 17, 2010

Rik and the guys from Violet Bones wanted to splash out on some new T-shirts for their band, and went for a range of nice American Apparel garments. They play great pop-indie with some sweet guitar solos thrown in for good measure. Definitely a good band to start a Monday back at the studio with.

Good eggs at Bad Egg Records

April 11, 2010

The great folks from Bad Egg Records have released a split 7″ of Fuck Your Haircut and Stinky Wizzleteat. Sticking to their DIY ethics they wanted to make their own sleeves, which we printed. It not only works out pretty cheap, they look awesome (nice bit of halftone printing), and from the photos you can see that the guys had a great time cutting them out and putting them together. Eat A Book Records have a great post on their blog showing how they made them. I’m sure the launch party last night at The Sunflower Lounge was great, little bit gutted I missed it but I’m going to make sure I get to some of their shows soon.
