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!

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!

No Guts No Glory New Stock

June 16, 2010

Nathan has been running his little shop, NO GUTS NO GLORY in Exeter for over six months now and it’s been really exciting watching his business go from strength the strength. This set on the latest girls and boys T-shirts, vests and totes are all designed by local Exeter artists and the first of what we hope is a long business relationship between them and us!

I have mentioned a few times now that on Saturday I went to Swansea to see Chuck Ragan, The Arteries, Bangers and Livers and Lungs. It was a completely amazing night and all the support bands were totally rad, and the headliner, well, he just blew everyone away, it was awesome. Here are some great photos of the night.

Anyway, at the show I finally got to meet my ‘business penpal’ Nathan Blaker, who runs an amazing little shop called No Guts No Glory in Exeter. Me and Nath have been in contact for a few months now, both about the same age, both self-employed, with many mutual friends, and he has been a great person to share experiences with as we are trying to make our little business’ work.

Recently we have been throwing around some ideas about putting out a zine, to be called ‘The DIY Times’. We not only share our experiences (ie. me and Sam running GET A GRIP), but many other peoples’ experiences at being self-employed or running something passionately alongside their day-job, doing something that they regard more than ‘just a hobby’. So far we have got Southsea DIY, Alex Curtis and AMMO Magazine onboard, with loads of other people and bands expressing interest about getting involved. We are really rather excited that things are starting to happen and with any luck it will be appearing in independent shops and shows around the UK in a few weeks.

Anyway, we did a little T-shirt swap and here is me sat on a table wearing my No Guts No Glory shirt today. I feel bad that I hate having my photo taken and it is rubbish, and also that Nath is bound to have a really awesome photo as he is a great photographer, but what the hell, I print T-shirts not model for a living.

Moral of the blog post, check out NGNG, buy things from their shop, add them on FACEBOOK, go visit Nathan if you are ever in Exeter and look out for The DIY Times.
