October print New Deadmau5 merchandise

deadmau5

Designed by Hannah Morrison, in a departure from the usual band merchandise, bamboo fabric T-s were printed using soft water based inks to create a retail look for Deadmau5. The garments were then re-labelled and presented in organic canvas bags, also printed with water based inks.  In a music download culture, it looks like artists are not just recognising the increased importance of merchandise, but also wanting to present a high street quality product.

Screen printing and T shirt printing techniques

Plastisol – the most common plastisol based print used in garment decoration. Good colour opacity onto dark garments, clear graphic detail, with as the name suggests, a more plasticized texture. This print can be made softer with special additives or heavier by adding extra layers of ink.

Water Based inks – these penetrate the fabric more than the plastisol inks and create a much softer feel. Ideal for printing darker inks onto lighter coloured garments. Also useful for larger area prints where texture is important.

Discharge inks – used to print lighter colours onto dark background fabrics, they work by removing the dye in the garment – this means they leave a much softer texture. They are less graphic in nature than plastisol inks, and exact colours are difficult to control, but especially good for distressed and vintage prints.

Foil – is what you would imagine. A glue is printed onto the fabric and then foils applied for a mirror finish. Due to the gold or silver foil used, minimum quantity of 100 applies.

Glitter/Shimmer – silver flakes are suspended in a plastisol ink to create this sparkle effect. Usually available in gold or silver but can be mixed to make most colours.

Metallic – similar to glitter, but smaller particles suspended in the ink.

 

 

 

Expanding ink (puff) – an additive to plastisol inks which raises the print off the garment, creating a 3D feel.

Caviar beads – again a glue is printed in the shape of the design, to which small plastic beads are then applied – works well with solid block areas creating an interesting tactile surface. Minimum quantity of 100 applies.

Four colour process – artwork is created using dots (CMYK) which combine to create the full spectrum of colours needed for photographic prints – this means an infinite number of colours can be printed using only 4 screens, making the set-up costs viable. The inks are required to blend and are more translucent, meaning a compromise with vibrancy of colour.

Gloss – a clear base laid over plastisol inks to create a shiny finish.

Nylobond – a special ink additive for printing onto technical or waterproof fabrics.

Mirrored Silver – Another solvent based ink but you can almost see your face in it.

 

 

 

 

Special effects

Fluorescents, Phosphorescents (glow in the dark),

Thermochromics (colour changes with heat)

Own Clothing – tshirts and modern streetwear

Founded in 2007 by two individuals with no prior experience or contacts inside the fashion industry who shared a dream of creating an independent clothing company with the key focus being on creativity. Born out of that dream wa OWN.

blackeyes

The name “OWN” was originally intended as a reference to modern street wear culture, and hoped it would provoke som thought behind why individuals purchase copious amounts of branded clothes and footwear not just to wear but to also “keep them on ice”. Why do we need to have these products? Do we aspire to possess them because not everyone can? Or is it to own something purely for the satisfaction of having it in your life?

purplehoody1

Over time the concept behind the name evolved and caused further contemplation over how plans, decisions, religion and desires can own you. As a brand we produce well executed fashion pieces and graphics that express critical ideas an challenge conformity.

Built on a minimal budget and maximum commitment OWN is sold in some of the United Kingdom’s finest street wear boutiques and direct through our online store. As we continue to do our own thing we hope that you’ll keep up to date with our news, events, promotions and product updates, via the OWN blog.

Thank you for supporting independents.

Chunk – Clever T shirt design – North London

CHUNK BIOGRAPHY

Like all good ideas, the idea for Chunk came about one Friday night in the pub, back in the heady days of September 2000.

chunk

Quote: “A friend had just bought an old Ford Capri MkI and with it, came a Haynes manual. So proud was she of her new purchase, she took the manual to the pub where we all sat around admiring the cover until someone said “wouldn’t that look great on a T-shirt”. And that, as they say, was that. Chunk launched and was quickly noticed by the leading stores: Harvey Nichols, The Dispensary, Richmond Classics, and the name and the range grew quickly. We gave up our jobs, sold our houses and concentrated on making Chunk a great UK brand.

We moved into the first Chunk Towers (a 200sq ft room in Shoreditch with a glass roof and no heating) which we quickly outgrew, so we moved into the existing Chunk Towers, a 47 storey building with flags flying from the roof and marble lions by the door in that trendy area, Tottenham, North London. From the outset, our ethos was to produce excellent quality garments at a fair price. We wanted Chunk to use iconic images and adapt them to put them in different contexts, make them clever or funny or quirky.

We wanted the clothing to be detailed and well thought through. We wanted Chunk to bring clever design and a bit of fun to fashion.

Six years later and Chunk now produces two seasonal collections a year, two injection ranges and new T-shirt designs every 12 weeks”.
