Last weekend, I loaded up a borrowed truck with a portable screen printing studio: nine designs on nine screens, nine colors, nine squeegees and hundreds of really nice t-shirts to Vail and set up shop at Nativeyewear's lounge at the Teva Mountain Games area to screen print t-shirts to anyone and everyone that wanted one - whatever t-shirt, whatever graphic, wherever they wanted - and how every many they wanted of each design.
We had some fun. Actually, we had a smash hit.
That line formed about three minutes into starting to print t-shirts and didn't relent until we ran out of them. Actually, not even then! As I was more than happy to screen print whatever people were wearing. In one case, we attempted to screen print a kayak!
Printing custom t-shirts takes a little time to do. To my surprise, my extremely patient t-shirt fans did not mind the wait - or my goofing off, while we wait for a design to cure onto the t-shirt. A pleasant experience and wonderful to talk to all the people who came for the event.

Above is custom design whipped up! Mounntains on the front, tire treads and a mountain biker over the seam! Sweet!
Another happy custom t-shirt owner!
Hard at work!
Thanks has to go out to Nativeyewear for supporting me and letting me do some great designs for them, taking me up to Vail and letting me have fun with all the people who came round for a complement-of-Native shirt! Awesome people to work with and I feel pretty lucky to play a small part in all the fun they put together. Let's do it again, guys!
