I hope everyone has been well and had an eventful July 4th! During the past few weeks, since the surveys were sent back, there was a major setback with my personal deadline of June 20th (the first day of summer). Unfortunately, I was unable to meet that deadline. There were two contributing factors. Firstly, the summer season saw an increase demand on American Apparel tank tops. Secondly, shirt printers usually buy shirts in bulk quanties. Our order has all kinds of different sizes, colors and styles which took some time to acquire.
Now to the good news! Yesterday the shirts came in to the shop and today, I was invited to get a sneak peak on the printing and production process. The folks over at Glad Rags Ink (www.gladragsink.com) who is producing the shirt have a great setup and great people. If you are ever looking for a printer for a project don't hesitate to call them.
With that being said, I made a short video of the production process for you to check out. I hope you enjoy it! All shirts should be printed by the end of the week. I look forward to shipping as early as next week!
Thanks for your support and more importantly, thank you for your patience!
We did it! The project is officially going to be funded! It could not have been possible without your support. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I'm excited about the next phase and getting these shirts to you before it gets any warmer!
So What's Next?
I'm going to be sending out surveys to get information on the following: shirt style, size, color and shipping address. I've decided to go with American Apparel shirts. I believe they provide a high quality, nicely-fitted shirt. (Doesn't hurt that they are based in LA too, so that's perfect!)
I'm currently waiting on samples for two versions of the gold print on black. I'm going to test them and see how they are before deciding on the final version for production.
I would appreciate if you could send your survey in a timely manner!
