About this project

Two things I love are Star Wars and mustaches. Recently, I made this t-shirt that combines the two through a minimalist design of a Stormtrooper's helmet (with a slight modification). I’ve had many people ask me where they could buy one. But unfortunately I have the only one.
This kickstarter’s goal is to change that.

These shirts will be hand made using stencils and bleach. This results in each shirt being a unique work of art. I will be refining the lines and crafting durable stencils to make sure that every shirt comes out even better than the one you see me wearing. 

We will use the money we raise to source high-quality shirts, ship the finished products promptly, make this worth our time investment, and to fund other projects on Kickstarter.

Shirt Specifications

• 100% cotton
• preshrunk
• lightweight or heavy fabric

A survey will be sent out at the conclusion of the campaign for you to choose your fabric and size.

Shipping within the US is included in the cost of the shirt!

Linoleum Block Print Speed Goal!

The Signed Print (detail view)
The Signed Print (detail view)

This is a 5" x 7" block that will be printed on 8" x 10" high quality paper. A maximum of 100 will be available through Kickstarter. Each will be signed. There will be variations in texture due to the handprinting method. No two will look exactly the same.

Stretch Goal

If we reach $3000, we’ll be able to kick start a business and set up an online store for future products. We’ll add our new logo to the sleeve of every shirt. (And it will be awesome!)

Risks and challenges

Since we are not mass-producing identical shirts, if this project is wildly successful, it may take us longer than anticipated to make all of them.
Whether this project exceeds our expectations, or merely reaches our goal, we expect to be able to ship all our shirts before the end of April.
