We are Brooklyn natives Roni Henning, also a Master Printer and artist and Dawn Henning, also an artist and printmaker and we both are deeply concerned about the natural world.  We are working out of the Henning Printshop in Brooklyn.  We've created a line of tee shirts illustrating some of the endangered species around the world that we are worried about. We love nature and want to have a Tee Shirt company that is also environmentally responsible using sustainable organic tees made in the US. 

The designs are ready and we've printed prototypes so there is very little risk involved regarding the rewards.  This Kickstarter campaign will pay for a first run of shirts, inks and new screens if we need to replace any current screens as well as an ink dryer.  We'll be doing all the printing ourselves until we get a little more established, using water based inks and organic tee shirts. The plan is to also to support and make contributions each year to organizations who are making a difference and helping to protect the natural world.  

 Please note that tee shirt design and size selections will be made once this project is fully funded.  All designs are available.

Risks and challenges

Since we have already tested and printed the designs on sample tees and experimented with various inks we don't anticipate any issues or risks with this project.
