Hi, my name is Jackson Robinson, 

Two of my favorite things of all time is printmaking and designing T-shirts. Part of printmaking is engraving the printing plate. I engrave metal, wood, linoleum, basically anything that I can engrave and make prints from. You may be asking yourself, “Self, what does this weirdo's love of printmaking have anything to do with designing t-shirts?” Well, I’m glad you asked, I’m trying out something brand new (to me) and smashing together two things that I love, printmaking and designing t-shirts. I have hand carved three really sweet designs that I am using with my etching press to create handmade, block printed t-shirts. If you like really cool handmade stuff you should totally back this project. If you become a backer of this project you will get to choose from any of the three designs I’ve created for this project and I’ll block print them by hand, on one of three colored shirts. If you decide to step it up a notch and get all three shirt designs I’ll through in one of the custom playing card decks I have designed. So to recap if you really like super awesome handmade t-shirts then help me make the project a reality and become a backer.

 Shirt Stock and Sizing

All shirts will be printed on Bella + Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees and will only be offered in the following sizes:

Measurements are the "Chest to fit" size

  • SMALL - 31"-34"
  • MEDIUM - 34"-37"
  • LARGE - 42"-45"
  • EXTRA LARGE - 46"49"
  • DOUBLE EXTRA LARGE - 50" - 53"
  • TRIPLE EXTRA LARGE - 54"-57"

Please note that there is a possibility that a specific shirt size in a specific color may be unavailable at the time of production. We will be sure and notify you if that is the case to make a change.

NOTICE:

Each shirt is one of a kind and will differ slighty from the ones featured in the videos above. Due to the "hand made" nature of block printing there will be slight inconsistancies in the print quality and ink coverage. These are all aspecs that make your shirt a one of kind product.

Risks and challenges

I love Kickstarter and the Kickstarter community, and crazy enough this will be my 23 Kickstarter project. There are always risks and challenges with any project. I will do my best to be transparent and honest about any speed bumps that may arise. One of the things I like most about this project is that it is pretty simple and straightforward.
