About

Toxic Fossil artisan tees are the perfect fusion of weird-but-fun original pop-art and aesthetically trendy t-shirt design tailored not just to help you make a statement but to BE the statement.

 Because I am screen printing the main design on each tee by hand, I will be offering a limited-run design once a month. Your generous support will help me to purchase the necessary equipment and supplies (such as an extra 4-station table-top screen printing machine, screens and screen printing inks, as well as quality t-shirts of various sizes, advertising, etc.). 

 I will also be designing and self-assembling unique packaging for shipping and in-store sales. I'm excited to share these artistic ideas with you. Thank you in advance for your support of Toxic Fossil! 

Risks and challenges

I've been screen printing several test designs for the past year and have the process down, so skill won't be a factor. Speed, on the other hand, will be a slight challenge in the beginning as I've only sprint-printed a few t-shirts at a time and not an entire month's run of shirts (the exact number to be determined), But I don't want to sacrifice the hand-made artisan quality of the process for speed and output, so I think the main challenge will be to find a happy medium between the two. Finding the right quality tees will be the greatest challenge as I want to provide comfortable cotton or cotton-blend tees to my customers and not rough, stiff-fitting shirts. Comfort absolutely needs to be an important factor of the design, so I may need to pay a little more for quality tees. As this is not an on-demand t-shirt company (I don't do custom customer designs but rather my own), I don't have the pressure of fulfilling orders (other than the required monthly tees), so this will allow for better creative and artistic control over the long-term.
