I haven’t read the book, so if I were to wear this I’d be a phony too, but I guess that would be okay in context.

diy screen prints kits

Screen printing is not an easy job, there’s no denying that, but even I have thought it would be pretty fun to print my own tees, and I’m a guy that already has more than 300 of them (and I’ve stopped accepting samples, they all go to the other bloggers now). It seems that Print Liberation have felt that attraction too, a few years back they released a book about DIY screen printing, and now they’ve gone a step further by launching, a site dedicated to helping your ideas printed and out in the world.

Imagine you’re new to the industry and want to get your feet wet in the world of printing, maybe doing a few tees for your friends, or printing some posters you’ve designed, a kit that has everything in it from a company that you know makes cool shirts (that were good quality, if my trip to their shop in Philly back in ’09 is a fair representation, if not particularly up to date) would be a pretty appealing situation. You give them $250, they send to a box with everything in it and you’d be good to go. Well, apart from the actual t-shirts, but I guess that wholesaling blank tees isn’t a business they want to get into.

What do you think guys, seems pretty cool to me, any printers out there want to drop in their 2 cents in the comments?


vomitt romney t-shirt

I don’t know how to feel about Mitt Romney, he looks like he should be President, which means people will probably vote for him, and yet everything he says and does makes me feel as if his Presidency would be a complete catastrophe and I’m amazed that he has the balls to call Obama privileged and elitist.

judgment day t-shirt

I am in no way surprised that there are “I survived the rapture/judgment day/tacos from that shady looking truck last night” t-shirts coming out already, but I am curious who would wear them since this event is gone and will be forgotten in a week, so the shirts will be hung up in a closet alongside the owner’s Charlie Sheen shirt and never worn again until they need to do some painting.

Oh, and I thought it looked a bit weird, so I checked and you can have judgement or judgement.

recycle t-shirt by print liberation

Philly’s finest are at it again, well, finest after Art In The Age, obviously, and this time, they’re saving the planet with a t-shirt that has a bike on it!

The cotton is 100% organic, and the ink is environmentally-friendly too, so you will be even more justified in feeling superior to people when you’re biking around town whilst they’re trying to mow you down in their cars.

Oil Blows by Print Liberation

oil blows t-shirt by pint liberation

I know it’s very, very complicated, but it’s pretty amazing that there is still oil spewing out of that pipeline into the Gulf as we speak read.

Print Liberation’s Big Ass Sale

by Andy on January 15, 2010

It’s a little bit odd that Print Liberation have a tee proclaiming “FUCK, SHIT, DAMN, ASS, HELL” and yet they’ll censor a promo image that has the word ‘ass’ in it.


Destroy Fox News by Print Liberation

by Andy on November 13, 2009


Here’s the thing, I’m British, and even I hate Fox News. In fairness to them, whilst they are astoundingly biased, they do cover stories, unlike CNN, which I tried to watch when I was in America, but when I realised that they covered about 3 stories an hour I had to move on and just read the BBC online.

The Macintosh by Print Liberation

by Andy on September 18, 2009

macintosh t-shirt

So, we blew one up yesterday, and then the C-Dog (as no one calls him, probably) found a Macintosh that hadn’t been ripped apart. Back in the early 90s my family actually had a Mac, I forget the model, but I remember it being an exciting day when we upgraded the memory from 4mb to 8mb (or something like that), so I guess that even though I’m a Windows type fellow with the exception of my beloved iPhone and contemplating hackintosh-ing my new PC with Snow Leopard, I was into Macs before they were cool (were they ever not cool?).

The tee shows off Print Liberation’s typically restrained design style, which would probably look boring if it was small, but luckily they’ve made it nice ‘n big so it works.

P.S. Did anyone see Print Liberation’s 9/11 tee? I wouldn’t call myself a fan.


Rush Limbarf by Print Liberation

by Andy on July 30, 2009


I’m not sure if Rush Limbaugh is in the news at the moment or not (I’m a few days behind on my Daily Shows), but I was perusing Print Liberation and I saw this tee, and my first reaction was “wow, that guy is a total douche.” You might find this shocking, but after several moments of reflection, I still think he’s a douche.

Print Liberation Store in Philadelphia

When I left Philly to embark on my great journey around the West coast I resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn’t get to visit the new Print Liberation store up in Northern Liberties. However, before flying home to Great Britain (emphasis on the Great), I did spend a couple more days in Philly and went out to a great Mexican place that served grilled baby octopus that tasted exactly like chicken lo mein, and whilst we were there one of my dining companions (who is probably reading this) mentioned that the store wasn’t that far away, so we headed down after finishing our margaritas. By the way, how amazing are margaritas? It’s as if someone took lemonade, and decided it wasn’t awesome enough yet, so they put booze in it.

I’d love to tell you that the store itself is a Johnny Cupcake-esque journey of wonder and amazement, but it’s just a normal store, with a table tennis table in it. It’s cool, don’t get me wrong, I like Print Liberation’s tees because they’re bold and simple, so it makes sense that the store sticks to the same aesthetic, but I didn’t want to build it up for you too much. In other PL-related news, they’ve started selling one-off test tees (haha, testees!) which could probably be summed up as ‘normal Print Liberation tees + a bucket of crazy + thumbprints’, they aren’t my bag, but I’m sure some of you will enjoy the mystery of buying a t-shirt that can essentially be looked upon as a ‘mistake’.

My Life Rocks by Print Liberation

by Andy on May 10, 2009


With the robo-posting schedule we’re running at the moment, I’m actually writing this post on April 30th (the Sixers went out the playoffs about an hour ago, sigh), so I’m presuming that my life rocks when this post goes live because I’m going to be roaming around LA, because who doesn’t have a good time in LA? Hmmm… I hope I don’t have to switch the tee in this post for this one.

Oh, and for the Philly-ites I’ve left behind, Print Liberation, who make the above tee, are opening a store up in NoLibs (see, I got the local slang down) on May 15th. I’ve included the crap-tastic commercial about the store opening about the cut.

Ha! Funny stuff once again from the Print Liberation crew.

Here’s some news that I found out from one of my favourite new tee blogs, Print Liberation, who are a company that do simple tees right (amongst other things), are celebrating their tenth anniversary by releasing the tee pictured above. It’s kinda funny that I associated PL with strong, simple prints, and then this tee is kinda fancy, but I guess they wanted to go with a vintage look, something which is hardly surprising considering they’re celebrating the passage of time.

The obligatory Barack Obama post

by Andy on November 6, 2008

I stayed up all last night watching the historic events unfold across the Atlantic, even if it meant that I didn’t eventually get to bed after 6:30am French time, but it was very much worth it to hear Obama’s first speech as President elect of the United States of America.

This design has been doing the rounds today, and with good reason. The tee is by Print Liberation, a group that have a knack of producing tees that manage to look both retro-inspired and really fresh at the same time. Also, I feel like their tees are the kind that just look good when you’re wearing them, and that they can be matched up with pretty much anything.

If you want to learn how to screen print from anyone, a company that makes really cool tees is a pretty good choice. I’ve never attempted screen printing, but I’d imagine that if I were going to give it a go then I’d need a fair amount of instruction, and my SpideyAndy-sense is telling me that Print Liberation team have the skills to make a pretty looking book.Costiness=$25 Link (Amazon Link)



Tees with a positive message have usually seemed a bit lame to me, but this one from Print Liberation has forced me to re-evaluate my position on t-shirts that. I guess it isn’t actually a positive message, its more of a lemons/lemonade kinda deal, but still. I really like the way that they’ve thrown the type all over the tee, and put the arrows some of the letters to reinforce the message of how different decisions can change your life.Costiness=$22 Link
