    As discussed in our previous blog, Ready for the Closeup: Photographic Screens, screen printing was a major industry by the 1930’s. In 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt created, as part of the New Deal, the Work Projects Administration (WPA). He created the WPA to help employ Americans during the Great Depression. In fact, the WPA became one of the first U.S. Government programs to support the arts. Many workers screen printed screen the WPA's very own posters and signs.

    It was our recent pleasure to print shirts for the Barbarossa Chapter of the Logistics Officers’ Association @ the Rammstein Airbase in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.

    They were kind enough to send a pic back of some of the troops wearing their shirts.

    We recently had the honor of printing 1500 shirts for an Independence Day festival hosted by Michigan’s 345th RSG in Kandahar, Afghanistan. We got the order a week ahead of time, whipped up a design, printed it over night, gave it to the USAF, and crossed our fingers – it made it around the world in four days, and right in time for the big day.
