Over the past few weeks, we at Irregular Times have been experimenting with shirt production using the low-tech method of stenciling. Results have varied — with successes and failures both letting us know what works and what doesn’t. We’ll be showing off successes soon enough, but tonight I felt like sharing another botch, this one from last week:
Note to self: red on top of black looks like a blotch, not like red.
Additional note to self: square corners on stencil edges lead to square corners of bright white.
Through multiple trials and errors, we have things pretty much figured out at this point, including a source for ethically-made shirts to print on:
Look for a rollout of stenciled shirts on union-made shirts soon.
