Hand Pulled Screen Prints.....

It's been a long time coming, but we've finally set up shop for hand pulled screen-printed posters, fine art prints and up to 4 color t-shirts (Thanks to Curtis Brown, Singer of Remain Calm). My Friend Ray Brown of BrownNoise design had a big hand in making this all possible. Together we built a vacuum table for the prints and poster runs, we also pulled together to get the in house darkroom going. Another friend of ours Tim Brown, was in town from Maui, Hi. and pulled through with some clutch printing supplies just in time for our first run of prints. A collaboration between the three of us we like to call " Gnar Shark" we went a little overboard with layers but, a lot of initial tweaking of our process of burning the screens, and testing photo emulsions was necessary for the initial run.............
