Designer Tees

My little boy has become a t-shirt designer:

Close-Up

Augie drew this drawing of Great Grandpa. Chris added the lettering and screen printed the whole image on t-shirts for all 16 great grandchildren.

Shirts Drying

We gave these away when we had this year’s double-Augie birthday party.

Shirts Ready to Be Given

I think they turned out wonderful.

Chris has gotten pretty good at these over the years. He made his own “press” using this book and also makes his own screens. Here he is in our laundry room which he has turned into his shop for this project.

The Shop

The process seems to be pretty easy and fast, but I really don’t know too much about it. He started it the night before: ironing the shirts, exposing the picture and making the screen. Then the morning of the party, he whipped them all out with plenty of time for drying.

Yes, my man’s got talent.
