Brace yourselves – the festival is coming. This has pretty much been us for the last couple of weeks in the studio, as we find ourselves with a tonne of different print jobs for the world famous (and locally dreaded) Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Check out our most recent screen printed t-shirts and designs from this week:
Dance Base Screen Printed T-shirts
We have been printing for Dance Base for over a year now, and in that time we’ve worked on a whole bunch of interesting projects for them, across a wide range of garments and specific dance apparel. They have a jam packed programme of fantastic performances and events lined up for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe beginning next week, so we have set them up with all of their staff and promotional clothing – check out some of the tees below:
This year’s t-shirts feature the Dance Base logo on the left chest, and their 2016 Festival design on the back. These guys have opted for really nice quality Bella + Canvas Tri-blend tees as well as Russell HD T-shirts. This single colour design is simple and effective – alternating between white and orange inks for different coloured tees really makes this design pop out. Going for a mix of different garments is always a good way to inject a bit of colour into your design, while still keeping the costs of printing down.
Dance Base is Scotland’s National Centre for Dance, and they are always up to loads of cool stuff. They are located in the Grassmarket in the heart of Edinburgh. You can check them out here for a look at all of their events, or to brush up on your breakdancing skills.
Local Heroes Screen Printed T-shirts & Totes
Local Heroes is a brand new, independent exhibition set up to showcase the very best of current Scottish design. The collection will be displayed at Edinburgh Airport from 1st – 31st August, as part of the wider Edinburgh Festival. We have just set them up with a batch of tote bags that will be on sale at the event as well as some staff tees, check ’em out below:
These bags and t-shirts were designed by graphic designer Martin Baillie and we think they look pretty ace. This is another great example of how effective a minimalist single colour print can be.
The Local Heroes exhibition is based around the theme of travel and the notion of the souvenir. Hosting the event at Edinburgh Airport means the predicted audience during the Edinburgh International Festival will be around 1.2 million passengers, from over 120 destinations. Check out the exhibition here for more info.
Liverpool Pride Screen Printed T-shirts
Our roller derby friends at Liverpool Roller Birds loved the rainbow logo print we did for Auld Reekie Roller Girls a few weeks ago so much that they just had to have their own. Good call guys, these look totally amazing – just LOOK at them:
These rainbow split fountain screen printed t-shirts incorporate six colours over a single screen. The inks blend together when pulled through the screen and you get this amazing rainbow gradient effect. The design incorporates the six colours of the iconic LGBT+ flag over the classic Liverpool Roller Birds logo. Liverpool Pride takes place this weekend in Liverpool and we’re sure these tees will be out in force!
Liverpool Roller Birds are the original Liverpool based roller derby team. You can check out the league over on their Facebook page here for info on their upcoming games.
If you love the beautiful rainbow logo tees we did for Auld Reekie Roller Girls & Liverpool Roller Birds, then you can hit us up at the following link: Custom Screen Printing. We would be super stoked to set you up with some of your very own.
