Workshops for Januray and February

The schedule is out for our January and February workshops. We have two beginner classes offered each month. They are a great crash course for anyone who is interested in knowing more about screen printing. We are also offering a new class designed help out people who want to start a bulk screenprinting project but are unsure how to get the ball rolling.

All of our workshops can also be purchased as a gift for the holidays and recipients can pick the class that fits their schedule. Click on the image to view descriptions and dates for these workshops. All classes can be registered for in person at the shop or over the phone.

Kittens for Best Coast

We recently made friends with the indie group Best Coast during Fun Fun Fun Fest. Courtesy of our newest intern Jonathan Hubbell and his girlfriend's Mom we made contact and showed them some designs for a Fun Fun Fun Fest screenprinted gig poster. In case you are unfamiliar, their sweet indie pop styling emerged earlier this year with debut release "Crazy For You". They have since been hitting the road hard and were one of the featured bands at this year's FFF Fest.

The poster design, a collaboration of Jonathan and owner Sam, features two creepy kittens who apparently have eyes for no one other than Best Coast. If you missed the merch table after the show you can buy one at our etsy shop here.

The lead singer Bethany is certainly keen on felines and our creepy kitten design had her smitten, so much so that they wanted the same design on some shirts. We ran off a small run for Holiday sales and will be doing a much larger quantity for their upcoming 2011 tour with Wavves. I'm sure they will be passing through Austin early next year, so if you like what you see be sure to check them out when they pass through to snag one of these little kitties.
