Poster challenge

Tom and I have been cranking on lots of stuff, but we needed to shake things up. So we decided early this week that we’d carve out a little time on Friday for a “Poster Duel.”

Essentially we’d get in this morning and print something by the end of the day. There weren’t really any other rules. I kept asking questions because I like parameters and Tom said I was thinking too hard.

By 11am we had files ready for screen production and printed out tests this afternoon.

We feel accomplished and deserving of beer. Good times.

Awesome! Love the final font choice, Chris and Tom’s perspective is solid. Inspirational, love you guys.

Love the prints. Will Tom’s print be available in the store (or outside the store, by mail) for those interested in obtaining one?

Yep Jonathon, they will be available for sale. We’ve got to figure out a few things before that happens (mailing tubes, shipping rates for non-t-shirt items) but they will make it to the world. I’ll let Tom know to alert you when they go up for sale.

What a pleasure to get in my rss reader and see an update from y’all after so long! That printing on wood (balsa wood?) looks great. What kind of machine does that?

Friend pointed me here, love what you guys are doing. I’ve been imagining something similar. Keep rocking! -N

Jotham – we simply used a screenprinting press to print on wood. Image of it here

I totally want to buy one of Chris’s prints to hang in the woodshop at Hive13

Love these! Definitely want a print of each.

[…] The important thing though? We had fun. You can see Tom’s creation and some process shots here… […]
