Starting a blog (and clothing company)!
Thanks for visiting Possum Print, and my blog! I decided to start a blog after a few people have asked me about screen printing and making clothing, so I thought I’d try my best at helping some of you out!
A few years ago I was in a band, and, like all bands, we needed t-shirts to sell at gigs. I started looking up how to screen-print t-shirts, and after binge watching a few YouTube tutorials on the subject, I bought a second hand screen press, some ink, and set up shop in my bedroom.
I printed 50 t-shirts for my band, (we ended up selling about 5), but they came out pretty well! I then started printing t-shirts for friends who were in bands, and then friends of friends who were in bands.
I then started printing my own t-shirts, with slogans I felt passionate about that I wanted to wear, and people seemed to like them so I decided to print up more designs that I could give to friends and other people who liked them and connected with the messages!
Going forward, I want to make more t-shirts that focus on positivity, equal rights, and tackle important issues in todays society, and I want to make them easily affordable, so everyone who wants to get behind the message, can!
I’d really appreciate it if you followed our Instagram page (@possumprint) to see more designs and blog updates. I’ll try and post at least once a month, and if you want to know anything about making and printing your own clothing, then let me know and I’ll try to do a blog post about it!
