keychains, enamel pins, makeup bag
All of my items start out by being designed by me on the computer using image and vector manipulation software. For screen printing I create the negative image on a transparent film and burn it onto a screen. After that, the image is put onto the shirt using a squeegee and water-based ink. The brand of ink I use is speedball since it is is water soluble and can be purchased at art stores in Canada. The tags are made/printed in China by a certified factory and sewn on/pinned on by me. The enamel pins and keychains are designed by me and manufactured in china. Pattern curation is also chosen by me with mockup production, as well as working with manufacturer on sublimation process (printing a pattern onto fabric and cut + sew process). I also will be transferring vinyl/sublimation transfers with a manual heat press.
