I did launch a few shirts earlier this year. You might remember this post featuring the worst selfie in history . Learning how to screen print was amazing and will sure come in handy with future products. However I found I would get anxiety with each order because I wanted each tee design to look like the next. Yes, handmade is unique and that's one of the best qualities about the industry. Yet I had to think about my customers and what would satisfy them.
Now, I'll be re-launching Hello Awesome Tees! There's a local handmade screen printing shop in my town run by a husband and a wife creative team. Outsourcing the printing has been amazing and the quality is so much higher. 6 designs will be coming out, some original and some revised:
- LOVE beats FEAR
- Refused to Sink
- Girl compete, Ladies uplift
- Tried through the fire, shining like a diamond
- Bloom where you are planted
- Wake up & make stuff
Let me take a moment to gush about this girl. Sarah is not only a great friend of mine but she is such a talented young woman!! Super crafty, handy with a camera and crazy adorable style. Seriously, she's taking me under her wing. Her love for God is so empowering and encouraging as it shows through everything she does. I was so blessed to work with her during this shoot especially since I know from our family portraits that these photos for the shop would be amazing.
