The majority of our nursing tops are printed here in Bristol; we are really proud of the fact that we take a lot of care and time and love in the nursing clothes we produce . It’s really cool to keep things local & we have the best printers ever ! No seriously Paul & Ben who print our shirts are so lovely & they can kick ass in the screen printing world Ka-Boooom.
SO what goes on when you order one of our super fabulous nursing shirts?
Lets take our Funky Tattoo Owl Breastfeeding Tee
First up we need a screen to put our image of this funky owl onto, this screen will be used put the ink on and then print onto our nursing shirts
So next we need to get this beautiful bird onto the nursing shirt:
SO Paul our very kind & brilliant printer puts the ink (nice and safe non of this yucky ink) onto the screen at the top, THEN….
The screen gets pulled down onto the nursing shirt and the ink is pulled across the screen and hence onto the nursing shirt. Because the owl graphic has been specially placed onto the screen only the image of the owl comes through.
The shirt then has to be put through a special dryer for the print to fix.
After the printing is done we hand tag, fold and pack your nursing shirt (normally while listening to a bit of Dave Grohl getting his Foo Fighters groove on) .
So each one of our printed nursing shirts are individual and produced with care. We love doing what we do, and we do it for you (thats a song isn’t it? ).
Every different graphic nursing tee has it’s own screen, and we do this for every shirt so you can imagine it takes a lot of time, with all the printing & folding etc; so hopefully you can see what goes into making our nursing tees and kinda see why they are extra special.
Without you guys buying our nursing shirts i wouldn’t be able to get my printing fix on, it’s SO satisfying making a great product & knowing you are making a persons day just that teeney weeney bit better (hope we are) . I really honestly appreciate all of you – go on give yourself a hug x
