Design By Kingteeshops has wrapped up their epic All-Over design contest Quarantine Lever 10th Grade Unlocked School Vintage shirt. Adding many new large print designs to their catalog’s already robust collection. Fans of the site will recall that they also boast a selection of from major pop culture behemoths like Star Wars and Marvel, so these new designs are in good company. Without further ado…Finger Jungle by MartaZubieta was the contest’s First Place winner, and it’s very cool to see such an eccentric piece rewarded. The mint and pink color palette feels fresh and summery, and also prevents the concept from veering into overly spooky territory. I like the way it combines the texture of the green area, which is so vaguely defined as to read equally well as seaweed, hair, or something else, with the almost optical illusion of the fingers that jut through the strings and reach out for the viewer. This is a repeating pattern, but done skillfully and printed at the perfect sizing so that most viewers will never notice the repeats.

Waterbase inks are as they sound, water-based Quarantine Lever 10th Grade Unlocked School Vintage shirt.This makes them eco-friendly and easy to clean up. The water is mixed with a dye or pigment and then evaporated during the drying stage of printing. You have a slight hand (soft feel) after printing with waterbase inks, but it becomes no-feel after its first wash. Water-based printing allows the ink to blend into the shirt instead of sitting on top of it. One downside of using waterbase inks is that they are less opaque, so the color of the shirt will influence the print itself. For example, a bright red ink on a black shirt will come out as a very dark red. Waterbase delivers the best results on white or very light colored shirts with dark colored inks. When printing lighter colored inks on dark colored shirts, the ink colors will change resulting in a more vintage look. Because of this we can’t guarantee color matching when using waterbase inks. Discharge is waterbase ink with an added bleaching agent. This allows us to print waterbase ink on dark garments by bleaching out the color of the shirt and replacing it with a new color.
