Southern Holiday Life Magazine

Located in Wedowee, Alabama, Southern Holiday Shop is a unique gift shop, clothing boutique and a member of the Funky Junk Trail. Kelly Caldwell, the Editor in Chief, came to us wanting us to print her 2016 summer design for their hip southern shop. We coached them on creating high resolution graphic files for us to work with. Because Comfort Colors was backordered through the manufacturer, she located the shirts through Jiffy Shirts and delivered them to us for printing.

Printing on Comfort Colors can be challenging for some screen print shops because of the dye process used in making the shirts. At normal curing temperatures dye tends to migrate into the ink. By using One Stroke Inks’ Extremely Low Temperature Plastisol Ink, we are able to eliminate this issue and create vibrant opaque colors which are soft to the touch.

On this order, Kelly wanted a faded/washed out appearance to go along with the faded dye look of the Comfort Color shirts. We used the ELT Ink from One Stroke Inks, and thinned it down with a reducer so that it would permeate the material and give it a softer hand.
