About this FieldTrip

You will get to see the inner workings of a screen printing and promo company and how merch gets made from start to finish. You will to try on some different tees and then print a FieldTrips or CreativeMornings shirt.

It feels like the the printing industry is becoming more and more commodified and less and less personal and we often miss out on the actual craft behind it. Sure a shirt is a shirt, and a tote bag is just a tote bag, but how does the print feel, and is the tee-shirt that you picked online a tee-shirt that you will always keep, or one that will go in to your donation box? I have been screen printing for about 20 years and have pivoted many times from just a screen printer, to offering live printing at events, to offering custom stores. In the end, I just love watching someone see their logo on a product for the first time. It never gets old.
