One of my favorite stickers we’ve printed is from a 1905 billhead from Bittner, Hunsicker & Co. The Allentown, Pa., company made hoisery, knit goods and overalls. I own two of the original billheads and have done some high-resolution scanning and digital cleaning to produce an image that is suitable for a T-shirt.
As this was a sticker for my daughter’s etsy store, I decided to let her sell the T-shirt as well. Not only is this fair, it is necessary. Madeline is returning to school. This fall she will enroll at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health to pursue a PhD in Infectious Diseases and Microbiology.
And so she will be dirt poor again. So stickers and T-shirts to the rescue.
The “Never Despair – Nothing Without Labour” shirt is printed on a 100 percent cotton American Apparel shirt that is made in California. The T-shirt is short sleeved, asphalt colored and available in sizes from small to 4X. The shirt is $25 (with a $2 upcharge for 2X and larger) plus shipping. The shirt is available worldwide.
You can order the shirt here.
If you experience trouble (you shouldn’t), please do not email Lost Art Press – they can’t help you. Contact Maddy through her etsy store and she will take care of you.
