I have sold my screen printing equipment and have decided to switch directions with my creativity. I am now developing my skills in photography and videography. Please follow me at Indigenous Alaskans on WordPress or on my Facebook page of the same name. I can also be found on Twitter under @indigenousAK.
Some exciting changes are in the works. More info soon.
My good friend George designed the graphic for the Alaska Masters Swimming group and I did the printing. This was a rush order and I learned a valuable lesson about shipping USPS. What was supposed to be 1-3 day priority turned into 7 days and poor tracking system. On the flip side I did get the order complete and delivered in time to another satisfied customer!
Anyone going to celebrate small business Saturday by making an order on some custom screen printed shirts!?
They look good on the rack but would look better on someone’s back!
My most recent order came from a friend who owns the Urban Dance Studio in Kenai, Alaska. She wanted shirts for her dancers to wear at their recital. Because the orange ink was a bit thick, I used some curable reducer that I purchased from Ryonet. This made the ink easier to work with and it went onto the shirt more smoothly.
Mom liked the shirts I did for the tribe and since the site coordinator gave me the rights to the graphics, I made up a shirt for mom.
Due to the rising cost of fuel, I recently traded in my truck for a car. Because of this, I was able to go from 13 miles per gallon to over 30 miles per gallon. I miss my truck but am enjoying the economical driving that the car offers, especially at $4.58 per gallon for regular gasoline!
Here is an order that I just finished for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe’s K’beq’ Interpretive site in Cooper Landing, Alaska. The shirts are labeled with a footprint of a black bear (elt’eshi), brown bear (ggagga) and outline of a salmon (luq’a). Below the graphic is the Dena’ina Athabaskan word for each. These shirts are for sale at their gift shop at the site.
Here’s a sample of the order that I just did for some friends who are distributors for Advocare. Check out their website at http://www.midnightsunhealthandwealth.com. The colors were great on this combination!
