Come Discharge Printing

This week Bl,est has been playing around in the workshop with a new technique (to us) known as discharge printing. By screening a paste-like bleach onto the tee and then steaming out, the tee is left with a bleach stain design. She Bites (black) and Thy Greatest Cross are two current designs that will feature this technique.

As of now, all Bl,est Tee’s will include an inside print of authenticity. It’s a little extra work, but will feel that it’s well worth it.
