YokiAttitudes members will receive weekly our newsletter and be informed first about:

PACKAGING

Our packaging reflects our way of thinking. Keep it simple, beautiful and eco friendly.

All t-shirts are packaged inside the original Jiffy bag and by far the toughest postal bag - actually proven to get thicker the more it is used. Made entirely of recyclable and recycled material.

Our idea was to put Velcro stickers on the flap so that you can re-use this beautiful bag as a case for your iPad, or netbook, papers, keys and stuff in general. Hope you like our idea.

WHAT DOES SOLD OUT MEAN?

When you find the t-shirt you like to buy and your size says ‘Sold out’ that means that it is currently out of stock. That means that we cannot let you order it. But, what you can do is press on the link that says ‘Help us get this t-shirt reprinted. We’ll send you an email if it does’.

We only reprint designs after they receive a certain amount of requests from all of the users. If we reprint one of your requested tees you'll receive an email informing you. Some designs you have requested may never be reprinted while others are reprinted quickly, so make sure you're signed up for the Yoki attitudes newsletter where you'll be notified if and when reprints happen.

Keep in mind that we always print limited number of t-shirts in order to maintain the originality of our designs. We want to make sure what you get is a limited edition product!

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing is one of the early methods of printing. It involves the passing of ink or any other printing medium through a mesh or 'screen' that has been stretched on a frame, and to which a stencil has been applied. The stencil openings determine the image that will thus be imprinted.

Screen printing was a technique first used by the Chinese almost 2000 years ago. They used human hair stretched across a wooden frame to form the screen. To that they attached a stencil made from leaves stuck together into different shapes. This was probably the first application of screen printing ever.

Subsequently, the Japanese adopted the screen printing process and used woven silk to make the mesh and lacquers to make stencils. The use of silk is where screen printing got its alternative name – Silk screening or silk screen printing.

In 1907, it was Samuel Simon near Manchester who patented the first ever industrial screen printing process. Many years later close to the First World War, John Pilsworth of San Francisco developed the Selectasine method, which basically introduced the concept of multi-color printing using the same screen. Different areas on the screen were blocked out for different color inks, thus resulting in a multi-colored image. This technique became hugely popular for printing signs and posters in large quantities.

From using hair to silk to polymer meshes, screen printing has come a long way today. The basic technique remains the same…
