It's been a while since our last update. (We did not have as much time as we would want to focus on our baby). Nonetheless, we did some progress.
As a part of moving printing operations in-house, we have completed DIY printing press and are now busy mastering our printing skills.

You can read more about it on our hubzilla channel (link below).

It's been a while since our last post (we promise to do better job next time). The last weeks we did not have as much time to devote to our lovely poroject as we initially planned to. Nonetheless we have done some progress. Our DIY printing press is complete and we have started with some sample prints using some random screen we had lying around. This means we are getting closer and closer to fully equipped and working printing workshop. At this moment we are beginning to build Screen washing and water filtraction facility which is neccecary when dealing with inks, slikscreen and lots of cleaning. In the meantime we start mastering our printing skills, printing on any piece of fabric we can find around us.

As soon as we can we will resume printing shirts, bags and all other merch. In the mean time have a look at our shop, there is still bunch of shirts back from the initial badge.

In past two weeks we've worked on cleaning a mountain of garbage from our new workshop. We had to let all the arcade cabinets go to make up some extra space (we hope new owners will bring them back to life which is something we did not manage due to lack of time).

We've gathered most of the material needed to build our very own DIY printing carousel. In the coming two weeks this is what we will focus on. We hope to be ready to make our first test prints by the end of the process.

While researching equipment we need to purchase for our new workshop, we've stumbled upon DIY Printing Press carousel. We wouldn't feel well if we would just ignore it. So instead of buying cheep crap or investing thousands of euros in proffesional equipement, we are going full DIY. Below you can find a link to the website with plans.

Hi guys.

Finally, we are back on track. We are starting our shirt printing production in our own place. 100% DIY. As you can see on the picture its a huge mess. A lot of work is still ahead of us, but once its all done it will be a joy to start printing again. We cant wait!

But first, big cleanup!

Trendy clothes are cheaper than ever. That sounds great for the people who buy them, but it's horrible for the people who make them.

Hi guys! We're back!
We're testing hubzilla to mastodon federation, but we arent sure those posts are visible to everyone even when re-shared by this account. Can you people see reshares from this account from last few days and recent from about hour ago?

#aptgetshirt #fairwear #livingwage

We've started this project to create nice looking #swag to promote #FLOSS projects out there (even the smallest ones), and to share the profits form sold #merchandise with those projects. Some of you might remember us from last year's campaign where we crowdfunded and produced some #shirts. Due to other priorities and some complications, we had to suspend the project for some time, until today. During the last weeks we've been working on setting up our new web-shop and preparing for the re-launching of the project.

Especially for the re-launch all shirts are now 10% off! As always 50% of the profit will be shared with the projects each #t-shirt represent. Our shirts are made from #fair-trade #organic cotton where decent living wages are paid to the workers. Our designs are hand #silkscreen printed using water-based inks, giving the best quality, no peeling nor plastic feel.

Soon after the crowd-funding campaign we've realized that outsourcing the shirt printing process is very expensive when producing for such a niche market (unfortunately #FOSS folks ain't mainstream). Especially when we want to be able to produce small amounts for the tiniest projects out there. We are now able to use a small friendly silk screen print-shop which is great as long as it lasts - sadly, gentrification will soon force closure upon that location. Our goal and most desired situation is to run a small scale print-shop in our own home workshop. Therefor any initial profits from the relaunch will go into the equipment we need to become fully independent, allowing us utter freedom which is the fuel for real creativity.

We hope this time around we will manage to be more determent, more active and make the project a long lasting success with new (surprising) designs for more projects.


For the ones who ordered a shirt - seems like our little surprise is too hidden and sometimes overlooked. Please open the package gently and look well indside.

Our T-shirts are finally out! The pre-order batch is sent and we managed to order some extra shirts to have on stock, ready to be shipped as new orders come in. This concludes our campaign. However, the amount of shirts that were ordered during this period was not exactly as high as we wished for which forces us to really think about the future of the project.


We will transfer the donations once we are done with all the shipping hassle

Yesterday i finally brought my arcade cabinet back home. It needs some serious renovation.

Here is an overview of shirts sold during the campaign and the donations to the relevant projects:

Our campaign has reached its end.

It's been great four weeks, full of new experiences. The result is a bit below what we were aiming at, but since this is our first time launching a project this way, we are pleased with what we have achieved; we reached so many and we got a lot of positive feedback.

While we wait for to process our funds, it is still possible to pre-order via our online shop till 7 Of May.
