New Duds Screen Printing and Illustration was started in 2008 by Torrey and Tessa, a husband and wife duo with a passion for print making and sewing. After two years of full time work post college they decided to take the plunge into self employment. New Duds opened their doors to their first shop in January 2008 and have grown into a 5 person business.

Aaron - Screen Print Production Assistant and Resident Giggler
Aaron David is our newest edition to the New Duds Team as the Screen Print Production Assistant. His main duties will focus on printing customer orders, but will also assist with other tasks around the shop. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking and Neon Glass Bending from The University of Wisconsin-Madison. While in school Aaron felt most at home while he was screen printing or bending glass in the Neon studio. Feeling that he has taken on the role of an Observer, Aaron's work speaks to the mental and emotional strain of mourning and realization. All of Aaron's most recent work can be viewed on his portfolio website.
