Plastic Bag Recycling

We love recycling here at New Duds! We have been working hard to keep plastic out of the landfill. Plastic bags and film are the hardest thing to recycle because they clog up most municipal equipment. Small household quantities can be taken to your local grocery store. We have recently been in touch with several grocery stores and local businesses to figure out how to recycle our medium quantities. Just say no to plastic!

WELCOME AARON!

Aaron - Screen Print Production Assistant and Resident Giggler

aaron

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.

Our New Dryer!

Welcome Big Blue! With this new, larger dryer, we are now able to cure the ink more quickly and on more shirts at once. This means we can take on additional printing jobs and still complete your order just as fast or faster than before. New equipment is so fun!

Collaboration

Since Moving in to our new shop in Winooski back in January, Matt and I have gotten to collaborate on a few projects together. Being in similar fields (textiles), we have a lot of overlap with customers coming in and out of the shop. These projects are really what interested us the most about being in a shared space together. To date this is one of the coolest jobs we have done together.

One of our shared clients, Seven Days, came by looking for a pennant string. You know those cheesy, plasticy things that are often time at bars or parties. He was having trouble finding one that looked nice and durable, something he could use for years to come. Matt and I both hopped on board pretty quick, as 7D have treated us both very well in the past, and it was a great excuse to make a great product together.

Check out the process photos below!

Headed to the cutter. We had a custom die made for these. The shape is the same as the petals on 7D's flower.

A wonderful stack of colors. I love the white edging that shows through. Multiples always get me, something that drew me to printmaking in the first place.

Getting them in order. We did alternating colors and sides. You can see that in the last picture.

Matt's machine has a great attachment for binding, it folds and sews the webbing at the same time.
