At BAAK’s, we’ve been designing and silkscreening our t-shirts for a long time for local events. These creations are a testimony of our mindset at one moment, so it’s offered in limited series. YOU encouraged us to keep putting our ideas on such t-shirts, so today we’re proud to introduce BAAK Collector :
Every month, our craftsmen will create a new design. We chose a pre-order system in order to adjust the quantities produced and zero-waste. Our silkscreened tee-shirts will be shipped twice a month. Available in limited series, it’s the opportunity to acquire a piece that will never be manufactured again.
What is silkscreen printing ?
Silkscreen is a popular printing technique that consists in placing a screen between the ink and the support. First, we create a design in line with our graphic universe. This design is then materialized on a polyamide screen (which used to be silk screen) mounted on an aluminium frame. Then the t-shirt is set up flat and the screen is placed on the t-shirt. Now we can apply the ink on the screen, it will be applied on the shirt. Then we simply have to dry the ink, and your t-shirt is ready!
We use this traditional technique, but most people us more modern printing techniques nowadays. It lets us have a full autonomy on our Collector models creation and silkscreen any support that is flat.
