When I was a kid, my dad’s old roommate owned an underground T-shirt shop in Minneapolis. In those kinds of shops the t-shirts were made to order, you’d go in the shop and flip through these massive albums of artwork featuring bands, movie stars, naked women, funny sayings or just cool art that could be transferred onto any color & style shirt of your choice. When his shop closed he let me rummage through and pick out any designs I wanted.
Decades later I began collecting vintage iron ons and naturally I thought it would be cool to try and find a way to get some of those old fashioned iron ons made. They’re made with real plastisol screen printing ink, not modern inkjet sublimation prints. I’ve found a place who still makes them in the old way. So expect to see some of your favorite Dark Age Productions artists immortalized in vintage iron on transfer form! You’ll be able to put these designs onto any 100% cotton items you want, like: shirts, jean jackets, fabric tote bags… and have a one of a kind DIY item depending on what you decide to put it on.
The first iron on I’ve had made is the original DAP wizard, just to test out the idea and make sure it works with a humble $10 home clothing iron and not needing a professional heat press machine to apply the designs. It works, just like the vintage designs did.
If you’d like a DAP wizard iron on you can pick one up here. More designs to be announced soon!
