Wow! We are excited to put up new designs from So So Rific and The Horror. We reformatted the store pages so that you can see the actual shirts rather than just graphic representations. Here's a rundown of the new shirts:

-Crazy Like Swayze. Was he crazier in Roadhouse or Footloose? Only $15.

-Octopussy. This one was popular at RecFest this last weekend when it made its debut. People have really liked the lime color and the offset graphic. $15.

-Silent Film Stars. Stripes! $15.

-Dance Your Balls Off. Isn't the left one supposed to hang lower? $15.

-Golden Shower. Nothing like a golden shower in the morning to get you going. $15.


We hope to have more soon! For now, browse around and check out all of the changes.

Last weekend we were at Salt Lake's first RecFest. We were a little disappointed with the turnout, but considering all the other things going on in Salt Lake on Saturday (Strut Your Mutt, Project337, Living Traditions), we kind of expected it. Here are some pics. It was a nice day to sell some shirts.

Though it's been a long time since our last post, Octopus Ink is still going strong. We're still here for all your printing needs. In case you are new to the site, here's a little bit about us:

- First and foremost, we are screen printers. We love what we do. We specialize in one and two-color designs and offer American Apparel for their fit and quality.

- We also feature a retail store that carries the classic O logo tee for only $6 along with some other great goods from Public Goods, The Horror and So So Rific.

- We dig t-shirt culture, so we are always on the lookout. Feel free to send us a link to your site or point us towards something cool. T-shirt culture isn't only t-shirts--it's design, art, fashion and music.

Thanks for stopping in!

Here's a cool video with cool t-shirts.

Some great prints from Kinsey (creator of the DC shoe logo) for sale at BLK/MRKT.

The MoMA Store has some great gift ideas--from the funky to the traditional.

Check out the 'Gifting Direction Guide' at NotCot.com. If you can't find something there for everyone on your list, you need new friends.

Also its partner in crime, NotCot.org, is an open directory of cool--featuring everything from bracelets made from chopsticks to paper drum sets.
