    It's a terrible picture, I tried to get the faded, old look. It looks great in person but in the picture you cant tell! I'll have to try and get another picture.

    Actually depending on the episode, he is an importer/exporter or an architect.

    I actually made my own press for now. Just a side project I'm doing to learn more about the process, eventually I plan to offer it as a service at my shop.

    Any suggestions for the future?

    Like your T-shirts they look great, you have good sense of design, good to see.

    Nice work for the first time!

    For a better photo, have a voluptuous model wear the shirt, and take the photo outside in open shade sunlight to get the best photo (see example).
