Tshirt Sneak Peek

A huge thank you to everyone who purchased a limited edition Reclaim tee. Even though I’ve always known that RH is awesome, it’s wonderful realizing again and again how many others think so too.

While the shirts are no longer available online, yesterday came the next step for Project Reclaim Swag: heading to Charlottesville, Va to meet with the printers. We wanted to finalize the sizing & spacing of the logo in person, as well as get an overall feel for how everything is going to come together.

Where the magic happens. :)

I’ve never actually seen how t-shirt printing works, so for me it was really cool to get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour. Tshirt Sneak Peek

Where pantone colors are mixed. How neat, right?

Playing with logos on the Ladies Cut Antique Cherry shirt.

The antique cherry is a little less ‘antique’ than I had originally imagined; there’s less pink, and more of a bolder, brick red feel. The color definitely grew on me right there in the shop- so excited for that one!

Indigo Blue shirts.

And then there’s the Indigo Blue shirts… hard to beat ’em. They’re a little more true to their picture: mellow blue meets slate gray. I may or may not be getting one in each color.

Hopefully collecting the shirts at the end of the week & then sending them out (along with a little surprise) shortly after that! Stay tuned.

How cool, right? I can’t get over how awesome everything looks. To get a bigger sense of the analogies at work, read Jim Groom’s awesome posts about them here, here and here.  (By the way, all of these were done by the brilliant Bryan Mathers.)

So keeping this look in mind, here’s our available shirt options:

Inside Reclaim Records

Reclaim Records is starting to get further fleshed out thanks to the latest installment from the great Bryan Mathers. I really love the colors in this one, not to mention the synchronization of all the details we’ve been working on from album covers, to the #ds106 coffee mug, to the awesome EDUPUNK poster (a work of art within the work of art), the smack-talking on Canada, and the figure behind the counter. The idea will be to switch the face of Reclaim—this one presumably me given the hairline and glasses—with caricatures of Tim and Lauren. Each of us behind the counter server up the goods. What this image makes me want more than anything else is a Reclaim storefront.

The idea of Reclaim Hosting as a kind of independent record label for ed-tech is an idea I’ve been playing with since a talk at Davidson College more than a year ago.
