The beauty of the DTG printer is that we can print just one. Yup, our minimum order is one. There's no setup fee, no burning multiple screens, no putting semi-used ink back into the bottle. This process is efficient, and because of that you don't have to run out of all your sized before you replish your sold out sizes. You don't have to guess what size or design will sell the quickest. In fact, you could just print one of every size, then when you sell that one, call us

Our 50th Entry

Small tasks that might seem inconsequential, mundane, or irrelevant can build up to be something brilliant, compelling, and momentus. We're chipping away at it here at Vertical Street. We order the shirts, we pretreat the shirts, we press the pretreatment into the shirts, we print the shirts, we cure the ink, we package the shirts, we deliver the shirts. Although sometimes the repetetiveness of our work appears robotic, the fact is -- we love it! We are passionate about s

Your best friend on a shirt

Hi everyone. We were thrifting last week and came upon this shirt (third picture), so although it's not a Vertical Street dtg shirt, it got us thinking about our friend susibdaviswatercolors.com who painted our shop dog Burl (second picture). Not only can Susi paint your pet (or favorite wild flower), but Vertical Street can then put it on a wearable piece of art for you (shirt, hoodie, tote). We can caption it, or not. You can take your friend with you where ever you g

See, Hear, Support

There's a fine line between earnestness and profiting from repression. This shirt has a black BLM fist on the front left chest, and "See, Hear, Support" on the back. We designed and printed one. A cool kid on a scooter named Chris pulled up and bought it for $10. We're willing to print more, but it would only be right if profits go to a good cause. If you follow this blog or our instagram, you've seen that we've been helping out a local black owned couture shop in Portla

Dragons on fire!

This graphic was supplied by a student @FIDM who is working on some fashion projects and ideas. The dragon is so popular, not just from the latest tv shows #gameofthrowns but for it's symbol of power and strength. #tattoos and prints with dragons are fire right now. Ultimately, I think this dragon might end up on a tie dye pullover, or a plain white pullover for this student's final take on East meets West. Either way, we love it! #fashion #fashionschool #merchandising #d

MAX

This image of the Portland MAX (Metropolitan Area Express) took some time. I have a full sized poster of the BART system in my garage that I got once when they were updating the maps. This is the kind of iconic image that lets people know where you're from, what you're about, and that you support mass transit. It's good for the earth! I thought about putting "PDX" or "MAX" on it, but I like it the way it is; a nod to locals, or something that needs no explaination. Rememb
