Premium, Hand Printed Graphic Tees

The Reader

14 total reviews

If you take a look at Nick’s glass art, you’ll see these designs on his vessels and vases. We liked them so much we wanted them on shirts too.

Like our Cascading Leaves and Maple Leaf designs, this image is based on one of Nick’s original photographs. For the "leaves" designs, Nick first takes macro photos of different types of leaves, capturing their delicate lines and veins. Then these images are digitally edited to enhance the contrast and create transparencies, which are exposed onto the silkscreens. Next, they're handprinted onto the shirt fabric. In the case of "The Reader" design, things took a bit of a whimsical turn as we played around with superimposing the reading man, taken from another original photograph, into the leaf image.

*Special Note 👋🏽 We hand print every single graphic tee in our home studio in Toronto, Canada. To minimize waste, we only print tees once they are ordered. For this reason, it can take between 4-10 days to print, press and package a tee. But we do our very best to get orders out within 3-5 days (+ shipping times)! Shipping times depend on your location from Toronto, so the further away or the more rural the address, the longer it may take. Typically, shipping is 2-6 days within North America, and anywhere from 6-14 days worldwide.

Size Chart

Our unisex tees are a classic fit, with tailored sleeves and narrower silhouette. They are true to size, however, if you're in between sizes, choose the larger size. So, if you're a true medium, then grab a medium tee. If you're a medium that likes a little more room or sometimes goes for a large, pick the large in our tees.

Amazing Quality!

Just received The Reader t shirt for my son, and I LOVE it! So unique and such beautiful quality. Also love that this is a Canadian company! Thank you, Blackhare!

So far so good

Reviewing a t-shirt before the first wash is risky. But so far I love this one (worn once). I wish I could afford 5 or 6 more of your collection. It is nice, precise work. Du beau travail soigné! Continuez!
