Really insightful. Taught by a well known designer and figure in the street wear and fashion world, Jeff Staple, his brand Staple being one of the hottest out there for a while now. He covers everything you need to know, from design, branding, print process, down to what documents and information you would need to send to the factory/manufacturer if you were producing larger lines.
Jeff Staples provides a great overview of how to make T shirts and create a T shirt business. Would love a follow-up class on more details of each step of the process.
In 1997, jeffstaple walked into the Triple Five Soul boutique in New York City and received his first order of 12 silkscreened t-shirts – and Staple was officially open for business. What started as a small t-shirt line handmade by jeffstaple, who was then a student at Parsons School of Design, grew organically and began to gain visibility in the city. In the process of building this burgeoning brand, Nike hired jeffstaple in 2005 to create a special sneaker to represent New York. The Staple Pigeon icon was conceived and was branded on the heels of a limited (and now most coveted) 150 pairs of the popular Dunk Pro SB, leading to much fanfare upon its release and exposing sneaker culture, and Staple, to the masses. The Staple Pigeon is now a world renowned symbol which reflects the gritty and reckless energy New Yorkers (and all urban dwellers) possess. It not only exists as a representation of New York but is also the influence behind Staple’s extensive apparel range and collaborative products distributed in the top retailers across the globe. Inspired by street culture and design, Staple’s reach encompasses many different landscapes such as music, art, and fashion.
17+ years later, Staple continues to be a positive social contagion.
