Vintage style Fireworks Poster

Vintage style Fireworks Poster

I love old vintage packaging and labels, and was inspired to print a poster in with that style in mind. This 5 color poster was hand pulled, one color at a time. Normally, with paper printing, there is a lot of prep work that goes into the artwork before making the screens. Trapping and bleeding the colors to ensure a good tight registration (which is almost impossible to be perfect). 

If you look at old packaging, and labels, there were either no trapping, or a huge bleed. To get that same printed feeling, with this poster, I added no bleed, and only trapped a couple of areas in the design. 

I loved the way this came out, and plan on selling these posters as a limited edition run, all signed and numbered on my personal website jeff-meadows.com , so check it out and get one for a friend or for yourself!

Custom Hang Tags

Custom Hang Tags

If you are selling your shirts and apparel online, or in a retail environment. Consider getting some cool hand printed hang tags done. They are perfect for branding your image or logo, and making your product stand out above all the rest.  They can also be printed on both sides, and adding care instructions for tagless shirts can be really Nifty too. For a little extra cost, these custom tags give your printed gear that extra Nifty value. 

Color is everything!

When it comes to design, I believe color is just as important as the design itself. Just like when you are painting your house, it is sometimes a tedious process to get the perfect color for your designs. The last thing you want when working with a printer, is to get a batch of prints with the wrong print color!

With the use of Green Galaxy "Fusion" Mixing system, Nify can get as close to your custom PMS colors as humanly possible. The "Fusion" system matches the Solid Uncoated Pantone color book guide. Please refer to the Solid Uncoated Pantone Formula Guide when doing your design work in Illustrator, Photoshop, or whichever program you create your design in. 

Although the "Fusion" system is the most accurate on the market, there are always limitations and discrepancies. The color of the fabric is just one element that may cause slight variations to printed substrates. 

Color proofs can be supplied via email, or phone texts at no extra charge to Nifty clients. Unlike most print shops, I do NOT charge a fee for color matching.

Had a blast working on these Str8 Flame shirts for Tree Kastle. This is a great example of how bright the Green Galaxy water based inks work on a nice 100% Cotton garment.
