Cassette – additional info
Awards are Thesis Sahib and Funken. Their new EP is called Futuristic Jokes. The Canadian (Thesis) and Frenchman (Funken) became friends through tour soon after became music collaborators. Their first collaborations appeared on Thesis Sahib album Before The End and from this they formed AWARDS. The lyrical portion of Futuristic Jokes was written by Thesis over an extended tour of art and music shows in 2010. His travels to California, Halifax, Sweden and Switzerland provided the inspiration for the writing which eventually took to song in the studio with Funken in Tours, France, of 2011. Funken created all of the music and instrumentation and was joined on a few songs by his friends who happen to be some of the most interesting musicians currently creating in France. Cassette comes with a download card!

Printing process by ZBQ
These shirts were printed using 2 distinct screen printing processes to produce a full color image on almost any color of shirt. First a base coat of discharge ink is laid down to make a white background upon which the other colors will be printed. Discharge is technically not an “ink”- it is a relatively new process that uses a bleach-like substance to remove, or discharge, the dye out of the cotton. Once that process is complete 4 colors of process ink are printed on top to create the image. Obviously there are a lot more than 4 colors in this image, but by using 4 distinct semi-transparent colors – black, cyan, magenta and yellow, we can emulate just about any color imaginable by combining them using a separation process in Photoshop. The result is as close as you can get to a full color screen print on a t-shirt.

The print may have a certain stiffness before it’s washed, as the discharge tends to need a wash or 2 to really loosen up and the process ink is a plastisol base and will also soften considerably after washing.  As with most printed t-shirts, to extend the life of the print it is recommended not to dry it in a dryer.
