I’m Not Printing 5 Shirts So You Can Pretend You’re Harry Potter for a Weekend

A screen printer must show restraint when a muggle places a measly order.




I’m Not Printing 5 Shirts So You Can Pretend You’re Harry Potter for a Weekend

Things you wanted to say to frustrating clients, but didn’t.

“Sorry, Karen.”

I am absolutely not interested in printing your Harry F’ing Potter shirts for your Disney trip. Our minimum is 24 not 5. No, your money isn’t green; it doesn’t spend the same. I don’t care if we charge you 100 bucks per shirt. We aren’t doing it.

Woulda Coulda Shouldas are collected from the Screen Printing‘s Brain Squad and shared anonymously.
