Meet CHEMlab – Creative Chemistry during Covid

If You Build It, They Will Come – The Small Business Owner’s Motto

All business is about taking risks. Every time I place an order for shirts, my mouth goes dry and I wonder if I should have ordered less. Every time I finish printing shirts, I second guess myself and wonder if anyone will buy them. No matter how many times I do this, I’m always pleasantly …

The SS18 Collection in progress

This week I finally started screen printing for Spring/Summer 2018. I had been itching to start ever since the boxes of shirts started arriving on my doorstep a few weeks ago, but I have been sick and germy. I’ve ordered more shirts and onesies than ever this year; I’m doing more markets than usual, and …
