Each event is capped at 25 purchasers.
What You’ll Do
With ultra-hip illustrations bedecking its predesigned tees, totes, and posters, plus clients including the band Gorillaz, there’s no question that Fallen Arrows is cool on the outside. But it’s cool on the inside, too, guided by a green philosophy that incorporates recycling and upcycling materials. You’ll experience both sides of the shop during a two-hour workshop led by owner Tito Sands, during which you’ll print two of your own T-shirts to take home.
Get Acquainted with the Business of Printing
The workshop begins with a digital printing demonstration, using the studio’s direct-to-garment printer, and incorporates an explanation of how the business operates.
Make a “Wastage Wash” Shirt
Excess ink produced by those direct-to-garment printers is diluted with water and softeners, and you’ll use the solution to dye your Wastage Wash shirt with tie-dye-style techniques.
Make a “Salvage” Shirt
You’ll pick a shirt from the studio’s heap of extras, then use a heat press and a plastisol transfer to customize it with a new design.
Owner, Fallen Arrows
At Fallen Arrows, Tito and his team print everything from T-shirts to baby clothes to posters. The best part is there’s no catch—customers can order just one custom-printed tee or a thousand, depending on their needs. CommonCreativ ATL has interviewed Tito, The Guardian has spotlighted the business, and Gorillaz has commissioned some merch. It’s little wonder that the shop has garnered such applause, considering its flexible customization services, eco-friendly practices, and line of artist-designed ready-to-wear apparel—whose subjects encompass everything from Fela Kuti fandom to intergalactic, neo-futurist collages.
