For the last couple of weeks we here, at Team Print Shop, have had the pleasure of helping two original artists make their visions become reality. We had a lot of fun helping Paul Solis and Griffin Mcpartland print different types of pieces for their respective shows. Frequent shop lurker Paul Solis held his show two weekends ago at the Oakland Surf Club. Paul's art does not disappoint and leaves you feeling as if you just experienced the virtual.
As stated by Paul in a recent interview on the Oakland Surf Club's website his show was about "being focused on detail and developing a floating structure that might be exploding but could be reforming at the same time. It’s abstraction trying so desperately to be representative of an object that never existed. It’s the unwinding of my mind and my therapy to wind it back together."

Last weekend our friend Griffin Mcpartland had some of his art on display at the Needles and Pens 10 Year Anniversary Show located at the iconic San Francisco Luggage Store Gallery. Along with Griffin's art the show featured work from a vast aray of other artists. We helped him print some colorful bandanas for the show.
Ben Franklin said that. He must not have had his parent's work at his print shop. Over the past week John's parents have been kickin it in Oakland. They came all the way from Erie, PA, a.k.a.'the Hawaii of PA' for the purpose of relaxing in beautiful West Oakland and helping out in the shop. Overall productivity went through the roof!
John's mom, seen above, got a little unmotivated when we started bumpin tunes. She said she won't be buying that new Ghostface album or any of the Screw mixes.

Thank you very much to John O. Ream III and Dianne for helpin out so much over the past week!
We here at Team Print Shop are very excited about the upcoming Summer 2013 Collection. Within the next month or so we will be dropping six new shirts. Therefore we have a special sale on all current shirts. For $30 we are offering a special mystery pizza box with any two shirts. If you are interested please see the online store. Supplies are limited.
To celebrate one of the best holidays of the year we bring you the Free Willie X Team Leaf t-shirt. Tomorrow we hope that you get your mellows on, watch some ancient aliens, and ponder about how rabbits can multiply but do not know math. These shirts are all printed on 100% cotton American Apparel style tees and are available in the online store. Stay cool fools!
It is no secret that finding Team Print Shop can be difficult. This is because we share the same address with another building that faces Magnolia St, while our shop is actually located inside a courtyard. We are glad to say that this problem has somewhat been resolved with our new sign.

The final product. Scope it on the corner of Magnolia & 24th.

This is the first postcard in our upcoming artist series. It measures 4.25 in x 5.5 inch and was printed on 100 pound light grey paper. The art was designed by Paul Solis, a frequent shop lurker. As stated on Paul's website, he brings "brings warmth and fear into the hearts of children and men while bringing love and kisses to all fair ladies".
