With the start of a new semester at Whittier College, an upcoming Open House and Rush Event to plan for, it’s amazing that the ladies of the Athenian Society also found the time to design and work with us on their new custom screen printed apparel. The Athenian Society is made up of a distinguished group of women whose activities emphasize sisterhood, social events, service to the community, and scholarship. Members are involved in many different on and off campus activities, all of them resulting in the development of a strong sisterhood bond. There are currently 30 members with 14 expected to graduate in Spring ’14. Along with attending classes and keeping up with their studies, the ladies of the Athenian Society are also involved in various extracurricular activities at Whittier College. These include, but are not limited to: Residential Life, QCTV, Choir, Tennis, ASWC Senate, Program Board, Dance Team, K-POET Radio, the Acropolis, Students for Education Reform and Alpha Phi Upsilon.
We had the pleasure of working with them on their screen printed “A 1929 <3” v-neck t-shirts. The project began with a search for the perfect green garment in the style and cut they were looking for. They chose the Emerald Bella Triblend V-Neck T-Shirt, with an opaque and vibrant white front print. In order to prevent the print from cracking when stretched, we added a stretch additive to our white plastisol ink, a process we perform for all of our screen printed ladies garments. Their follow-up apparel was the “On Wednesdays We WeAr Green” Crewneck Sweatshirt. It was printed on a Forest Green Gildan Heavy Blend Crewneck Sweatshirt, with an opaque and vibrant white front print. These 50/50 blend sweatshirts were screen printed with a polyester friendly plastisol ink to limit any dye migration.
Here are some photos of the Athenians sporting their new gear at Whittier College’s Fall Activities Fair.
