We are very pleased to now have our PHILA/PENNA t-shirts available in the Pennsylvania General Store in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Pick one up today for the holiday season! They’re designed by us in Philly, screen-printed in Pennsylvania, super comfortable, and the shirts are Made in the USA.

This is the latest news in our most recent self-initiated studio project! Stay tuned — We’re hoping to get some in their downtown Reading Terminal Market location as well, but for now, you’ll have to visit their Chestnut Hill store. Their Chestnut Hill store address is 8518 Germantown Ave., Phila., Penna. 19118. Their hours are Monday – Saturday (10 AM to 6 PM); Sunday (11 PM to 5PM).

Some photos below of the store-front, our custom tags and shirt labels, and our shirts in their store. Enjoy!

No, really. 70-some kind people had requested that my PHILA/PENNA shirt be brought back up on CottonBureau’s website. We can’t complain. It’ll be available for purchase over the next two weeks. Thanks for taking a look… You can PURCHASE PHILA/PENNA HERE!

We recently letterpressed our latest batch of business cards with Two Paperdolls in Wayne, PA. It’s a 2-color letterpress over a blind hit of our logo – creating a de-bossed effect. Check out more info at Beauty of Letterpress.

About a month or so ago now, I posted about my Phila/Penna (Philadelphia/Pennsylvania in case you didn’t know the abbreviations or aren’t from around here) shirt design I had accepted by CottonBureau… I just got a look at the final printed shirts and couldn’t be happier. Great printing, a comfortable shirt – all backed by wonderful service.

So proud of the design and I need to thank each and every person who purchased a shirt to help me reach my minimum order goal. Some folks have missed out on the two-week order window and asked how they can get one, so I put the design on my Society6 store page. Feel free to order the one-color design here for yourself or anyone you may know that is from Philadelphia or Pennsylvania. Thanks, in advance, for looking and for the support! Link and photo below:
