Description

Circuit Board Neckie, Reflective Ink Printed Tie. Our circuit board print ties just got even better - now with retroreflective lens printing ink! You know the fancy pants reflective prints that usually live on your jogging shoes and safety gear? Now you can rock it on a tie! Even more fun? It's a flash photo disruptor! When someone shoots a flash photo, people get blacked out and little else shows up except your AMAZING TIE. Haha, prankster.

The grey print on emerald, charcoal black fabrics is very subtle until exposed to a direct bright light, led flashlight or camera flash. Be stealth... and then flashy!

• Pattern: Circuit board print.
• Fabric: Soft vegan microfiber
• Print size: ~18" from bottom point.
• Tie Size: Choose standard, narrow, skinny or XL.
• Printing ink: Retro-reflective grey non-toxic, waterbased ink.
• Tie Color: Emerald, black, or charcoal.
• Care: Gently hand wash, spot clean or dry clean.
• Creases and folds? Gently iron medium.

This is a real circuit board pattern. We sleuthed the provenance of this vintage screen to the best of our knowledge. It appears these were for small CRT displays/control monitors in the mid-80's. See the full story of our vintage circuit board designs - with video!

Shown: Reflective grey on emerald, charcoal and black. Hand printed in the USA in our Detroit, Michigan studio.

►THE MAKING OF:

We sleuthed the provenance of this vintage screen to the best of our knowledge. It appears these were for small CRT displays/control monitors in the mid-80's. When fabricating actual circuit boards, silkscreens are used to print etch-resistant inks on to the board to protect the copper foil. Subsequent etching removes the unwanted copper and one is left with the desired copper pattern for conductivity.

LIMITED EDITION! As is the nature of vintage screens, once these screens die, that's it. (Not knowing the emulsion it was made with, they might hold up for a week, they might last for years!)
