**LEARN * ABOUT * OUR * PROCESS**
We silkscreen the traditional way, no machines just our 2 sets of hands (and occasionally our children's). Silkscreening is a method of pulling ink through a prepared screen/mesh onto an object (i.e. our tees), the ink flows through the empty space in the mesh (our applied design) leaving the image behind. It is a very old method of printing and one which we really love. We love screen printing shirts!!

Our tapestries are all hand drawn and painted on heavy black cotton. We begin with the drawing, next we use a few white layers of acrylic so that the last layers of UV colour really pop. It is a very long process, lasting many hours/days/weeks till the final piece is complete. Each piece is completely unique, we only do one of each design and painted with love.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
**ECO * COMMITMENT**
We love our environment and so we do our best to work efficiently and eco-friendly.
Our screens are always reused. Once a design is retired or worn out we clean/reuse the mesh and frame.
We only use non-toxic water based acrylic ink on our tees and tapestries and save excess ink for interesting one of kind prints.
We pre-wash our tees with biodegradable detergent and hang them to dry (weather permitting, we're in Ottawa and winter is pretty long).
Don't be surprised if your package comes in either brown paper or an upcycled mailer, it's our intention to create as little waste as possible while shipping your goods.

About

Video summary: Screen printing a new design

Keep it Strange

We all want to be seen, heard and loved. We want to be happy and free. We believe that through art, music and self expression we can achieve that love and freedom.

Our names are Rosie and Gill, humans, parents, free spirits, and creators of GROAdesign.

It can be easy in this time and place to lose our way, there are those who would extinguish your inner light. Those who strive to create sameness and the pursuit of meaningless fulfillment. In a world of the bland and boring rat race, don’t get caught in the grind. Break free! Keep it strange and express yourself.

What we create here is so much more than just graphic tees and UV art. We strive to create a feeling of confidence and freedom to express your passion and creativity -- freedom to share your inner light with the world! Freedom to explore new ideas, places and experiences.

Our mission is to help you to shine bright and enjoy this journey called life.

So get out there. Be unique. Be you. Be strange!!

Peace, love
Gill, Rosie & the GROAfamily

Care instructions

Silkscreen Shirts and Throw Pillows should be washed inside out either hang or machine dried.

Care instructions

Sunglasses Pouches should be spot cleaned or hand washed only.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our orders are shipped with a minimal amount of packaging, making them light and eco conscious. If you would like special wrapping just ask in messages.

Custom and personalised orders

We can do custom orders. If you like one of our designs but would prefer a different colour tee or ink just let us know, we'll make you your own listing.

Processing Time

We are a small operation, husband and wife team and often the shirts are printed to order, processing time is 5-7 days if we don't have your tee in stock and shorter if we do.

Tapestry

Our tapestries are one of a kind, hand painted therefore we do not accept returns or exchanges.

Returns and Exchanges

Returns and Exchanges happen but the buyer is responsible for shipping the order back, unless it was our mistake that led to the need to exchange/return (i.e. we sent the wrong item)
