About

LS-Drew Graphics, "kitchen-table" humble beginnings

I started changing photos I had printed in fine art non-silver processes to fabric screenprints--1, 2, 3, or 4 colors--in the late 1980's. The challenge was often to simplify a softer, more continuous-tone image into a high-contrast & more colorful screenprint. I had recently become fascinated by how layered colors printed on fabric looked. I started printing on white shirts and allowing that aspect to help transparent colors show through better.
(Must have been my earlier watercolor-painting training as well). I had a few influences from Pop Art to guide me, it seemed very natural since I grew up looking at those kinds of prints. I must add that we didn't have the internet to rely on back then, for marketing or even showing our work to others until 1996, and it was rudimentary at that point.
I took a break from my fabric screenprinting from 1998-2005 for various reasons, including attending graduate school. I then re-started my business with the intent to really get my stuff out there. I have more recently incorporated dyeing into my repertoire, I find I really love doing it; and printing on colored fabric is now much more appealing and sells better too. I am currently a one-person shop working from home (with a day job too), which I have always done since the beginning, and I'm absorbing more about this process and its challenges every day.

    I am a printmaker/designer/dyer. I love printing on different colored fabrics. I usually use screenprinting (and sometimes relief printing) and a variety of processes to achieve my original imagery on T-shirts and scarves.

Currently I accept Pay Pal and money orders.
Please make money orders payable to Laurel Schwass-Drew.
Shipping
I always ship either USPS Priority with Delivery Confirmation
(costs a little more, but it's worth it; it can be tracked) or UPS.
If you prefer UPS delivery only, please specify.
Any other shipping upgrades or needs like insurance will be priced accordingly.
**Please make sure your shipping address is accurate and complete!
Deadlines: I aim to ship within 7-10 days of receipt of your order. ***Please note that I have a full-time job elsewhere, so occasionally there may be a short delay, as I tend to print in small quantities at any give time; patience and pre-planning will be appreciated! If the delay in filling your
order is expected to be substantial, you will be notified.
International customers are responsible for paying their own customs duties, taxes, or fees at their location.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and exchanges are possible, provided you return the garment to me in original clean and unworn condition, pre-paid and insured within 30 days. COD returns cannot be accepted. Shipping charges cannot be refunded. *Please contact me prior to any returns or exchanges.
Additional policies and FAQs
I recommend that customers follow the posted and enclosed washing instructions for longer garment image life. Water based inks are designed to sit down into the fabric they are printed on, giving a vintage look over time. Harsh laundering practices, like using hot water and a hot dryer, may speed that process up.
I often print on overdyed garments; the nature of these include being unique and variable from dyelot to dyelot.
I have now done some of my own shirt over-dyeing as well--please wash these garments separately or with like colors (never with white or light colors!) as some residual dye bleeding may occur, as is to be expected. Also, due to
differences between photos, cameras, computer screens, etc., shirt and printed image colors may appear slightly different than the actual physical shirt colors or ink colors.
I am open to: doing smaller custom orders within reasonable timeframes (emphasis on smaller and reasonable, as I currently have a full-time job elsewhere), and wholesale and/or consignment opportunities. Please message me with your specifics about these, if this interests you.
