Announcement   UPDATE: At this time I will not be offering American Apparel clothing, so sorry about that! I'm not sure how long this will be as they are transitioning to Gildan and I need to see if they will still offer the same great styles. For now I'm transitioning to Bella&Canvas, an amazing company that offers similar styles as AA and other beautiful options that I'm excited to work with!! xoxo

Love is Love 💗❤💜💛💚💙🖤🌈New tanks and long sleeves for your Valentines!
♥ Wear your Heart on your Shirt ♥ I uniquely stencil/hand print each shirt myself using a homemade silk screen. There will be variations in print placement and color intensity that adds to the uniqueness of every item.

About

Neena Creates.... For the Hopeless Romantic ❤

My craft story begins with finding a tutorial on how to screen print. I stumbled on a very homemade process and although it was time consuming, I fell in love with it! Let me give props to Craftgrrl for posting this- https://bitly.com/KsII5r
Here's my quick version:

♢ After I sketch out my design I'll trace it onto my homemade screen.
♢ Next I use a non water-soluble glue to cover the negative space (the area I don't want the ink to go through).
♢ Once my screen has dried I use a stencil brush to print onto a t-shirt, tank, scarf, etc.

Using this printing technique to apply the ink provides different results, sometimes not always perfect, however I personally like some imperfections so that it shows it was made by me. I do have a few traditional silk screens that I use but I find that I have found my voice through this style of printing.

Ultimately I hope to inspire love, romance, peace, honesty, creativity and confidence that all lies within ❤ Penelope

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

∆ Please send a convo to inquire about custom quote/design orders.

∆ If you are interested in a quote/design that I already have printed onto another style shirt or color, I can accommodate.

Care instructions

∆ To ensure that the design lasts longer, I recommend washing your shirts in a cold water wash (regular or gentle cycle), and hang to dry.
