Announcement   UPDATE: 5/01/17 I apologize for any delays in getting orders out. I took a little time to be with my family in the Philippines to send off and honor my father who passed away last week. I am back in the States and working to get all orders printed and shipped as soon as possible.
Thank you to everyone for sending love and light, and for your understanding.
I LOVE YOU!!! xoxo

∆ 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

♥ 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.

I contacted the seller about making me two custom t-shirts (I wanted quotes in her shop, just on different shirts and with different colored letters). Not only did the seller accommodate, but the turn around was fast, the shirts are gorgeous and of a good quality. I highly recommend this seller and I will return when I need another shirt. :)

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.
