Levi’s® Striped Anchor Shirt

SNEAK PEEK!

We’re gearing up for an upcoming event with Levi’s® this mid-June where we will be customizing purchased items in-store using our very own Stencil1 stencils! More details to come. Here’s a little preview of what you can expect for the event.

Levi's T Shirt

Things you will need: Any T-shirt, paint and a paint brush, and a Stencil1 Small Image stencil.

Levi's T Shirt

Place the stencil of your choice on the shirt. We placed the 6 x 6 Anchor Stencil right above the chest area on the left. Use some tape, if necessary, on the top and bottom of the stencil to hold the stencil in place.

Using your brush, pick up some paint and dab the excess paint on a paper towel or plate. This will ensure that paint will not seep through under the stencil or through the shirt.

Once the paint is dry, carefully lift the stencil to reveal the final product!

Repeat throughout the shirt as much as you’d like! We decided to stop here and keep it minimal. This is a perfect way to amp up your wardrobe for the Summer.

Ed Roth Print Sold At Charity

Stencil1

I recently designed and donated a print to be sold at a Housing Works event DESIGN ON A DIME. The inspiration was champagne bubbles and was printed on gold metallic paper with a black ink.

We donated our print to 513 Design Studio, an award-winning, multi-disciplinary creative agency, and they created a booth with our print inside.

Follow up: MEET THE MAKERS Event

Stencil1 and Bloomingdales

As many of you know, Stencil1 had the opportunity to be a part of Bloomingdale’s Trunk Show event, Meet the Makers! This event was essentially an opportunity for three craftsmen from Brooklyn to showcase their brand and what their products stand for. Stencil1 creator Ed Roth set up art pieces and items like stencils, journals, hand-made prints, and shirts for guests to see and purchase.

Inspired by street art and a passion for DIY craft, Ed Roth started Stencil1 and evolved it into a cutting-edge design brand. His contemporary stencil work comes in all shapes and sizes, from clothing to furniture to wall art, and his books and TV appearances have inspired a new generation of DIYers to reinvent their clothes and homes.

Craftsmanship. It’s at the core of what we love-from a deftly tailored blazer to hand-burnished wingtips. In truth, our taste for finely crafted pieces goes well beyond wardrobes

Check out these photos from the event!

We would like to thank Bloomingdale’s for this amazing opportunity. It was an honor and one of a kind experience to be surrounded by fellow craftsmen, as well as the guests that supported us. Not to mention, it was a surreal to be placed next to the Burberry, Rag and Bone, and John Varvatos counters. We would also like to thank all of our fans who have supported us through out the years!
