Misprint (Mis-fire) Monday – Fine Art or Quilt Square? Marilyn Monroe style.

Sometimes you can do a great job and everything is perfect and it all may not be a mis-print but it may result in a “mis-fire.” Twice we set up to reproduce Richard Avedon photos of Marilyn Monroe on a black shirt. Both times we did some of our best work we have ever done on a photographic reproduction. Both times after receiving the sample and the customer even loving them they ultimately said, “we decided not to do t-shirts.” We may have got paid for sampling, but you can never really get paid enough for that level of effort. No production runs resulted, just a really nice square on a quilt my Mom sewed beautifully for me…
