Misprint Monday: Perfect Prints, Wrong G*&$#&%* Quantities

We printed some very cool shirts for premiums for WMBR which is a community radio station (that I happen to have two shows on for the past three years.) It is a great station which is all volunteer, and I have done the premiums for them for about 25 years. Things are almost always done right because in this case it isn’t about money, it is

It is a gift and a
