Who is THE
ART SCHOOL COLLECTIVE?

We are a creative group of professional individuals that strives to bring a renaissance to the apparel industry.  

Our idea is to build a sustainable loop in our environment, artistic and personal community. Art School Collective is a lightning rod for like-minded people, through the craft-prints™ we create.

WE MAKE LIMITED EDITION CRAFT PRINTS

That means there is only a limited number of the item and they are printed lovingly by hands. Many internet t-shirt brands state they are a ‘limited edition’. However, they reprint the item and they don’t say how many are in each edition. 

Art School Collective is taking notes from fine art. Each item will be numbered with a letterpress certificate of authenticity. A standard run for each design will be 250 items. We hope to make each item as unique as the individual that buys it.

WHY USE BAMBOO

FaBRic FOR CLOTHING?

Bamboo is a grass, and grows like a weed. In fact, it's the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow up to three feet in a day. It doesn't need help from pesticides or insecticides, and it usually grows on rain water. Just think of the strength, power and self-sufficiency of this crop.

As a fabric, it is as soft as cashmere and stronger than cotton. Environmentally, it is one of the fastest growing plants. It minimizes CO² and generates up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent cotton trees. 

 

Our Process

SCREEN PRINTING

SCREEN PRINTING

FOR CRAFT PRINTS

Our screen printing process is made to reproduce the artist’s vision as truly as possible--starting with the image that is digitally separated, then burned onto the screens. It is then printed onto the garment or high quality paper with environmentally friendly ink. Our ink's make a great looking and archival image that will last for years. On the craft printed garments, the design is dried at a high temperature to ensure it will last though normal washing and wear.

Wear it. Frame it. 

Our Process

LETTERPRESS

Letterpress

FOR CRAFT PRINTS

Some of our craft prints use the letterpress process. Letterpress is a classic printing method where each color plate is inked and stamped directly into paper to transfer the ink and impression. This impression is what gives letterpress it’s unique 3D-like feel. This is repeated until the design is replicated in the design's finished glory!

Artists are the core of Art School Collective. We are an artist co-op and we pride ourselves in financially giving back more than any other other brand. We are a platform for you to find your new favorite artist and get exclusive limited edition craft prints. Check out some of our amazing artists below.
