3rd Rail x Malarko

We’re super excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with street artist Malarko for the second in a series of print collaborations. Conceived to showcase the most innovative in-house screen and garment printing techniques we want the limited edition t-shirt boxes to deliver unique and beautifully made art products released on a quarterly basis. This ongoing project will encourage participating artists to reimagine the humble t-shirt and screen print for a final interpretation that’s sure to be completely original every time. Initially gaining notoriety by adorning shop shutters with his vividly colourful and jazzy characters Malarko’s body of work now encompasses a whole range of media and has been commissioned by the likes of Adidas and the V&A to name a few so we’re pretty chuffed to have him on board.

3rd Rail x The Pattern Guild

screen printed t-shirt and art print process


Over the last few weeks we’ve been hard at work on a new collaborative project with The Pattern Guild. The aim was to use our most innovative in house printing and customisation techniques to create a limited edition t-shirt pack.

Instead of relying on readymade garments we actually printed onto jersey panels. We created our own fabric pattern template based on an amalgamation of what we’ve noticed to be the most popular t-shirt styles. Once printed the panels were cut out using this template and sewn together to make the finished t-shirt.

The pack also includes a 2 colour screen print of the same design measuring 24cms x 30cms on Southbank Smooth 310 and everything comes packaged in a presentation box with a screen printed sleeve. If you want to know more about the creation process check out our behind the scenes video HERE.

For the next few days we’re offering you a chance to win one of these t-shirt packs. To enter click HERE and select as many of the 9 entry options as you like. The more you enter the higher your chances so good luck!
