Every December, I send a gift of screen printed Flour Sack towels to my friends, family and business colleagues. (http://www.acshomeandwork.com/30x30…towel.html)
Last year I sent 4 towels each with the chemical symbols representing my favorite vices: Red Wine, Coffee, Butter, Salt. They were simple line drawings, like this: http://0.tqn.com/d/chemistry/1/G/h/6/1/theobromine.jpg
I WANT: 2 graphics, max size 10"x10"
I will have each of them screenprinted on the white towels using a single color. The graphics must be very simple; the towel material is too porous to support a complicated or multi color design. Shading will not be possible to replicate with a 1-color screen print. The towel is white so that should be the background color for all entries.
I will then package the towels along with cans of tuna caught by my partner on his fishing trips this summer.
STYLE IDEAS: Something fun, tongue in cheek, but still accessible to grandparents or colleagues.
