Girl Scouts visit Amplifier, forget to bring us Thin Mints

We’ve hosted book signings and Kickstarter mavens but yesterday’s visit by Girl Scout Troop 1252 will go down in Amplifier history as our first time staging an actual merit badge challenge.

We’re pretty sure these girls will grow up to be creative kingpins. Every year, they design and print their own troop tees, with stencils and ink and amazing DIY grit and gristle.

This year, they asked us if Amplifier would teach them to screen print for real. Who can say no to girl scouts, even when they aren’t selling cookies?

Our screen printing man, myth, and legend Chris Vreeland taught them the printing process, from art to film to screen to tee, and they took turns printing and curing their very own t-shirts.

The shirts look amazing. We’d like to say you can get your own Troop 1252 tee in our online store, but you can’t. That would be… strange.

Thanks again for stopping in, taking the tour, and brightening our day with your questions about screen printing, glitter ink and unicorn posters, Troop 1252. Let us know when you’re old enough for summer jobs!
