Jonathan Sample, co-founder of Hollywood’s Fresh Pressed screen-printing workshop, has lofty aims for his little storefront, founded in 2007. “We’re really set up to make screen-printing available to the masses — everyone who works here is an artist or a designer. We all have an affinity for lost arts — screen-printing, engraving, letterpressing.” Small quantities of screen-printed T-shirts are produced — one is the optimal quantity — and can be done quickly. They’re unique shirts made as someone’s unique art: The person making the shirt acts as creative director, all the way down to pulling the paint squeegee. Fresh Pressed offers its screen-printing facilities to everyone from Adidas to a 5-year-old making a shirt to give to his grandma. Many up-and-coming bands take advantage of the facilities to make limited-edition runs of shirts or poster prints. There’s also a “Labor of Love” program: Grooms- and brides-to-be print their own invitations and, as Sample puts it, “add to the romance and experience of building something together prior to their wedding.” What could be more romantic than starting your life together with messy hands? 4646 Hollywood Blvd., Los Feliz.
