  • Our classic NPR logo t-shirts are made with comfort and sustainability in mind, they are the perfect addition to any public radio lover’s wardrobe. These shirts are made with impeccable attention to detail in sewing for durability to keep it in your closet for years. Our NPR logo is printed on 100% organic cotton seamlessly using a water-based print and dye process which eliminates shrinkage.

    This shirt is super soft and feels like an old favorite (minus the holes and stains!), but it’s made in the most advanced and environmentally friendly way we’ve ever come across. These shirts are crafted with quality from knit to finish, they are cut, sewn, printed and garment dyed all in the United States. The revolutionary printing process uses low-impact, water-based inks that won’t crack, peel, or wash out. The high quality cotton fabric is made from 30/1 ringspun yarn, leaving it with a light and luxuriously soft feel.

  • Founded in 1977, TS Designs began as a small, manual screen printing operation. It only took a few years for the company to become fully automated, printing shirts for big brands like Nike, Tommy, Polo, GAP, etc. However, after the 1993 implementation of NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement), TS Designs watched as customer after customer transitioned accounts to Mexico in order to take advantage of lower costs.

    Instead of calling it quits, like many of their colleagues in the manufacturing industry, CEO Tom Sineath (retired in 2015) and president Eric Henry turned to fellow business owner and longtime friend Sam Moore for a new direction. Sam introduced Tom and Eric to the triple-bottom-line business model focused on three equally important bottom lines: People, the Planet, and Profits

    Armed with their new business model and a healthy amount of crazy, Tom and Eric sought to align themselves with, and cater to, a then-fringe group: The Green Movement. It was a period of steady progression, exciting new developments and lessons learned as the company leaders continually pushed the boundaries on what was possible in printing technology and what it meant to source from local supply chains.

    Today, TS Designs still sells largely to local, environmentally and socially-conscious businesses and organizations that make up The Green Movement, but also prints for any organization looking for a locally-made, better quality product with a better environmental and social impact. Eric Henry, CEO and President, continues with a spirit of innovation as the company expands its line of in-house apparel brands.
