The image for this shirt was taken from an old matchbook, scanned, digitally
traced and recolored, the image is free of artifacts and jagged edges which
usually accompany reproductions of this sort.

Printed in-house on a 100% cotton
t-shirt, the stock for this image is Vintage Red, but we can put this on almost
any color by request,
