Albert Clegg has just graduated from Norwich University of the Arts where his idea for Bean Clothing won the 2014 Brainchild competition. He has already put in a lot of hard graft before then designing and printing sample tees himself and researching how to become fairtrade. So big ups to Albert and we look forward to seeing huge things from you and Bean Clothing.

Member of the month is......T-Shirt Republica!
Steve Hutchens is the man behind T-Shirt Republica. Steve is a lifetime leftwing activist and this is reflected in the products he designs. He produces a range of radical political left wing, socialist Marxist revolutionary T shirts with a sprinkling of green eco T shirts and perhaps the odd funny t shirt simply because it appeals to his warped sense of humour!
If you want to buy one of his t-shirts check out his website: http://www.t-shirt-republica.co.uk/
and like his page on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TShirtRepublica
The next Member of the Month is a big one – it goes to The Click for smashing print room records in terms of prints per hour and for sheer dedication in following through this project right from design to actual printing.
The Click is a creative design consultancy based in Norwich, England. Established seven years ago, it is made up of five members of staff and works with clients across the UK.
The Click first came to Stew Print Rooms for a team building session and liked it so much they came up with The Print Sale project which they explain more about here:
“The Print Sale has been set up to capture ideas flying around the studio, get them on paper and support good causes in the process. The posters feature thoughts, ideas and little witticisms dreamt up by the team at The Click. Each one is screen printed with vibrant inks on GF Smith Colorplan stock. Print runs are strictly limited and all profits are donated to good causes.
100% of profits from sales will be shared between a selection of charities that hold significance for members of the team. These are: Age UK, Alzheimer's Society, Asperger East Anglia, Bowel Cancer UK, East Anglia's Children's Hospices and Mustard Soup.”
So for the perfect Christmas present go to http://theprintsale.com/ you will be spoilt for choice!!!!
