      • [AUDIO] PPW Q&A | AFTERNOON REFLECTIONS WITH MISTY SOL

        Interview by Maryam Pugh

    WELCOME TO PHILADELPHIA PRINTWORKS

    Here we endeavor to encourage a culture of activism through t-shirts, screen printing, collaboration and community. Founded in 2010, PPW is based in Philadelphia, a place ruled by grit, hard work, determination and authenticity. 

    HOW DOES PPW WORK?

    Philadelphia Printworks is a small printshop with a big heart.  Most of our designs are printed in small batches called "print runs". Each print run may be limited to anywhere between 25-40 shirts. This not only means that your design is unique, but, it also means that we tend to sell out quickly.  Based on feedback from people like you we may decide to do a second print run or graduate a design to a permanent staple. We try to find a balance between introducing new designs that keep up with current issues while maintaining more popular existing designs that seem to have struck a chord with our friends. That's why it's very important that you participate in the feedback loop! Next to each sold out shirt is a link that says "Click here to be notified". Please use it!
