The company that manufactures and mails our T-shirts and hats in California, Printful, has been running behind as a result of the pandemic. T-shirts are taking 23-28 business days to fulfill.
Note: These shirts ship to the U.S. and Canada only. These shirts are made via print-on-demand, so we cannot accept returns (unless the shirt is defective) so please check the sizes and colors with care. These will also ship separately from any book or tool orders.
When we started Lost Art Press, we kicked around several ideas for what should be the symbol of our small company. We toyed with a saw and then a plane, and we eventually settled on using Joseph Moxon’s compass.
The dark horse candidate was to use a skep, a woven, basket-like beehive. The beehive has long been the symbol of the industrious joiner, and I love its shape and the parallels between the world of the bees and artisans.
But few people (aside from Mormons, Freemasons and the history-obsessed) associate the skep with building things. We’d like to change that and now present this T-shirt design that marries the skep with the tools of the joiner.
Printed in America, these logo T-shirts are 100-percent cotton and feature a hand-drawn logo by artist Joshua Minnich. They are available in navy and black sizes from S to 3XL. Gildan shirts are cut slim, so please take a close look at the sizing chart below before ordering.
