Creating our Yardrock Jnglst Limited Edition Collab Signature Tees
Our Yardrock Jnglst Signature tees were released in August and have been flying out since then.
We sold over 100 on pre-order before they had even arrived!
Our latest offering from the ongoing collab between Junglist Network, Jnglst Clothing and Yardrock RIQ has created our most popular product yet. After the success of our Yardrock Junglst bags, with their ten pouches and pockets, metal logo and embroidered patch yardrock artwork, we decided to work on a new tee.
We wanted something that had a certain retro Jungle look! Something for Ravers, Junglists and Drum and Bass heads alike. We also wanted something that could be our signature piece for the latest range. That was our mini eureka moment and we thought we'd combine the two ideas and make a t-shirt covered in signatures.
After a few quick design mock-ups to see how it looked, we were all in agreement that we just might be onto something.
We also decided to donate some money from the t-shirt to charity and decided on Sebastian's action trust as a worthwhile cause. £1 from every T-Shirt sold would go straight to them for all the good work they do.
Reaching out to DJ's, MC's and Artists
So we started speaking to some of our favourite Jungle and Drum and Bass artists, DJ's and MC's to see if they would send in their signatures.
We soon had a steady flow of signatures coming in from the world's finest Junglists and DnB artists.
General Levy got on board and sent his over, as did Logan D and Harry Shotta. Soon the Serial Killaz, Ragga Twins, Remarc, MC Fearless and DJ Rap.
We managed to speak to the family of Stevie Hyper D and get permission to use his signature on the t-shirt.
Things were starting to shape up and the design was coming together nicely. A second and third wave of signatures starting coming in and we soon had more than enough Jungle and Drum and Bass legends to make the design.
Our latest piece of raver clothing was shaping up and from a few sneak previews we released it looked like the Jungle massive was feeling the vibe.
Producing the T-Shirt
We didn't want anything other than a great quality product, made well with a good long lasting print on it. So rather than go down a lazy sublimation print, we decided to print directly onto fabric and then turn that fabric into tees.
After the design had been finished and the mock-ups had been approved we designed the cut of the tee and got our first samples made up.
The quality was spot on, we figured all the ravers, dj's and mc's would be happy with it, we made a few tiny tweeks to the design print size and a few little alterations to the size and cut of the tee to make it a nice modern box cut.
We started production and put the t-shirts up for sale. Our first post reached thousands of ravers, jungle and drum and bass headz and the pre-order started to flood in.
