Cowhugger tees

Client: Cowhugger

Average Studio Temp in July: 90 degrees

We’ve been working with this vegan boutique for a couple of years. It’s been fun to see them grow and offer more and more vegan products throughout that time. Like a lot of our customers, we all share a passion for being vegan.

We like to keep it real (yo), stay relaxed and informal – and when clients are the same way, it makes for a better result all around.

This one was super fun to print.

Check out their online store, or visit them at one of the gazillion events they’re doing this year.
