we have already written many times that every DEDSHIRTs (unlike the vast majority of t-shirts on the market today) is not a copy or any reproduction but rather an original, the one that in the artistic field is called original art print and we have already written here.
the authenticity of each DEDSHIRTs is certified by the external card that accompanies each piece that is not a label but a true certificate.
the label is a square of 9 cm of smooth white pescia paper 310gr. and 100% cotton.
the front is molded to the press by a manually engraved linoleum matrix and represents the pictorogram of the reaper, the visual identity of the DEDSHIRTs brand. in the early days the matrix was inked and then printed normally; today, however, it was preferred to print only the imprint on the paper.
from the same matrix to date, about 230 labels have been printed.
on the back a series of information is given by hand and pencil:
1- progressive number of printing;
2- the print run, the total number of copies printed for that specific series;
3- the title of the series;
4- the serial number for any reprints out of print run;
5- the size of the t-shirt;
6- the month and year in which the press took place;
7 – artist’s signature.
the second label instead consists of a simple photocopy and reports the commercial information and all the specifications for the washing and treatment of your DEDSHIRTs.
