It’s not all clothing design, photo shoots and canapes around here, you know! This past week, The Fableists headed to the warehouse to check over our first shipment of the artist-designed t-shirts.
What was initially billed as ‘a couple of hours’ of work quickly became two full days. After individually labelling the clothing passports with the print number of the t-shirt by hand, we had to put them in to the bags with the tees.
Each t-shirt has now been carefully unpacked, had the size and print checked, been labelled with a bar code, had its passport assigned, been counted and re-packed. What a labour of love! And it was dangerous work – at any minute we could have been run over by a forklift moving a pallet of boxes around. Fortunately we had our high vis vests on so we could be spotted from the moon. We have handled so many t-shirts that this Fableist can now tell the size of a tee with her eyes closed just by the weight and feel of the thing. That is skill.
Now they are all ready and waiting to be shipped off all over the world to their first owners. Don’t you just want to take one home?
