      It's nice to know that members of Pinoy Bloggers Outreach are holding another charitable event today and I've printed 50 shirts for them yesterday. Their previous orders early this year  were white shirts and this time they wanted another color - five colors to be exact hehe. I have to admit that varied colors does look good on an event shirt.

     Actually, I only had 2 days to print these shirts. I always require a lead time of at least 1 week for bulk orders. Depending on the quantity of course. That includes the time to make the silkscreen stencil, the purchasing of blank shirts, and most importantly, the allowance for contingency. 

     It's a long story but I ended up accepting this project and it was really physically straining.  In a day I had the film negative reprinted, burned the screen, purchased inks and bought the shirts minutes before the shop closed for the day because of last minute changes on color allocation per shirt size. 

     After packing the last printed shirt I took a shower, quickly got dressed and took a bus to deliver the shirts to Mandaluyong City yesterday evening.

     Really, I never thought I could print this many shirts in such a short period of time. So I'm gonna give myself a pat on the back... my aching back. ^_^
