New totes and T-shirts by Darren John

My lovely friend, Darren John, an amazing Birmingham-based illustrator, has designed not one, but two items for Cut-Out, three colour ladies T-shirts, and some great totes. Get them from the SHOP before they all go.

They're back!

In the Summer of 2008 I started drawing some of my favourite things- namely a 1960's typewriter and an 1980's SLR camera. The Writer and The Photographer became the designs used for the first prints in the homemade print studio in my parents' garage. Now in the GET A GRIP studio full time, it felt like a nice time to bring the designs back. Exposing screens that weren't made using bits of wood and a staple gun- but using the original acetates I had photocopied in the local post office. Available in the shop for just £6. Cut-Out is back and with a handful of amazing designs in the pipeline for Summer, it's all very exciting.

Plans and puppeteers

I feel like I should apologise again for the lack of posts recently. Running GET A GRIP has turned into a full time job and to be honest, I've enjoyed having a break from trying to run my own clothing label. But 2010 is not going to see the demise of Cut-Out, and I have started the year printing some lovely T-shirts and vests by the very talented Camelia Dobrin. Puppeteer can be brought from our SHOP and is just £20 including free postage and packaging within the UK. So I may not always be on twitter, and blog posts and website updates few and far between, but I promise Cut-Out will still be here trying to make nice things you'll like and wear.
