Welcome To A New Brand Alert

We interviewed the brains behind JSR Jessie Rayburn recently.You can catch the interview below and learn more about JSR.
There is also an exclusive discount at the end of the interview that Jesse has set up for Geek Shirts HQ readers.
Why did you start JSR?
I've worked in the print industry for over 10 years and am always working on artwork and projects for other people.
JSR is all me. It's my own creative outlet to showcase my personal designs. The amount of positive feedback I've received towards my designs and products motivates me to keep creating more.
When did you start?
A good friend of mine had suggested I share a table with him at Fan Expo Canada in 2006. I was a bit skeptical of how well my work would go over but after 3 days of awesome feedback and sales, JSR was born.
Where are you based?
I am based out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
What else can you tell me about JSR?
Because I'm trained as a Graphic Designer and work in the print industry, I'm always thinking of how my products should be designed, produced and packaged.
I'm constantly trying to think of new ideas and how to execute my artwork, whether it be in letterpress print, screen printed t-shirts or buttons.
I have a friend that has a laser die cutter, so we've been able to do some really neat stuff with stickers, it's one of my favourite things to make.
What printing process do you use when printing a tee and the brand of tee you use?
All of my shirts are screen printed by Try This On For Size (TTOFS). I use American Apparel and AlStyle Apparel Tees .
What can someone expect when ordering a product from you?
They can expect a top-notch product that is thoughtfully designed and produced using the best possible methods.
I work very closely with all of my printers to ensure the highest quality product is produced.
What plans have you got for the future?
Continue creating new work and expanding JSR.
