Highbury Cemetery T-Shirt, 2018


Every year, I start October's Countdown to Halloween with the unveiling of the season's new haunt logo. I then silkscreen that logo on shirts here in the Cemetery basement to give out as a thank you to anyone who helps set up, run, and tear down the haunt. It's a tradition that now stretches back 15 years! It's not an easy job to run a haunt of this size in a single day, and I want to make sure that I show my appreciation for any and all help.

With 2 days to spare, the 2018 shirts are all done and ready to be passed out. And I'm really happy with the way they turned out!



It's a bit hard to tell in the photo, but I experimented with a white and metallic silver swirl in the print. Some turned out better than others, but I'm still really happy, and I hope everyone that comes over this Halloween will be, too.

A big thank you must go out to Mrs. Highbury, who helped me print the shirts up in the kitchen this past weekend. After 15 years of doing this, we have really streamlined the whole process and every year, the shirts turn out a bit better.

And every year, the number of shirts printed seems to increase...



Someday I might just go crazy and print up a bunch to sell online, but for now, it's another project off the list for this year's haunt. Two days to go until the big night and so much left to do. Time to make my final push toward Halloween!
