Behind-the-Ink with WDWRD MVMNT
When it comes to screen-printing, WDWRD MVMNT (Woodward Movement) has got us covered. Literally! Screen-printing is a by-hand process of transferring ink onto materials using a mesh stencil. Each ink is smoothly layered across a stencil to create much of the apparel and accessories we rock today. Originating in China during the Song Dynasty, screen-printing wasn’t introduced into Western Europe until the 18th century. Over the eras the screen-printing technique has evolved, but its art form remains the same, and this company is one of many that helps to keep to alive.
WDWRD MVMNT is a Detroit based custom screen-printing shop specializing in brand development. From apparel and sourcing all the way to fulfillment, this creative team is dedicated to moving brands forward. Using creative design, quality products, and progressive processes, WDWRD MVMNT brings their client’s vision to life. One of them being Threads! They print on pretty much anything… wearables, posters, wood panels, boxes, glass, and more. You know our popular “Overwhelming Spirit Tee,” they made it. All the “City Outline Tees,” the “Detroit Glyph Windbreaker,” the “Eye of Awareness Hoodie,” and a few more have all been screen-printed and by WDWRD MVMNT. Now that’s a lot of mesh!
Screen-printing has been called the most versatile of all printing processes. Mainly because it’s affordable and readily available, despite being performed manually. Its long-lasting popularity illustrates its stamp in time and art. This style of printing represents underground art culture, presenting a DIY aesthetic typically seen on movie posters, record albums, and visual art. No wonder our “Retro Detroit Hoodie” looks so authentic.
As a culture-inspired apparel line, we want to provide our team members with top quality products. We are looking for products that are ecofriendly, made in the USA, 100% sweatshop free, and of course locally produced. That’s why we work with the best source right here in the city we call home.
