Atomic Swag started during the Great Recession of 2008. Two vintage enthusiasts, Michelle Griffin & Brian “Shorty” Poole, combined their knowledge of garment printing, their love of 50’s vintage novelty prints, and marketing backgrounds to start Atomic Swag.
Atomic Swag uses the same printing technique as companies did in the 1950s. The same technique used in all the 50s Hawaiian shirts, fabrics, tee shirts and kitchen tablecloths. Atomic Swag silk-screen their garments by hand with water base inks – because there is no better way to print a garment. Silk Screened water base inks are superior to any other printed technique.
