The Operation Paperclip T-Shirt is inspired by the US Governments post-war program to recruit former Nazi scientists and engineers to work in the United States and help the US gain dominance in the growing Cold War. Most notable amongst them was rocket scientist Wernher von Braun who had developed the V-2 rocket during the war and went on to develop the rockets that launched the United States' first space satellite Explorer 1, and the Apollo program manned lunar landings.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
