"I Brake For Turkeys" is the first graphic tee we've made following our logo collection. We chose the turkeys because we adore them, and because they are a beloved local icon. The turkeys straddle suburbia and the wild, meandering through the neighborhoods as examples of how to live in harmony with both society and nature. The turkeys mozey across the busiest arterials with grace, commanding more traffic stops than a lilac princess, and all the while cooing to their young in tender tones.
As we were preparing to print these turkey tees, on a fine May afternoon (the most glorious month in Spokane...the pinnacle of Spring bursting into Summer right before your eyes) while setting up our printing assembly-line, we were heralded by the most alarming gobble from a neighbor's yard. While there are many turkeys in this area, we have never seen turkeys on our block. So this was an unusual and auspicious sound. Barking from three adjacent backyards ensued, followed by a chorus of humans yelling at dogs. This suburban symphony floating over a baseline of lawn mowers was our green light to bring the Turkey tee to life.
This super soft everyday tee is designed in-house and printed by hand in our backyard studio. If you love turkeys as much as we do, this is a must-have tee for your collection. This design is available in three fits:
