Around 91-93 are the years that these test screen prints come from if I remember
correctly, shortly after Rev first moved to the OC, New Age Records shared a
warehouse with Rev where
their stuff was distributed and the Tshirt press was shared. The best screen
print guy in the business was Dave Sine and he was a great worker for Rev and
could turn out the best prints in seconds as he was unbelievably fast. I can
recall Dave doing some of the New Age shirts when he had time, but I also
remember Mike from New Age and my brother Rob would also do
shirts after hours. New Age than moved into their own warehouse and did their
own screen printing.
In any case I found a few of the test prints that were used to make sure
everything looked great before the print was screened onto a shirt, so there was
no waste going on. Man if I can go back and grab the shitty shirts that were
also used once in awhile that had a crap load of Rev and New Age prints all in
one, that would be cool. So all I have is this left over cloth sheets that
proved Rev and New Age records shared the same screen printing machine, if
1. (A) Cloth 1- This is a fun filled one: Judge logo and Mouthpiece fist on one
side-I'm pretty sure this the Judge logo used with the black Judge shirt from
the early 90's-Judge logo in the front going down along next to Mike judge for
the front of the shirt. The back of the shirt had the storm picture. The fist is
the Mouthpiece fist, but there is no X behind it..was used for many of their
(B) Cloth 1 other side- has a big Unbroken logo, an early Mean Season
picture and lyric I think unless thats an Upfront image and lyric(anyone?) and a
New Age logo.
2. (A) Cloth 2- GB logo with the GB font..I think this was the test run for the
remake of the 7" cover shirt with this new logo on the front...shirts were
(B) Cloth 2 other side- This side also has the GB logo and font, it also has
the Outspoken's name in small font with "So What", taken from their famous
shirt: "Straight Edge isn't cool anymore"
3. This cloth has the Sparkmarker flower logo with their name in small
print...This print is the same on both sides. This print could have been made in
These cloth prints would look great in a glass frame, so check them out champs!!
