Thursday, 8 September 2011 delivers on Crucible promo

Recently, British-based company offered us something for free in return for a spot of publicity for their wares on

Ever on the blag, we took them at their word and asked them to make up a 'Crucible' t-shirt, featuring artwork from the creator-owned strip I'm writing for publication next year, which is being drawn by Interzone illustrator and former 2000AD artist Smuzz.

We're happy to report to show off the t-shirt "in the wild", with modelling help from artist Smuzz's partner, Eira (who has also developed some amazing glyphs for our new world, by the way). have over 20 years experience in the screen printing industry and tell us they take pride in offering an honest, easy to understand way of doing business. "We believe our customers are searching for someone to fulfil their printing needs without stress and with their satisfaction being our main aim," they tell us.

While the design on our lovely, free, one-of-a-kind t-shirt is just A4 size, we're told they can print larger designs on shirts and the company can screen print to A3 and above.

The t-shirt is great and you can check the company out at Or phone them on 0800 046 7633.
