Pigment-Dyed Denim Long Sleeve Shirt. 100%

The Story of the Gecko Beach Design: A major seller at surf shops, Nordstroms, Macy's and more -- we ran different versions of Gecko Beach for over 10 years, as it was one of our best sellers. The design itself was hand-drawn -- and it's one of the things that really makes the original Gecko Designs so different. We honestly believe that through the process hand drawing the art (versus creating it digitally on a computer in a few hours) the small imperfections, which helped to capture the soul of the art. The hand drawn element captures "The Soul" of the artist. 

Back then, the artist would go surfing, draw a little, smoke a little, surf a little, draw a little -- and wind up with their final sketch. The process would take over a week. Then, the artist would send the design via FedEx (the days before email). Gecko HQ 2 in California would receive the art, potentially make some notes or recommendations (changes to colors, etc) over the phone, and then Fed-Ex it back to the artist, where they would surf a little, draw a little, etc. -- then send it back with the changes made. 

Gecko Beach is one of the Gecko designs that worked on EVERY color shirt. For our first go-around this time, we added it to black, white, grey and denim shirts for an extra "neon-pop!" Gecko Beach went through a 7 flash process, (a classic/retro shirt printing style that is not used often these days, because it is a more expensive printing process -- but it's what gives these shirts an all "new" dimension of color. People are so used to getting shirts "printed on demand" -- that these days we are all used to less quality and less color in order to produce shirts cheaper and faster. Not at Gecko! We spare no expense to make it EXACTLY the way you remember!

One of our most popular "secret shirts" colors to date -- "The Electric Mango" -- is BACK! For the first time ever in LONG SLEEVE & Double Puffed for those chilly winter days! It's not a weird "construction orange"  -- it's a super bright 80s neon orange that is perfect for anyone longing for the old school 80's look and feel!

ABOUT GECKO SURFARI - PUFFED-INK, ELECTRIC MANGO, ONE-OFF

Gecko Surfari is a design that we used early on in our relaunch and it sold out in every color and release that we had. We only re-released Gecko Surfari this time, because it's such an iconic design from the 80s, that we wanted to use it while printing our rare, limited edition, color-changing HYPERFLASH shirts -- but the design looked soooooooo good (better than it ever had before, now that our retro printing system is all tuned up and humming, like it was way back when) that we thought we'd make the nostalgic Gecko Fan's happy with this long-sleeve one-off.

WHY THIS PUFFED-INK SHIRT OOZES WITH NOSTALGIA LIKE NON-OTHER

This shirt is "DOUBLE puffed" for the first time ever, which gives it a distinct quality that I personally haven't seen or experienced since 1985, when I was 6 years old --- it is saturated with nostalgia.

When I first saw this new "puffed" reprint of Gecko Safari that Team Gecko assembled -- this sounds crazy -- but I honestly almost started to cry of happiness, because I was struck with memories that I didn't even know I had from long ago. I was blown away!

Specifically there are 2 details about this shirt that personally struck me. The first was the detail in the color on the title "Gecko Safari." The color we used is an accidental corral color -- we didn't do it on purpose, and may not be able to reproduce it again -- the paint just hadn't totally mixed yet -- so, it was a happy accident and it's a rare color that I used to love, but don't see much of on shirts anymore.

The second detail is the depth of the ink around the Gecko's sunglasses. It is so unique and I literally had a flashback to 1st grade! I remembered having shirts with graphics that were so puffed, I would just sit at my desk and stare at the shirt all day and poke at the "3-Dimension" quality, stretching and squishing the ink, wondering "How did they do that?" It brought up all sorts of happy memories about mom and that time of my life that I thought I had forgotten about.  If I was to have known that flash forward 34 years, I'd be working with the ORIGINAL Gecko Hawaii crew, it would have blown my mind!

THE MOST AUTHENTIC 1980s SHIRT MADE IN 2020:

CREATING 27 LAYERS OF DETAILED, QUALITY, RETRO, PUFFED INK, COLOR & DIMENSION

To go deeper into the quality of how this shirt was produced -- we used what we call "The Monster." It's a huge screen printing machine that has over 18 stations. THIS VERSION OF GECKO SURFARI USED 12 STATIONS! Each station layers another layer of ink and is "flashed" -- a process that used high density light to dry each layer in seconds. Nobody does this anymore for several reasons:

1. These machines are expensive.

2. People generally print using a printer and print on demand.

3. Even if a company had one of these machines, they generally don't have hand-drawn artwork that requires so much detail. Plus 12 layers of puffed ink can get EXTREMELY expensive, because it uses a lot of electricity, ink, and takes a couple of people to prep it.

HOW TO PERSONALIZE YOUR PUFFED INK SHIRT TO MAKE IT LOOK VINTAGE

1. This shirt is "Pigment Dyed." Pigment dyed shirts have a unique quality as they are extra colorful and bright to start, but the more you wear them and wash them, the more they begin to fade. If you wear it a lot first before washing it, the fade will happen in the areas you naturally engage with the most. If you wash it after one wear, the fade begins to happen along the stitching of the shirt.

2. These shirts are 100% cotton, so they shrink just a very tiny bit. That causes the ink to move with the fabric... but the ink doesn't shrink, so that is when the puff can raise even higher, or can be "pulled and stretched" and start to crack. The more you crack it, the puffed ink can begin fall and break off, giving it that super vintage look and feel -- the kind that "digitally printed" shirts try to duplicate, but looks super fake vintage.  

3. That being said, Gecko Hawaii uses the top of the line inks, so these shirts won't crack for along time unless you pull and stretch them, or wash them over and over again 10 times in a row after each wear.

What you're left with is probably one of the most authentic mid 1980s puffed-ink reproductions on the market, using an iconic hand drawn design from the 80s, on a shirt color that was super 80s, printed with the same machines from the 80s, by the same team from the 80s!

THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT FROM SHIRTS IN THE 1980s IS THAT IT WAS PRINTED IN NOVEMBER 2020!

ABOUT GECKO BLEND LIght Purple- PUFFED-INK, PIGMENT ONE-OFF

Gecko Blend is a design that we used early on in our relaunch and it's been sold out for months. We only re-released Gecko Blend this time, because it's such an iconic design from the 80s, that we wanted to use it while printing our rare, limited edition, color-changing HYPERFLASH shirts.  We chose the light purple color, because in the late 80s when this design first came out, light purple was one of the most popular colors for men and women -- and now, it's coming back into style BIG TIME! We also added a puffed front shirt logo in the day glow neon red puff!

WHY THIS PUFFED-INK SHIRT OOZES WITH NOSTALGIA LIKE NON-OTHER

It will most likely turn into one of your "go too" shirts -- because it's cool, tough, not too overtop, but at the same time it grabs attention.
