The striking image, on this mug, features a prominent, historic black-and-white photograph capturing the chilling sight of the mushroom cloud from the Nagasaki atomic bomb explosion. The haunting image, a symbol of destruction and human tragedy, fills the majority of the photograph, a stark reminder of the terrifying power humanity unleashed on August 9, 1945.

To the left, the bright yellow text, "Just Because You Can Doesn't Mean You Should," stands out against the monochrome backdrop, a poignant statement of caution and responsibility. The choice of color evokes the blinding light of the explosion, a beacon of warning from the past to the future.

Opposite the message, on the right side of the image, "Nagasaki, August 9, 1945" is similarly penned in the same vibrant yellow hue. The stark date and location provide a historical anchor to the visual narrative of the photograph, reminding viewers of the specific time and place of this momentous, tragic event.

Overall, the image employs a blend of historic photography and bold text to convey a powerful message about the ethics of technological advancement and the importance of remembering past missteps to avoid repeating them in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is All-Over-Print (AOP)?

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.

AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.

Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.

What is Giclée?

Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.

What is a gallery wrap canvas?

Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.

What is a gallery mirror wrap canvas?

Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
