Design is from a movie poster for The Wasp Woman, a really bad 1959 science fiction horror movie made primarily for drive-ins. Drive-in movies usually consisted of exploitative, cheap fare created especially for the new and growing teen market.
In the movie, The Wasp Woman has the head and hands of a wasp, but the body of a woman—exactly the opposite of the creature shown on the film's theatrical release poster, an image which never appears anywhere in the film.
The Wasp Woman received a mixed-to-negative reception from critics upon its release.
One reviewer criticized the film's "ludicrous" monster costume, special effects, and low budget. However, Charles Stinson of the Los Angeles Times wrote, "Leo Gordon's script is smoothly urbane with nice surprising little touches of humor here and there. Slim, intense, brunet Susan Cabot, who always impresses, does excellently nuanced work as the neurotic lady with the worries and the wasps". -- Wikipedia

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.
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.
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.
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.
