Our friends at @artforceiowa were hit pretty hard by the recent flooding in Des Moines. Much of their art supplies and screen print equipment for Street Cred Studios were damaged. 
As many of you know, we are passionate about our community of fellow makers and at this moment these guys are in some serious need to get their operation back on it’s feet - and we’re asking you to lend a helping hand. // Through the end of the month we’ve brought back our “Create More” tee for you to purchase. All proceeds will go to @artforceiowa so that they can CREATE MORE and continue to positively impact the lives of some very deserving youth. // To purchase or learn more, click the link in our bio. // #screenprint #supportlocal #desmoines #handmade
The Side Garage X @shoppreservation : 
We collaborated with our friends, Preservation, in response to the recent family separations happening at our borders. 
These tees are available for Pre-Order through July 20th, with all profits going towards supporting @raicestexas - Texas's largest resource of legal advocacy and representation in wake of a federal immigration system that breaks apart families and denies millions the option of citizenship. 
We have a quote that is near and dear to our crew's hearts: "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much." - Hellen Keller

Last week we hung out with our friends at the @desmoinesartcenter for an event showcasing some phenomenal female artists. Truth-be-told, we were still on a little bit of an event high the next morning. We were blown away by the support, grace, patience, interest and willingness to print with us. We can’t thank the fine people at the Des Moines Art Center enough for all that they did in preparation for the event! // #screenprint #desmoines #handmade #thesidegarage #supportlocal
Designed for those who prefer to explore the world on two wheels. Our Iowa Bike shirt is the perfect summer addition for taco rides, ragbrai and everything in between. Available now in the online shop (link in bio). // #bikeiowa #iowa #screenprint #handmade
Our first week at the @dtfarmersmarket was so much fun you guys — and we get to do it all over again the weekend! A huge thank you to everyone that swung by to print with us and just say “hi”. We loved meeting so many new faces and as always loved seeing familiar faces as well. Hope to see you and your friends this weekend! // #desmoines #madeindsm #screenprint #supportlocal
Make sure to say “Hi!👋🏼” if you swing out to Vintage & Made Fair this weekend! We’ll be set up with Print-Your-Own-Shirt/Tote/Tank and a few pre-printed onesies and paper prints. // #beamaker #supportlocal #handmade #iowa
Upgrade status. // #areweofficialyet #thesidegarage #screenprint #desmoines #beamaker
We spent our Saturday celebrating a very special golden birthday. It was an honor to do something unique and be apart of @kristinturk’s TieDye Party and we think the shirts turned out great! // #thesidegarage #screenprint #handmade #madeindsm #desmoines #bikeiowa
We’re bringing back some cycling favorites plus a new design just in time for #bikemonth. Also, by popular demand we’ve also added tanks! Get yourself (or that special bike-living-someone) some hand-printed local biking wear for your Tuesday Taco Rides or the party-pit-stops at @ragbrai this summer 🚴‍♂️ // #screenprint #supportlocal #bikemonth #bikeiowa #handmade #madeindsm
We did a little pop-up printing with our friends @art_terrarium this past Sunday and had a blast (mimosas, good tunes, even better people)! If you couldn’t make it out, we printed up a bunch of totes before we left and they’re available for purchase at Art Terrarium. Swing down and get the bag that is the perfect conversation starter or in Ashleigh’s case the conversation-of-shame-starter because her plant survival rate isn’t on the rise... // Shoutout to @moingona for getting some great shots and putting this video together 🤙🏼 // #thesidegarage #screenprint #supportlocal #collaboratemore #handmade #madeindsm
Shoutout to all of the people wearing the things we had a hand in creating. We’re thankful for your continued love and support and humbled that you dig these things enough to be seen on the streets with them. So much love 🙏🏼 // #screenprinting #handmade #madeindsm #design #supportlocal #thesidegarage
Loved being back on campus for Print-Your-Own-Shirt at @drakeuniversity! A big thank you to @drakeinnovation and @drakeeship for having us! // #screenprint #handmade #madeindsm #drakeuniversity // 📷: @csnider
