Today we remember and celebrate those who have served. // To be honest, we feel today a little more because several weeks ago, we were presented with the opportunity to be involved with the project and get to hear and share a wonderful human’s story through design. // We are so thankful for those who have chosen and continue to choose to serve. // #veteransday #hasheartus // 📷: @tylerdway
“Behind every product is a person.” From the point our blanks reach our garage, we take each garment into our own two hands and pack it with a whole lot of hand-made love. Each product is a representation of our gratitude to you and your decision to purchase from us.

So, thank you for your support and we hope you feel the love when you slip on your TSG gear. // #screenprint #iowa #desmoines #supportlocal #madeindsm #handmade
You guys, the @loyalsonsbarbershop grand opening was top notch. It was so fun for us to see some new and familiar faces supporting an incredible group of humans. A huge shout out the the crew for letting us be a part of their special night, the artists who contributed the shirt designs (@tgwhipp, @oldmanstreeter and @paulnycz_cc) and last but certainly not least to everyone who stepped up to the press to snag their limited @loyalsonsbarbershop tee. // #desmoines #supportlocal #thepeoplemakedsm #screenprint #thesidegarage
Don’t forget to snag a @madeindsm x @thesidegarage collab tee by Monday 10/1 and let everyone know why #desmoines is one of the best. #thepeoplemakedsm // Super soft tee printed with love by local hands. Check out @madeindsm for the purchasing link! // #screenprint #supportlocal #madeindsm #desmoines
Two years ago we decided to make this thing official and attended our first ever makers fair (@vintageandmadefair). It’s the best kind of crazy to spend time reflecting on the beginning, everything we’ve had the honor to be a part of up to this point and where we hope to continue to move as we keep pushing forward. So many things look and feel different from the beginning - it’s so much better than we could have ever imagined. // Thank you to our friends and family who continue to encourage and challenge us. Thank you to this community for choosing to support us and not be afraid to buy into something a little different. We’re here because of AND for each and every one of you. // Cheers to the next year of making things together. 👏🏼🙏🏻 // #thesidegarage #screenprint #desmoines #iowa #beamaker
Sometimes choosing sides can be hard. Good thing we have tees to help you support whichever side you happen to fall on game day. // 📷: @mirandaklingenberg + @apeiam // #iowa #screenprint #tailgating #handmade
It’s always a pleasure to set up and print with the future movers and shakers of @drakeuniversity // A huge thank you to @drakeinnovation for including us in their back-to-school kick-off and to all of the students who pulled a squeegee 🤙🏼 // #screenprint #community #desmoines #supportlocal #beamaker
GIVEAWAY: We we’re doing some shop clean up and found this size Large Bike DSM tee. So we’re doing a little giveaway to find it a home. To enter: like this post and comment below by tagging your favorite biking buddy + tagging your favorite biking pit-stop in #desmoines. We’ll keep it open until midnight tonight and will randomly select a winner tomorrow morning! // #bikeiowa #madeindsm #giveaway #iowa #screenprint #supportlocal #bikelocal
These cool mornings are reminding us that summer is slowly making an exit for the year — which means tank season will be coming to an end too. // Be sure to check out our selection of #desmoines and #bikeiowa themed tanks before they go into hibernation. // 📷: @studiopreservation
This Saturday (8/18) is our FINAL date for the @dtfarmersmarket! Swing by with your friends and family to sling some ink and print your own shirt from 7am-Noon. We’ll also have a re-stock on pre-printed onesies and toddler tees! // And we want to express a huge thank you to the wonderful humans at @dsmpartnership for all the work they put into the farmers market and for allowing us to be a part of it. It’s gone by so fast, but it’s been a blast every single time! // #iowa #desmoines #supportlocal #DTFM #screenprint
These ink tones are making us want to head out west... Oh wait - we’re heading that way this week. 😎 // ANNOUNCEMENT: We will be taking a few days off at the end of the week and beginning of next as we head over to CA, for some ocean views and live music. We won’t be gone long, and when we get back we’ll be ready to hit the ground running with our final @dtfarmersmarket and more cool events and projects in the works. // Feel free to drop us a line, but just know we may be a little delayed on getting back to you since our vacation mode will be turned on for a little recharge... // #vacation #workhardplayhard #createthelifeyouwant #outsidelands2018
We can’t even begin to believe that it’s already August. Where did the year go you guys? // The thing we have loved so much about this year is that we have had front row seats to so much of what is moving Des Moines forward in such a full and powerful way. You did that. So keep shaking things up, keep pursuing your dreams and ideas and keep creating more for our community. // And if you need a helpful printing hand or just someone to bounce an idea off of - we’ll be here. // #desmoines #supportlocal #community
