About the Massive District Fitted Muscle Solid Black Tank with White Ink
This is the tank that we created for all of the MASSIVE humans in the world. There are so many athletes in the world, some are "tiny" some are "large". Some have been told that they were too small their whole life. Others have been told that they are too big. With so many confusing and toxic messages in the world, we want to celebrate humans who want to claim their space and also claim how they define theirselves. The word Massive means so many things to different people. To us, at Strong Athletic, it means that you're doing things. You're making change happen. You're taking control of your situation and you're contributing to moving forward. The beautiful thing behind the concept of this tank is that you get too decide what the 7 letters across your chest mean to you. And whatever the meaning is for you, we bet it's MASSIVE.
About this Black Drop Arm Muscle Tank
This design is printed in white ink on a black District Muscle Tank. The front of the tank says MASSIVE and has the Strong Athletic logo, the back of the tank has the Strong Athletic logo. The sizing for this tank is based on the average body size of cis woman. If you've worn other Strong Athletic tanks before, be sure to look at the sizing for this one, as it's might fit a bit different than your other tanks depending on the brand that you own. Depending on the size of the tank you choose, the letters may or may not "fall off" of the shirt. The smaller the tank, the more the letters are cut off of the design. The larger the shirt, the more the letters fit on the design. We are so thankful to Amanda who prints for us in Austin, Texas at the Austin Screen Printer's Coop for agreeing to print our artistic vision.
About the Production of this Strong Athletic Shirt
Every single Strong Athletic shirt is printed by a small-scale, local screen printer. The majority of our shirts are printed by Amanda in Austin, Texas who prints out of the Austin Screen Printer's Coop, a screen printing shop that is member owned and run in East Austin. When our shirts are not printed by Amanda they are printed by other small-scale screen printers such as Second Avenues Ink in Portland, Oregon or Leigh Valley Apparel Creations in Pennsylvania. As mentioned above, the art for this design was created by Cristen Perks in 2013 for Strong Athletic founder Nadia Kean. The Strong Athletic logo was created by Angel Ortega in 2015, until that point our shirts had the Get Smarty Coaching logo on them. The color combo of this shirt is a dark gray ink on a lighter gray fabric. The sleeves for this tee are dark gray. The words "Strong Athletic Woman" and the Strong Athletic logo are printed on the front of this long sleeve shirt, the Strong Athletic logo is printed on the back of the shirt.
Every Strong Athletic Shirt comes wrapped in our signature "You are so Strong" wraps which are held together with a kraft Strong Athletic sticker. Each shirt is then packaged in a biodegradable kraft mailer that we get from a US based company called EcoEnclose. We include a postcard that shares the origin story of Strong Athletic and that is addressed by hand to the person receiving the shirt. Also included in every package is a Strong Athletic logo sticker and one of our "We Believe" stickers. Every time you open a package from Strong Athletic we want it to feel special, especially if you're sending the Strong Athletic shirt as a gift.
