deadest_print_3-pack_and_aspirin_3-pack_.jpg

THE LAST OF THE DEADEST: First there was the Dead Prints. Gobbled up in hours. Then there was the Deader Prints. Gone in minutes. Back in January we did 5300 of 7000 Deadest Prints in 3-4 days. And had them shipped out just as fast. Each set is $17.95. Buying options below are as follows, "Two 3-Packs (1 Deadest + 1 Aspirin)," "Four 3-Pack (2 Deadest + 2 Aspirin)" and "Six 3-Packs (3 Deadest + 3 Aspirin." Pick one of the three options. One purchase per human. If we see folks stacking up multiple "Two 3-Packs" orders we will either cancel the extra orders, or request extra shipping. Play nice, please.

THE VERY LAST OF THE "DDC DEADEST PRINTS"...WITH SOME "ASPIRIN" MIXED IN...BE ALIVE, GHASTLY GHOULS!!!!

Product Details:
01. FIRST 3-PACK: The final stash of our "DDC Deadest Print" run. Various crunched, crinkled, forgotten and forlorned Deadest prints in the first set! Could be a full set, could be partial filled in with "Aspirin" books. There were some mix-ups, miscalculations and straight up screw-ups with these, but we were able to fill holes with "Aspirin" books here and there.
02. SECOND 3-PACK: Three "Aspirin" books. Three different covers. Fluorescent orange "Obfuscous Orange" Pantone 805 ink! BRIGHT!
03. Cover and back hit with a brute force "Sepulchral Silver" foil. From crispy clean to cloyingly crusty to all-out bedlam.
04. Inside cover and back cover hit with a gruesome 2-color application of "Pestilent Purple" and "Obfuscous Orange" fluorescent inks. Let's get weird, shall we? Okay.
05. Think ink on durable papers.
06. Proudly printed, foiled, stitched and trimmed in Portland, Oregon.
07. Kitted and shrink-wrapped by the tenacious team at Some Place Else out in Beaverton.
08. 3.5" x 5.5" in dimension.
09. 48-page memo books, and ready for the world.
10. Very, very limited run of these weirdo books. 7000 three-packs, with some "Aspirin 3-Pack" overage.
11. Innards paper is "Do Not Go Into The Light" white smooth text with a grid printed in a macabre mist of "Terrifying Turquoise" ink. Makes no sense, right? Wrong. Perfectly precarious.
12. Graph paper.
13. Each belly band is hand-numbered on the cover, using our patented freehand technique. We take the belly band as seriously as we take ANYTHING ELSE IN OUR LIVES.
14. LIMITED TO "ONE ORDER" PER HUMAN. Options include "2 Three-Packs," "4-Three-Packs" and "6 Three-Packs." Don't go buying forty of these things. We fight hard to make sure every customer can get a couple sets, and if someone comes in hot with an order for 100 of them, we reserve the right to cancel that order, and politely remind you to follow the rules.
15. We always say it, but here goes again: THESE ARE GONNA GO FAST. Act now!
16. Once these are gone...as Bugs would say, "THAT'S IT, FOLKS!"
About The Gold Books:
There are 15 sets that had a “Gold Cover” print in the first position of the 3-pack. These will be shipped out RANDOMLY as the orders come in. If you get one of these in your shipment, contact us, and I’ll ship you a rare set from my archives. As simple as that. The gold cover book HAS TO BE in the first position of the 3-pack in the original shrink wrap. Only 15 “Gold Cover First Position” sets will be sent out. Will you get one?! A sheet "What To Do If You Get One" sheet will accompany each lucky order.

GETTING LOW: We finally pulled the trigger on our very first 5-panel kamper kap! After years of being pulled aside and told, "Draplin, come on, make one of those hats like skateboarders wear!," we took heed and pulled one off. Okay, okay. I have a bigger order in the works, but his first one is just to wet the whistle a bit, with breezing spring and summer days in mind. Maybe by a beach? Or on a trail? Submersed in rapids? All of the above. This kamper kap is a refreshing departure from our classic DDC Action Caps, fitting low to the noggin. Lightweight and breezy, these kampers turned out awesome. Get mellow in this one!

Grateful Deadest!!!
Posted at 08:08 PM

site_deadest_thank_you.jpg

GRATEFUL DEADEST: Just a quick note of appreciation for the last week and allllllll those DDC Deadest Print orders that whipped out of the shop! A ghastly extirpation of box after box.

We're thankful for each and every order. We're thankful for all the interest all these years with our "Dead" and "Deader" prints. We're thankful for the patience after that first "Soon," weathering all the hiccups, setbacks and ice storms the universe kept throwing at these.

They are out in the world, and it's been a blast seeing people's stashes, trades and enjoyment of these ghouls. I started a "Dinosaur J Freak Scene Documentary" cut myself a couple days back. Such a fun explosion of foil, freakishness and fuckery in each book.

Thank you from all of us at the DDC!

DDC-304 "Arbor Wave" Poster Second Edition!
Posted at 04:52 PM

WOOSHING WAVE: On November 20th, 2019 we set up a pop-up at Arbor Collective in Venice, California. The cool beach air was flowing through my locks in and around my bald spot. I had multiple grains of sand in the crack. Might've even been wearing some flea-bit sandals? Whatever the deal, the place was PACKED for the event, and those beach rats RAVAGED our proud offering at our DDC merch table. Luckily, we had a stack of our "DDC x Arbor Collective Super Wave" posters to fend them off. They put a serious dent in our stash that night, and a good time was had by all. The biggest thank you to Arbor's Bob, Nate, Eric and all the super helpful shop kids! Usually, we have to unload and load the van. Everyone chipped in that night, and I'm still beaming with appreciation. THANK YOU for such a cool night in such a quintessential beach town. Long live Venice!

DDC Merchmas 2023, 12/12: Soon...
Posted at 12:00 PM

merch_site_deadest_coming_soon.jpg

DDC MERCHMAS, DAY 12: 



“Twas the twelfth night of DDC Merchmas,
While Spears was counting his vault of Eeeks,
Durbin was burping the cutest baby in Texas,
Vandersteen was DM’ing a guy named Fleeks.

Lary completed his third book after supper,
Barry was lost in a deep glade of bluegrass,
Tina was needling the space of Puget,
Clayton had Cadbury smeared on the ass…phalt.

Gail bellybanded all that needed bellybanding,
Bob Clark reflected on the rules of the game,
Eli Barrieau was totally the way to go,
And Barron van Deusen had the coolest name,

Some liked plain, some liked graph,
A couple lined lined, and a few reticule grid,
Ralph was concerned about fountain pen ink,
A Ph factor of 666 was scoffed at and forbid.

Kathacinno pondered the pad printing realms,
Kim Lathan was getting measurements for Mike,
Gary Varner poked a hole in that thang,
Dane smiled a sweet smile, that cute little tyke.

Some filled their covers with sketch and decal,
Others kept them pristine and perfectly clean,
Jason Bluike swaddled his in stitched leather,
Please remember the sweet smile of Pauline.

Tee Lock mused with the shelf of Jeff Springer,
Chelsea Enck traded with Zach Summers,
Brandon Morris traded with Teresa Bragg,
Each transaction delighted, free of bummers.

Macek was reliving his Butcher Orange moment,
Fulton was yellow with thick lines thickery,
Millar was solving the unsolvable Sudoko,
Matt Allan was frolicking with foil flickery.

Vandersteen was hanging a Heartland poster,
Thornton was busy scoring and trimming,
Mulvee was bartering with a cute critter,
Joey Guido’s zamms were really zimming.

While Bedell sniffed fumes from a scooter’s tank,
Jorgensen’s printing rig started to lag and lurch,
Jim studied the bloomers of Barry Lyndon,
Michele rewatched episode 417 of Broadchurch.

Mom Draplin was jamming some Jackson Browne,
Uncle Terry was talking about the traffic on 96,
Little sister Sarah was really missing her big brother,
Leigh’s latest crock of soup had the tastiest mix.

Smelling of rot, decay, worm and dirt,
Haunted with vim, vigor, stink and futz,
Rumbling and grumbling from the other side,
Ghastly reapers were coming for the Nuts.

A hand unearthed from the unknown beyond,
Lit by the light of a mean mugging moon,
Through the mist came one whispering murmur,
The Deadest prints will be arriving soon…

ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM: Day 11 of DDC Merchmas 2023! Three aluminum items today! "Fence Signs," a new color and larger size of our "Decimal Equivalent Chart"...and, a cool "Nameplate Kit."

Al-You-Min-Eee-Umm!!!

DDC-356 "Fence Signs"

merch_site_fence_signs.jpg

WE LOVE 'EM: Old fence signs. Crustier the better. I was in Chicago at Field Notes headquarters a couple weeks back, waiting to be let into their parking lot. And was marveling at the crusty sign on their rolling fence gate thingie. You can see that here. Look at that beauty. Beat to shit, but holding it down.

Couple weeks later, I'm outside a print shop in an industrial part of Portland, and couldn't help but notice how each sign on that big fence surrounding the joint was TRASHED with graffiti and krinkles (Someone backed into a sign six feet up in the air?) and whatever else. Couldn't even read the things, but there they were...INDESTRUCTIBLE. And that's what we made here. Signs to warn folks about messing your property, a stern request to keep from lighting up or welcoming every kind of person into a place. Just as burly as that "Midwest Fence" one back in Chicago and by that print shop here in Portland, and ready to be hung on fence, gate, door or design shop wall. Get it going!!!

Product Details:
01. Screen printed on durable aluminum.
02. Designs inspired crusty fence signs in junkyard, car lots and creepy private properties.
03. Colors inspired by WARNINGS, STERN LANGUAGE and/or PRINTED THREATS.
04. 12.0" tall x 6.0" wide in dimension.
05. Corner holes drilled in each corner for easy hanging on fence, gate or door.
06. The real deal here. None of that digital bullshit here.
07. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
08. Manufactured by Steve Oglesby at the mighty International Graphics & Nameplate Inc. in Vancouver, Wash.

merch_site_two_colors.jpg

merch_site_dec_equiv_02.jpg

merch_site_dec_equiv_04.jpg

merch_site_dec_equiv_03.jpg

Product Description:
Oh man, are these AWESOME. And not like, 13/16 (.8125) awesome....like 100/100 (1.0) awesome.

It's a couple times a day where I have to whip open up my little calculator app to get a decimal equivalent. Be it for a patch 3/8 (.375) of the day, or a decal 7/16" (.4375") away from the edge. Or even a tolerance on a poster trap at 3/32 (.09375") where the colors overlap. And it's like 29/32 (.90625) embarrassing. I was raised by a dad who gave these to his machine shop customers. Handheld versions 11/64 (.171875) of the time, and wall versions 49/64 (.765625) of the time. And those bad-asses lived by them. I have a couple of vintage ones in the DDC Archives, but just know if I started using them, I'd beat the hell out of them like 17/32 (.53125) of the time and they go missing or whatever.

Fed up, I made my own. And friends, THESE ARE THE REAL DEAL. These charts proudly feature our mighty "DDC Hardware" typeface from top to bottom.

The EXACT same material and manufacturing processes as you'd see on a nameplate on a piece of Boeing machinery. Exactly the same. So proud of these. Already used mine twice today! Dang.

Special thanks to Steve from IGN in Vancouver, Wash. for the help on this one! Thank you, sir. They turned out PERFECT.

Product Details:
01. Printed on thick, anodized aluminum 1/32" (.03125") thickness!
02. Screen printed.
03. 3" wide x 5-3/8" (5.375") in dimension.
04. Perfect dimension for holding in your hand.
05. 3/16" (.1875") rounded corners for ease-of-use holding/converting.
06. All the big ones, of course. But we've got the sixteenths and thirty-seconds, and hell, sixty-fourths too! We've got you covered.
07. Pairs well with your standard-sized Field Notes memo books.
08. Quick reference for tricky decimal equivalents.
09. This thing can take a beating!
10. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
11. Great for desk, tool kit, basement lair, cave, nook, lathe, machine shop, printing facility or fix-it shop.
12. Manufactured by Steve Oglesby at the mighty International Graphics & Nameplate Inc. in Vancouver, Wash.

DDC-275 "DDC Nameplate Spirit Kit"

merch_site_ddc_nameplate_spirit_kit.jpg

merch_site_ddc_nameplate_spirit_kit_01.jpg

ONE OUR ABSOLUTE FAVORITE THINGS IN THE WORLD: ...is a simple, unassuming aluminum nameplate. Completely free of sweaty pretension, these industrial gems were simply meant to work, and withstand the wear-n-tear whatever drill press, electrical box, farm implement or sketchy generator it was tacked to was certainly going to experience. And yet, the typography on these forgotten gems is HANDS DOWN some of the most beautiful, balanced, legible examples of how to pack a lot of info into a small space. There's a certain language to them that stands the test of time. Many lessons to be learned!

I have a sizeable collection of the things. Some procured legally, and some...shall we say...simply out, "procured by any means necessary." If I happened upon some junk heap that was destined for the scrap yard or landfill and spotted something on something? Cat paw time, baby! Horked the thing off and beat feet.

Any number of times at one of my live shows across the land some rat kit would approach me in the merch line, smile a big shit-eating grin and hand me a little handful of mangled nameplates. "Got those from my Dad's shop, Draplin...thought you'd like them!" YOU DID WHAT, PUNK? I'd quickly make sure we were in the clear before accepting them. That is some wild stuff, right there. Yeesh!

This little guy is the first of what I hope to be many nameplates made. And we made it into a little, spirited kit. Many more to come so please stay tuned!

Kit Parts:
01. One "DDC" nameplate, stamped with it's own number: 001-500.
02. Two mounting screws.
03. One DDC nameplate metallic decal.
05. One DDC-031 "Reversible Screwdriver with Magnet Top."
Product Details:
01. Screen printed on durable aluminum.
02. Inspired by nameplates across the land...silently holding it all together on tools, compressors, large implements and electrical boxes.
03. 2.75" wide x 1.125" tall in dimension.
04. Two holes drilled for easy mounting.
05. Each nameplate is numbered from 001-500. Stamped!
06. The real deal here. None of that digital bullshit here.
07. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
08. Manufactured by Steve Oglesby at the mighty International Graphics & Nameplate Inc. in Vancouver, Wash.

REMEMBER THOSE HOT DOGGERS BACK IN THE DAY?: ...back in the late'70s and early '80s? I sure do. I remember their cool clothes, crude goggles and wild ways...and their AMAZING beanies! That's where this one starts, but with a twist. A couple years back, I was in a vintage clothing store perusing the goods, and saw this awesome pom beanie hanging there. And when I went to check it out, noticed it was $55 or some shit. Way too much. Bummed, I didn't even try it on. I slithered away miffed, and vowed, I'm gonna make something awesome, and affordable, and scoop all these pirates waiting for people to die, so they can pay their rent.

DDC-352 "On The Ride" Decal 3-Pack

merch_site_on_the_ride_decal_3-pack.jpg

WE SURE DO HOPE YOU ARE: This one comes from one of my very favorite Richmond Fontaine songs. A cowboy affirmation of sorts, it's just always stuck with me. Go get their incredible record "Post To Wire" and dig deep into track twelve. I'm humming that one all the time working around the shop.

.......

"Always On The Ride" by Richmond Fontaine

Maybe you'll wake up on the floor somewhere
Or maybe in some sort of sanitarium or
Maybe you'll call from a dry out center
From a payphone in a suburb

But I hope you're always on the ride
But I know that the ride always ends and
When it leaves it takes you luck it could be
Any morning or any night
In any city or state and you're left with nothing

I heard about Ray he's in Fairview now
He lost his leg in a wreck
Harlin's in jail in Rawlins, Wyoming
Doing three years for breaking and entering
Junior's in California he's living with his brother
In an abandoned house

But I hope you're always on the ride

.......

This one's for Ray, Harlin, Junior and Willy.

(And Willy, if you finally got yer phone back and are reading this, sorry about the jumper cables situation in Elko. Didn't mean for it to go that way. Butch doesn't help in those moment. Plus while I've got you here, please know I'm in a bad spot here in Portland and aim to Western Union you that $17 as soon as I can get a ride into town. Your friend, -Aaron.)

01. Screen printed on thick, weather proof vinyl. Serious adhesives.

05. The real deal here. None of that digital bullshit here.
06. Printed by our buddies at Nameplate Inc. in Cerritos, Calif.

Product Description:
HERE'S HOW THIS ONE WENT DOWN: Way back in 2015, one Will Hodges representing Tactile Turn down in Dallas hit me up with this savory nugget, "My name is Will Hodges and I make sweet machined pens." And I don't have any record of hitting him back? Either it got lost in the mix, or buried, or? Hard to say. Anyhoo, days turned into weeks into months into years and EVERYTHINGELSENESS took over.

Fast forward to April of 2023 and he hits me up again...it rings an odd bell and we get on the phone an hour later. We jawed a bit and got down to business: "How orange can you make it for me, Will?" Within a week I had a couple beautiful samples to try out! And I've been using that first sample for SIX MONTHS... daily daily daily. In and out of my possibles bag. Rattling around on my desk. One flick of that bolt and I'm into the ink stratosphere!

The machined craftsmanship is stunning. Quite frankly, you'll have this pen THE REST OF YER LIFE. Tough as hell, yet incredibly smooth to write with. I love a simple DDC Clic Pen and all, but there's something about these pens that elevates my game on paper. And that's pretty dang cool.

Going back to this one, "My name is Will Hodges and I make sweet machined pens."

He sure does. And we did here with the "DDC x Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen in anodized orange!

From the Tactile Turn site: "We used to offer anodized aluminum pens back in the Slider and Glider days so, when a designer asked about doing a custom run for his brand, we jumped at the opportunity to get some color samples made and they turned out amazing. Aluminum anodizes beautifully, machines quickly with minimal wear on the tooling, and is less expensive than any other material we offer. No telling if we'll keep doing runs or how long they'll be in stock but, if you want to add a cost-effective pop of color to your collection, look no further." (That "designer" is ME!!!)

Product Details:
01. All-metal, durable bolt action mechanism.
02. Anodized as orange as possible.
03. 7075 aluminum body, tip, and top.
04. Titanium internal and bolt.
05. Laser-engraved "DDC" logo on stainless steel deep-carry clip.
06. 5.6" length.
07. 0.43" in diameter.
08. Laser-engraved "DDC x TACTILE TURN /DDC-333" branding on body.
09. Comes loaded with an orange Pilot G2 0.7 mm cartridge.
10. We threw and extra black Pilot G2 1.0 mm refill in, just because.
11. Comes packaged in exquisite, burly packaging. Check that foil hit!!!
12. Proudly designed, machined and assembled in Dallas, Texas by Tactile Turn.
