Inside Vahalla Studios

This weekend I had the chance to go inside Vahalla Studios, Kansas City's hottest screenprint shop. Vahalla has made its name printing some of the most beautiful concert posters especially the series for MySpace Secret Shows. Look for Tad and Micah at Bumbershoot for Flatstock 18 this weekend to score some posters.

Dan Padavic, known to me as Vahalla Dan, promises that a new site for Vahalla will be launching soon with more content and more fun in the next week or so. From the samples and conversation this weekend I gather more posters will be available and some sweet tees too. I can't wait!

Dan & crew are the nicest guys you could meet. Which kind of sums up the KC printing scene, I believe. I don't have enough wall space in my shop to contain all the nice poster work they've done.
