The Brand

 What does 'Dodge and Burn' mean?

Dodging and burning were originally a set of techniques used in the darkroom to control lightness, darkness and contrast on a photographic print. Dodging involves selectively blocking or "dodging" a part of the light-sensitive photographic paper during exposure so that the selected part of image receives less light. Burning is the opposite. These techniques are used to print beautiful photographs, where the shadows and highlights of an image are properly exposed. At Dodge and Burn, we take our inspiration from classic photography, cameras, and photographs. And frankly, we just think Dodge & Burn has a nice ring to it.

Women's shirts come in Small, Medium and Large. Please keep in mind that our women's shirts are cut relatively small and fitted.

What is the best way to care for my shirt?

Turn your shirts inside out and wash them in cold water by machine or hand.
Cotton shirts may shrink slightly after being washed and dried. To minimize shrinkage, dry on low or hang dry.

How are Dodge and Burn shirts printed?

All our shirts are professionally screen printed by hand in America. Some of our designs are soft-handed to achieve a smooth, vintage look and feel. Other designs are printed with discharge ink which literally burns the existing pigment from the shirt leaving a beautiful, soft print. All our shirts are extremely detailed and require a high level of skill and accuracy to print.
