Custom Lifeguard Tower Graphic Print
Both our traditional "classic fit" and new Next Level "premium fitted" shirt styles run true to size. (If you traditionally wear a large, a large in these should fit you. If you like your shirt a little roomy and are ordering a fitted style, you may want one size larger.)
Our shirts are never cheaper DTG printing, these are genuine silkscreen - printed with pride, folded by hand, and shipped with care by humans in Southern Calfornia.
Classic Fit T-shirts:
Our Classic Fit Shirts are made by Gildan and 100% lightweight cotton with a seamless collar crew neckline and full double-needle stitching. A softer, thin feel but a traditional sizing and cut. (Heathers and some colors are polyester/cotton blends.)
- 100% Cotton Preshrunk Jersey knit
- Seamless double needle 7/8" collar
- Taped neck and shoulders
- Double needle sleeve and bottom hems
- Quarter-turned to eliminate center crease
While shirts are labeled "preshrunk" by the manufacturer, like most cotton shirts, these will shrink upon washing. For best results, wash in cold water inside-out and hang dry. That said, these classic fit shirts are traditional shirts and traditional silkscreening, so they should stand up to the normal wear and care of similar shirts you have experience with.
Premium Fitted T-shirts:
Our Premium Fitted Shirts are made by Next Level and 60% combed ring-spun cotton, 40% polyester in most designs. These are made with top of the line fabric that stands up to consistent wear without sacrificing fit or feel with a set-in collar and side seams. While these shirts are fitted, they do run true to size. (Some solid colors may be 100% combed ring-spun cotton.)
- 60% combed ringspun cotton/40% polyester jersey
- 4.3 oz
- 1x1 baby rib-knit set-in collar
- Slightly heathered (unless 100% cotton solid)
- fabric laundered for reduced shrinkage
- 32 singles for extreme softness
- tear-away label
While shirts are labeled "preshrunk" by the manufacturer, like most cotton shirts, these will shrink on their first washing. For best results, wash in cold water inside-out and hang dry. That said, these premium fitted shirts and traditional silkscreening are known for being durable along with incredibly soft and lightweight, so they should stand up to the normal wear and care of similar shirts you have experience with.

Art Posters, Graphic Prints, and Photos:
OsoPorto's museum-quality graphic prints are matte printed on thick, durable, archival, acid-free paper. Printed individually and shipped from several locations in the United States. Framed graphic prints are printed on a semi-gloss 185gsm stock using archival, pigment based inks.
Framed posters and prints do not come matted, but many posters and prints includes a flat white border as part of the print that offsets the image giving a similar appearance as a mat. Framed glossy photographs are matted with a 2-inch polar white mat as a separate layer within the frame.
Our Basic frames (above) are scratch proof black wood veneer with an acrylite shatter resistant front protector. These frames are good quality, but very basic and utilitarian. Our prints and posters also fit most standard size pre-made frames.
Our Premium frames (above) are made of high quality 1.25" natural solid wood and available in white or black. We take extra care to ensure your frame is free of flaws, so you receive a beautiful hand-made product you'll be proud to present and display. Premium frames feature a black paper backing and are delivered ready to display with hanging wire attached. Framed Prints 11x14 and 12x12 or smaller include a sawtooth hanger.
All framed glossy photo prints are in our premium frames - made of high quality natural solid wood and available in white, black, natural, cherry, and walnut. Frames are 1.25 inch wide and photos have a 2-inch polar white mat as a separate layer within the frame. Matte and frame sizes are in addition to the size of the print. For instance, a 10x10 photo includes a 2 inch matte and 1.25 frame on each side, making the total size 16.5x16.5 inches.
Graphic print frames are 1 inch wide and are not matted, but most include a flat white border that are part of the print within the total image size. Visually these offset the image similar to a mat. Frame sizes are in addition to the size of the print. For instance, a 36x24 graphic print includes 1 frame on each side, making the total size 38x26 inches.
Canvasbox prints are gallery wrapped stretch canvas specially tailored for bright, vibrant colors, and rich deep blacks, floated in 1 3/4" deep hardwood black enamel frames and ready to hang. (Note that this frame makes an 8x8" canvasbox to be 10x10" including the frame, and a 12x12" canvasbox to be 14x14" including the frame.)
Each canvasbox print comes with pre-installed hanging hardware. Smaller sizes are also great for standing on a flat surface such as a desk or shelf.

Customize this print with your own street or name to make this graphic minimal modernist scene of one of our iconic lifeguard towers truly your own.
I've gotten a lot of requests for custom numbered versions of the lifeguard tower in this print, so I now offer this way to customize it: Substitute in your favorite street or location in place of the "42 ST" in this print by filling in the custom text blank above. For best results, keep it to 4-6 characters. I will do longer names as well, but note that those have to be smaller text and a different arrangement, and in order to keep the process streamlined, there is no "proof" approval process before these go to print. The typeface is playful and unusual, so keep that in mind.
Please allow an extra 5-7 days for a custom order. Note that custom orders cannot be returned or refunded unless a spelling error is accidentally made differing from how it was submitted on the order.
