We also run DiscoveryLab events for entrepreneurs to pitch plans for free.

About us

We're a family that's lived all over but decided to settle in Edmonton.

We love this city and its river valley, where you'll find us hiking, biking or canoeing most days.

We've put what we like about this city into our designs.

The "e" traces the North Saskatchewan River and the Anthony Henday highway that circumscribe our city.

When superimposed on our city it represents the world's largest "e" and would be visible by incoming aliens.

We coordinate with our neighbours including St. Paul, where the world's UFO landing pad is based.

The "e" design doubles as a map that can include coloured dots to guide people to where cool places are.

We want to help residents, visitors and aliens find Edmonton's attractions and become a little more Edmontonian.

Each image is custom designed and screen printed by hand in Edmonton onto soft breathable 100% cotton T-shirts.

Wear one of our limited edition prints, help an alien and tell your story.

We were featured by Make Something Edmonton and Edmonton Made.

We continue to run as a proud Alberta-based company with spinoffs including DiscoveryLab.
