It will only be here for a brief time and they are going to make the most of it.

Andrew and Emily Youngren – along with their newest addition to the family, baby Alma – have opened a Pop-up Printshop in Eastsound.

“I’ve been screen-printing on Orcas for over 20 years, selling at the Farmers’ Market and at our previous retail shop Two Drews,” Andrew said. “When we saw the Wood’s Cove location sitting empty, I approached the landlord. She was excited about us being in there for the summer so we decided go for it.”

The Youngrens have a selection of pre-printed shirts such as the Orcas contour map, the kraken taking down a ferry, and local favorites such as “376” and “Lane 3.”

They have a library of vintage and Orcas-themed images that can be printed on a shirt while you wait. The store will also feature items from local print artists Sarah Mikolowsky and Keith Graham, who are both working at the shop.

“We love the idea of customers being able to combine images, so we specifically looked for graphics we thought would fit well together,” Andrew said. “So far people have really enjoyed being a part of the creative process and the opportunity to watch their shirt being printed. Kids have been some of our most enthusiastic customers. One little girl was so happy with her shirt she ran laps around the square, squealing with joy.”

The Pop-up Print Shop is located in Eastsound Square on North Beach Road and open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
