She had heard about T-shirt screen printing as a kind of “get rich quick” scheme and figured it was a way to move on from waitressing gigs. Plus it would let the Savannah School of Art and Design grad get her creative juices flowing again.
So Tatum Johnson bought a screen printing book and watched videos on YouTube. Then she and her siblings started designing and printing wacky T-shirts.
Six years later and she is still at it. And while the journey hasn’t been quick, Johnson is good at it. The 29-year-old just opened her own store on Main Street. Called Intrigue Ink, it sells original “funky fresh” T-shirts and hard goods, such as cups and towels with a Montana theme and jewelry sourced from Bozeman artists.
