Duck Dynasty’s beloved tea-sipping Uncle Si is coming to Boerne’s Tusculum Brewing Co! He will be headline a meet and greet hosted by local apparel company American Scroll this Saturday, September 18, from 11-6 at Tusculum Brewing Company, 236 S. Main St. The public is welcome.
Uncle Si is celebrating his recent, and first, t-shirt collaboration with the new Boerne company American Scroll. The shirts, made from fabric produced in the USA and printed in Boerne, Texas, feature famous quips and icons associated with Uncle Si, and many showcase hand-drawn scroll designs by Weldon Lister, co-founder of American Scroll and nationally-known custom engraver. Two additional co-owners are Jenny Forks, of J. Forks Designs and Billy Lister. The company features a robust apparel line of t-shirts and hoodies featuring designs based on faith, Texas pride, patriotism, historical events, and more.
“Our mission at American Scroll is to place emphasis on faith, family, and freedom and to keep our values front and center,” said Jenny Forks, co-owner. “These are values that Uncle Si embraces as well, so a collaboration was a very natural fit. The designs are beautiful, wholesome and fun, and really reflect our mission. We’re excited to launch the line.”
American Scroll and Uncle Si connected through the unique work of Lister, which caught the eye of Uncle Si and his manager and a friendship soon developed. An idea was pitched to merge design, family values, and Uncle Si’s unmistakable personality and the line came into fruition quickly thereafter. Shirts will be available for purchase at Saturday’s event and are currently for sale at www.americanscroll.com.
The collaboration will bring Uncle Si to Boerne several times a year, and new designs are always created, fine-tuned, and approved by everyone on the team. Also of note is American Scroll’s recent selection as the official t-shirt designer for the Alamo. This new line is set to debut in October and will be available in the official Alamo gift shop and online.
