1338-40 S. 6th St.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19147
South Philadelphia is known for a lot of awesome things (the Italian Market, Little Saigon), but one of its lesser-known pit stops is Awesome Dudes Printing. Established in 2007 in a basement, this once underground pop-up store specializes in merchandise for schools, groups, bars and more. And call them the old fashioned way, but everything is created by hand. As well as providing a beautiful, personalized, eight-color print on t-shirts, tote bags, and koozies (you know, those foam sleeves that insulate a canned drink), Awesome Dudes has spruced up their neighborhood. An ever-changing mural showcases the equally impressive work of local artists, making this place worth a visit for that alone.
