It all began in 2009 with one tshirt designed to promote an album. Interest gathered on Tumblr and the first line of lyric tees was created. Since then, there have been four more LNK collections released so far, each with its own back-story, but all with the underlying inspiration of pop-punk music and the people who live for it.All shirts & hoodies are designed, printed and shipped by LNK founder, Charli, with help from many amazing people along the way. They’re designed for the Liner Note Kids (those mentioned in the all encompassing “Thanks to our fans” in the liner notes of your favourite albums). They’re designed for people who want to wear their love for music, lyrics and bands with pride. They’re designed for you.
2012This line is about that sense of belonging we feel being a part of this music scene and about being at a show and connecting with your friends, the band, and the crowd of strangers next to you.
20112012 LNK calendars were sold on a print-to-order basis. There was a range of 24 lyric designs to choose from, so the calendar could be customised with your favourites.
