We created the Verse & Prose brand to celebrate writers and artists. Inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, we hand-letter and illustrate popular quotes from his plays. Our hope is that we can give Shakespeare fans a new way to show their love for one of the greatest writers in the English language.
Each Verse & Prose design is hand-lettered or illustrated by an artist at our studio in San Luis Obispo, California. The goal of each design is to breathe a little bit of new life into Shakespeare’s words and create something that is fun to wear, interesting to look at and will hopefully help start a conversation.
Verse & Prose apparel features original designs created by artists in San Luis Obispo, California. All t-shirts are made by Bella + Canvas in Los Angeles and screen printed by hand in Eugene, Oregon using water-based ink.
When you make a purchase from Verse & Prose, you are supporting the arts. We donate 10% of every sale to a non-profit working to advance the arts.
