(((Special Episode)))

Catch up with Babylon Burning Screen Printing, Inc.'s Mike Lynch in this special episode.

Mike talks about adjusting his business in the face of a major downturn, with many of his usual clients pulling back on T-shirt orders. While he normally keeps his screenprinting shop open, literally, to the public, his doors have been mostly closed during the pandemic. And 63 Bluxome Street Gallery, which is part of Babylon Burning, has been closed as well.

While the gallery isn't open, you can buy various merch that they make over at their Big Cartel site.

Our friend Jess Cuevas designed our latest STUD tee for Folsom St! Jess is an SF raised artist. The STUD was the first club in San Francisco that he snuck into in 1996. He also worked at the STUD in coat check from 2011- 2013 and turned that little booth into a t-shirt store on Friday nights during Club Some thing.

The shirts are $40 and available in white or soft pink. A portion of the sales of this shirt will go to The Transgender Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project is a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization working to end human rights abuses against transgender, intersex, and gender-variant people, particularly trans women of color in California prisons and detention centers.

spotlight: Babylon Burning Screen Printing, Inc. is the oldest screen printing shop in San Francisco, and has printed for countless small businesses, restaurants, schools, local artists and more in its over 40-year history. It was founded by Steve Patton in 1980; however, he started out in 1976 as a very small do‐it‐yourself setup in his garage at his house in Bernal Heights. Patton chose “Babylon Burning” as the business name after the song “Babylon’s Burning” by The Ruts.

Today, Babylon Burning continues their long history of taking on projects that help support local San Francisco businesses. Some of the their recent projects include designing tote bags and t-shirts to help benefit the Balboa and Vogue Theaters, t-shirts and sweatshirts for The Stud, and shirts for Black Girls Code to name a few. Follow them on Instagram for more projects you can support, and learn more about their colorful history in our new blog post:

We all felt that keeping our scheduled Xmas dinner was important. We got to forget what happened to our business and just be around each other again. We’re moving forward together with the help of a lot of great friends. Thank you Jaimi and Adam for hosting us. We’ll do it again next year! Oh, the guys got some 826 Valencia merch done so I could deliver it to them for the holidays.

Busy, but positive Monday ❤️Met the crew at the shop and got some deliveries done. and once again letting us use their spaces to get our jobs with and done . We painted the gallery door and got new stickers. Lots of wheels moving behind the scenes to get us into a new place. Thanks to everyone for following our journey here!

Started today with a visit to , Mike has been gracious enough to let us finish some work in their printing space. We were given the opportunity to be interviewed by KCBS at Babylon. It was quite emotional, but delivering some shirts we donated to my good friend Chris at Groove Merchant Records cheered my spirits.

It’s been a week since the event, but we are pushing through, we have to stay hopeful. Grateful for everyone’s support, we are persevering through the generosity of others right now❤️

Day 4. Got to see the fire up close for the first time. 💔 Some positives today. We got delivery of some stickers Seth helped design for Laundromat Bagels. Also Rachel from The Stud and Sam from Fredericksen Hardware stop by to pick up their products. More shout outs to DCL Productions and ATG for letting us print in their shops! Community!! Looked at some building today. Hoping for a great Friday! The Four Star Theater opens tonight, with my brother Clam having an art opening in the front of the place. Opening for some good distraction.🙂

Day 3 started early.
Organized in front of the shop. Avery, Shaq, Nick, and Elijah were on it today. My crew is truly the back bone of this business; printing in unfamiliar spaces, yet still getting the jobs done. So proud and appreciative of them.

We received help from , and —all local screen printers showing us what community is all about. We got some jobs printed and made a few deliveries. saw us at an in-n-out parking lot and gave us two cases of water as a kind gesture. They heard about the fire and gave us some hugs.

Spent a little too much time inside the shop today, so much history lost…it’s really catching up to me. Heading home to get some rest and will hopefully feel better by tomorrow.

Thanks again to all who are donating to our GoFundMe. Thank you and for their fundraiser they are raising for us. True community at work.


SF legacy business owner vows to rebuild after devastating fire

Doing some street organizing and then headed over to our friend Mike Law. He has business called Against The Grain. A true friend to help us out today to print for Everett Middle School.

First I want to start by thanking everyone that is kicking in for the goFundMe account! It’s truly how we’ll get back on our feet. I have tears in my eye while I write this. So grateful!!! I wanted to start a little update on what’s happening everyday to let folks know we/I will not let Babylon Burning die. Most of the guys met me at the shop and after some hugs we started making some plans. 2 friends have offered us their space to print so we can help out our clients through the holidays. Made some deliveries to Farley’s and CAAM today. The SFFD is a big client of mine so when they rushes into Babylon during the fire they threw some finished boxes off to the side knowing the jobs were complete and ready to ship out. Can you fu***ng believe that?!! So much was lost but some stuff was saved. A lot of the history (paper, poster, photos) is lost but after this is all over and we get to access the shop again we will pull a lot of stuff out of there and hopefully bring it to our new home in SF. We for sure need help. We need the right people to see the importance of a San Francisco Legacy business and help us out. Behind the scenes today was Avery, Judy and Seth. It’s a group effort to keep our wheels spinning. Don’t fret. We’ll be back. Love Mike❤️

On December 2nd, Babylon Burning experienced a devastating fire that consumed our legacy business of 45 years. All of our equipment has been either water damaged or destroyed as well as decades of San Francisco history gone. We are in need of aide to support our staff until we are able to get back on our feet and find a new location.

Babylon Burning is a locally-owned and family-operated business and community art space in San Francisco; operating since 1976. To our beloved community, please donate and share this far and wide to get us back up and running. Thank you. Our link to our GoFundMe is in our bio.
