Hero will be in Seattle for Flatstock 14 which will be held Sept 1-4 at the Bumbershoot Arts & Music Festival. If you are at Bumbershoot be sure to swing by and say "HEY!" and check out some of the new stuff and special prices we'll have. We added a couple of days on our trip so we could attempt to have what some people like to call a "vacation", although the laptops and iPhones will be in tow and we will be working.
However, that means the boutique here in Buffalo will be closed from August 30th until Sept 5th, sorry for any inconveniences and be sure to keep an eye out when we return for lots of new stuff to be released, including posters for Elvis Costello, Feist, Grizzly Bear, and for vinyl, the new Joe Ledbetter Finders Keepers series and the Smorkin' Labbit Series 3, and so much more.

Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th, Hero will be open 10am - 7pm during the Allentown Art Festival and Allen West Festival.
The Allentown Association hired Hero to design the poster and graphics for this year's Allen West Festival which takes place on Allen Street between Elmwood Avenue and Wadsworth. Not only did Hero design the posters that you see everywhere in Allentown but we also created a hand silkscreened limited edition run of the poster that will be for sale during the event at the Allentown Association's booth in the Allen West Festival or at the Hero Design Studio 93 Allen Street. The organization liked the monsters and puppy so much that they also had T-shirts made with the graphics, so be sure to purchase one and support the Allentown Association.
While you are down in our neighborhood this weekend for the Allentown Art Festival, be sure to stop by Hero and check out the Allentown Specials for this weekend ONLY.
