Tom of Finland Bandanas

This week, Kweer Cards released it’s latest product: Tom of Finland Bandanas! These bandanas have the markings of your traditional handkerchiefs — along with 12 sexy leathermen, biker boots, flying penises, ropes, and the Tom of Finland logo all emblazoned alongside the hearts & paisleys. They come in 4 different colors (red, pink, turquoise, and royal blue) and look sexy AF around your neck, your wrist, hanging out of your back pocket, and even hanging on your…wall.

Once we unboxed them, we knew we had to set up a promotional photo shoot to help advertise these hot hankies. Here are some of the images featuring the bandanas, our friend Chelsea Zeno, and our creative director, Derek Bishop.

For the design process, we started off trying to incorporate the more photo-realistic illustrations from Tom of Finland’s catalog. The goal was for each quarter to have a different type of “Tom’s man”: The Cowboy, The Leatherman, The Blue Collar Man, and The Seaman. (see the example below.) However, worried that these illustrations might not reproduce well in the screen printing process, we opted to go with Tom’s pen & ink illustrations. Using these solid black and white images proved useful and dynamic. We were even able to pull the perfect “leather boot” image from one of Tom’s earlier drawings and incorporate it the bandana design.

Overall, we could not be more pleased!
Our customers must feel the same — as these Tom of Finland bandanas are selling like mad over here at Kweer Cards.

A look at our latest Tom of Finland Collaboration

We could not be more pleased with our latest Tom of Finland project! We worked along side the Tom of Finland Store and ToF Foundation for months picking the best images and designing this instant classic — now available at KweerCards.com! Each set of cards contains 54 different ToF images. Each suite is broken down into a different type of Tom’s Men: the HEARTS are all the sexy sailors and seamen; the SPADES are the hot leathermen and cops; the DIAMONDS are the studly cowboys; and the CLUBS are Tom’s classic blue collar dudes. (And the two Joker cards are bonus images!) Each number card has a theme too: for example, the TENS are all bare butts, the SIXES are feet/boots and shoes, the NINES being bare chests, and so on.

Bring these cards to your next game night or poker event and you will be the life of the party! These are also great for Solitaire — though you may get distracted by all the sexy fellas and not be able to finish you game! ;)

Pick up a pack today — for yourself or for a friend!
