LOGO REMOVAL SERVICES (L.R.S.) excises unwanted brand names, logos, tags, stains, marks etc.

In their stead, we create new and magical shapes, using fresh colors and contrasting thread. We leave edges beautifully raw, protected from fraying with our signature ‘double-time’ stitching.

As of spring equinox, 2015, L.R.S. is happy to include a smattering of goods from SubOptimal Products!

Once upon a time, a friend gave our founder a t-shirt.

This t-shirt was leftover from a company launch. The graphic was pretty. Miriam had never heard of the company.

Then, the company (which will remain nameless) took off and, blammo!, their logo was everywhere. Although Miriam had no bones to pick with this unnamed company, her opinion wasn’t strong enough to back up a claim across her chest.

Aside from the logo, it was a perfectly good t-shirt. So, using a healthy scrap from an unwearable thrift store find, Miriam replaced the logo while making a weird shape. Logo Removal Service was born.

Every logo we remove means special attention.

The opportunity to remove a logo (or a stain, or some other embellishment) is a chance to add something gorgeous and strange to a shirt, an umbrella, what-have-you. Logo Removal’s roots in the visual arts help us arrive at the perfect shapes and colors during the logo removal process. When possible—on hard surfaces—we leave lovely, blank space where a logo used to be.

Our peculiar shapes, which are not words, icons or recognizable images, behave differently than logos do: They invite questions, curiosity and, just maybe, uncertainty.

Each item is unique.

Every L.R.S. item comes with a ticket showing its unique number. When we remember, we even write the date in permanent marker on the inside hem of the shirts.

One of many approaches to re-considering mass production.

With Logo Removal, we make your item different from the many others that it used to be identical to. Ours is one method to allow an object to have distinction and to make some labor visible.

Giving every item our undivided attention, using slow fashion methodology, we cannot—and nor do we wish to—compete with the volume coming out of sweatshops everywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does LRS do with the removed logos? We store them forever in a well-guarded cabinet. It’s important to save them and also to keep them out of public view.

Are there repeats, like when LRS does a batch of the same t-shirt? Never. LRS avoids automation and even templates like the plague.

Why does LRS want to remove logos in the first place? Not every surface is appropriate for an ad or a stain. You, the logo owner, decide. We’re just here to help.

Would LRS remove a logo from a car? Sure, we’d be happy to.

Will LRS show me what logo was removed? No, we’ll let advertisers do their own advertising.
