We help our clients get retail-ready. We've tailored our business to help other small businesses, events, and groups grow and succeed through the power of art, ink, and thread. We go beyond 'slap a logo on it' thinking and create outstanding, fashionable and high-quality apparel. We believe the most valuable asset we offer is that we create goods that SELL - we've seen real growth with our customers apparel programs and it's incredibly exciting.
We've based our process on non-toxic & eco-friendly practices. From the inks we use, to our choices for preparation and cleaning, to our awesome filtration system - everything we do is focused on making the smallest impact possible. Sustainability is a deep motivator for us as we evolve our shop and processes.
Hand in hand with this is our goal to push like minded shirt and apparel brands that are using recycled and sustainable fabrics in their garments, consuming less water from crop to cut, and creating good paying jobs for workers in the US and abroad.

We deliver incredible value. We define value as the combination of great quality, great service, and fair pricing. We are not a cheap, slap-a-logo-on-it printshop. We are a high-touch print shop focused on craft and our relationships with our clients. We deliver excellent apparel and the common outcome is increased brand energy, increased sales and profitability, and apparel that better aligns to our clients' brand stories.
We believe shirts and hats are simple, powerful objects.
They quietly impact and evolve our world everyday.
We view every project as an opportunity to make small, deliberate changes to our world. Each project is an opportunity: to help a small business grow, to give a gift to their fans and customers, to outfit and inspire young athletes, to send a message, to mark a festival or event in history, to raise awareness and funds, or - most simply and most importantly - to make some person out there feel great about themselves.
Art. Ink. Thread. It's the small things that make the biggest impact.
