As shirt retailers since 1977 we found most of our garment sources requiring longer lead times and rarely offering custom art and other services. We knew continuing business as usual was not an option. Having to use a different company for each step in the shirt making process was not only limiting the amount of product we could create, it was limiting the amount of new business we could bring in the door. Since we needed to order enough product to last through the busy season and the rising costs and lengthy timelines were becoming an issue.
Our solution: bring the art department and screen printing facility together under one roof and provide our own retail locations with the products we were buying elsewhere.
What originally started as a surplus retail store, transformed into a full service art and production house.
We offer the best prices on the market and excellent customer service because we do everything for the customer in one place; eliminating all gaps in production.
We offer the same quality of goods to the customer that we give to ourselves.
