QUALITY ABOVE THE REST WITH THE HISTORY TO PROVE IT
We started printing T-shirts in 1983, mainly focused on our licensing products from the British Broadcasting Company’s television program, 'DOCTOR WHO'.
Our first shop was located in a garage in Old Cherry Creek North, but soon moved to downtown Denver at 1942 Market Street. Although the area was then called 'NoDo' (The area was mostly vacant and claimed by unhouses inhabitants), it later became the infamous area called LoDo. We expanded our business to serve the rapidly growing restaurant and nightclub industries in Denver.
We moved from the market street factory and bought our first building in LoHi.
We began experimenting with environmentally responsible products: water-based inks and organic cotton shirts made in the USA. We would eventually buy organic cotton grown in Texas and begin manufacturing our own line of organic cotton shirts.
Although it took us an entire year to teach ourselves about water-base ink printing we persevered to become one of the leading printers in the country with that medium. This pioneer move became a giant step to the top of the Rocky Mountains.
After several moves in the first 20 years, we found we had hunkered down in our Mariposa Street location for another 21 years. Within that time we became so well known, we can hardly believe it ourselves. We decorated apparel and promotional products for some of the most interesting and prestigious companies and organizations, events, schools, bands…
it’s been an awesome journey.
Many brands were easy to print or embroider for, but clients like the Denver Art Museum demanded highly technical prints for world class exhibits; bands like The Fray needed special attention when they were just getting started on their road to fame; the Denver Broncos winning Super Bowl 50 and we had to print for 48 straight hours! Our reputation and skills have grown and so has our business.
After calling it home for so long we grew out of our Mariposa factory, sold our building and purchased another facility in the Elyria-Swansea area. Our factory is now located at 4400 Garfield, Denver 80216.
We now have a much larger and more efficient production facility with plenty of room to grow.
Our city and state keep growing and it’s our good fortune that the most interesting clients continue to find us and help us grow.
We’re looking forward to the next 20 years and hope we will be able to create beautiful, exciting products and memories for you!
