IT ALL STARTED
In about 1980, being a guitar roadie and bus driver for a Detroit Band "The Rockets", I was introduced to the t-shirt world in the rock n roll industry. Wow, unbelievable, after the first night I worked for Winterland Productions I was Hooked and never looked back .... still selling t shirts today!
After my rock n roll life, I started a screen printing company
where we did contract printing and promotional products for local businesses, schools, etc.. Then went on to selling Licensed product to Target, Hot Topic, Khols as well as your local mom and pop apparel stores all over the country.
And now it's 2015, I'm getting a lot older, but the equipment is getting a lot cooler, my cotton t shirts are printed with the latest DTG printing equipment, all inks are a eco friendly water based ink it has a nice soft feel with no messy screens of the past and no hazard clean up mess.
All of our UPF 50 Solar Shirts are printed using a Dye Sublimation process, this process allow the upf50 shirts to still breath and moisture wick, it will never come off and if you feel it with your eyes closed, you wouldn't know it was there.
