Screen Printing

Screenprinting is our specialty! The owner of The Inkwell Press has been in the screenprinting industry since 1996. Since 2007 we have been building our business on a reputation for retail-quality printing that meets the deadline.

Starting a brand or business but need a logo or design created? We can help with design and branding that focuses on creating brand guides designed with merchandise and marketing in mind.  We also provide a LIVE printing service if you want to add an activation at your next experiential event. Inquire within!

In addition to traditional garment printing, we also offer digital (DTG) printing for full color designs on low quantities.

We can screenprint on flatstock if you are interested in reproducing artwork on paper.  We are interested in producing more poster art in 2024!

Feel free to reach out to one of our sales reps if you have any questions.
