Custom Screen Printing on American Apparel Shirts & Hoodies

American Apparel Screen Printing

We do a lot of American Apparel screen printing, putting designs onto American Apparel shirts and hoodies. They are popular, being a ringspun, light-weight fabric with a modern cut and a sought-after brand name, and being American made is rare in the t-shirt industry.

It's been a rough decade...

Is American Apparel doing okay?

American Apparel has been around since 1989, and is one of the few brands who focused on actually producing their blank garments in the United States.

There were a lot of issues with the company's founder, and they expanded into retail too much and too quickly, and filed for bankruptcy in 2015 and laid off 2000+ American employees.

But it's still doing okay. The garments are made overseas now, but says it is "sweatshop free." And we still love printing on the garments, so if you're looking for custom screen printing on American Apparel, we want to hear from you.
