Our path to sustainable screen printing

Water Reduction
When cleaning screens, we use an EcoRinse machine which reduces water consumption by applying the precise amount of water needed. The water is then filtered and recirculated as much as possible

Packaging that takes care of your items and the environment

More Recycling, Less Waste
We’re improving how we fulfill and ship your orders with packaging that’s 100% biodegradable or recyclable. From tape with plant based adhesive, to reusable and biodegradable mailers, we’re looking at all aspects of our warehouse operation to use better materials.

Energy Savings
Hundreds of bulbs have been upgraded to LEDs throughout our 200,000 sqft of facilities.

Bubble Mailers

These mailers are biodegradable within 5-60 months.

Poly Mailers

A dual adhesive strip allows these 100% recycled mailers to be used again before being recycled.

Tape with Plant
Based Adhesive

A plant-derived glue makes the tape adhesive biodegradable as well as the paper.

Air Pillows

No more styrofoam peanuts. Instead we’re using 100% recyclable air pillows to cushion shipments.


Recyclable paper is transformed into honeycomb packaging material to protect glassware.

A culture that benefits our people and the planet

The people we work with become close, with a common set of company values we all stand for. Our first value is to fight for better and the final one is to do the right thing. Those bookend values drive much of what we do and how we’ve built our culture. We give people flexibility in how they do their job, so work can flex around their life, instead of the other way around. We have a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion committee to spread awareness and love throughout the company. We care about sustainability in the swag we make and the buildings we occupy. We believe in the cause of each of our clients and help them spread the word with the merch we make.

Consider the whole supply chain

In order to make great swag, we have to work with great people, factories and suppliers. With having our own importing team, we have the opportunity to get deeper into the supply chain to check on compliance and Code of Conduct.
