Our specialty is the screen printing (and designing, if required) of custom t-shirts and other apparel; but there are a lot of visual projects we're equipped to tackle!
Graphic design, embroidery, illustration, logo creation, silk screening, photo restoration, even web development; if you need us, get in touch! We're here to make things easy.

Just about every screen printing company starts off doing t-shirts, and only t-shirts. They’re the most straight-forward thing to print. But almost every different thing you want to print on requires a different printing supply, or piece of equipment, or technique.
We’ll get into the endless complications of each silkscreen process in another post. For now, let’s look at hats!
Screen printing is done by lowering a screen down onto a substrate, and squeegeeing ink through the openings in the screen onto the fabric. You can picture how this might look for printing on flat fabric like on a t-shirt. But what about something that’s more of an odd shape, like a hat? How can you print on such an irregular surface and expect each color printed to line up with the last?
For this, you need a press accessory to turn a “weird” surface into a flat, printable one. Long story short, we picked up one of these, and now we’re also hat printers!
Whenever we humans create/manufacture something, the sound-minded of us wish to do so with as few environmental/health impacts as possible.
At Rocket Science sometimes the use of synthetic materials is unavoidable. However, whenever possible, we prefer to print on-and encourage the use of-100% cotton t shirts, sweat shirts, and other garments.
We’re also pleased to know that the inks we use for printing (although we can’t exactly call them organic) are Phthalate-free.
You can find a full description of what a Phthalate is on Wikipedia, but the short version is that they are plasticizers; IE substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, and longevity. Part of what makes Phthalates bad is that they can easily leach and evaporate from plastics into food or the atmosphere, causing a variety of ailments with excessive long term exposure.
Even with the new, improved inks on the market, we strive to send as little of these materials down the drain as possible. We re-claim as much unused ink as possible at the end of each print run, and when we clean up, we use soybean-based cleaners.
At Rocket Science, we strive to do no harm, and we’re always open to questions and suggestions regarding the environment impact of the work we do.
Ask almost any business owner, and they’ll agree that in terms of ensuring the longevity of their organization, there’s literally nothing more important than promoting the products and services they provide, as well as the business name, logo, and brand that represent them. Here’s why we think you should order some custom printed shirts.
Billboards, TV ads, radio spots… These are all effective methods of getting your name out there. But they’re all very expensive, especially when purchased on a continual basis.
T-shirts on the other hand, can be had for as low as $5 or $6!
Consider that most advertising dollars spent are on time-limited runs.
When you hand out shirts to employees, customers, or just the general public, you never know how many times that garment will be worn over time, or where, or by who!
Not only will people appreciate you and your organization for giving them something free, they’ll also be hitting the streets, flashing your name and message around at no further cost to you!
Even if a person just wears your brand around the yard, you’re still getting to more eyeballs than you would have otherwise, and are staying in people’s consciousness!
Given the low cost and fully, quickly customizable nature of shirt printing, your limitations are very minimal.
Already ordered shirts for your crew, but now wish you had something for an upcoming event? Just place another order! Most projects are not draining monetarily, or in terms of time; and most small design/messaging changes are a snap!
Let’s be honest. Think about cracking open a box of your very own custom designed t-shirts with your brand and messaging on them. That’s fun! It’s exciting to put something on that shows off what you have to offer the world!
