About Us

For over 20 years the Kirkwood Trading Company has been providing professional t-shirt screen printing. Starting out as a retail store front selling Grateful Dead t-shirts, customers started asking us if we could print custom t-shirts. We looked into the process and the next thing you know we have a tiny little press with a home made exposure unit and we were off and running. As the popularity of Grateful Dead t-shirts dwindled the demand for t-shirt screen printing sky rocketed. Within a year we had to move into a larger facility to keep up with the demand of our local clientele.

Fast forward some 20 years and here we are still providing quality t-shirt screen printing in Kirkwood. We are a family owned business who still prides itself on keeping the business values we had when we began. We propose to offer a great product at a fair price and thus far it’s worked because we have built long lasting relationships with our customers and they continue to come back order after order.

One key staple in our business model has always been and will continue to be getting the customers order done on time and correct. Actually more often than night we have customer orders ready before their due date but let’s not split hairs. We will just have you know that when you come to the Kirkwood Trading Company for your t-shirt screen printing needs, you’ll always have a firm date as to when you can expect your order to be complete.

Our success and growth is directly due to the product and service we provide time and time again. Over the past few years the t-shirt screen printing business has become a competitive market and we’ve seen a lot of companies come and a lot of companies go. I think the secret to our success has been due to exceeding customer expectations in the customer service department as well as their finished custom t-shirt product. We offer the fastest order turn around in the area as well. When everyone else has always been at 2 weeks, we have always been 4-6 business days. In recent years we have been flattered to see other competitors lower their turn around time because it lets us know our history is something to be admired even among our competition.

And it’s not just t-shirts
We offer a full line of apparel which includes t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, bags, towels, sweatpants, dress shirts, pajama bottoms, and much much more. We are experts are providing custom apparel for a spirit store or online retail store for things like booster clubs, fundraising, team and fan wear among other things.

We provide proofs to customers before every job to make sure there are no mistakes. Let’s be honest, mistakes happen in every business and in 20+ years we have kept ours to be few and far between. If at all possible we appreciate every phone call or price inquiry we get and should you have a tight turn around time or a rush order, no problem and if it isn’t a big inconvenience we typically can do so without charging fees.

The next time you are in the market for t-shirt screen printing or other custom logo apparel needs, give us a call and see what we can do and how our experience can provide you with the best custom t-shirts possible.
