As a Northern Michigan leader for custom t-shirts, embroidery, screen printing, and other promotional products and apparel, Field Crafts has succeeded screen printing challenges and opportunities since 1977.
Beyond Traverse City and the greater Northern Michigan area, we print for 650 colleges and universities nationally with our patented BookWear® shirt-in-a-book product. But our roots in Northern Michigan run deep and so does our experience with screen printing technology.
In the early days, a one or two color print on a shirt was golden. That didn’t last long. By 1984, we were producing full color prints, and in 1987, we introduced a line of regional designs that included Michigan artists Glenn Wolff, Terri Haugen, Cyndy Callog, Roland Roycraft and others. That line developed into national sales, 60 sales reps and a line of artistic designs that sold throughout North America (some copied by pirates – what an honor, eh!?). All the while Field Crafts kept a steady flow of local/regional custom screen printing in Traverse City and beyond. That’s experience!
We’ve never forgotten our Northern Michigan connection and have recently been sought out more by Traverse City locals (we’ve not marketed ourselves regionally as much as nationally). These people demand and need the skills, experience and depth of a shop that has seen thousands of jobs and has a seasoned staff (6 with 10 to 20 years, 2 with 29 and 35 years, and a number with 4 to 10 years). That’s experience!
When it comes to custom t-shirts, embroidery, screen printing, and other creative services, customer service goes well with experience. If those qualities are important to you, give us a call. We’ll be glad to work with you on your next project.
Field Crafts also creates fully custom promotional products of all types: mugs, glasses, pens, calendars, etc.. Call 231-325-1122 or 800-332-3131 for products and pricing.
