What do you do at Timothy Ink?

Timothy ink is a full service decoration company able to fulfill your needs for screen printing, embroidery, and promotional products.

Our most common printed item is t shirts. Fronts and backs are the most common print location however we are capable of printing sleeves, and tags if necessary. Timothy Ink probably prints 100 t shirts for every other item I do print. However we have printed thousands towels for customers this year and a few thousand sweatshirts as well. We now print reversible pinnies as well as tech t shirts for 5k s and uniforms for businesses such as plumbers , contractors , hvac and landscaping companies . Shopping bags are another common item to print as well. Sometimes compromises must be made for location and size of the logo however if you have seen someone else print there I can probably do it as well.

We can print up to eight colors on our Automatic press, which I named Snake, which can allow us to print up to 600 pieces an hour and is the workhorse of the shop. It's an M&R Diamondback new in 2011 with a few addons that didn't come from the factory such as lasers and specialty rollers to give super smooth prints. Ninety percent of what I currently print in a given year is one color white ink on a colored shirt but check out my instagram page to see a collection of past showcase work.

My humble manual, which I named Forrest Gump the slower older brother of Snake, press is pictured below the big blue press which is what I started the company with in 2009 in my parent's garage. It is a simple 4 color 4 station Riley Hopkins press that has approximately 90,000 prints on it and it is still used today. This manual press has a few upgrades since I first bought it such as higher quality aluminum screens, I started with wood ones, and aluminum pallets which replaced the burnt up wood ones that did the job for the first two years. Today I do not look forward to the days pulling the squeegee anymore but it still does a great job on the small runs and odd location prints, and I wouldn't ever sell it.

In 2016 Timothy ink was able to purchase a 6 head Tajima embroidery machine. This machine is now allowing Timothy ink to produce embroidered polos oxfords jackets Uniform shirts bar shirts and hats with the classic embroidery look with the level of detail that would be impossible to do by hand. Over the years of ownership this machine has done thousands and thousands of pieces.

In summary if you are need of anything apparel related which include screen printing embroidery on products such as hats t-shirts Tech teas polo shirts or you need any uniforms for any type of events such as 5k s school events promotional products family reunions Timothy ink probably has the capacity to fulfill your need for any of those items.
