SCREEN PRINTING F.A.Q.

We love DIY and now A Little Bit Hippy has added a screen printing department! Specializing in plastisol and water-based inks on a four color manual press, our screen printing strikes a balance between bright detailed prints and comfortable to wear prints. We use high end garments to create the detailed custom look that our retail customers are shopping for.

With the addition of our screen printing department A Little Bit Hippy is able to offer merchandise printing services to the public. High end boutique screen printing is perfect for smaller garment orders like bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts, club tees, and personal or corporate gift giving. Shop our handmade clothing and gift line or create your very own, we are here to help you make it a reality.

A Little Bit Hippy is always pushing the limits on what's trending and we seek to offer you more than just another tee shirt. Our focus is strictly on quality over quantity with no minimum order requirements on garments produced in our screen printing studio. Some of our favorite business to business clients include Yoga Jam, Clean Valley Council, Twin Creeks, The Sluggers, and Homes & Hills Realty.
