Screen Printing

Bringing Dreams to Life Since 1979.

Our roots are in screen printing, and we have spent the last 40+ years honing and building on our craft. Screen printing is much more than your basic t-shirt, it’s blending skill and science into an exceptional work of art.

Screen printing is also very versatile making it ideal for decorating a wide range of apparel.

BRG Specializes in the Following Types of Decoration


This is the most traditional ink for screen printing and can be used on most fabrics. It’s cost-effective and a great choice for high-quantity runs.


Creates a soft, flexible print that is breathable. Water-based inks work best on lighter color apparel and are a great choice for vintage looks.

Algae Ink

Algae Ink is a unique, bio-based, and renewable screen printing ink. It is exclusively black and is resistant to UV light, and will never fade.


Builds on traditional plastisol printing, by heat pressing the foil on top of the print. This effect lends itself to high-impact designs and should not be used for fine detail.

Metallic Ink

Adds a bit of glimmer to your design. This ink option is great for accenting your design.

Glow in the Dark

Looks white in the daylight, but comes alive at night or under black light. Glow in the Dark inks are water based and available in custom color options.
