Screenprinting is the foundation on which A/P is built, and it is also the core of its business. Years of experience coupled with extremely discerning tastes should make you feel completely at ease whenever you send a silkscreen job to A/P. Our shop prides itself on supreme quality and fast turnaround. Let us know what you need and when you need it and we won’t let you down. From giveaways to retail garments, you will be proud to tell your network that your items were printed at A/P.
A/P just purchased a brand new, top of the line, 6 head Barudan embroidery machine. The purpose of this investment was to be able to supply our clients with the absolute best stitch quality. This machine is the same one that the MLB uses to sew there caps. We are one of the few shops in town that offer 3D/ Puff embroidery. Please come by our showroom anytime to experience our capabilities first hand.
The digital printing arm of A/P is dominated by laminated vinyl decal production. We offer the highest quality “stickers” for your business, brand, or birthday. However, this equipment is capable of so much more. For example, banners, car wraps, giclee canvases, posters, flyers, labels, and heat transfers. You’ve most certainly seen our work posted all over Colorado.
The newest branch of A/P is promotional products. We’ve joined on to a network of wholesale suppliers who trade their services in order to provide clients anything ad everything at fair prices. In less than a year we’ve already sold thousands of lighters, ash trays, pint glasses, sunglasses, shot glasses, cell phone wallets, toothpaste squeezers, apothecary jars, key chains, lanyards, magnets, stamps, water bottles… You get the point— Ask us for anything with your logo on it!
We have been delighted to work with the crew at Artist Proof for more than 6 years. While their prices are on-point, it is their ability to act swiftly and with accountability that has secured our relationship.
We have worked with Artist Proof Collective for over five years and we could not be happier. We have used them for shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts and stickers. Every time they help us to create the design and the quality of work is second to none, as is the speed at which they deliver the finished product. We will never use another company for our retail needs!
These guys are rock solid, from concept to final product they made the process easy and straightforward. Worked with us to get product to our stores extremely quickly. Highly recommend!
