WELCOME TO 25,000 SQUARE FEET OF ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SCREEN PRINTING BLISS!
We go to great lengths to offer our clients the industry’s highest standards of quality and environmental conservation.
Social Imprints’ in-house printing and fulfillment facility is housed in a state-of-the-art warehouse in the heart of San Francisco’s Bayview district. It includes the Challenger III, a 14-station automatic screen printing press capable of printing 500-600 t-shirts per hour, and an advanced fulfillment center for world-class e-commerce, pick-and-pack, and inventory control service. And that’s just for starters.
In 2016, Levis Strauss chose Social Imprints co-founder Kevin McCracken to represent a new generation of apparel makers who are committed to addressing the most important environmental issues of our time. The focus of this year’s Levi Strauss Collaboratory was water – an area of critical concern for the apparel industry.
Eco-Friendly Printing Practices
Social Imprints is one of America’s most eco-conscious printers. Our inks are 100% phthalate-free.
No thermal films allowed! Thermal films are expensive, non-recyclable, harmful to the environment, and absolutely not permitted in our facility! Instead, we use a direct-to-screen imaging system. We also recycle our excess ink to be repurposed for other jobs.
MADE RESPONSIBLY AND PROFESSIONALLY
We believe kids shouldn’t have to work in sweatshops. It’s why we run a sustainable production operation where we employ adults in need of a second chance. Our positions pay living wages, often 15% above the market rate.
Come experience our little slice of screen-printing heaven. Schedule a team-building print party, or a tour of our facility today.
