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.


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.
