Screen Printing Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts T-shirts: Nick Diaz & Coach Terry Gold
As a young guy living in Brooklyn New York myself, I always enjoy printing shirts for fellow Brooklynites, that’s why whenever we screen print t-shirts for Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts I tend to get excited.
Two weeks ago I was contacted by Terry Gold, the owner of Brooklyn MMA, and was informed that he is hosting a seminar for Nick Diaz at his Mixed Martial Arts gym in Brooklyn New York. Truthfully I don’t know too much about MMA and have no idea who Nick Diaz is so I had to do a little research. A little Googling lead me to find that he is a professional MMA fighter signed on with the Ultimate Fighting Championship AKA the UFC. Nick Diaz was raised in Stockton CA and is in the Middleweight Devision. Terry mentioned that him and Nick are interested in designing t-shirts that can be sold and signed at this event, and that’s where me and my team come into play. We are a local screen printing company in Brooklyn New York and we are good at what we do! So right away we went into design mode, along with Terry who actually supplied the design idea. The design he came up with is a simple block font in the front reading “Nick Diaz – 718 – Brooklyn MMA” and in the back “Stockton to Brooklyn”. I thought this was a pretty sweet design, it shows how Nick is representing not only his hometown, but also the good old Brooklyn!
The seminar with Nick Diaz will be held on November 14th at 8PM at Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts, located at 5012 Avenue N, Brooklyn NY 11234 (that’s right.. next door to us). You can find out more information about the seminar by visiting Brooklyn MMA online or calling them via phone. The shirts are currently being sold in their gym so hurry up and purchase yours before they run out!

Screen Printing T-Shirts & Hoodies For Companies Around Brooklyn
Brooklyn is an interesting city, there is so much that goes on here and this is why we love that our screen printing shop is located in Brooklyn. Here at our screen printing shop we meet new people and print jobs for various businesses every day, and we love doing so! One of the best benefits to working in Brooklyn is the diversity of the companies we are able to work with, from contractors, to gyms to sports clubs. We have recently completed two jobs, which we are proud of, for the Aviator Sports Club and Harbor Fitness.
Aviator Sports Club is a complex located on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn New York that kids and adults come to play basketball, football, ice hockey, soccer and many other sports. They also have a youth camp during the summer and plenty of after school activities during the week. Growing up, I always wen to The Aviator, whether it was to play basketball, or just ice skate. Even my high school senior day trip started off at The Aviator, which was lots of fun with all of my classmates. The shirts and hoodies we screen printed for them are pretty basic and not what excited me, a logo in white ink on the left chest and a STAFF in block font screen printed on the back. What excited me was that I was able to work with a client that has been in my life since such a young age.
Harbor Fitness, on the other hand, is a gym with multiple locations all over Brooklyn. They have locations inPark Slope, Marine Park, Bay Ridge and Mill Basin and are the new leaders in the gym industry. They are celebrating their 25 year anniversary this year which calls for some new custom printed hoodies. We recently screen printed for them hoodies and sweatshirts with a cool 25 year anniversary Harbor Fitness logo on front and an American Flag/Barbell combination on back. As you can see in the image to the right, this is a pretty sweet hoodie and to be honest I would wear it myself. What’s cool about screen printing for Harbor Fitness is that they are located in Brooklyn and all of their merchandise reflects that. Just like our catchphrase is “Brooklyn Screen Printing” their’s is “Brooklyn’s Gym” – representing the Brooklyn borough.
We love to print new jobs and meet new clients day to day, so if you are from Brooklyn and searching online for “screen printing company near me“. Stop searching, you arrived to the right place. our friendly staff and experienced screen printers are here to get the job done for you in a timely manner. Customers service, high quality printing and quick turn around time is our priority!
Over the course of the last decade the process of printing t-shirts has become easier and easier. This is largely due to the fact that technology has evolved and advanced making it easier to make shirts.
Whether you are ordering custom t shirts online or walking into a local screen printing shop – the first step will be to decide what exactly you are looking for. I cant even begin to tell you how many times customers walk into our shop inquiring about orders printed garments who don’t even know what they are looking for. You can order t-shirts and other promotional items for various reasons such as Bar/Bat Mitzvah giveaways, company uniforms and school uniforms.
The next step, and probably the most important step, would be to design and prepare the artwork to be printed on the garments. The reason I say this is the most important step is because without proper artwork you can not achieve perfect screen printing. For example, artwork downloaded in a JPEG format off of the internet is most often only 72 dpi (dots per inch), which would make the art very pixilated and this would be reflected in the final print. The proper way to send your artwork is in a vector format such as AI, PSD, EPS and PDF, using 300 dots per inch.
After sending the artwork and placing the order, the final steps are taken place by the screen printing company. These steps would be to first color separate the artwork and print them into films. These films are then used to burn screens, since screen printing requires a screen for ever color in every design. Once the screens are burned, the press operator then dries the screens and tapes up the edges – in order to avoid and ink leaking out. He then sets up the screens on the press and aligns each screen in order to assure that the print comes out in the desired place and centered. He/she then loads ink into each screens and starts printing shirts and running them through the dryer. Shirts are then folded, boxed and your order is ready!
Ordering t-shirts from your local screen printing company should be a simple and efficient process since t-shirts are a particularly common item.
