Denver Screen Printing and Embroidery

Read along with us as we dive into a list of the best screen printers and embroiderers in Denver.

As you probably know, Denver is booming with organizations and businesses- likely seeking custom apparel. 

A quick fun fact before diving into custom apparel talk: 5,280 feet are in a mile. Flip that vertically, and you’re exactly a mile above sea level, giving Denver its nickname, the “Mile High City.” 

The options are endless when choosing screen printers and embroiderers in Denver, CO. A gorgeous, hip city filled with talented and artistic people calls for custom apparel to help express creativity.

We assume you've found this article because you are local to Denver, CO, searching for a business to create custom threads for you and your brand or organization, yeah?

We've been in the industry for over a decade and are always interested in learning about the nationwide screen printing fam, so it's exciting to share some of the best options with you. 

We're here to share some of the best screen printers in Denver, Colorado. 

We compiled a list of some of the most highly-rated print shops on Google and added a bit of a background context about each shop so you get to know them a bit. 

*Note: These are in no particular order; they all had great reviews, so we wanted to share them with you.

Alright, enough chit-chat. Let's get into it. 

Now for some of the most highly-rated screen printers in the Mile High City: Denver, CO.


Okay, so maybe you know, or you don't. BUT Real Thread is based in sunny Orlando, FL.

You may think, "Wait, this is an article about Denver, CO… right?"

That is correct. HOWEVER- Real Thread ships nationwide, helping many businesses in Denver over the years.

SO… Let us be the first to tell you that Real Thread is here to be your one-stop shop for all things custom apparel.

Real Thread screen prints with water-based inks. These inks are superior to the industry standard ink (plastisol ink). What's the main difference between the two?

Instead of coating the shirt with a thick layer of plastic, water-based inks dye the garment directly with your print. The ink soaks into the garment's fibers, dying your design INTO the shirt instead of onto it. This results in a super soft and long-lasting impression (literally AND figuratively). 

Real Thread also offers embroidery, fulfillment, and a wide range of add-on services that set us apart from your average print shop. We even have glow-in-the-dark ink that'll make you say "OOOH" and "AHH" and things of that nature.
