Now He’s Just Showing Off!

http://www.downtownprintwear.com/services.htmlWe came across a project that had Ben’s name written all over it!  He must have been bored while Cassius was away on vacation because that’s usually when these projects tend to show up.  In case you’re curious, that’s a carbon fiber, pebble puff, flock applique, multimedia design on a Dri-Duck work jacket.  We can guarantee you won’t see this item anywhere else because it’s a DCP original!

Because all screen-printing and embroidery is handled in-house, we have the capability to create unique finishes you can’t get from “the local printer” or the shop with a single-press.  Talk to us about applique, foil, puff, and other unique finishes that will make your project a guaranteed home run!
