My lifelong dream as a kid growing up in Arkansas was one day to become a ‘commercial graphic designer’. Upon moving to Dallas after high school I immersed myself into any phase of printing and design I could learn. My entire adult life has been focused on all phases of printing from offset to digital to screen printing.
In Dallas I focused on apparel & signage with a 300 per hour M&R Sportsman shirt and textile press.
If a client turned their work over to my shop they could relax and know it would be delivered on time and better than they imagined if they provided adequate designs and money up front! Lol.
Clients in Dallas numbered into the hundreds and included Dallas Opera, Dance for the Planet, The Mavericks, The Cowboys, FeEx, Dallas Library, Yahoo, Office Depot, City of San Antonio, Google, etc.
