The Art The Shirt
Boundary Waters Screenprinting was opened with only the customer in mind, quality always precedes quantity. With previous experiences in screen printing shops, it was time for the customer to be treated right. As of February 28, 2011, Boundary Waters Screenprinting has been ensuring customer satisfaction at every turn.
Michael Karns, owner/artist, graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. Mike moved from Wisconsin shortly after college and has been working as the artist of screenprint shops ever since. With the entire business aspect now in his grasp, Mike can now control all of the artwork's unique styles as well as the quality of each print. Each art project that comes in allows him to push his artistic boundaries to new limits. With so many years of experience and awards at his backing, there is very little that Mike cannot do.
Boundary Waters Screenprinting is located in Redding, CA but customers can be found in Davis, San Diego, and as far as Wisconsin. Customers are drawn for Michael's quality, and come back for his personality and ease to work with.
After a year of single-handedly running the shop, Mike decided to make Boundary Waters Screenprinting a family business. In early March of 2012, Mike hired his son, Trevor, to be the shop's Manager. Trevor's precision while printing has ensured the quality of each print be no less than perfect.
Boundary Waters welcomed a new employee in 2015. Trevor Duggan joined the team as a Screen Printer and has learned and grown much in a short time. Tamara Hale was hired in late 2016 to take on the embroidery department. She brings 16 years of experience with her, and has helped the department grow tremendously. Business is growing every day, but with this team in place, the sky is the limit.
