Once a logo has been created, incorporation into any future design elements is a snap. A logo can be printed on different tees as an everyday work uniform, placed on a bumper, or slapped up on a popular bar’s fridge as a sticker.

2. Repeat Viewings

Your budget goes farther with custom products that include yournew logo­­especially if printed on an item like a mug or t­shirt that can be used again and again. As you gain clients, your logo will start popping up everywhere, each sighting a reminder that you are open for business! Even though promotional products like flyers or posters have their purpose, they can be easily thrown away before many see them. With repeat ­view items, your logo makes each cent worth it.

3. Vision-­Glue 



Don’t forget the benefits of the process of logo design. Creating an image that represents your brand or company in a succinct, catching and bold way forces you to question your vision, hone in on particular details and zoom out to see the larger symbol of what you’reafter. A logo can act as a glue, holding together the pieces of your business in a holistic image. To be successful in today’s competitive and diverse world, it’s important to creatively think about your branding. A logo can help you do just that!

4. Team Morale

Asheville Print Shop & Screen Printing expands into storefront on Patton Ave; Grand Opening party to be held February 11, 2016.


West Asheville, NC – Asheville Print Shop & Screen Printing, a local, full-service printing company has expanded into a storefront at 1238 Patton Avenue, Suite B.


The almost 2 year-old company had previously been operating in facilities at a smaller location. Despite these humble origins, the company has already printed shirts for some of the most notable businesses in the area – Hi Wire Brewing, Roots Hummus, Catawba Brewing, Oskar Blues, 98.1 The River, and Rockys Chicken Shack, just to name a few.


“The new space means better visibility and a more accommodating place, right in the heart of beautiful West Asheville” says Jacob Ballard, Founder & Co-Owner.  “We can’t wait to become more active with artists in the community.”


The increased size of the facility is also a boom to production. Co-Owner and Head Printer Timm Watrous explains, “We’ll be able to fit in a second press, which will help us a lot with turnaround times and specialty printing.”


In their quest to be Asheville’s premier t-shirt and speciality printer, Asheville Print Shop & Screen Printing is also improving its web presence. Their new website, focusing on the customer experience, launched this month featuring an e-commerce store. In addition, the company is one of the only in the area to provide onsite live printing services. You’ll find their booth at events like the Hot Chocolate 10K, The Goombay Festival, Asheville Wing Wars and more.


The public is invited to celebrate the company’s expansion at the Grand Opening party on Thursday, February 11th, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. There will be free food and drinks, live printing, and a t-shirt sale featuring designs by local artists such as Evans Prater (MountInspiration.com) and Stu Helm. There will also be giveaways and a lucrative raffle – the winner gets 24 t-shirts printed with their design or business logo.




Asheville Print Shop & Screen Printing has five full-time employees and is open 9-5, Monday through Friday. They offer full-service screen printing, embroidery, graphic design, and digital printing services.
