About us: Located in the Heart of Downtown Albany, GA we are a Federal, State & Local Government Contractor, 8A Certified creative promotions business offering Graphic Design, Screen Printing, Business Signs, and Car Tags.
Our Motto is Albany Strong Since Day 1!
Our Story: The story of Albany Shirt Shop Corporation began on the sidewalks of Albany, GA in the heart and mind of our father Tim Shelton, Jr. -- a local airbrush artist, painter, wallpaper hangar, and carpenter.
He had two sons, Cedrick & Tim, who spend weekends with him learning the craft and working side by side to build the family business Tim's Artistic Art, LLC way back in 1992. Over the years, the business evolved into many things, a car wash and detail shop, business sign shop, and by 2005, a screen printing shop.
In 2011, he passed away; but left his two sons the legacy of continuing the legacy of the family business. Cedrick Shelton later founded The Albany Shirt Shop Corporation in 2014, offering the same products and added embroidery to the list of services.
As the Chief Graphic Designer and proud graduate of Morehouse College, Cedrick manages both businesses with offices in the same two-story building with the same mission, passion and determination to share our family's love of art and craft of screen printing and sign work with the next generation through partnerships, internships, and mentorships with young artists from Albany Technical College, The Goodwill Career Center, Turner Job Corps, Albany State University, Eckerd Connects, and Work Source Georgia.

Founded In 2012 | Veteran Owned & Operated | RLTW
Our story: My printing journey started in the winter of 2011 in Afghanistan when I had decided to quit my defense contracting and go into business for myself. I took all the down time I had before departing to watch as much Youtube videos as I could on all aspects of printing and the industry. When I got home I purchased my first 6x4 all in one printing system from Printa Systems, I attended the training and sold my first job to a mechanic shop a week later. Very proud moment, but also a very big learning lesson. haha.
Like many printers, I started in a garage and due to unfortunate circumstances I was bouncing from garage to garage until I met my first business part and got the shop I've been in for the last 7 years. The first few years I was attending college for business management and running the business full time. It was very tough in the early years to balance everything, but I'm glad I never quit. Today we are doing very well and excited for the future.
My biggest keys to success was the network I formed while in the military. To this day even having been out for over 10 years it still proves to be the best decision I ever made besides starting Sua Sponte Design.

Our story: Just a local guy with big dreams. Happy Devil Collective started, for founder Sam Sapp, somewhere amidst the droning of his 6th grade history class back in 2002 (shout out Ms. Boyd). In the margins of some ratty composition book, "Lucy," the Happy Devil of the collective, came about. Neither a boy or a girl, but an ambiguous being fallen upon this earth for pure enjoyment and a little bit of mischief.
Sam fell in love with screen printing and graphic design back in 2012 thanks to some cool people at Salisbury University. Fast forward to present times, Happy Devil Collective is its very own print making company. Our goal is to make custom designs and apparel available to every market at the best quality possible. Be it baseball teams, small businesses, family reunions, cool lounge wear, or for a peaceful protest. Or if you're a weirdo like us, we will work with you to make something unforgettable.
We are passionate about every project and product we put out; big or small, we'll make your dreams come true. We want everyone to be apart of the Happy Devil Collective.

About Shirt Designs Online (Boston, MA)
Our team is probably the most diverse group of people ever put in one place, but we all have one thing in common, well a couple things, okay a few things.
All of us have some type of background in engineering and we all have a desire to make doing business easier for both the customers and the company owners. Some of our engineering experience goes back as far as the 1980’s (that’s right folks, big hair, leg warmers, the Walk-Man...), when computers were just beginning to show us the possibilities of what they could offer us in the future.
Some of us are strong in software development, hardware, technical expertise and customer service. About five…maybe ten years ago (we are mostly guys with no sense of time), some of us decided to veer off from our professional career path and ventured out into other types of industry, construction, management and automotive were just a few. But one (the smart one, the visionary, the Grand Pu Ba, The Man) ventured into the embellishment industry and discovered that screen printing and embroidery was awesome with tons of great, creative people that were not afraid to get their hands dirty (literally...have you seen our hands?).
So, we brought our collective backgrounds to the table. We felt that some things in this industry could be changed, and one was customers being able to use a design studio by themselves…on-line. We looked around and found a lot of great companies that already had this idea and launched their products years ago, but they were very advanced… too advanced for the typical Joe Schmo who just wanted to have some shirts made for his brother’s bachelor party. There were lots of terms like “layers” and “vector” and most customers thought of onions and Star Wars (think about it . . .) and had no idea what that meant. All they wanted to do is design a shirt, not become a Graphic Designer. We also found other issues with these high-end, high-cost products. If all you wanted to do is design a t-shirt, being required to pick a t-shirt from over 20 different brands and styles was a distraction and took away the fun and created frustration for the customer. Lastly, and most importantly, we found the cost of the service to be far too expensive for the small to mid-sized shop. The startup cost was huge, and the monthly fee on top of that was a bit to high for most shops to afford.
That brings us to our Design Studio. We wanted to K.I.S.S. it (Keep It Simple Stupid)! A Design Studio for everyone. It is simple to use, easy to setup and all at a low cost. We hope you feel the same way.

The Story of Giant Robo Printing
My name is Brian Welch and I have walked a rather long and winding path to get to where I am today. From an early age, I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. My parents used to dissuade me from that path, claiming it was too difficult and uncertain but my mind was made up and I can be rather stubborn. I am 43 now so back when I was in High School, the Internet was still in it's early stages. I fell in love with computers, technology and the Web.
My first business was building computers for both individuals and small businesses. I would source the components, build them, set them up at their office and offer some basic training to their employees on how to use them. I was a teenager at the time but there weren't a lot of people offering that and computer stores were few and far between. Still, it was a lot of work and expense and I knew it wouldn't work long term.
I decided I wanted to move my business to the Web and start making websites for companies. The Internet was so new there were no college classes on programming for the web. If you wanted to learn how to build websites, you had to figure it out on your own so that's what I did. At this point I was fresh out of High School, working full time during the day and going to college at night. Looking back, I am not sure when I slept because after doing my homework, I would teach myself to code. I built a few websites for some friends that I knew and once I had a small portfolio, I started my next company, Perfect Presence, a web design and hosting company. It really took off and I ended up quitting my day job and dropping out of college after my 2nd year to focus solely on my business. It drove my parents nuts but they were very supportive.
By the mid to late 90's I had built quite a few websites for local business but I also worked on a few of my own projects. I had created the first directory website for online business services and had built the first (I think) ad network that was based solely on text links rather than banners. Those projects had peaked the interest of an Internet startup out in Orange County, CA called eFront Media. They were a rapidly growing network of content websites that was on the path of going public during the insane dot com boom. They purchased my side projects for over $1,000,000 in stock options and hired me on as a Director. I got the cover story of the local paper and word quickly spread among people that knew me. I was in my early 20's and just struck it rich (or so everyone thought).
We were just a few months away from our IPO when the Dot Com crash happened and the company took a dark turn. They asked me to do some things I thought were unethical so I quit and went back to running Perfect Presence. I still owned the stock options which were supposed to be the big payoff so I wasn't too worried about it. A few months later, the CEO's computer was hacked and his chat logs were released outlining some really shady business practices (most of us were completely unaware). Later it was found that he was working under a false name and was already wanted for fraud in his previous business. Needless to say, the company never went public and those stock options weren't worth the paper they were printed on. It was a crazy roller coaster and to this day, I run into old friends and acquaintances that think I am this eccentric and humble Internet millionaire.
With all of that behind me, I decided to get int the world of Ecommerce. Amazon was still in it's very early stages and the world of Ecommerce was exploding with small shops. I developed my own Ecommerce platform using programmers from the Ukraine and built a network of niche Ecommerce stores. It got the attention of an investor out in Seattle who was impressed with what I was doing. He was looking to get into the world of Ecommerce but didn't know much about it and didn't have any facilities. At the time I had a small 2500 square foot warehouse and office space along with a few employees. We decided to partner together and in 2006 we purchased SuperHeroStuff.com.
When we acquired it, the site was only doing about $100K in revenue every year. I was a huge comic book nerd (still am) and was pretty excited to take this project on. Over the next 12 years we grew to a company that was doing over $10,000,000 a year in revenue, had 35 employees and had expanded into nearly 20,000 square feet of warehouse space.
It was with this business that I learned a lot about the printing business. We didn't own the license so we couldn't print these products ourselves but since we had become many of these license holders biggest customer, we were able to work with them to get custom shirts and hats produced. We worked with a wide variety of shops that did screen printing and DTG for t-shirts and we worked with New Era to develop a pretty impressive line of embroidered superhero hats. Even though we didn't do that work ourselves, being part of that process was really fascinating, I loved the idea of starting with a design on a computer and making an actual product that people wanted to buy and wear.
In August of 2018 we sold SuperHeroStuff.com and I knew right away that with the money I made from the sale of that business, I wanted to start a print shop. The NBM show in Indianapolis was the first trade show I could find so I went out, took a bunch of classes, met a bunch of suppliers and started on my plan. By November of that year I had purchased my first Epson F2100 DTG printer, my Sawgrass SG800 dye sublimation printer and an Ikonics sand blasting cabinet to do glass etching.
I was pretty familiar with the world of Ecommerce so I launched https://www.brewswag.com, a store selling merchandise to homebrewers and craft beer fans. I never intended to open up an actual print shop. My plan was to launch my own stores and control my supply chain by doing all the printing myself. However, the word got out that I had this equipment and more and more people started asking me to print stuff for them so in early 2019, I launched Giant Robo Printing, our full service print shop. We just moved moved everything out of my basement and garage and moved into our brand new commercial space at the beginning of March. We are excited to see what the future brings and we are really loving the print life.
