The beauty of the DTG printer is that we can print just one. Yup, our minimum order is one. There's no setup fee, no burning multiple screens, no putting semi-used ink back into the bottle. This process is efficient, and because of that you don't have to run out of all your sized before you replish your sold out sizes. You don't have to guess what size or design will sell the quickest. In fact, you could just print one of every size, then when you sell that one, call us


We understand that quarantine crafters have come out strong on poshmark and etsy especially the patchwork fashion crowd. Denim pants, tops, jackets and sweaters made from 15 upcycled pieces. We love and support upcycling and practice upcycling in the Vertical Street shop. We love adding a new print to a piece you want to breath new life into, more on that in another blog. However, if you're looking to add a print to your patchwork, just contact us. We can print whatever

Classroom Art Project

Recently an artist friend helped his daughter's class with a drawing project. Once the students designs were done, the class really wanted to show off their work. What better way than to have all of their art made to be wearable? This 4th grade class from Roseville, CA had 40 shirts printed up for students and parents (and of course, the teacher) to wear and display their creative Dino Otters. What a fun and educational experience! #4thgrade #elementaryschool #art #drawin

Your best friend on a shirt

Hi everyone. We were thrifting last week and came upon this shirt (third picture), so although it's not a Vertical Street dtg shirt, it got us thinking about our friend who painted our shop dog Burl (second picture). Not only can Susi paint your pet (or favorite wild flower), but Vertical Street can then put it on a wearable piece of art for you (shirt, hoodie, tote). We can caption it, or not. You can take your friend with you where ever you g

See, Hear, Support

There's a fine line between earnestness and profiting from repression. This shirt has a black BLM fist on the front left chest, and "See, Hear, Support" on the back. We designed and printed one. A cool kid on a scooter named Chris pulled up and bought it for $10. We're willing to print more, but it would only be right if profits go to a good cause. If you follow this blog or our instagram, you've seen that we've been helping out a local black owned couture shop in Portla


This image of the Portland MAX (Metropolitan Area Express) took some time. I have a full sized poster of the BART system in my garage that I got once when they were updating the maps. This is the kind of iconic image that lets people know where you're from, what you're about, and that you support mass transit. It's good for the earth! I thought about putting "PDX" or "MAX" on it, but I like it the way it is; a nod to locals, or something that needs no explaination. Rememb


Some shirt manufacturers use tear away tags so that us #dtgprinters can self brand our garments. It's never a bad idea to put your name on a quality piece. Unlike the previous blog post, where Vertical Street silently works in the background, this is a chance for us to shine and let the world know that the awesome color design on the sleeve or front or back of that shirt was made by us. Here's an example of how Vertical Street tags our garments: #pdxsmallbusiness #portland
