I started what is now Tried & True Supply Co. in 2011 as a self-taught graphic designer. I’d never heard of graphic design before 2010, so after I heard a friend tell me he was a graphic designer, I googled it, and was hooked. Shortly before my wife, Marcy, and I were married in 2013, I shifted the focus of my business from design to screen printing. This was a natural progression for me that came out of my desire to continue learning design-related skills and to be involved in more hands-on work. I’ve long been fascinated with “how-it’s-made” processes, so being able to make physical realities out of ideas that were translated onto a computer screen just seemed like a no-brainer to me.
