20 years ago Brubaker's Screen Printing opened their doors in Bridgport, PA. Today they instill the same care to customer service, quality of work, and overall commitment to the community as they did when they first opened.
Residing at 3 E 4th st. in Bridgeport, Brubaker's has come to be a community staple. "We have our book of corporate customers, contractors, restaurants and bars, and we make sure they get what they need when they need it", said Bob Doll, proprietor and general manager since 2000.
Brubaker's handles all jobs from screen printing, to embroidery to advertising specialties such as mugs, pencils, and calendars. "We do all the art work in house and we've always been successful in meeting our customers needs".
They take care of their own as well. Brubakers has done all the shirts for the Mt. Carmel Feast, the Sacred Heart Feast, as well as the apparel for county workers, local police forces, and numerous amounts of sports teams.
"We've focused on being green as well", said Bob. Not having any idea of how a screen printer could focus on the environment, I asked... "Lately there has been an upswing in materials that we use and sell for our products. The textile industry has focused on sustainable and recyclable products such as the materials they use to actually make the shirts. We also use a greener ink that is biodegradable and is made without toxic chemicals.", he explained.
Brubaker's have prided themselves on being prompt, as well as flexible to the community. They take average orders in the 70 range, but also handle jobs that go into the 1,000's as well as being able to handle orders as small as 20 pieces. "We do a lot of family reunions, parties, and such for personal reasons. It's a good indication of our solid reputation that we get a lot of recommendations when they're looking for shirts", said Damien who prints most of the orders.
Stop in and check out the shop as well. All screen printing is done on premise and you get to see how it's done. With a staff of only three, they always get the job done with the best quality results. "It's why we're successful. Of course there are bigger places, but we've built a solid reputation in the area and they always come back. I think that's an indication of the type of job we do.", stated Doll.
So if you are an established business looking for shirts for employees, or are a start up who needs help designing a logo and apparel, or even just looking to participate in a local fund raiser and need a "team" shirt, give these guys a shout. As many others can attest to, you won't be disappointed!
