Custom T-Shirt Printing in Toledo, Ohio
Do you need custom t-shirts printed? Jūpmode is the answer to your custom screen printing needs.
We get it, there are a lot of options to choose from when you need to place an order for custom screen printed shirts.
Not every t-shirt shop is created equal. We know this because we're one of the few shops in Northwest Ohio that has grown from a small single employee shop to one with over 30 employees.
When you experience that growth, you understand that benefits, strengths, and weaknesses of shops of different sizes.
There are four advantages that we bring to the table that makes us different from the competition:
Creativity - Many people know of us because of our retail brand. Maybe you have one of our vintage Toledo t-shirts or have visited our retail stores. Creativity is the foundation of our own brand and this carries over into the custom shirts we create for other people. Do you need help creating artwork for your shirts? That's not a problem for us. Our experienced in-house graphic designers are thrilled to help bring your ideas to life!
Customer service - Screen printing is a complicated process. That's why we have sales reps and customer service reps who are familiar with the screen printing process to help you with your order. We can be reached over the phone, via email, or in person. Our reps respond quickly to your requests and have the experience to find the solutions you need.
Quality - As a company, we have been screen printing for other people for 10 years. Our manual screen printer, Mike, has been printing for over 20 years. In that time we've learned a lot about the process and we apply that knowledge every day to produce the best shirts possible.
Turnaround time - We know that your expectations are formed by other shopping experiences. You don't just want shirts, you want them quickly. Unlike other printers, we don't have a standard turnaround of two weeks. We check our production schedule before letting you know if we can meet your deadline. We do everything in our power to get your order done quickly.

What to look for in a screen printer
There are a lot of screen printers in any given city. You have a lot of choice when deciding who to work with.
At the end of the day your choice for a screen print shop needs to fit your personal needs. It's important to keep in mind and understand that not everyone needs the same thing out of their printer. Some people need the cheapest shirts possible. Others need finishing and fulfillment services. You might need someone to offer an online store or print your shirts really quickly.
All of these factors, and more, can come into play when choosing a shop to screen print your apparel.
If you don't have specific needs, screen printing is similar to many other industries in that it is a service based industry. T-shirts and their decoration can be considered a commodity. The service provided during and after the ordering process provides the most value to the relationship.
Customer service spans from communication to quality to turnaround time to price. Everyone values each aspect of it differently. The best screen print companies know their strengths and play to them.
Looking for soft shirts and cozy sweatshirts? We've got you covered.
What's not to love about a vintage shirt? The soft, well worn fabric, the faded print, the fond memories. When you order shirts, you want it to become someone's new favorite shirt. The more they wear it, the better it is for your organization.
From 100% cotton to poly/cotton blends to triblend shirts, there are a lot of shirt styles and brands that offer a soft t-shirt to print on. When you're ready to place your order, just let us know you want a soft shirt and we'll send you some of our recommended options.
When you're looking for comfort, there's nothing better than a soft, fleece sweatshirt. Cozy fleece isn't limited to the fall and winter anymore. They're worn throughout the entire year in all weather and all occasions.
Fleece sweatshirts are popular now as hoodies and in a crew style. We print an equal amount of each for our customers. If you're not sure which one to choose, don't fret, you can't go wrong either way.
Pigment dyed and garment dyed t-shirts and crew sweatshirts have been a popular item over the last few years. The trend started with a younger crowd but has spread to all demographics. Garment dyed clothing is typically worn oversized. It's a thicker shirt that feels softer after the dyeing process.
The key to pigment and garment dyed apparel is both the look and feel of the garments. The soft colors, heavier weight, and soft feel is a trifecta that is in high demand right now.

Our Experience in Custom Screen Printing
We started screen printing in house in 2012 in a small print studio in Perrysburg. We were a company of one at the time. Our founder John started with some used equipment and taught himself how to screen print by trial and error.
Over the years the company has grown steadily. While still in our small 1,500 square foot studio space we added an automatic screen printing press, grew to over ten employees, and started offering embroidery as a service. The employees that were hired during this time brought valuable industry experience with them.
In 2016 we moved into our currently building on Adams Street in Toledo, Ohio. This building contains our production facility and our retail store.
The move into this building expanded our space to 13,000 square feet. It allowed us to bring in new equipment including an auto press, larger dryer, and a six head embroidery machine.
The new facility and equipment improves and increases our quality and production capabilities.
Collectively we have over 30 years of screen printing experience in our shop. We operate both automatic and manual screen printing presses.
Our experience printing for businesses and our own brand provides us prospective on new trends in fashion and branding.
Check out this video to see how we printed 28,000 shirts for the Toledo Walleye!
In May of 2019, the Toledo Walleye made it to their first Kelly Cup Finals. To celebrate that achievement, the Walleye gave everyone with a seat a free shirt for all three of the home games in the series. It was a fun week for us as we printed 8,000 shirts for each game.
This is the largest order we've ever printed. It required us to print through the night, order shirts from multiple vendors to meet the demand, drive to Cincinnati and back to get shirts in time, and bring in extra help to get everything done. We can't wait to do it again!
