Do you want to order some custom t-shirts that make use of screen printing? Below you’ll find 10 top screen printers in Iowa who can help.
Broken Arrow Wear is an Urbandale legend, and for a good reason. Like others on this list, Broken Arrow has been trusted by dozens of multinational companies; names like Marvel Studios, Target, Google, and Facebook are only a few of the many well-known household names in their list of happy clients. Broken Arrow is open from 8-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and closed on weekends.
One of Broken Arrow’s most unique offerings is its “all-over printing.” This means that, unlike other services, Broken Arrow allows you to print designs anywhere on the clothing, rather than just on the front/back/sleeve. This allows more freedom and, importantly, creativity when building your perfect cozy sweatshirt, t-shirt, or hat.

Next on our list is Cedar Rapids’ Level 10 Apparel (AKA Red Ball Printing). Level 10 is locally owned and operated by people who are genuinely talented at what they do, and it shows in their work. With experience serving retail stores, schools, marketing events, and more, it’s likely they have just the trick to help you out. Level 10 is open from 8-4 Monday-Friday and closed on weekends.
What sets Level 10 apart from the competition is its staff. Most printing/manufacturing shops have some form of design ability, but Level 10 is a level higher (pun certainly intended). Whether you need a fully from-scratch design, recreation and rebranding of an existing design, or advice and coaching on making it pop, Level 10 is an excellent call to make.

3. Apparel 1
Apparel 1 is another Cedar Rapids firm, though they offer a slightly different range of services than Level 10. Where their competition focuses on the in-house top-notch design and art teams, Apparel 1 provides a massive selection of items to get printed and embroidered. Apparel 1 is open from 8-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
From the (obvious) screen printing and embroidery to unique promotional items, Apparel 1 has done a bit of everything. You’ll find that they offer the expertise that comes with their team’s 75 years of combined experience in embroidery and screen printing (which is always lovely); perhaps more importantly, though, you’ll be charged reasonable prices for shocking turnaround times.

Next on our list is Davenport’s Elite Ink Printing. While they’re somewhat new to the scene (having opened in 2015), it’s clear that this family-owned enterprise is garnering attention for a good reason. They offer top-notch screen printing, embroidery, clothing design, and promotional products for just about any use you can imagine and have been featured on local television as a favorite. Elite Ink Printing is open from 8-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Whether you need promotional/marketing apparel, clothing for school and sporting events, or just want a really cool shirt, Elite Ink Printing is, well, elite. Their in-house design team has come up with some incredible designs, and they’re always happy to help you build that next eye-catching logo.

Milford’s CC Screen Printing is your one-stop shop for all things promotional and comfy. Whether you need a screen printer for company merch, cozy active and loungewear, or promotional cups, mugs, pens, and the like, CC Screen Printing has done a bit of everything. They’re open by appointment only, though, so be sure to reach out and schedule a meeting to learn more.
CC Screen Printing has quite a few tricks up its sleeve. While they obviously offer screen printing (it is in the name), they have a few other nifty solutions for quite a few problems. Embroidery, heat-pressed vinyl, and dye sublimation are equally available, along with a few other specialties that you’ll need to see to believe.

Old Capitol Screen Printers is based in Iowa City. What began in 1989 as a simple operation out of a veritable shoebox has grown into a new building over the years to accommodate Old Capitol’s well-deserved growth. They’re open from 9-3 p.m. Monday-Friday, so be sure to reach out with questions earlier rather than later.
While it’s evident that screen printing is (once again) the main focus here, Old Capitol offers quite a bit to its customers. From awards (trophies, plaques, etc.) to clothing, branded promotional gear, and bags, it’s more likely that you’ll struggle to find a service they don’t offer. Ultimately, this goes to say that between Old Capitol’s decades in the business and top-notch selection of services, there are few better screen printers around.

Cedar Rapids is home to many businesses, including ESP3’s. With over 60 years of combined industry experience between staff and nearly 20 years in business, it’s hard to imagine that ESP3 is anything but top-notch. They’re open from 7-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and from 7-3 p.m. on Fridays.
As mentioned above, ESP3 offers quite a bit to its customers. What sets them apart from the competition the most, though, is that they offer vehicle vinyl lettering (along with the usual screen printing on t-shirts and such). But ultimately, if Nike and Adidas can trust ESP3, you can too – so give them a call!
