The Anthem Story
It began as most stories do -- in a garage. We were printing our own band shirts on a junky single color press, and came to realize that the San Francisco Bay Area was in need of a reliable source for screen printing supplies. Passion, motivation and drive led to Anthem's formation in September 2009, and the rest, as they say, is history.
April 2010 found us our first real home, a tiny store squished between a health food grocer and Japanese whisky bar. It was here that we broke down the walls to the world of screen printing by offering pre-burned screens to the public. Without the need for a dark room, anyone could purchase a print-ready screen with their artwork and let loose to print on anything they desired!
By 2012 the people caught on and we were swamped! Our tiny store was filled to the brim, so we packed some boxes and moved in to a much larger retail space in the Outer Richmond. With all this extra room our shelves bloomed and we were able to better assist any printer that walked in, called in, or clickety clicked from across the country.
Fast forward to 2015 and we were again bursting at the seams. Our Richmond store was no longer able to contain us and we were in need of something bigger. Much bigger. This led us to our new warehouse in the neighboring city of South San Francisco. Its wide open spaces and sky high ceilings allowed us to greatly improve efficiency to keep up with ever-increasing demand.
We were kids when we got this going, but in the past 12 years we've done some serious growing up and this train will carry on as it always has, by a husband and wife, and a modest crew pumped for printing. So don't be shy, stop on in or give us a call. We're here to help, so let's make it happen!
