About Crooked Monkey

We set ourselves apart from other screen printers by going above and beyond to bring retail quality merchandise to your brand. We focus on high quality design and logistics with a specialty in customer service.

Beyond our screen printing and embroidery capabilities, we have relationships with factories all over the world (yes the world), and are able to bring all of  your fully custom ideas to life.


In 2005, we began selling "f*ck duke" t-shirts out of our dorm at the University of Maryland where my future wife bought our very first shirt. After being chased through the quad by the cops and getting tossed out of the dorms we launched our first line of retail shirts that summer.

Our apparel first focused on funny shirts you could wear out of the house.  Later that year our shirts were picked up by the National Jeans Company and the following year by Lord and Taylor. From there, our line got carried in Urban Outfitters, Saks, Bloomingdales and various other retailers.

In 2012, a local Washington DC restaurant asked us to design their logo and produce their t-shirts, and we were introduced to the world of custom merch for the very first time. In 2016, we officially became a merch agency - where we combine custom design and branded merchandise -- and have yet to look back.

We have since opened up locations in Washington DC, Nashville TN, Louisville KY, Philadelphia PA, and Las Vega NV so that we can serve communities all over the country with our quality custom merch.
