About Custom Screen Printing:
Exceeding customer expectations, building lasting relationships, anticipating client needs and delivering superior products and service with accuracy, reliability and integrity is the objective of Custom Screen Printing & Embroidery and owners Jeff & Stacy DeLong.
The DeLongs opened their start-up business in 1997 and are proud to have celebrated their 20th anniversary this year. Located at 1307 Creek Trail Drive, Custom Screen Printing & Embroidery has grown to a 10,000 square foot facility offering everything from a showroom to sales, design, production and packaging in one convenient location. The company has the largest production capacity in screen printing and embroidery in the area, allowing them to take on more jobs with a quick turn time, and also allowing them to do last minute jobs for customers.
Custom Screen Printing & Embroidery takes great pride in their customer service, with communication being a key component. This has led to added services such as free statewide delivery for customers meeting the criteria, customized sorting & packaging for conferences, and the creation of online stores for customized ordering. The DeLongs say they are most excited about the success and popularity of the online stores.
The company continues to increase production and added 2 new sales positions this year increasing their number of employees to 17. Custom Screen also continues to expand their geographical market and has even contracted with a representative in the San Diego area.
Jeff and Stacey are proud to provide a great work environment for their employees, allowing them to grow with the company. Along with training and team-building opportunities for their staff, they also provide time for them to be active in the community. They consider their employees to be family and have worked to increase employee wages and benefits.
The DeLongs believe as a company you are only as successful as the community that supports you, and they feel blessed to be a part of such an awesome community and are pleased to offer their support to many local organizations and events!
