Why us?

Sure, we do screen printing and embroidery. That’s the heart and soul of our company. And apart from being very good at it, we love it. But there is so much more to who we are.

Just a couple students of the University of Tennessee, we founded Threds back in 1994, and we’ve learned a lot about building a business and positioning a brand since. What began as a small vintage jeans and T-shirt shop has grown into a 30,000 square-foot facility that provides a plethora of apparel and promotional products and services, delivering locally and to nearly 70 countries around the world.  

Our repertoire has increased over time as well, and we’ve become a point of contact for everything from creative services and event support, to e-commerce and merchandising, to warehousing for our fulfillment programs. Think of us, Threds, as an extension of your marketing team, the company to call when it comes to Expanding Your Brand Reach.

In short, we’re the company that knows how to take your ideas out of your head and put them in your hands. That's why. And we’re thankful you found us.

Sincerely,

Kelby Shymlock and Keith Phillips
