Our Story


Honest. Professional. Creative. Dynamic.

The Start.

From Humble Beginnings

Artist Proof was established in 2016 by Evan Ackerfeld, Jared Hujing, and Ellis Hartsell as an apparel decoration business.  From a very small initial operation, we grew organically and quickly through word of mouth and developed a reputation for high quality products and authentic relationships. Through an endless pursuit of progress, the company has expanded to become Colorado’s only full-service union screen printing, embroidery, and digital printing resource; your one-stop shop for every branding need.

We strive for excellence on every project, with a team of experts ready to bring your vision to life. For us, that’s what it is all about – bring us your dream and we will turn it into a tangible product.

The Mission.

Our Promise

At Artist Proof, we have built our business through continual growth. Bring us your ideas, and we work with you one on one to execute them to their fullest potential.

We are passionate about producing the highest quality products for our customers on each and every order for a pair of simple reasons. First, we want to make items that you love. Second, our high personal standards motivate us to create products we are proud of, lighting our fire coming into work each day. By caring for our craft, we are caring for our clients and look forward to being the only shop you turn to in marketing and branding your business.
