Hello and welcome to the Arrow Graphics website. First and foremost, we would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You!" to all of our loyal customers; it is you who have made us who we are today. And we are always happy to welcome new customers, and we will be happy to provide you with quality products at a fair price.
Arrow Graphics is a competitively-priced custom screenprinting business located in Maryville, Tennessee. All T-shirt orders are custom-designed for each of our customers; for this reason, we do a have a minimum order of 36 pieces. We offer a number of different T-shirts brands, including Jerzees, Fruit of the Loom, Anvil, Hanes, etc. There are a lot of different options of imprintable garments to meet your needs:
Please drop by our office at 410 Home Avenue, Maryville, Tennessee 37801 to view the actual fabric swatches of shirt colors available.
We are not set up for printing sports teams; with many other printing companies in the area specializing in team sports orders, we never opted to purchase equipment specifically for numbering ball team shirts. We are set up for quantity orders only.
We do work for many different clubs and organizations: schools, churches, and other businesses, to name a few. And since we've been in business for over 20 years, we bet you know someone who has ordered from us in the past!
We also offer our services to out-of-state customers; we have a few loyal customers that are not in Tennessee due to our competitive pricing. Shipping charges will apply to any order we ship, but even so, our out-of-state customers save money by ordering from us rather than a printer local to them, even when paying shipping! Call us for your free, no-obligation quote and see how competitive we are!
Founded in the late 1980s by George Boring and Jimmy Brackett, Arrow Graphics started out as a basement hobby that eventually became the business we are today. Mr. Brackett was a good artist, and Mr. Boring had quite a bit of screenprinting experience, so the two men got together to start a hobby business; Mr. Brackett would take care of artwork and screen preparation, while Mr. Boring did the physical screenprinting in his basement at home. Work came by way of a freelance salesman, and was mostly printing caps for car lots. Eventually, due to both men's interest in stock car racing, Arrow Graphics progressed into printing and/or hand-cutting decal lettering for race cars, and out of this came orders for T-shirts for those racers. As the years progressed, our name began to get out in Maryville, and more and more people were ordering their T-shirts through us. Eventually, in 1990, the business had to have its own physical location, so a building was rented across from the Maryville Municipal Building. In 1993, the business was incorporated.
Unfortunately, Mr. Brackett's health was deteriorating, and he eventually was no longer able to work. Due to operations on his feet to remove toes, he got out of the business, and it was left solely to George Boring. Mr. Boring eventually had to hire others to print as the business continued to expand, and we enlisted the help of an (at the time) up-and-coming freelance artist by the name of Steve McKenzie to help out with artwork. Eventually, T-shirt printing became the staple business, and we weren't left with much time to do decals or race car lettering; besides that, many local people had purchased plotter-cutters for producing decals, and there wasn't enough work for everyone. Since our decals were done by hand, others could do this much faster and for less cost than we could, so T-shirts became our primary focus.
George Boring passed away in April of 2011, and left the business to his daughter, Pamela Boring-Trentham, who began working for him and learning the trade in her early teens. We are still operating, and trying to run the business the way George did when he operated it. We still strive to give our customers a quality product at a great price.
