Welcome to Rain City West! We love stories and hearing about how our customers found their way to our shop. Here’s our short version about us and how we got started in this business.
Located in West Seattle, Rain City West Screen Printing has been a family owned and operated custom print shop since 2011. Our founders have over 20 years experience in the art of screen printing. We pride ourselves on doing quality work and making sure we get the job done right the first time. In 2015, we added an automatic press to our shop so no job will be too big or too small. We also added equipment sales and screen stretching offering better services and equipment locally.
How we got started?
A few years ago, Big Dave, owner and shop king, and his wife, Lori, decided that it was time to step out of the rat race and launch their own business. At the time, it did not occur to them to launch a full-scale screen printing shop instead they went down the path of donut making. Their neighborhood at the time offered very little in the food department so the idea seemed to make sense. Random, yes. They spent most of 2010 testing, perfecting, and forcing their kids, family and friends to eat the sweet treats. It wasn’t until after they got the perfect donut down and gained 20 pounds when they realized they had absolutely no experience running a food establishment.
Then it finally hit them, they should be doing what they have been doing for years – screen printing and making t-shirts. They have a passion for it and want to share that passion with you! And if you are lucky enough to be here when Lori is cooking up some donuts, they’ll be happy to share those with you too.
