August Ink
Fort Collins
What started as a new hobby and way to return to her creative roots, Andrea taught herself how to screen print and dove into the logistics of running her own business. August Ink officially launched in the summer of 2014 and started selling hand screen printed tees online and at markets around Colorado. Her designs quickly stood out as simple, refined and feminine without being too girly. In a world where Colorado flags dominated the scene, Andrea pulled from her experience growing up in Colorado to create designs that celebrate the spirit of adventure and the warm nature of the people who live here. In a few short months, August Ink started shipping orders around the country, both directly to customers and other small shops and boutiques. T-shirts and apparel are still printed by hand in the company's garage studio. And each order is packed up by Andrea and shipped with care.
