How it works
We bring our Side Garage studio to you and print (or coach people how to print) on the spot at your event.
We love the printing process and want to share that with you. This service can be as interactive as you want it to be. If you would prefer that we just crank out prints as people put in their order — cool, we've got you covered. If you want your guests to experience the joy of printing their own product, our team is ready to coach them on their way to a great looking shirt or print.
Customized to fit your needs
Each event is unique. When planning for your event, it's important to us that we meet your specific needs. In order to do this it will take a collaborative effort between your team and ours to determine the best setup and experience to offer your attendees.
Examples of occasions we feel could use a little printing love:
- Live Music
- Sporting Events
- Family Reunions
- Bachelor/Bachelorette parties
- Birthday Parties (ages 7+)
- Corporate outings
- Program Awareness Events
- Back to School
- Grand Openings
- Holiday Parties
- Special promotions/announcements
- Just because you want to
Want a little more "hands on" experience? We offer workshops as well. Shoot us a note and we'll see if this is something we can accommodate for you and your group.
More than just a product.

Live Printing FAQ
Why Live Printing over custom printing?
When you're able to see how the product you're buying is made, it adds value. When you're the one that puts the ink down, now you've made something memorable. If you're wanting to create an experience for your audience and engage them in a way that they don't typically have the opportunity to engage in - live printing is a great option.
Not to mention we have a couple of packages where you only pay for what you sell. Say goodbye to leftover stock and excess inventory.
How much does it cost?
Since each event is unique, we don't have cookie cutter pricing. We do, however, have various packages available to help us cater to your needs based on quantity needed, style of product or print, and how products are purchased.
Can you print more than one design or color?
For our live set-up we can only print single-color designs.
Do customers pay you OR US for the products?
That's up to you. We've learned that it works best when done in one of two ways:
- Option 1: We act as your merch table and your customers pay us directly for their products.
- Option 2: You pre-pay for a certain amount of shirts and we give them to your guests for free as promotional material.
Can you print on anything besides t-SHIRTS?
Yes! We have the ability to print sweatshirts, posters, and tote bags. If an item you're interested in getting printed isn't listed here, just shoot us a line and we'll let you know if we're up for the challenge.
Can I submit my own artwork?
Absolutely. If you have pre-made artwork that you want to use, we ask that you send that over to us with your inquiry so we can make sure it is something we are capable of producing. Printable files must be at least 300 dpi in .pdf or .eps file formats.
DO you need any additional equipment or supplies?
If you have a power source - that would be rad. Otherwise, we have the ability to cover that. We also rarely say "no" to cookies or beer.
How far much of a heads up do you need for booking?
The sooner the better. For live events we book several months in advance. As a general guideline, it's unlikely we will have availability less than 2 weeks out from your desired event date.
