Hot Rod Graffix is a family owned business based in Forest Hill, La. We’ve been up and running since 2008 specializing in silk screen printing, embroidery, and promotional items.
I opened Hot Rod Graffix back in 2008 from my garage. I had been working full time in the customer service industry for over 20 years as well as running a small plant nursery on the side. I started this business with the basics, one manual screen printing press, a few screens, and the will to get my hands dirty. Within a few years this small screen printing business was bringing in enough to allow me to start screen printing full time. We started taking in bigger and bigger orders and I decided to expand into a larger facility and get an automatic press that could print up to 300 shirts an hour. That beat the heck out of my manual printing time and saved my back and shoulders quite a bit!
Even still we have continued to grow and are now producing shirts in mass volume and have added two industrial embroidery machines, a set up for vinyl graphics, and the ability to produce promotional items and awards to the product list. It has been incredible to see how far this business has come in such a short amount of time and we can not wait to see where the future brings us.
I have to say though, my favorite part about Hot Rod Graffix is that it’s a family business. My daughter started working with me full time in the summer of 2014 and my wife and son help out anytime they can. It makes the work worth it and brings in a family atmosphere that’s hard to find in a corporate business.
We also love being in a small town. You just can’t beat small town relationships, they’re more like friendships. We strive to bring that same small town attitude to every customer we work with now that we’re serving all over Louisiana and surrounding states. Maintaining those genuine relationships helps us to create the best customer service experience we can as well as bring a new joy to the job. Serving my home town and its surrounding areas over the years has been incredibly fulfilling and I know it’s only going to get better!
Looking forward to serving you in the future,
