In 2007, while travelling the world I found myself with an abundance of ideas and not enough time or resources to put the ideas into action. A few years passed and by 2009 the ideas kept coming so I designed a t-shirt that I wanted to print.
Having spoken to a number of people regarding print techniques and styles I realised every suitable avenue was closed to me. I needed to do it myself.
So I did. I invested in direct to garment print machines, presses and more equipment than was sensible at the time to print my design on just one t-shirt! What I really needed to do next was sell my designs and create a living out of my hobby.
iNTRINSIK was born, my clothing brand, SALTshirt followed and End of Season Hoodies fitted ideally into my life, print studio and abilities. I was on my way!
Extra Mile Printing is the over all brand that came from wanting that first t-shirt.
From one printer working in a small room in Congresbury, we moved to North Street, South Bristol with 3 printers and embroidery adding workwear and club team sports kit to the list of things we love to do everyday. From there we developed, employing our first member of staff, Rachel, in 2015. We moved most recently to Cheddar, now our home, in 2016.
In 2020 we have up to 7 members of staff during busy times and more and more equipment at every opportunity. Partnered by my wife Beccy and supported fabulously throughout the year by Harriet and Zach, along with apprentices and part time help we now offer a solution for almost everyone and are really keen to grow and grow.
This year is our 10th anniversary and we're pleased to be able to present new stock, a refurbished shop and exciting new print and embroidery capabilities. Come and see!
