History of Inked Wear
Inked Wear is owned and operated by husband and wife team Greg and Lori Chapman. Always driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, Greg worked his way through college by repairing a thrifted sewing machine, teaching himself the art of upholstery, and starting his own business. After graduating with a degree in engineering he went from chairs and motorcycle seats to working for a semi conductor manufacturer.
There he was awarded over 25 patents and a part of his responsibilities was to stencil print adhesive onto silicon wafers. While working as an engineer he also airbrushed t-shirts for his kids’ band. He combined the printing aspect of his engineering job and his creative passion for t-shirts and bought Inked Wear in 2007. Since then he and Lori have spent years focusing on not only giving their customers a quality product, but a quality experience. For over 10 years they have cultivated trust and made sure their customers got their orders ON TIME! With a friendly and dedicated sales team, a production staff with decades of experience, and a creative and capable art department, Inked Wear has everything you need to get the job done right!
