Offbeat Press is a socially-conscious custom screen-printing shop and creative design office (HYPE Visual). As a small screen printing company, based out of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, we’ve developed a strong customer base across Wisconsin and across the country. We specialize in quality printing and products, we love the craft of screen printing, and we are creative leaders of design and apparel.
We take screen printing past the commercial aspect, working with each of our clients to offer quality products, creative ideas, dedicated service and reliable results. By combining our artistic roots, technical experience and attention to detail, we offer screen printing options specific to our client’s needs while pushing the boundaries of our industry.
Established in 2008, Offbeat began offering creative screen printing within a small corner of an abandoned building on the East side of Oshkosh – the building was the original tram station for the city of Oshkosh. Located near the intersection of Lake Winnebago and the Fox River, Offbeat Press is tucked away in a mostly residential neighborhood. Since starting in a 400 sq. foot loading dock space, we have incrementally grown from those meager beginnings. In early 2012 we expanded, doubling our capacity, doubling our printing equipment and adding modern amenities such as a break room and a print shop with windows. In 2015, we expanded again, moving into a new print shop within the same building.
Drew is a Wisconsin native and comes from a background in conceptual graphic design, with professional experience working at ad agencies and design firms, including 4 years working as a freelance designer before opening Offbeat Press. Drew began designing apparel graphics in college and started creating his own independent, Wisconsin clothing line, PROGRESS Label, shortly after college. As PROGRESS grew and Drew’s freelance work expanded, he was hired to design for bands, businesses, nonprofits, and other clothing companies before opening the doors to Offbeat Press. Drew is the original founder and sole investor at Offbeat Press, but our staff deserves the majority of credit for the work of Offbeat Press.
Offbeat Press has evolved over the years as we’ve grown from a tiny manual print shop to a creative design + robust print shop. We continue to specialize in creativity, craft quality, and service. HYPE Visual is the design office at Offbeat Press. With hard work and natural growth, we expanded in the spring of 2015, again moving our print shop, expanding into a larger area of the old tram station. With this expansion, we are reconnecting with our roots, doubling our print capabilities and limiting our environmental impact during growth. Read more about our expansion under Sustainability + Responsibility. We added new equipment including our first auto press and an awesome gas dryer. We now have 2 manual presses, 1 auto press and additional equipment. With 7 employees and growing, we have an awesome staff these days. Between our managers, we have over 30 years of screen printing experience in all areas of the screen print industry. Our staff is young and knows how to have fun, but we take our work seriously while putting out high-quality products. Thanks for your interest. We look forward to making some awesome work for you.
