Mile High Tee Shop – Denver Co

We love to test out some new graphic tee’s and when that new gear helps support a local Denver business then we’re all about it. Next time you’re in Denver check out Mile High Tee Shop. Owner, Joe Rogers, sent a few of his new designs over to the GG headquarters, and we liked what we saw. High quality t-shirt’s, cool designs, and professional printing. After the interns wore em’ around Denver for a couple days, we got a chance to talk to Joe about how he got started in the t-shirt game.

It all got started when Joe built a wooden shirt press for an independent study project for school. Once he got started learning the process and made his first few designs, he knew this was the industry he wanted to be involved in. After graduating, he landed a job at Mar Tek Industries, a local printing shop in Englewood. This is where he said he learned the insider tips and tricks to really help make him successful. After working there for a year and mastering the process he thought it was time to make the jump to self-employment. So from a school project, and hours on hours over the press, the idea of Mile High Tee Shop was born. He was lucky enough to find a space for rent at a shop his friends lease in the Santa Fe Art District, located in The General Store, at 932 Inca, Denver. Joe tells us being in the art district at a shop with like minded people is the best place he could think of for a new start up to take off.

Joe tells us as great as it is owning his own business now, the best part still is just having fun with it and learning more about the whole process on a daily basis. As of right now it’s kind of a one man show, but you would never guess that based on the number of shirts he turns out in a week. He did make a point to say that it wouldn’t have been as seamless without help from friends like the SKBC crew, CoCo Bikes, and all his friends down for some late night printing in exchange for PBR. Although he’s only been in business for a couple months, you can already see the designs he’s made being worn by clients like Drift King Trikes, CoCo Bikes, 1186 Salsa, Denver Chain Chase, and the Hot Licks. Joe says things have been going really well, and he’s really stoked about the future of Mile High Tee Shop.
