Carpenter Screen Printing was founded by Bob and Elaine Carpenter in 1968 in a single car garage on Dearborn Street adjacent to their home in Caldwell, Idaho. In those days the business consisted mainly of printing garments for sporting goods stores in the Boise Valley and the Northwest region. The Identity market as known today did not exist before 1970.
In 1986 Carpenter Screen Printing was honored to be named Idaho Small Business of the Year by the Small Business Administration, and Caldwell's first ever Business of the Year in 2004.
In 1996 Jacob, the youngest of Bob and Elaine's sons, re-joined the company and today Carpenter Screen Printing is housed in a 36,000 square foot facility and supplies top quality screen printed and embroidered items to customers all across the United States and from time to time, beyond. Carpenter Screen Printing is the oldest and largest screen printed and embroidered wearbles business in Idaho and continues to be family owned and operated.
