From a Basement to an Official Shop – Look at How Far We’ve Come

BigPlanetApparel has been owned and operated by Christian Newcomer since 2009 – and it all started while he was in high school.

At that time, Chris took art and silk screen printing classes and began to gain some experience with screen printing custom t-shirts. During these three years, he always had in the back of his mind, “I can do this on my own”, and so the seed for BigPlanetApparel was planted. A few years later, the business was officially opened.

While Chris was a student of Visual Communications at the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center in Brownstown PA, people started to approach him to do some custom silk screen printing jobs for them.

After college, Chris found himself on an adventure in Costa Rica, walking in the Poas Volcano. As he reflected on his life and started to consider his goals for the future, his silk screen printing work was at the forefront of his mind, and he got clear that he wanted his business to be a local business with a world wide appeal.

Back in the U.S., to get his dreams off the ground, Chris began setting up his workshop – which was originally in his basement.

After years of dedicated work, BigPlanetApparel has reached a level of success that required a move into an official shop.

So, from basement to an official shop with an awesome shop sign – BigPlanetApparel is here to offer our services with QUALITY, RELIABILITY & CRAFTSMANSHIP – our core values.

Today, Chris continues to do high-quality screen printing jobs for organizations and businesses, mostly in the Lancaster PA area. His vision for the future remains rooted in the idea to stay local while maintaining a global awareness.
