I started Good Ink Missions as a way to use my privilege and profits to support our community. Initiatives range from designing/printing shirts focused on current issues, donating youth workshops to create a dialogue about social justice, and creating/running events to raise money for local non-profit organizations.

Good Ink Missions

A portion of all my commercial screen printing profits funds these missions.

More Than a Pretty Picture

During the 2nd year of Covid I created an outdoor art space I call GalleRy as it's literally in the alley leading to the studio. It's not super fancy, but it's open year round. Two new exhibits March 2023.

LiberTee-Shirt Events

I schedule social/protest T-shirt printing events on Saturdays where all you need is a blank shirt. During 2022 we printed more than 800 shirts for free. Next date TBA.

Social Justice for Youth

I do studio tours with youth and if they have a social issue they are working on I donate a design and all the materials for them to screen print mini-poster and/or shirts.

2022 Privilege with Purpose

The following areas show how I chose to use my business and resources as a way to support others and the issues we face as a community. I am fortunate, that as a single-person studio, I have a certain amount of financial success that allows me take on all these missions. Ink Lounge was also recognized in Westword's Best of Denver 2022 issue for Community Service. Read Article
