Howdy, my name is Chris! Born and raised in Bethlehem PA, I've spent my entire life building relationships with and learning lessons from the local community. This background in blatant localism has taught me the importance of supporting the surrounding economies. I source all possible materials from companies within a 2 or 3 hour drive of my home base.
I strongly believe that business isn't always about making the most money at any expense. Plastisol inks have been the industry standard for many years because of their unparalleled quality and durability. LVAC is one of the first printshops in the area to also offer more environmentally friendly phthalate-free plastisol inks. In addition to this, I also exclusively use cleaning cloths made from post-consumer material and organic citrus-based solvent to clean and reclaim all screens. Furthermore, in an effort to reduce my carbon footprint, nearly all of my supplies are produced and distributed by companies within just a few hours.
Screen printing is a craft that I am very passionate about; a passion that has driven me to work tirelessly since 2001 to hone my craft; a passion that keeps me intent on learning everything there is to know about my craft. I am lucky enough to make a living doing something I love. The joy I get from working in this industry is shown in the goods I produce and, I hope, will pass on to each and every customer that I work with.
