Shop Visit: Madd Science Print Lab in Chicago
Meet Madd Science Print Lab, a creative print shop paradise unlike any other. Located close to downtown Chicago, Madd Science prints with water-based inks and has developed a reputation for providing unique custom artwork and extremely high-quality screen prints. Hear from Madd Science owners Joe and Tim about: How they got started in screen printing Why they still stretch screens in-house Why they're obsessed with vending machines Why they use water-based inks (and have been for years) ...and why there's a bunch of animated wooden caricatures hanging around the shop! You'll also see some truly amazing water-based screen printed t-shirts (and get a tour of their wild-but-laid-back production facility located in an old warehouse near Chicago's former meat packing district). From the skateboards that employees ride around the shop to the huge collection of art, trinkets, stickers, custom skateboards, and amazing prints that line their studio space – Madd Science is an island of creativity in a sea of sterility. The music is loud, the prints are lush, and their shop is a gleeful place for anyone that pines for a screen print shop that makes space for artists. Their private label services, handmade embroidery, and a formidable list of awesome clients add up to a business with no equal. Professional but not too serious, you have a great time from the moment you step foot into Madd Science Print Lab. They've made Madd Science their own...not what someone else told them it should be. The team at Madd Science were more than happy to open their shop to us. Special thanks to Matt Marcotte for taking the time to visit Madd Science, and a huge thanks to Joe and Tim and their team for letting us stop by for the afternoon.
