LittleMtnSupplyCo's Shop Announcement


There’s a real back story behind Little Mountain. Nothing crazy, but it has its place and purpose. A while back, before I bought my first screen printing machine, I was scrummaging through an old photo album that my parents had stored away. Within the dust and a few moths, I came across a photo with rolling hills, a cloudless skyline and a rich forest. In the background was a little mountain. Now if you speak any Czech, you'll already know that my family name, Horacek, means "Little Mountain"--a fact that I had only recently discovered. In that moment, looking at that photo, it all just clicked. My name, the image and the logo icon just came together so naturally.

For a few short years, I did the best I could to fully master the true art and craftsmanship that is the screen printing process. By using traditional tools, such as graphite, water color paints, charcoal and my personal favorite the Sharpie, I created an organic and natural look that just felt right to me. I've found that much can be achieved with a combination of simple illustration and solid typography, and I've learned to find the beauty in little imperfections.

There’s a true gratification that you get when you are able to take a passion and turn into something special. I am Joe Horacek and I am the owner and operator of Little Mountain Print Shoppe and its Supply Company.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your visit.
