About

Tiny in Size, Big in Spirit and Screens!

Wider Awake began in 2008, in a small bit of space carved out of one of our parent's homes back in South Jersey (sound familiar to anyone!?). With little more than our hand built screen printing press, a few screens and squeegees and our excited brains, we set off to tackle our first projects as a DIY screen printing shop!

As we picked up some clients and got a bit busier, we packed up and moved on out to Philadelphia where we put our biggest thinking caps on and really reassessed exactly what the heck we wanted Wider Awake to represent in our new location, for both ourselves and our service to the public. In a nutshell, here's what we came up with:

Wider Awake was initially born out of the belief that we want to be doing things in our lives that make us feel more alive and more 'awake'. In the case of Wider Awake, that means being able to live lives where we can tap into our creativity in as many ways as possible, through illustration and design, or by helping other people make their own creative ideas come alive through our screen printing and design services. We want our 'work' to not feel so much like work (who doesn't!?) and that's exactly what Wider Awake does for us. Not only are we doing what we love and hopefully making others happy through this work, but we can operate through our own ideals, running a business that supports the environment and humanity in whatever tiny and huge ways possible. The name 'Wider Awake' comes from the book, 'The Secret Garden', in which the main character finds a new awakening in a 'secret garden' where she is inspired by the simplicities of life and nature, both prevalent themes in our work and our lives.

And so that leaves us here, in present day! The shop has seen a lot of wonderful growth since we first began and we are really grateful. Still rooted in our original DIY mindset, we spend our days in the shop working on our own custom screen printing projects, drawing plants, animals, and funny things, rhyming words, mixing ink, creating editions of prints, posters, cards and garments that we sell both online and at craft shows around the East Coast and beyond.

We also work with local and international artists, organizations, bands, and schools doing contracted screen printing, both printing and / or designing anything from wedding invitations, band posters, cards, and t-shirts and the list goes on! This avenue allows us to meet some great people, allowing their projects and visions to come to life through this awesome and beautiful screen printing process!

Our shop runs on 100% renewable energy and everyday we strive to use only the safest products and services for both the environment and humans alike, buying locally whenever possible.

This is our life and passion. We will do it everyday until are hands are too tired or until aliens finally take over the world. So thanks for being a part of our shop and helping us continue to do what we love! If you have ANY questions or any interest in working together, please just send us a message.

Check out our website for detailed information about our services, pricing and for more examples of some of the current projects we are working on. And of course, feel free to give us a call!

Thanks!
