The FRNDS Prints Saga

FRNDS Prints is a boutique studio nestled NEAR the heart of Elmhurst, Illinois, specializing in ink and cotton. We rose from the ashes of the music industry, utilizing the global pandemic as a launchpad for our endeavor. From the business of managing merchandise for world-class music artists, we pivoted, channeling our understanding into creating a streamlined pathway from design conception to finished product. We've turned the volume up on our mission—to make the creation of custom merchandise as straightforward and accessible as a friendly handshake.

Born from humble beginnings in basements and garages, our studio is a testament to a relentless dedication to our customers and an unwavering commitment to quality merchandise. While our origins lie in the music industry, our scope now reaches far beyond that. We've welcomed bars, restaurants, and organizations into the FRNDS Prints family, assisting them in creating branding that truly resonates with their audience.

At FRNDS Prints, we pride ourselves on our small size. It allows us to preserve our commitment to providing personal, swift, and efficient service. In the spirit of clarity and simplicity, we offer clear cost breakdowns and profit forecasts, empowering our clients to make informed decisions for their ventures. However, we don't stop at screen printing—we build relationships, stimulate community creativity, and facilitate the thrilling journey from idea to tangible product.

Our work is a crossroads where imagination meets impeccable craftsmanship, resulting in a reverberation that echoes through Elmhurst and beyond. From family-run cafes to school committees and local sports teams, FRNDS Prints is committed to transforming your vision into reality. Let's create something extraordinary together, and let our collaboration resonate throughout the community.

Your Wonders, Our Words


Ah, the name. It's a nod to the community we're part of and the partnerships we create. FRNDS isn't just a title—it's our ethos. We're all about building friendships, not just transactions. You're not just a customer, you're a friend, and every print we make is a testament to that connection.

How long does it take to get our printed merchandise?

Why should we choose you over big-name print shops?

We work at the speed of creativity. While we always strive to get your products to you as quickly as possible, we also believe in taking the time to get things right. We'll give you an estimated timeline when you place your order and keep you updated every step of the way.
Think of us as your neighborhood print shop. We're small, but that's our superpower. It means we can give each project our full attention, ensuring your vision doesn't get lost in the noise of complex processes. Plus, we like to think we've got a personal touch the big guys can't match.

Can you help us with design or do we need to have that sorted before we come to you?

No design? No problem. Our services aren't just about putting ink on fabric—they're about helping you tell your story. Whether you come to us with a finished design or a rough sketch on a napkin, we're here to help you bring your vision to life.
