Whenever possible, at BmoreArt we want to work with Baltimore-based small creative businesses. For new projects this year, we needed to source a high-volume screen printer for BmoreArt branded goods, and we wanted to support a local business who represented our values and devotion to high-quality craftsmanship. As a graphic designer, it was important for me to find someone recommended by detail-oriented customers. After asking a couple of colleagues in the design field about screen printers in the Baltimore area, several suggested the same name: Navid Sarfaraz. We selected his Syndicate Screen Print Co after meeting Navid and his team and learning their incredible story.
In this interview, Navid shares his journey from being homeless to discovering screen printing and turning it into a career. He talks about his passion for the art form and the satisfaction of bringing people’s ideas to life. Navid also discusses the challenges of growing their business while maintaining high-quality standards and building a positive work environment for their team. He shares details about collaborating with BmoreArt to create our t-shirts and tote bags. He also highlights the importance of making time for personal creative projects, such as his garment line available for sale online.
