Our Beginnings

Extreme Screen Prints was founded in 2007 as Grafixtek by business partners Dan Lund, an electrician, and Brett Wilson, a painter. Soon, they began production in Dan’s heated two-stall garage. In 2009, the company decided a name change was necessary to reach a larger audience, hence the new name of Extreme Screen Prints. In 2010, it became clear that Extreme was quickly outgrowing the space and resources available in Dan’s garage, so they moved to a commercial space in Wyoming, MI. After refocusing their efforts on contract printing in 2012, Dan and Brett transitioned to the current location in 2013 to have the space to accommodate multiple automatic presses. With Dan and Brett’s screen printing process, which they coined Vybrasol and were some of the first to develop and perfect hybrid printing, Extreme has found an avenue that has allowed them to become one of the best specialized screen printers in the industry. Below is a timeline detailing the history of Extreme Screen Prints.
