EXPERIENCED AND IN-HOUSE
We are proud that we decorate apparel, including hats and accessories, all in our studio in downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan. We screen-print, embroider, cut and press, sublimate and make and apply patches and tackle twill as needed. We can help with artwork and digitize for embroidery too. If you can give us a vector file, an AI or EPS file, we can then easily work the project from there. Plus we have an outstanding lineup of suppliers who provide us with a wide range of apparel and other items to work with. AND, we love to interact with you, either in the studio or by text or email. So if you have a project in mind, give us a call, or stop by, and we can get started. Note that we are licensed with the University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University for any internal project.

it a virtual rainbow at Heikk's, like a colorful Santa's workshop.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I'm a University of Michigan graduate and I studied fashion at Eastern Michigan University. I initially worked in robotics at IBM and for Sankyo Seiki, a Japanese company. Robotics was then my entre into setting up Heikk's through my familiarity with the idea of automated embroidery machines, like little robots. I just got the "maker's bug"! And from there, I expanded my knowledge and tools, and experience every year making Heikk's a true studio for decorated apparel.
