About Great Dane Graphics

Originally based in New Orleans, Louisiana, Great Dane Graphics was founded in 1991 by T-shirt graphics artist Dane Clement. The company's original core business was designing custom screen printed T-shirt art for customers.

From Custom Art to Stock Art

In August 2005, Great Dane Graphics was turned upside down by the devastating Hurricane Katrina. Clement and his employees were forced to go their separate ways, but Great Dane Graphics was able to preserve by changing its product offering. Instead of designing custom art, the company began designing stock art that was customizable and production-ready.

This new stock art was created while employees lived in different states, including Clement, who took a position at Screen Printing Supplies, Inc. (SPSI) in Minnesota. During his time at SPSI, Clement gained extensive knowledge of the direct-to-garment printing industry. Eventually, he was able to return home to Louisiana and to Great Dane Graphics full time.

Though the Great Dane Graphics before Hurricane Katrina will never be forgotten, the company has made surmounting leaps since. Its line of beautiful, full-color designs continues to grow, giving customers - big or small - an easy and affordable way to create unique designs for clients. In addition to screen printing, stock art designs can now be found to fit various other methods of T-shirt decorating, including DTG, dye-sublimation, printing/cutting, heat printing, and embroidery.
