Jose Andrade first started screen-printing T-shirts in his uncle’s Williamsburg basement in the ’90s and eventually started his own silk-screening business in Downtown Brooklyn in 2003. Andrade has since gained a following in the music industry (he’s done shirt-printing for Jay-Z, Eminem and Busta Rhymes), encouraging him to move his expanding operation to an East New York storefront that’s triple the size of the original spot. You can choose to bring in your own image or have the art department work up a design for you ($25 per half hour). Then the staff can print American Apparel and Bella brand tees for both sexes in the converted garage space for $35 to $60 each, depending on how many colors are used. Once the specs are set, expect to pick up your finished product in one to three weeks.
