The origin of Route 75 Imprints dates back three generations to 1966 when my Grandfather started Tri-County Metal Photo in North Collins, NY. My father joined him, and their company produced a wide range of custom products from badges, tags to awards, and photo reproductions. Tri-County Metal Photo also produced chemical milling products such as instrument panels for aerospace, circuit boards, and much more!
In 1979 my father branched out on his own to start The Glass Printer, Inc. and a division of it called Mr. Mugs and Awards. Initially only offering custom printed glassware and ceramicware. As time passed, the business are to encompass a broader spectrum of unique customizing services. You name it they did it, everything from laser engraving to screen printing.
As with most family businesses, throughout my lifetime I have worked part-time in the company by lending a helping hand where and when I could, even as a young boy. Then, in 2006, when The Glass Printer, Inc. relocated to Hamburg NY, I decided to officially join the family business and became a full-time employee.
During my time with Mr. Mugs and Awards customers frequently requested custom apparel in which we didn’t have the ability to produce and was outsourced to meet their needs. Then in 2011, with entrepreneurship in my blood, I made the decision to purchase new equipment and start my own apparel business called Strictly T’s Inc, and subsequently a division called Route 75 Imprints. Initially offered custom screen-printed garments, but has since grown to encompass a broader spectrum of products and services.
Over the years we have learned more than I could ever imagine. Still learning to this day! Along this journey we have brought in new team members with their own special talents that has lead us to brand connection. With our focus being on brand connection, we no longer produce awards or printed glassware in house. We focus primarily on connecting customers to their community through graphic communication or in Layman’s terms decorated apparel. Every piece of graphic apparel has a story to tell and should spark conversation.
