Yooper Shirts

I created Yooper Shirts ® in December of 2009 online at With successful designs such as the “Yooper Icon” and “U.P. HEART”, I was able to grow the YS brand and offer more designs in a variety of colors. After a year and half online, I decided to take the business and open my first retail location in West Ishpeming. After three months, I then moved the business closer to Ishpeming where we currently share space with the Ishpeming/Negaunee Chamber of Commerce on US Highway 41 West.
In November 2011, I purchased screen printing equipment so we could have the capability of printing the entire YS brand in-house. I hired my first employee and continued to build the company brand while offering custom graphic design & screen printing services to the public. I now have one full-time employee and two part-time employees to keep UP with the workload with hopes of continued growth.
Not only do I love what I do, I am fortunate enough to create designs & clothing that yoopers, and people, all over the world enjoy. I love that I can give back to my hometown of Ishpeming and offer jobs to qualified people. I thank you for taking the time to visit our website, we look forward to hearing from you!
