While performing as a touring musician, our founder Connor Millican began screen printing as a way to create custom t-shirts for his band. He built the business from the ground up and became passionate about each stage of the process from production to customer service and sales.

From what began as a creative passion in a basement shop in 2013, the business developed over the years and idleWilde Printing Company has since become known as a reliable source for delivering quality custom apparel and exceptional customer service.
