Black Duck Screen Printing and Embroidery earned another national honor as Stitches Magazine saw fit to select us as one of only four shops featured in their recent list of ‘Top Shops’ for 2015, taking the first position in the article. Hailed as ‘The Problem Solvers’, Black Duck was selected both for our ability to find solutions for the most difficult apparel decoration and fulfillment problems and our desire to serve local businesses, sports teams, and individual customers with the same care and attention to detail as our large national and multinational clients or our fun and flashy clients in the burgeoning New Mexico film industry.
Not only did Stitches Magazine select us based both on our volume of sales and production as well as our innovative practices, we were honored to be recommended by several of our customers for the spot in the Top Shops ranking. One of our long-standing customers, Chris Martin of Crane Service gave a glowing review of our work replicating his company’s detailed heavy machinery for apparel decoration, saying, “For them to accurately represent that through stitching is quite difficult, but Black Duck and their team are able to do that. They’re able to replicate our designs into screen printing, embroidery or a little bit of both. We hold them to extremely high standards.” We couldn’t have been happier to see our customer stating that we meet those high standards, because we set very high personal standards for our own work. To quote co-owner Doug Bird, “Good enough is never good enough around here.”

Whether you need promotional products, uniforms, or even printed and stitched props, we’d love to be your personal ‘Problem Solvers’.
