idleWilde Printing Co. began when my other business, a touring band, was in need of printed t-shirts. Rather than ordering them from an overseas supplier, I purchased a kit and taught myself to print shirts. Other bands I was touring with began hiring me to print their shirts. I partnered with Rachael Guzick in March of 2018 with the goal of continuing my musical endeavors and expanding the printing business. I continue to focus on the core values of finding creative solutions while scaling both businesses. I also handle the booking for a local brewery where we have brought over 100 touring musicians from all over the US to perform in Hartford. Many of these bands have also become clients. I see my multiple ventures as ways to cross promote, and offer local and regional services to other businesses.
