In 1973, out of a friend’s basement in Thorold Ontario, Martin Myers founded Calhoun Creations. From his humble beginnings, custom printing t-shirts from a single screen-printing machine, Calhoun evolved over the next 42 years into licensing, sourcing and manufacturing, known today as Calhoun Inc.
In the early days, major accounts included music retailers, radio stations, and custom orders. Next, Calhoun began to manufacture clothing for colleges and universities across North America.
In 1981, the company moved to its present facility on Bunting Road in St. Catharines. This facility is approximately 40,000 sq. ft., housing a cutting, sewing, design and screen-printing department. In 1985, Calhoun began exporting to retailers and corporate customers in the United States. Calhoun also maintains a 10,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space in Buffalo, NY to support its American clients.
Calhoun has always thrived on learning and innovation, constantly improving and evolving to provide the best products and service to our clients. We’re always working on new ways to deliver an even higher quality product at an even faster turnaround. Today, Calhoun not only provides custom printed t-shirts, but has become an official licensee of many world-renowned brands such as DC Comics, Game of Thrones and the NHL.
Calhoun has been producing custom screen printed t-shirts, since its founding 1973. As an establishment, customers can depend on Calhoun to have the reliability, efficiency and quality workmanship that result from more than 40 years of experience in the clothing business. From ordering, to delivery, we make sure that you receive exactly what you want, when you want it.
Calhoun’s custom capabilities go far beyond customized t-shirts. Calhoun produces custom pants, hoodies, golf /polo shirts, jackets, sports jerseys, shorts, backpacks, infant onesies, hats and baseball caps.learn more
