Successful minority-owned small commercial printing company in downtown Baltimore seeks a full-time Apparel Production Associate/Screen Printer to join our Operations team. Known for over 40 years as the premier printer in Baltimore City, we at Curry Printing pride ourselves on our top-notch employees, investing time, energy and resources to create a fun, productive and satisfying workplace.

The Apparel Production Associate/Screen Printer will play a crucial role in the production of custom-printed apparel, promotional items, and other materials. You will be responsible for operating screen-printing equipment, preparing screens, mixing inks, and ensuring the quality of the final product. You will also operate Direct To Film (DTF) equipment and advise the Sales and Customer Service team on the best printing method for the individual customer’s desired product. We are looking for a hardworking, reliable candidate who is passionate about apparel printing, has an eye for detail, and is dedicated to producing high-quality results.

Here's what you will be responsible for:

  • Set up and operate screen-printing equipment and direct-to-film equipment to produce apparel and promotional orders
  • Mix and adjust inks to match color specifications
  • Perform quality control checks to ensure accurate registration, ink consistency, and print quality
  • Maintain a clean and organized work area
  • Work with production team to meet production goals and deadlines, package orders for shipping, and assist with machine operation and bindery/finishing as needed
  • Troubleshoot and resolve equipment issues and quality issues
  • Cross-train other members of the production team and participate in cross-training as assigned
  • Participate in Innovation Team to research and recommend new equipment and services

Key Requirements:

  • Prior experience in screen printing, especially in a commercial print shop environment
  • Prior experience in Direct to Film printing is a plus
  • Proficiency in screen printing techniques, including screen preparation, registration, and ink mixing
  • Knowledge of ink types and their applications
  • Ability to work with precision and attention to detail, predicting issues and solving problems to avoid reprints
  • Able to stay calm and work quickly under deadline pressure in a tight-turn-time environment with competing priorities. We need to be able to rely on each other and have no time for drama or slackers.
  • Strong communication skills – able to interpret detailed work orders, proofread for errors, communicate with customer service staff and give updates to management on order statuses
  • Able to take responsibility for your own mistakes and learn from them, as well as challenge others to improve without casting blame
  • This job requires being on your feet for most of the day. You must be able to lift up to 50 pounds.

Benefits/What we offer:

  • Excellent work-life balance, predictable hours
  • Generous comprehensive benefits including medical, dental, vision, disability, and life insurance
  • 401(k) retirement plan and profit sharing
  • Professional development and education benefits

  • Casual dress code
  • Paid time off
  • Paid holidays
  • Paid parking or reimbursement of monthly bus pass
  • Pay range: $21-$23 per hour depending upon prior experience.

Candidates must be able to work Monday-Friday, 8:30am – 5pm. This is NOT a remote position; we need someone to work these hours in our office in downtown Baltimore every day.
