Broprints Art Department

Having a full scale art department with various artists allows us to create the exact style of art you need for all your projects.  From T’shirts, stickers, hats and banners to vehicle graphics and business cards.  Because we are in the printing field we design your graphic with the printing in mind.  Not all ART translates well to the printed medium so we do our best to use our skills and knowledge of printing to allow it to work well with each individual print.

 

BEAU BARCUS

Beau’s art background goes back before joining the Broprints Team in 2007 when he was in school studying photography.  

Since then he has polished his skills on the computer and most importantly in the hand drawing department. 

SARAH RICK

Sarah joined the Broprints team in 2014.  She graduated from UCSC in 2008 receiving her degree in Environmental Science.  Later finishing the Graphic Arts program at Cabrillo College she jumped right in to the commercial art field.

AARON CLARK

Aaron “Bro” Clark is the creator of Broprints.  

The idea spawned in 1994 in his garage when he and a friend took apart an old record player and made a 2 color press out of it.  

Over the last decade he has created many of the graphics that you see on stickers and shirts throughout the Santa Cruz area.  Not only has he excelled in his art skills but has become versed in the sign department as well.  With full knowledge of all the departments at Broprints he is the go to guy. 

Adding a new style to the art department she had since created many graphics for local companies as well as worked closely with clients to make their art and company logos work well on all the different types of prints we have to offer.  She has learned a lot in the last three years and it shows in the knowledge she brings to the table when customers have questions about their project.

After graduating from Humboldt State University with a BA in Studio Art he was determined to get his art and graphics out in the world.  What better way than t’shirts.  After joining the team at Consolidated Skateboards in 1997 and heading the screen printing department, the idea of making Broprints a real business became a reality.  

Besides working here Beau has created his own design firm under the name Ground Up Graphics and continues to supply companies with crisp, clean art for all their marketing and graphic needs.

 With all the art experience and having worked in the commercial printing industry for the previous 7 years the doors officially opened in 2000.  Now a full scale print shop he assists the team in making sure the ART, PRINTS and PRODUCTION are top notch.  To us it’s more of an art form rather than just a commercial print job.
