What’s in a name?
The word “serigraphics” was coined in the early 1900’s to distinguish between “simple silk screen” and the “art of screen printing.” The word “seri” comes from the Latin word meaning “silk” and “graphos” is Greek for “graphics.” Together they mean “exceptional quality.”
Dave Powers is our fearless leader... but once upon a time long, long ago (1982), when Alaska Serigraphics was new and green, run by a workforce of only three, Dave came a knocking at the door. He was but an immature lad, fresh out of San Diego State University with a heap of education; a triple major of political science, economics and art plus a Masters in Printmaking. Dave came to Alaska Serigraphics seeking work that would satisfy his craving to create quirky, entertaining masterpieces of art. After one year spent learning every aspect of the screen printing business, Dave bought the company. Armed with fine qualities of diligence, attention to detail and a happy, positive attitude that Dave wears with him as goes about life, he watched Alaska Serigraphics double its business every year! Today the company employs over 30 happy, well-adjusted people who pamper and please their clientele throughout Alaska and beyond!
Living in Alaska bestows a deep respect for the environment and the community in which we live. It may have something to do with our remote location or maybe because the land and weather can be harsh and unforgiving, regardless, there is an unspoken bond with the people that are our neighbors. Alaska Serigraphics contributes to numerous non-profits and community events and goes above and beyond in helping in any way we can.
Here’s just a few of the great organizations we help:
- Hope Community Resources
- Alaska Run for Women
- Kitty and K9 Connection
- Koahnic Broadcasting, KNBA
- Volunteers of America
- Habitat for Humanity
- Our School and military programs
- Alaska Special Olympics
- Bethel Council for the Arts
- American Cancer Society
- UAA Lemon Day
- Bean’s Café
- just to name a few
Our school and military program
The youth and the troops that protect us deserve as much support as we can provide. At Alaska Serigraphics we offer a program that greatly reduces the cost of printing. In essence, we charge at our highest quantity levels regardless of the amount of shirts ordered and we go a step further by reducing the costs of art and set-ups. I wish we could do it all for free but we tried that in the mid-’80s and soon found out that free is a word that means nothing if it is not earned.
Made in Alaska
We are big supporters of Made in Alaska and urge everyone to buy from an authorized Made in Alaska business. Whether it be Alaska Serigraphics or one of our competitors, we are all friends, your support is vitally important to the economic welfare or our state.
Most of the people who work at Alaska Serigraphics have been here for decades which is is a great benefit to both the business and our customers, however it does make employment opportunities scarce. If you are truly interested please take time to stop by our shop and drop off a resume, we would love to talk with you.
