About Thrive Screen Printing

Thrive Screen Printing (formerly American Print House) originated in Wisconsin in 1990, as MJ Grant Company. The headquarters moved to Phoenix, Ariz. in 1997. The company began by selling Grateful Dead related T-shirts and decals to specialty stores in the U.S. under the names Blue Hair Productions and Heart Girl. Business quickly grew into original novelty and licensed rock and roll T-shirt and decal properties that included Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, Grateful Dead Merchandising, Lava Lamp, and Gibson Guitar, to name a few.

Some of Thrive Screen Printing most successful licenses have included the popular and controversial basketball player Dennis Rodman; talk show host Jerry Springer; and most recently Ice Road Truckers, PetSmart and Orange County Choppers, the stars of the popular Discovery channel cable TV show American Choppers.
