Connecticut Street gets some good press.

Positive Approach Press has opened on Connecticut Street (see why). I stopped in moments ago to pick up a couple of their brand shirts, one of which was printed on the inside of the shirt making it look about ten years old off the rack.

Owners of Positive Approach, Joe Piehler and Justin Howard, have added a new, larger print press to their operation, allowing them to handle more custom jobs to their docket. “We needed this space to grow,” Joe told me. “Now our business is high efficient and we can produce higher volumes (though no one-offs). We have a couple of hundred accounts in Buffalo, including some work with Buffalo State College and University at Buffalo. The new machine allows us to be more versatile with different types of printing techniques that allow us to offer softer prints than before.”

Not only do the t-shirts look great, the outfit’s digs are spacious enough to allow the occasional skateboarder/worker to get around from the showroom floor to the print press effortlessly. Of course that is not how they get around all the time, but when inspiration strikes it’s not unheard of. The addition of this print shop to the West Side is another big win for the neighborhood and helps to improve the cross-section of offerings that contribute to creating another commercial destination in the city.
