Hello and welcome to Paintbrush Print Company. Modern hand printed souvenirs with just the right amount of class & kitsch.                                                 

I'm an urban planner with a wide range of hobbies and interests including saving old buildings, falling in love with small towns, road trips, country music, neon signs, roadside motels, dive bars, postcards, public art, cowgirl style and cowboys (ha!). All I do is think about places and I love to experience something for the first time. I think it is special to collect things that remind you of those experiences, so that's why I started screen printing and making souvenirs. 

I'm originally from a tourist town in northern Wyoming, but I have lived in Texas for eleven years. I taught myself to screen print after a trip to a vintage store in Tucson, AZ, where I discovered Harwood Steiger fabrics. Steiger is known for his tone on tone printing inspired by the desert southwest. I was really taken with the simplicity of his designs and how he captured the essence of a place in pieces that tourists could take with them.

I love the retro designs of postcards, glassware, travel brochures and maps. I collect all types of vintage travel items. I like to print things inspired by that tradition, but that also feel modern and high quality. Most of all I like to make people smile. Everything in my shop is designed and hand printed by me in Amarillo, Texas. Depending on the time of year, I will do custom work, wholesale and special orders. Please feel free to reach out!

Happy Trails,
Emily
