Union printing is a special service, and very few screen printing shops actually meet the requirements to provide it. Union printing shops provide screen printing services and belong to a union and are allowed to provide screen printed items to other unions and union members.
STL Shirt Co is proud to be a union shop. We produce screen printed goods and apparel for anything union-related and unions in the Hannibal community and throughout the country, in industries ranging from fire departments, autoworkers, and tradesmen, have relied on us as their official union printing provider for years.

Union Printing Requirements
To be allowed to do union printing, a screen printing shop must meet certain requirements. STL Shirt Co.’s employees are members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Allied Printing Union Local 6300. This allows our screen printing shop to do work for unions in all industries throughout the country.
To let union customers know that their t-shirts, hats, polos, or other screen printed apparel was produced by an actual union printing shop, a union bug is printed on all union printing orders. A union bug is a small label of the printing union logo that is responsible for the item. It is an endorsement of quality and craftsmanship, and states that the product is entirely union-made in regards to the printing process. While some other screen printers may try to advertise themselves using the word “union,” only a printing shop that belongs to a union is legally allowed to print the union bug on their products. So, look for the union bug to make sure your t-shirts and other garments are truly produced by a union printing shop.
