YORK-Since 2017, Parkway Print Shop has been the go-to business for custom printed t-shirts and other products. In July, the business relocated to Second Street in the new Edge District.

Jared Chubb, owner and operator of Parkway Printshop, has been around screen printing all his life. His father first began screen printing in the basement of Chubb’s grandparents’ house and showed him the ropes. After seeing a void in the Williamsburg area market for high-quality screen printing, he decided to open his own business.

Parkway Printshop first opened in Lightfoot Crossing Shopping Center four years ago. Parkway Printshop specializes in the printing of retail apparel including shirts and hats for local businesses and organizations. The printshop also offers embroidery services and other services.

“We work with larger and small businesses and organizations, and we have orders daily ranging from 12 to 2,000 shirts,” Chubb said.  

The new location on Second Street provides more space to meet customer needs as well as the needs of employees.

“In our old space, we were running out of room and needed the square footage in order to fulfill current orders and prepare for growth,” Chubb said. “Screen printing creates a lot of heat, and our production team was working in a shop that would reach 92 degrees on a hot summer day, and now they are chilling in 75 degrees.”

In a few months, Parkway Printshop hopes to expand again.

“We will be launching a physical retail shop where locals and tourists can purchase Williamsburg branded merchandise,” Chubb said. “Williamsburg has a lot of Colonial focused merchandise, and we are looking to expand into a more modern edge into Williamsburg branded gear.”

Chubb is enjoying his new spot in The Edge District.

“We love being a part of the Edge District, and also being a part of fueling the growth in sense of community within a certain part of our city,” he said. “We are hoping to become a part of a staple business and attract other businesses that we can partner with in the future.” 

Like many local businesses, Parkway Printshop is also looking to hire more employees as the business continues to grow. To learn more about Parkway Printshop and any job opportunities, click here.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
