“My dad has been in the business for 32 years, so I have basically been in it my whole life,” Bailey said.
In 2003, Bailey started his own clothing company, and then from there he decided he wanted to work more with the printing side of things. He has been working on his clothing line and being a business owner for the past 10 years.
Stitches Clothing Co. offers its services worldwide and ships all over the U.S. Its services include screen-printing, jumbo screen-printing and photo realistic image screen-printing.
“We do a lot of contract work, so we print for brokers, people that are trying to sell a product, schools, special events, and we work around the community,” Bailey said.
Stitches Clothing Co. has done work for Hot August Nights, Monster Energy drinks, Moms on the Run and the Reno Balloon Races, as well as many other events around the Truckee Meadows and California.
Many schools around Nevada, primarily in Sparks, have put in orders to have T-shirts made. Schools and companies around the world take up most of Stitches Clothing Co. clientele.
Bailey moved to Reno from Carson City to go to school for graphic design. He completed his schooling in three years and then decided to reside in Sparks. Bailey hand draws some of the artwork from scratch, but 90 percent of it is computer generated.
“Businesses usually email me a rough sketch of what they want and then we digitally proof it to perfect the artwork. Then we send it back so they can sign off for approval,” Bailey said.
Many professional clothing brands have gone through Stitches Clothing Co. to get their products made like LivFast, Reel Lifestyle, Alpine Assassins and many more.
Stitches Clothing Co. has been very successful, printing roughly 2,000 T-shirts a day. Ranging from $6-to-$10, how could people not want to have their T-shirts made by this ever-growing company? From last year, it has already doubled its production, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Having his own business has been a love of Bailey’s, and his business, consisting of five employees, is more like a little family than a place of work.
“I love coming here,” Bailey said. “It’s not even like a job, the most rewarding thing for me would be starting it at a young age and being successful in it. It takes a lot to leap out and go for something that you want.”
