SRO Prints was started in a small one room basement studio in the Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco by Dave Pauli and Brandon Swinehart. Hence the name SRO Prints (single room occupancy or standing room only). We were a flat stock printer, printing posters for bands such as Built to Spill, Aim Low Kid, We Were Promised Jet Packs and The Noise Pop Music Festival in 2010.
Brandon left San Francisco in the spring of 2010 to pursue the love of his life and SRO was put on the back burner. His thoughts of giving back to the community and starting a printing company never left his mind.
In August of 2013, Brandon and his wife Sara along with founding partner Chase Stein re-established SRO PRINTS in Cincinnati, Ohio. Brandon and Sara’s strong desire to give back to an under-served population in Cincinnati coupled with Chase’s desire to learn everything about screen printing has made SRO Prints a reality. We now offer screen printed apparel, embroidery, posters and promotional products.
In 2016, we were selected as finalists in the Bad Girl Ventures “Launch” class and in Artworks “Big Pitch” contest.
