Isla Vista Screen Printing, in addition to providing screen printing, does embroidery and graphic design. They primarily focus on t-shirts, but will also do banners or other promotional items (such as pencils, sunglasses, and frisbees).

It was started by a UCSB student"For Gerstenberger, freshman year at UCSB was a time to get to know the market and to network within the dorms. When searching for housing in Isla Vista as a sophomore, Gerstenberger managed to convince his friends they needed a house with a garage, pointing out it would be better for beer pong and parties, when in reality he was planning to take over the garage with his four color, six station press. Gerstenberger taught himself how to screen print, but the young entrepreneur needed some outside guidance. One faithful Friday night, when Gerstenberger had a shirt order, he ran into an issue he could not fix. He called around for help, and got in contact with Cardoso."
