Our History

1990: Our Start

Special Tees has been providing custom apparel printing services since 1990. It was founded by owner Victor Van Vliet, who attended SUNY Geneseo and has been a Geneseo resident for over 25 years. We started out on University Drive, mostly catering to the organizations on campus. For the first ten years, our soul focus was custom embroidery.

2012: The Addition

In 2002, Victor’s brother, Yannick, became a permanent part of the team. Yannick brought an affinity for graphic design and added an in-house screenprinting operation to Special Tees. With the addition of screenprinting services, we needed to move into a bigger location.

Our Move to Main St.

Ten years ago, we moved into our current (much larger) location on Main St. Since being on Main Street, we have continued to grow by offering even more custom products such as promotional items, banners and stadium wraps.

The Future

As a local business, we strive to continue providing quality service and products to the Geneseo area and beyond. From large corporate projects to inspirational charity events and everything in between, our team at Special Tees can’t wait to help you create products you love.

Our passion for what we do transfers into the customers we serve.
