About The Bee's Knees

The Bee’s Knees Print Studio is a locally owned and operated print studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

We currently specialize in Plastisol ink prints on cotton garments, but are available for all kinds of different techniques and substrates. 

We are an entirely manual shop, so each item that we produce was pulled by hand on a six station manual rotary screen printing press. All graphic design, artwork preparation, mock-ups, and art files are produced in-house to ensure single-point customer service and reduced costs. 

The Bee’s Knees is currently based in a small residential art studio, but we’re working toward expanding into a brick-and-mortar shop environment as quickly as possible. We believe in supporting local artists and businesses and hope you do too!


Hey, I’m Brendan! 

As the owner of the Bee’s Knees, I’m always working on an awesome print project for a rad artist and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

I am an entirely self-taught screen printer, business owner, and entrepreneur, and I continue to grow and learn every day. 

I spent the first eight years of my working life in a fast-paced corporate sales environment. After eventually becoming the Branch Manager of a large corporate office, I began to feel more and more like I needed to go out on my own and find my own way.
Two years later, The Bee’s Knees was born! 

Owning and operating a small local business is challenging and rewarding, and I can’t see where my little shop grows and expands as the years tick on. I believe in learning from the best and always being open to new ideas, so if you’re a small business owner and would like to share some wisdom, or you’re just starting out and have some questions, please feel free to contact me any time.
