About Us

Welcome to Armor Ink!

We are a family-owned printing and apparel business in our small rural hometown of Ellinwood, Kansas.  Our facility operates in a historic building in our downtown area, that has been many things over its life including, a 1800s grocery store, multiple bars both upstairs and downstairs, pool hall, bowling alley, movie theater, and a general hangout for our town.  We also have a section of the historic underground tunnels that the original settlers built in the 1800s.  With such a rich history we take great pride in being a major part of our local community and delivering exceptional products for all our customers.

Armor Ink was founded because we were frustrated by the lack of quality print-on-demand providers available. We tried many of the main POD services, but they all sent shirts that were made of low-quality materials with designs that were cracking, poor color accuracy, stiff, and in general just uncomfortable. As a result, we created Armor Ink to deliver the exceptional quality that our customers deserve.

To ensure the highest quality products, we use only the best industrial-grade printers, shakers, ovens, heat presses, inks, and powders to create our DTF transfers.  We also have taken the time to be properly trained in the use and operation of these machines and the software to produce consistent results that our customers can count on.  We know that investing in our equipment and training is a necessary ingredient to running a top-quality company and it will set us apart from our competitors by providing prints and apparel that our customers will love.



In addition to our DTF printing services, we also offer custom apparel orders to our clients. Whether you're looking for trendy designs or custom-made shirts that represent your brand, message, or business, we can fulfill all apparel orders if you contact us at We work closely with our clients to ensure that their vision is brought to life in the final product so they can get exactly what they desire.

Our slogan, "Defend Your Style," is not just a catchy phrase, but a reminder that we are here to help you bring your creative visions to life. We're committed to serving our customers and working tirelessly to ensure that you receive only the best prints and apparel.

We want to thank you for choosing Armor Ink and for being a part of our journey. We're excited to continue growing with you and helping you defend your unique style with our top-quality products.
