My name is Shawn Slaughter. I own a screen printing and apparel decorating business in Round Rock, Texas—ArtyRuckus LLC. We offer screen printing in Austin, TX and surrounding cities. We also offer embroidery and graphic design services.
My background is software development. I spent 20 years writing code. Corporate life started to weigh on me and I wanted a way out. My wife and I both have art degrees, so I figured I would journey down that path.
I spent about a year trying to figure out which direction to go while still in my current profession. When I decided to look at screen printing it was more of a last resort, but I found that I enjoyed it. I immediately started to research how I could make money. With a family, that's the most important thing--making money.
To make a long story short, I started a business out of our garage printing for friends and family. A year later we have our own shop and a pretty big client list.
