Icyy Ink Screen Printing: From fiber arts to community fundraisers
Warren County | Allegheny National Forest and Surrounds of the PA Wilds
By LaKeshia Knarr
Icyy Ink Screen Printing offers high-quality screen printing and creative designs using eco-friendly materials.
“We offer water-based inks for pretty much any material, including paper!” explains owner Michelle Munksgard. The water-based inks use eco-friendly cleaners, some that only require water, she said.
The company also utilizes recycled fabrics for printed apparel.
In addition to screen printing, Icyy Ink provides embroidery, graphic design and photography, and web design services.
Icyy Ink operations take place out of a building Munksgard recently purchased. In the main floor of the building are the machines for screen-printing and embroidery, as well as the computer workstations. A former restaurant/motel facility, Munksgard is transforming the workspace in the midst of using it.
Munksgard is also passionate about working with organizations and others in her community, promoting fundraisers and mentoring other artisans, including John Pearson, another artisan featured in the Creative Makers of the Pennsylvania Wilds Exhibit.
Her desire to help other organizations led her to offering a new service within Icyy Ink. She helps customers set up fundraisers or online stores to support their own causes. Customers can also design their own apparel using he Icyy Ink online designer.
