Each member of our company, from the owner to the delivery guy, takes pride in our company and our overall goal of making you, the customer, happy.

Reckless T-shirts originally opened its doors in 2006 when Michael D'Elena, the sole owner, got the bug to start working for himself while finishing up college. At the time he had very little business experience; in fact, his degree from Arizona State University was in secondary education. After graduation, Michael took a full time job teaching 8th grade social studies while simultaneously building his "side" business from the ground up. As the school year progressed, his once side business turned into a full time venture, leaving him with two full time jobs and zero time for either. He soon realized he must make a choice. Following his passion, he jumped head first into growing his business further. Teaching would have to wait. Since its incorporation in 2006, Reckless T-shirts has grown from a college student's humble idea into a successful custom apparel business with clients nationwide. In April 2013, Reckless T-shirts became a subsidiary of Canyon Apparel, a 20 year printing company, also located in Tempe.

As our years in business have grown, so have our services. Currently we offer screen printing, embroidery, as well as graphic design. More important than our services though, are our customers. We realize that our continued success begins and ends with you. We acknowledge that you have many options when it comes to who you'll use to produce your custom apparel, so our business continues to be a personal experience, not just an exchange of money and products. If and when you decide you need screen printing or embroidery work done, please consider our company to take care of your needs.
