who we are

A women owned, women operated premier full service custom print, embroidery and promotional products shop in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Our Story

With a driven passion to provide the highest quality products and service in the Western United States, I acquired a small print shop and started AZ Hot Tees in 2001. Since then we’ve steadily grown our passionate team, acquired top-of-the-line equipment, and developed in-depth knowledge of the industry and its customers.  

My word is my bond and when we say YES to a project, it will be accurate and on-time, that’s my promise. When tight turn-around times are imperative, we will step in and complete your job even when others can’t. That’s because we have the team with the right attitude, the equipment, and the expertise to move quickly and maintain the highest level of quality. 

We hope you’ll consider doing business with us as we’re eager to serve you with all your garment embellishment and promotional item needs.

Amazing Reviews!

Michelle and her folks are fantastic. Warm friendly service is balanced with professionalism and expertise. They offer suggestions regarding materials, fonts, and colors all of which are perfectly suited to the client. The operation is fantastic. You receive your order when promised and quality control is great.

I'm really happy with the service and products from AZHotTees. I worked with Jenna who listened to the needs of my martial arts and health fitness business and came up with customized t-shirts for students, polo shirts for instructors, and even a wind breaker jacket! I highly recommend their services!!

I just called to place a very last minute order and spoke with Michelle and I can not express my thanks enough for the excellent customer service I received. I know that the 50th Anniversary shirts I ordered will be amazing and that I will never use another printing company based on what I just experienced.
