WELLSBURG — A new local business is making a name for itself by putting the names of others, as well as a variety of designs, on clothing, bags and other accessories and even vehicles.

Located at 733 Main St., Tri-State Custom Teez takes its name from the many T-shirts on which owner Ashley Moore and her staff screen-print names, logos and a variety of other images.

But the store, which is at the former site of the Wellsburg Flower Shop, also stocks racks of polo shirts, baseball tees, crewneck and hooded sweatshirts and baseball caps in assorted brands and colors.

Ashley Moore, its owner; and her staff use screen printing, embroidery and engraving to apply names and designs to assorted products as well as producing decals for business vehicles.

Moore said many of the most popular styles have been posted on the business’ Facebook page, but she has helped many customers conceptualize their own ideas.

“I have been known locally for years for my outside-the-box designs,” she said, adding, “I enjoy art of all kinds and love to help my customers bring their ideas to life.”

A native of Neville Island, Pa., who has lived in Brooke County all of her adult life, Moore said she aims to provide the wide range of choices available through a big city business with a personal level of customer service found in small town establishments.

“No job is too big or too small,” she said, adding she has served families who wanted to wear matching shirts for their Christmas photos or other special occasions.

Moore said she learned her craft from John Clancy of Stuff With Attitude while working, first as a helper and later as a manager, for his Weirton business.

“I was taught by one of the best local designers. It quickly became a passion of mine,” she said.

Moore said she and her staff often are able to fill orders quickly and have provided on-site screen printing at various fundraisers and other community events.

She added special or bulk rates are available for nonprofit groups and businesses.

Tri-State Custom Teez is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday.

Moore said through the later hours on Friday, she has been able to accommodate many sports fans who come for shirts and other memorabilia to express their support for local sports teams.

She said fans served by her business have included supporters of Oak Glen, Toronto and Edison high schools as well as Brooke.

Moore said many orders have come through the business’ Facebook page and www.companycasuals.com/tri-statecustomteez, a website that details the types of clothing and accessories available through it.

She can be reached at (304) 737-7034.
