We Are Empire Specialty Printing

HI! We're Dan and Stacey Chilbert, owner/operators of Empire Specialty Printing, a screen printing and promotional products business serving the schools, teams and event-based groups of Central New York.

Empire Specialty Printing began as a dream to own a business that would serve the community and provide a sustainable income for our growing family. With four kids and Dan teaching in a local elementary school, we already have strong community connections. So, it made sense that we would start a business that creates and offers products to support the schools, teams, churches, and charity groups we're already a part of.

Dan runs the operations at ESP, printing and producing at least 80% of everything you can imagine in our shop with state-of-the-art, commercial production equipment. Stacey is the front end of Empire Specialty Printing, the smiling face and voice who greets you and will take good care of your order from start to finish. 

We take pride in being a one-stop specialty printing source for teams, booster clubs, non-profit groups and anyone looking for a way to promote their groups with custom printed products.  We produce what we sell. Which means you get to deal directly with the source... with NO middlemen!

Speciality Printing truly specializes in quick turn-a-rounds, high quality and great service! As owners we make ourselves easily available to all our customers. We want that kind of relationship... where our customers become our friends!

No matter what your imprint, apparel and promotional product needs we have you covered!




Our production capabilities are quite impressive. Whether your order is large or small, we can handle it. One color, two colors, three colors, four colors or more. Pens, key chains, golf balls, mugs and more.
