Our History...

Quality goes so far beyond what we achieve through screen printing, we make it our mission to offer unmatched customer service, a one of a kind art department and be innovators of fashion forward thinking.

As the company evolves and expands we want our image to follow suit. We made it our number one goal to master the art of screen printing before adding any additional services. As the years passed we built an impressive clientele and made it our mission to get our clients into an imprinted sportswear line designed to build revenue. We have added embroidery and promotional items to our list of services to round out our product line.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and for making our job challenging and fun at the same time. We look forward to working with you in the future and being able to bring your company's image to the next level.

Meet the team...


Ted Chapin - Owner

Hey, I'm Ted Chapin. In 1988 I started this company with a $386.00 dollar deposit from Rick at Port Harbour Marina. My business premiss was to offer artwork no one else could touch, produce hand cut separations and offer the best garments available. Things have come a long way and things have changed; but, what hasn't changed is offering our customers the best. I still get stoked seeing new designs printed and knowing what preparation went into bringing them to this high standard. Our crew knows what is expected and they know how to get the job done. We now offer custom screen printing, embroidery, promotional items, multi-media with an emphasis on web development. Things are really happening with GaGear and we are really motivated and moving into challenging territory.

Jessica Chapin - Custom Apparel

Over ten years ago I accepted an invitation from my dad to come work for what was then Grafic Artvertising. In those ten years I have worked in almost all departments of the business and feel like I have earned at least one college education! I am so lucky to find myself in love with my work! Every day I walk into a creative environment and get to work with people that I consider family and clients who are fun and challenge me! I am at my best and thrive when I can help a client regardless of their circumstance, budget and time frame. Each client presents their own unique situation that allows me to continue to learn and expand my skill-set. I am fiercely organized and some might say I am the go to girl for a lot of different things! I look forward to new projects, new challenges and all of the exciting things that G.A. Gear is working on in 2015!

Lynne Lowell - Web Department

My passion for designing websites began in 2002, and I have spent everyday since striving to improve my skills and continuing to educate myself. My formal education with web design began in 2007 at PATHS in Portland, Maine, from there I went to The New England School of Communications and began my four year journey in Web Media. While attending NESCom I was exposed to a multitude of skills, tools, and classes that have allowed me to build a strong foundation in Web Design and Web Media. Having a lead web developer with a multitude of skills is an important part of getting ahead in the web world! I love a challenge and I see opportunities to learn. I am excited to be a part of the team at G.A. Gear and look forward to having the opportunity to work with our current clients and new ones to come!
