Dark Horse was born in Michael’s garage circa 2009.  Michael began by printing his own garments for a brand he and his wife started.  He then began doing jobs for friends and local sports teams.  As word spread about the quality of the work he was putting out, Dark Horse took on a life of it’s own and quickly outgrew his garage. 

Dark Horse Printing has deep roots on the Eastside and has rapidly gained a reputation for quality work, quick turn-around times and excellent customer service.  At Dark Horse every client gets the personal touch.   Maintaining strong local relationships is a core value at Dark Horse and it shows!

Michael Hughes was born and raised in Issaquah.  He ran track at Issaquah High and at Seattle University where he majored in Organic Chemistry.  After college he taught High School math for a few years before starting Dark Horse Printing.  He has two awesome kids who attend the Rooster Valley Farm School where his wife is also a teacher.
