In April of 2004, Ryan Barkan started Creative Ventures, Inc.. The company started as a local multimedia firm, but after 2 years turned their focus directly to garment printing. Ryan opened the OneHourTees retail location in 2008. His expertise in graphic design gave him the ability to create t-shirt designs so quickly that providing a printing service which did the same seemed logical. OneHourTees is still growing as a company which currently has 19 employees.
