About Us

Rainier Designs is a family-owned Tacoma, WA business providing custom clothing and uniforms for businesses, organizations, athletic teams and schools. We specialize in three types of clothing embellishment: embroidery, screen printing and digital printing. Embroidery is generally the least detailed application of artwork yet has the highest visual value. Digital printing yields the highest resolution by directly dyeing the garment with photo quality while maintaining a soft feel. Screen printing applies layers of ink to the top of the garment resulting in excellent color contrast. Our embroidery and printing facilities are located onsite to ensure timely and accurate communication of your order

Gordon has a bachelor's degree from the University of North Dakota and is also a commercial airline pilot.

Amy Alvord brings technical expertise to Rainier Designs with vast knowledge and experience. She specializes in finding the appropriate garments for a customer's particular needs and blending garments with artwork for complete uniform packages.
