In 2017, an idea came about that would turn into something big. It started with Scott always trying to match his sock with the holiday, time of the year, or special event, and has grown into a fully functioning business that provides incredible unique products to people all over the United States!
That was only the beginning. We now offer four different brands (and growing) under the name Catholic Concepts! These brands include Sock Religious, Live Liturgically, States of Faith, and lastly 4 Marks Printing, which we will be discussing further in this article.
As our flagship brand, Sock Religious, grew and we began manufacturing and making our own products, it quickly became our passion to make beautiful, high-quality, joyful products that start conversations. Over the years, we’ve acquired the machinery, expertise, and people to produce and deliver products we love to our customers.
Catholic Concepts is a company founded by people and full of employees with backgrounds in ministry, and we understand the value of having high quality apparel for events, retreats, mission trips, camps, sports teams, or ministries. There are so many good things happening in the Church and we are passionate about using our resources to partner with organizations and people who are on a mission to bring faith to the world! Our goal is to let that shine through 4 Marks Printing.
The name “4 Marks Printing” was inspired by the Catholic Church and the screen printing industry! “4 Marks” is a reference to the four marks of the Catholic Church: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. If you look closely at our logo you can see symbols that represent that: “OHCA” that also resemble registration marks.
Registration marks are vital when printing because it ensures the images line up perfectly for a beautiful final product. Also, a common rule in the screen printing industry is to limit images to 4 colors. Another motivation behind the name “4 Marks.” However, with our newest technology, Direct to Film Printing, we have the capability to print full color images!
With 4 Marks, the possibilities are endless, but don’t just take our word for it! Check out some of the amazing work that 4marks has helped bring to life and hear what some of our customers have to say!
4 Marks has done print jobs as small as a single shirt to a full spirit store. We’ve seen great success with this through St. Mark Catholic School! “Our spirit wear is such a hit! Everything looks so great and you can really tell that 4Marks puts a lot of care into making sure we can have everything we want!” -Elizabeth T
“There is no job too big or small 4 Marks can’t do! Whether it’s an order of 8 or 48 shirts they have what you need for your ministry. We really love our Indy Catholic shirts!” -Emily M
We filled a VERY big order for the Catholic Youth Camp in Minnesota! They were so excited that they did an “unboxing” video.
“I was really pleased with the process and attention to detail that the staff at 4 Marks offered to make sure the shirt I wanted was everything I dreamed It would be. I’m looking forward to working with them in the future!” -Lauren O
Custom stickers are always a big hit! We have so many options, and if you don’t feel up to creating the design, our amazing design team will do the work for you! “They look soooo good! I am so pumped and everyone loves them. You’re the best.. Doing the Lord’s work! :)” -Mary Kate B.
We have partnered with many organizations to create their own unique custom socks! Some of these organizations include Catholic Sprouts, the Kolbe Academy, NFCYM, Real Life Catholic, Y Disciple, and so many more.
