Twine Graphics gives back to community
From becoming college friends at Bowling Green State University to running a business together, Twine Graphics co-owners John Bond and Brandon Hagan said they merged their backgrounds in graphic design and screen printing to create a sense of community in the heart of downtown Franklin.

Twine Graphics, which opened seven years ago, occupies a retail storefront in Franklin’s Public Square where it offers a selection of screen-printed shirts as well as branding and design for printed products, such as posters and stickers. The shop has designed products for a number of businesses and events in Franklin, such as Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant or the recently held BreakFEST music festival.

“We’re local. We’re lucky enough to be Franklin’s ‘it printer’ for that kind of stuff,” Bond said.

Designs are printed at the business’s production office, which recently moved to 1113 Harpeth Industrial Court. Bond said Twine’s processes and presses allow them to print hundreds of shirts per hour in a variety of colors and designs.

“We can print unbelievably complex designs, … multicolored, multilayered designs that give you photographic-style images on shirts,” Bond said. “There’s more depth to it; there’s more color range. It’s really cool.”

As a business owner in one of the city’s oldest buildings, Bond said he also serves on the board of the Downtown Franklin Association, a nonprofit that works to preserve the history of downtown Franklin while revitalizing its business community.

“We really try to lend our expertise or our design creativeness to whatever project is going on, and being involved in the Downtown Franklin Association’s been great, [as well as] The Heritage Foundation, because we’ve been lucky enough to work on some really fun projects,” Bond said. “We do these things because we want to be involved.”
