Over the last six years Claire worked to grow the Fox Island Printworks brand. Everything from the graphic design, product design, photography and website design, to the daily business operations and sales and marketing.
In the fall of 2017 Claire and her partners sold Fox Island Printworks to Dave and Kylie Watts of Watts in Maine.
Fox Island Printworks was a screen printing and letterpress studio located 12 miles off the coast of Maine, on North Haven Island.
Claire, Fox Island Printworks, co-founder and born and raised Mainer, had the idea to print t-shirts as a side business, during the summer tourist season. In May of 2011 with a well-used 4-color press she began printing.
Fox Island Printworks created high quality and well-designed products that were inspired by the environment and community in which the business has thrived. The goal of the business was to continue to build the economy of a small island in Maine.
