Jeff Meilander has been involved in the apparel decoration industry for over 20 years. With modest roots starting in a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, basement in the early 2000s, Jeff and his team have grown Redwall into one of the largest and most capable apparel decoration companies in the Midwest.
From 2007-2014, Redwall grew from a 1,200 sq.-ft. storefront to a 7,500 sq.-ft. flex-space, to a 25k sq.-ft. warehouse, and in 2015 moved to its current 140k sq.-ft. home. Redwall offers screen printing, embroidery, DTG, and print-on-demand fulfillment out of its two buildings located in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, just south of Milwaukee.
While Redwall (redwallprints.com) remains Jeff’s primary focus, his entrepreneurial spirit has led him to take on additional ventures outside of the apparel decoration industry, including real estate, salt product importing and distribution (miraclesaltcollective.com), canned beverage digital decoration (craftbevwarehouse.com), and even start-up investment into biomedical manufacturing (biostemtechnologies.com). Jeff is eager and excited to share his insight and knowledge to help out fellow printers and business owners tackle the unique challenges that they face. He has always lived in Wisconsin and has the personal support of his wife, Manda, and his 3- and 6-year-old children, Aria and Roman. His touring days may be over, but he still manages to rock out with kids from time to time.
