High Peak Sportswear was founded in 1989 by Ralph Smith. Mr Smith (a teacher at the time) began producing screenprinted T-shirts in the garage of his brother-in-law, Rodney Taylor, after being unsatisfied with the options that were available. The two gentlemen partnered and a business was formed. The company experienced strong growth over the next decade and today is recognized as a national leader in the production of high quality screenprinted and embroidered garments.

As the business grew, the company moved into larger facilities; finally settling in a 50,000 square foot building on Main Street, in the heart of downtown Lynchburg. In 2000 the building underwent a complete renovation that has made it a jewel in the Lynchburg skyline. The building is now listed on the Virginia and National Register of Historical Places.

All production is done at our Lynchburg facility. We also maintain a sales staff and a retail store servicing the Lynchburg community. In addition to the Lynchburg location, the company operates sales offices & retail stores in Roanoke, Blacksburg & Charlottesville.

For the past nine years we have been recognized by Impressions Magazine; our industry's leading trade publication, as one of the Top 100 Screenprinting & Embroidery companies in the United States. We take an active role in the communities in which we operate and maintain memberships in numerous business and professional organizations. High Peak Sportswear continues to service the needs of our local communities, as well as providing screenprinting, embroidery, and promotional products to companies/organizations throughout the United States and overseas.

High Peak Sportswear is licensed with Virginia Tech, the University of Virginia, Liberty University, and James Madison University (JMU), as well as the minor league baseball teams; the Lynchburg Hillcats and Winston-Salem Dash.
