Steve and Bonnie Melgoza celebrating 20 years in business

Goza Gear’s History

Founded in 1995, Goza Gear Ink, (pronounced go-zah), began in the early days as a home based business first in the back bedroom and then moving out to the garage shortly after. The next 13 years were dedicated to developing and growing the business from a part-time to full-time operation. In 2008, Goza Gear Ink moved and expanded into a 2600 square foot commercial facility in the East Bay city of Livermore. In 2009, the company automated the screen printing operation to increase capacity. 

We, Steve and Bonnie Melgoza, are committed to building and operating the company with core values of honesty, transparency and authentic caring for the planet and most importantly our customers.

We embrace and support the growing small local business movement in our community.

We are extremely conscious and mindful of our products and processes.
