We are a veteran owned and operated manual screen printing shop in North Chicago. After I spent 12 years in the military in the Marine Corps, I got injured. I needed a way to make money. I tried starting a clothing line, but most orders and calls we got were for custom printed shirts. So we decided to switch to a custom print shop since that was in demand.
After printing tons of orders and screwing up countless T-shirt’s and getting frustrated with the emulsion coating process and burning screens, I thought it was time to quit and move on. But the Marine in me wouldn’t let me quit and walk away. I couldn’t quit in combat so why should I quit now on something that is going to be my business?
I stuck with it, pulled numerous all-nighters with no sleep researching, practicing, and eventually became one of the top printers in my area. Thank God for my drive and motivation and the support of my wife who always pushed me and believed in me. We now have 3 employees and are growing everyday...
