SGIA has reintroduced the SGIA Expo T-shirt, a black shirt with bright colors, gel coating, and foil effects that will be for sale at this year’s expo. All proceeds will be donated to lowernine.org, an organization working to rebuild New Orleans’s Lower Ninth Ward that was impacted by Hurricane Katrina.

“As the SGIA printing community comes together to help residents of Texas and Florida rebound from the recent effects of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, it’s important to note that the cleanup can take months, or even years. In 2005, New Orleans suffered the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina — 100 percent of the homes in the Lower Ninth Ward were rendered uninhabitable – and the efforts are still underway to help the region rebuild,” says Ford Bowers, SGIA president, according to a release.

The expo shirts were printed by Graphic Elephants, and all materials were donated by suppliers and manufacturers: shirts from Fruit of the Loom and screen printing equipment from Newman Roller Frames from Stretch Devices, Wilflex Ink by PolyOne, Shur Loc Panels, Murakami Mesh, Kiwo/Ulano Stencils, Easiway Systems Chemistry, PMI Tape, and Amagic Foils. T-shirts will be available at the expo for $5.
