When Screen Printing Takes a Village

All Hands on Deck

We were printing during a hot-market event, working 24 hours for five days. Neighbors, friends, and customers brought breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Others offered to fold and box. Former employees volunteered to take a shift. A group of three teenage brothers brought coffee and doughnuts at 3 a.m. It was a wonderful experience, and it was followed a couple of days later when our team won the national championship. We printed over 70,000 T-shirts in 10 days on one machine. — Jon Wilhelmsen, Distinct Impression
