Local InterestBY DENISE JONES, OwnerOur certified, woman-owned business centers around promotional products, embroidery, screen printing, and fulfill- ment. Our humble beginnings were start- ed right here in Battle Creek 20+ years ago in a converted one car garage, with two single head embroidery machines, two people and a ton of ambition. Today we are located in an office/warehouse on Tower Road and employ eight awesome people. We wanted to start our own busi- ness for two main reasons. We wanted to control our own destiny and make a last- ing, positive impact on our community. We work diligently, with the partnership of our staff, to continue achieving these goals every day. There are a lot of com- panies that do what we do, but we believe that we stand out because we truly put our hearts into what we started.
