We have met some pretty great people through our years as a screen printing shop. Every day, it seems like we are meeting someone with a huge heart who’s doing something super creative, and helping the community in ways we hadn’t even thought of.
We wanted to give a shout out to a few of those people. Seriously, you guys, you inspire us to be better every day. Thank you.
CS Jiu Jitsu
Have you ever been interested in taking up a martial art but not knowing where to start? Or maybe you’ve been in martial arts your whole life and you want a gym with a positive environment that’s focused on a healthy balance between mind and body. Or maybe you want to learn some self defense just as a precaution. Well, at CS Jiu Jitsu, you can do all three.
Carlos, the owner, is one of the best people you’ll ever meet. He has a true heart for people and an obvious desire to do as much good as possible, everywhere and in every way.
One manifestation of that desire is a weekly free self defense class for women at the Hillsboro campus. If you have a Thursday night open, be sure to stop by!
Impact Sign Co.
We have had the pleasure to work with the swell people at Impact Sign Co. for a while now. They are our other half in a way: while we at The Printory specialize in printing and embroidering garments, Impact Sign is the absolute guru when it comes to creating masterpieces in the form of custom-made signs and decals. Just take a look at some of their work:
And if that isn’t enough, they also are highly invested in helping their customers be the heroes of their own stories. On their website, they have a Tips, Tricks, and Resources page with educational articles and companies they work with. They also have a blog where they share all sorts of helpful and interesting information about printing, business, and life in general.
All of this adds up to an above and beyond effort to help their customers succeed. But, hey, that’s just the way they do it over at Impact Sign.
These are just the tiniest handful of some of the incredible friends we’ve made in this crazy business. There are so many, we could probably start a new blog and have it be nothing but customer shout outs. But seriously, if you’ve got some time, you should check these guys out. They are bonkers cool, and they’re 100% local. They make us proud of our city.
