Several local printers are offering their services to local business owners to help them communicate with customers and support their staff through these challenging times.

Raise Funds for your Business with Branded Apparel from Luckyprints

Lucky Prints Logo

Local screen printing and apparel company Luckyprints is creating branded apparel for small businesses as a fundraising tool for those impacted by COVID-19. Patrons can purchase gear in support of their favorites restaurants, bars, breweries, etc. with funds going to support the out-of-work employees or assist with operating costs while revenue is down.

Orders are taken as presales, fulfilled and paid-out in 2-week cycles. To provide assistance for impacted workforces, Luckyprints will help companies put together 1-4 products and the online sales platform. Luckyprints has reduced production rates to increase the program’s impact and are contributing a portion of their proceeds to Greater Chicago Food Depository.
