When we started printing Clever Belle t-shirts last year, we made the decision to use a screen printer unlike any other screen printer in the area. We are proud to partner with ColorBurst Screen Printing, a division of Little Friends, Inc. ColorBurst is a non-profit, offering job skills training and employment opportunities for adults with autism and developmental challenges; empowering them with a sense of purpose and accomplishment and providing integration into the community.
Our decision to use ColorBurst is reaffirmed every time we are greeted by people like Mike, when we deliver or pick up shirts at the Downers Grove facility. Mike has worked at ColorBurst for several years, starting when he was a student at Bridge High School, which offers a transitional work program. Mike is learning to print and operate the presses and has mastered the tag-press. His pleasant smile and great customer service are just a couple reasons we are very happy with our choice in screen printer.
April is National Autism Awareness Month. In honor, we are donating $1 to Little Friends, Inc. for every shirt sold during the month of April. According to a CDC study last year, 1 in 68 children in the U.S. are identified as having autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
