Help a growing small business.

I opened a small patch and t-shirt printing business to honor the memory of LCPL Curtis A. Christensen Jr.  He was my best friend and was to have been my best man at my wedding.  He joined the U.S. Marine Corps to try to straighten his life out, when instead it was cut short in Iraq.  One of his life's goals had been to open his own business with me.  When his death made that an impossibility, rather then let his dream die, I started this business with my wife and mother in his honor and with his mothers blessing.

However, my funds at this point in time are very limited, which sadly and unfortunately creates longer wait times for my customers. For the most part people do not mind the wait because of our quality but I do not like making my loyal customers wait.  We do our best to try and give the best product at the absolute best price.

We currently make T-shirts, patches, and decals for Freemasons, more specifically members of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders' Association, but we would like to branch out into other areas as well.  We have also done shirts for charity runs, family trips and reunions.

Right now this is our main source of income as I am unemployed and my wife works, but her earnings are not enough to cover both our bills and our business expenses.  We are trying to get this business to the point to where we can concentrate on it full-time. 

We are hoping to get another heat press to start, which will help increase our productivity and speed.  We also need more supplies to make our products.

Have you thought about motorcycle rallys? Most bikers are current or prior military. There is an annual ride onto the Fort Dix/McGuire Air Force Base with a big vendor setup at the end.
