GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - If you are looking for some fun gift ideas this holiday season, as well as an opportunity to give back, look no further than Printed & Proper.
Owner Audrey Depenbrok joined the WZZM 13 News at Noon to talk about her hand-printer t-shirt company stationed in Grand Rapids.
Every shirt sold in her shop helps out the community.
From the "About Us" section of printedandproper.com:
Hi! I'm Audrey!
I am a wife. I am a mom of two kiddos, and one fluffy golden retriever. I am a child of the One True King. I am a health nut...but also a lover of cake. So, I'm always searching for balance. You can find me navigating my life, one Pinterest project at a time.
I've spent many years of my life working for other people, to make their dreams come true. And recently, I had a revelation that I needed to dive in (head first!) and work toward making my own dreams happen. With the support and encouragement of many friends, I launched Printed & Proper.
So what are these dreams that I'm working to achieve? I want to GIVE BACK. In the last few years, I've felt called to give more...to do more. And, as my children are growing up, I want to be that example for them. This shop is allowing me to give of my financial resources...as well as my time, to serve others.
Each and every shirt sold in our shop is helping a cause that's near and dear to my family's heart. And then, each month - we are launching a new design that will benefit a specific cause.
So - along side my two kiddos and fluffy golden retriever - I spend my days dreaming up designs for shirts that I would wear myself, and hand pressing them (you know...when I'm not driving kids to and from school, t-ball, etc!). I love selecting the most high quality tees I can find to use for my designs. We want our shirts to be ones that you will love for a long time. There's nothing worse than purchasing a shirt, and having it look terrible after going through the wash! Our shirts wear and wash well, and will stand the test of time!
If you ever have questions about shipping, sizing, turn around time, or anything else - feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also do custom and bulk orders - if you can dream it up, we can put it on a shirt (provided it's not copying someone else's design, or trademarked!). Just reach out to us, and we'll be happy to work with you!
