I Like FREE T shirts.

We are a husband and wife team who owns and operates a small business in the city of Philadelphia. Our company Statement Silkscreen has been serving the community for eight years as the choice screen printer for various organizations and individuals.
We experienced a pretty harsh winter here in Philadelphia and with spring quickly approaching, we thought, what better way to ignite rejuvenation than to give away FREE custom printed T shirts in celebration of SPRING! So, on March 20th, the 1 st day of spring, with the help of a few select sponsors we managed to give away 3000 FREE T shirts throughout the city of Philadelphia. It was a great day and the response from the people was remarkable and well received. We had a mother ask for an extra T shirt to take to her daughter who was in the hospital with cancer, who went as far as to show us her hospital bracelet. We had no idea the impact this giveaway would have, but we are rejoicing for the opportunity we had to give.
FOX 29 invited us on their morning show that morning to give away a few shirts in the morning outside the station. We gave away 1000 of the shirts in 1 hour. By the time we made it to the streets to giveaway the remaining shirts, the city was expecting us!
We may not have all the money in the world, but we do have resources to print shirts. So, T shirts are what we give.
