T-shirt Designs and Screen Printing for Indy Pride
The organization Circle City IN Pride (CCINP) delivers a full week of events that serve as the largest fundraiser for Indy Pride, Inc. The week takes place annually in June during Pride month with a wide range of events in venues throughout Indianapolis. CCINP Week culminates with the Cadillac Barbie IN Pride Parade & Circle City IN Pride Festival on the 2nd Saturday of June. We were honored to be asked to design and print both the 5k Run shirts for the Rainbow Run and the official IN Pride Festival shirts that would be given away to sponsors and also sold during Pride week.
We ended up printing around 2,000 items which included t-shirts, tanks, and bandanas using a new process called fountain printing that results in an ever-changing rainbow print.
The shirts (which, not to toot our own horn but were very well received) were featured and sold in stores on Mass Ave and other events. We also lucked out and were asked to run the main merchandise booth closest to the main stage (yes, we were front and center for CC Music Factory among other great revelry). This is an additional service that we have that sets Timber Screen Printing apart from other promo companies. We have the capabilities to manage every aspect of the merchandising and promo products process for large scale events. This allows the organizers to focus on what they do best while we focus on what we do best.
The day turned out spectacular, and the people even more beautiful. One customer said it perfectly, “This festival is about expressing yourself in a place where you feel safe and wanted.” We couldn’t agree more! If you haven’t attended this LBGTQ festival or one like it then you are truly missing out on a great experience!
Supporting Indy Pride is a natural fit for our business because of the impact they have on the community. This year, they committed $165,000 over the next 3 years to the Indiana Youth Group, a local LBGTQ+ organization that empowers youth through its programs. This supports Indy Pride’s mission to unite and serve its members and the LGBTQ community of Central Indiana through leadership development, educational and support programs, and community events that achieve inclusivity, equality, strong community connections, and awareness of LGBTQ issues.
We love seeing the positive impacts on the entire Indianapolis community and beyond. Thanks Indy Pride for all you do and letting us be a part of it!
