Tuesday the folks from iGear in Mandan gave both freshmen Graphic Design and Communications classes a tour of their design and printing facility. The company specializes in silk screening and embroidery on apparel and promotional items. Two Michelles, Jesse, Amy and Troy did a fabulous job of showing the facility, the products they create and the processes they use.
A huge bonus to the tour was the t-shirt in the picture. Students were asked to create a two-color design a couple days ahead of the tour. The classes voted on their favorite design, then iGear provided each student with a free shirt to print the design on. Jesse from iGear had the screens set up when we arrived and showed the students the proper way to print the shirts, then each student was able to pull the squeegee and try it out.
Thanks so much for the great tour.
