Industry Comes Together for Atlantic City Community

Ink Kitchen went old school into the future at the Impressions Expo in Atlantic City. We did some great live poster printing, in keeping with analog hand-done artwork being more and more appreciated in a world filling up with digital work.

Recent shows indicate how our industry can go into a community and make a difference (Long Beach ISS) and this continued in Atlantic City where a beautiful poster was sold and industry sponsors really stepped up big time to support Adelaide’s Place, a non-profit with very low overhead using the funds to do great work with homeless women in Atlantic City. We were able to give Adelaide’s Place $7,200 and hook them up with garments as well. Please support the sponsors below who really generously stepped up.

This only happened because of the generous support of the following sponsors:
Alphabroder, Stretch Devices (Newman Roller Frames,) S&S Activewear, SanMar, M&R, Next Level Apparel, Stahl’s, SPSI, Bella+Canvas, AWDIS, GSF, Saati, Gildan, Chromaline, Impressions, and Permaset.

These companies really stepped up and put aside any competition for a moment and came together to make a difference in a community we visit once a year for the Impressions show.
