ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A Rockford printing company is scoring today by making tens of thousands of champion T-shirts after last night’s big Super Bowl win for the Seattle Seahawks.
More than 100 workers at Guerilla Graffix started bright and early this morning, making nearly 52,000 t-shirts. That’s more than $300,000 worth of clothes, most of which will be shipped to the Northwest to places like Seattle and Oregon. Guerilla Graffix has been contracted through Nike to make winning teams shirts for several years.
“It is kind of cool now you step back and look at it it's something that you get to be a part of a history of some sort, being able to produce some things that are kind of not typical for our industry all the time,” said Daniel Smithline.
Employees say they’ll finish up the order today, however production for the winning teams shirt could last all week, depending on the demand. He says the next big order will be shirts for the NHL finals.
