AN INDIANA BASED COMPANY STILL GOING STRONG
Pro Prints Gear was a home-based business started in 1987 in Marion, Indiana by Marv Moriarity. It operated with one employee and one screen printing machine. The focus of the business was sports apparel and uniforms. The business grew and eventually was sold to Ross Hoffman in the 1990’s. Mr. Hoffman expanded the business and built a 12,000 square foot building at 1424 W 35th Street in Marion. Mr. Hoffman added embroidery, promotional items and signage to Pro Print’s offerings.
In 2013 Steve and Kelly Turner bought the business from the Hoffman family. While sporting goods and athletic apparel still stay a strong part of the mix, the new owners shifted focus to grow the corporate apparel aspect of the business. In 2014 Pro Prints acquired 2B Personalized and expanded signage, trophy offerings and vehicle wraps. Square footage was expanded by another 10,000 feet at the 311 N Washington Street location. While 1424 W. 35th Street currently houses our retail store, business office, screen printing, embroidery, promotional items and trophy departments, our Washington Street location provides space for sign production, warehousing and vehicle wrap production and installation. Pro Prints currently has 27 team members.
Since 2013 Pro Prints has purchased new and updated equipment every year and invested in employee training and education. With new machinery Pro Prints Gear is able to screen print 400 shirts per hour. Our 17-head embroidery machines assure timely production and quality products.
We currently ship product to 46 states and businesses of all sizes. Some of the businesses that you might be familiar with are The Honest Company, TLC Healthcare, Tree of Life Bookstores, Tegna, Shelby Materials and C & C Supply.
