Ann Arbor T-Shirt Company

Jerry Kozak and Ricky Winowiecki began printing and selling t-shirts out of their college dorm with little success. After graduation, they borrowed $16,000 from friends and family to buy their first commercial t-shirt printer. After a couple more years of dismal sales, business started to pick up. The company got its first significant contracts and moved into a warehouse. With over 50 employees and two dogs, Ann Arbor t-shirt company prints and embroiders over 500,000 shirts per year for clients all over the world. This is a story about resilience and absolutely refusing to give up.
