We visit Rockford Art Deli in Rockford, IL to chat with owner Jarrod Hennis in our first Printavo Shop Tour since the pandemic began!
By building a brand around Rockford, Jarrod has harnessed the power of community to become his town’s favorite local print shop.
Each year, Rockford Art Deli’s pre-holiday Free Print Day brings in hundreds (if not thousands!) of people for a free screen printed t-shirt.
What started as a hobby in a basement has blossomed into a formidable business: a thriving retail operation with a print shop right in the middle of it all.
We’ve spent a lot of time with Jarrod before (he’s just an hour away from Chicago, after all) and look forward to seeing how 2021 will shape this inspiring, “deli-style” print shop.
