Cleveland Flea + Jakprints = A match made in Cleveland.

OUR JAKPRINTS LOVE STORY.

What can I say? I fell in love with Jakprints before The Cleveland Flea was even a twinkle in my eye.  At the time, I was beginning my own small, creative business, called Indie Foundry. I was learning how to help makers, dreamers and doers turn what they loved or made into what they did. Jakprints was the cool guy in the corner, mysterious and quiet with some serious style. He knew all the cool kids in town, and his name was stamped on many of the most interesting events and concerts around. But then I summoned my courage and decided to have my business cards created there. My first business cards. I remember that moment. Going from hobby-status to full-time freelancer was terrifying.....BUT I HAD THIS AMAZING BUSINESS CARD. I knew I could make it. And I did.

Fast forward a few years, and I watch so many creative bad asses go through the same experience, many of them with our friend Jakprints right by their side. 

Hey Jakprints-

We couldn't and wouldn't want to do it without you.

2015 was a year we really stepped up our game. We hired 4 full-time employees. We ran a successful Kickstarter campaign. We brought the on-site brand experience of the flea up several notches. We helped a bunch of kick-ass brands launch and soar through our design firm, Indie Foundry, and The Flea. We dared to dream and then watched it happen in front of our eyes. So how'd we do it? Well a whole lotta hustle and a kick-ass partner who can print some of the raddest sh*t around. We use Jakprints for all our client work for many reasons, but the biggest is that in addition their super high-quality and quick turnaround, they're just absolutely supportive of creatives here in Cleveland and all across the world, really. They make us feel great, even when we're cutting things close and attempting to order tee shirts right before the Flea....again and again and again.  

Here's a little run-down of the pieces and parts that our friend, collaborator and sponsor, Jakprints rocked out for us to help make our brand more BOSS.
