On Oct. 25, members of FBLA visited JEM Screen Printing and Embroidery to learn about their business and see the printing process. Prior to the visit, members of the club worked with JEM to design a T-shirt for the Halloween walk-a-thon that benefits Tamerlaine Animal Sanctuary and Preserve. 

The visit contained a brief overview of the business followed by a tour of the production area. JEM currently has three sections to their business which include Milford tourist merchandise, their own “Lake Bum” merchandise and opportunities for custom-made goods. 

Two of the owners, John and Sue Pfuhler, took the students through the screen-printing process that holds the majority of their sales. They explained how the design is made before showing a live demonstration of the screen-printing process.

“It was really interesting to see this process and all the moving parts behind the scenes,” president senior Lily Williams said.

All shirts made by JEM at the outing were donated to the walk-a-thon.
