Weiskamp is a major custom shirt and apparel designer for the Champaign-Urbana area, and the University of Illinois. Weiskamp’s studios features a shirt printing press, glass and screen printing, and a digital design studio.

Kids were provided a tour of the process taken to produce custom designs for private customers. Common creations are caps, posters, canvas portraits, shirts & sweaters, glassed designs, website designs.

It was great that kids had an opportunity to speak with staff who informed them of their operations, education, and skills. Getting these messages in their hometown is a very fortunate opportunity and tangible impression. Maybe some kids may consider digital or mechanical design as their future educational or professional path.
