Pro Prints Gear is a local print ser­vice shop that was cre­at­ed as a home-based busi­ness in 1987 by Marv Mori­ar­i­ty. In the begin­ning of the shop’s open­ing, there was only one employ­ee and one screen print­ing machine. Although the focus was geared toward sports appar­el and uni­forms, the busi­ness quick­ly expand­ed and was sold to Ross Hoff­man in the 1990s. Hoff­man then built the loca­tion we know today at 1424 W. 35th Street, Mar­i­on, Indi­ana. This new­ly built loca­tion came with the added option of embroi­dery, pro­mo­tion­al items, and sig­nage. In 2013, Steve and Kel­ly Turn­er bought Pro Prints and shift­ed focus to cor­po­rate appar­el and acquired 2B Per­son­al­ized the fol­low­ing year. 

As a well-known busi­ness in Mar­i­on and sur­round­ing areas, Pro Prints prides them­selves in help­ing the com­mu­ni­ty. Whether it is through donat­ing to local char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tions, or spon­sor­ing the com­mu­ni­ty schools and PAL Club with t-shirts, Kel­ly Turn­er expressed, we try to help out wher­ev­er we can.” A pro­gram they cur­rent­ly have in place is, Pro Prints Gear takes time to be kind.” It is an ini­tia­tive focused on help­ing orga­ni­za­tions in the com­mu­ni­ty by lend­ing a hand through com­plet­ing tasks or help­ing with a des­ig­nat­ed project. 

As a sta­ple busi­ness in Mar­i­on, Pro Prints will con­tin­ue to strive to impact the com­mu­ni­ty in a great way, while pro­vid­ing appar­el that helps show team spirit.
