Our Culture (aka expectations) – All B-Unlimited team members should possess:

Strong Work Ethic – We get shirts done. We’re the largest capacity producer in the state, and we have unparalleled turnaround time and customer satisfaction. That’s because we all work hard, all the time. Well, except for when it’s play time!

Attention to Detail – Every step of the printing process requires scrutinizing attention to detail. The smallest oversights result in really expensive corrections, so we need team members who aim to get it right the first time.

Strong Communication Skills – Unlike most printing companies, we house sales, art, production, and shipping all in one space. Every print job is a collaboration between all of these departments, and we use specialized softwares, walkie talkies, e-mail, text, and good old fashioned words to get things done. Clear, kind, and quick communication is essential.

Collaborative Propensity – Everything that we create is the product of collaboration. Teamwork is a must, and our team is built of people who are both dependable and adaptable, humble yet take pride in their work, and take initiative while being understanding.
