Creating your own one of a kind gift

December 2nd, 2016 6:14 AM

When Oak Park 5th grader Carlos Reyes wanted a sweatshirt with his favorite band Zomboy, his options were limited. With some careful saving he was able to create his own at ShirtWorks in Oak Park. Located on Marion in the heart of Down Town Oak Park, Shirtworks is an Oak Park family owned business that has been here for 40 years. Shirtworks will work to ensure that your ideas and design become a one of a kind embroidered or screen printed wearable gift.
