Heat Printing for Black History Month

February, we celebrate the diversity in this country by honoring Black History Month. This celebration was started by a local college, Kent State in 1970.   President Gerald Ford made it a national event as part of the United States Bicentennial celebration in 1976 saying Americans should, “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”     This month is a great opportunity for a new t-shirt market with all of the heat printing opportunities.
