IRON MOUNTAIN — Local business Logo Sportswear is becoming part of Advanta Print, 407 Carpenter Ave. in Iron Mountain.

This acquisition better positions Advanta Print for quality screen printing and embroidery in the Dickinson County area, making the shop more efficient to support a growing customer base, said Chris Freeman, owner of Advanta Print.

“Due to workload and Andrea’s health, we believe this to be a mutually beneficial move for us,” said Chad Lindeman, co-owner of Logo Sportswear. “We approached Chris because we had heard good things about Advanta Print and the way they do business.”

Advanta Print has been looking for new staff in the areas of customer service and production, Freeman said.

Andrea Lindeman has led Logo Sportswear’s customer service for nearly 15 years and Chad Lindeman has more than 20 years in the screen-printing industry.

“I am thrilled to have Chad and Andrea a part of the Advanta Print family. They have the skills we need to continue offering a great customer experience as we grow. The timing could not be better,” Freeman said, adding, “it sounded like a good deal and it made sense.”

Logo Sportswear now becomes part of the Advanta Print operations, Freeman said.

“We are looking forward to joining Chris and his team. We will be the largest and most experienced screen-printing and embroidery shop in the area. I would like to thank all of our great customers and hope to see you at Advanta Print,” Chad Lindeman said.

Advanta Print is a screen-printing and embroidery company with more than 18 years of design and print experience.
