Seamstress and Apparel Designer – Part Time

At the present time, Banner Sign is trying to launch a sports apparel line called “Neutralize the Zone”.

Our pilot project is custom designed hockey jerseys. We have several prototypes. But with apparel not being our core business, it’s been hard to further the project without the involvement of someone who has actually manufactured clothing.

We manufacture custom printed fabric 60” wide by 300ft long. Our focus is on producing banners and flags. However, we recognize there are limitless un-tapped opportunities in the apparel industry and wish to grow in that direction.

So, if you know how to make clothing and are able to invest some time into fine tuning our designs, we’re optimistic that out apparel will catch on and employment opportunities will follow.
