A new student led business

Cascadia Designs is a new student lead business in the Business Principles program. Beginning last fall, the students brainstormed ideas. The class discovered a need that they could address. Cascadia Tech students do not have items to remember classmates, like a yearbook. The idea to create a customized shirt for each program was born.


The students used computer software to create a mock-up of the shirt with the names and logo as it would appear and pitched it to each program. The students developed an ordering process and shared sample merchandise to demonstrate the quality of the clothing. The interest of the staff and students created quite a buzz on campus resulting in sales that exceeded their goals!


The shirts are in the process of being printed. Stay tuned for updates.
