CHICAGO–Midwest screen printer Rags of Honor appears on a recent installment of CBS This Morning. In a short video segment, CBS correspondent Mark Albert speaks to employees from the shop, all of whom are veterans. Albert also tours the shop floor at Rags of Honor and speaks with company founder Mark Doyle, who explains that the mission of his shop is to hire homeless veterans and provide them a path to a stable living situation through job training.
“We’re trying to make people have a better life,” Doyle says in the interview.
The video profiles upticks in the company’s order demand as well. The shop now prints licensed apparel for sports teams from all four major leagues, including a run of shirts for the recent World Series win for the Chicago Cubs. CBS says the company hopes to reach $1 million in sales by next year.
The CBS spotlight is the latest development in a busy year for the company. In mid-summer 2016, a video profile showcased the company’s goals and discussed Mark Doyle’s vision for the shop’s future.
