What began as a simple “class project” between two high school friends printing t-shirts, in a basement, with a used manual press, has evolved into a multi million dollar full-service promotional products company right in the heart of Southern Illinois.
Silkworm, inc., now located in a 32,000 square foot facility and equipped with state of the art presses, machinery and 65 dedicated team members, is the region’s leader in custom graphic design, promotional products, embroidered apparel, banners, signage, awards, and of course, printed t-shirts.
Silkworm’s success is attributed to quality end products, competitive pricing, on time delivery, cutting edge graphics and attention to detail. The real secret which is no secret to thousands of satisfied Silkworm customers) is ACS, Awesome Customer Service. With professionals at every level of the business, Silkworm empowers their team members to go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. “We want to not only meet, but exceed, our customers’ expectations,” Bob Chambers, President.
Silkworm’s commitment to its customers is not confined to the 32,000 square foot of block and mortar it calls “home” as evidenced in its local and regional involvement. Everywhere you look you see Silkworm apparel, promotional products, banners and sponsorships throughout our Southern Illinois communities. The commitment to the communities they serve is unswerving.
A local company, with a regional and national customer base, Silkworm continuously strives to increase market share and has plans to establish satellite sales offices, outside of the primary sales market, in the next 12-24 months to better serve customers.
Silkworm has partnered with the Herrin Chamber of Commerce and the Festa committee, to promote HerrinFesta Italiana since its beginnings in 1991 and will be honored at the Mayor’s Banquet Thursday, May 22nd, at 6pm at the HerrinFesta Italiana Kick-off Banquet at the Herrin Civic Center and through their participation in many of the blue ribbon events during the festival.
