New Product Alert – Super-Soft Tie-Dye T-Shirts

If you’re like us, you love a good tie-dye t-shirt, especially in the springtime, when bright colors are most in style.

And if you’re like us, you also hate the way so many tie-dye t-shirts are heavy cotton and are scratchy against your skin.

New Tie-Dye T-Shirt

Good news! Our friends at Alternative have just released a brand new “go-to t-shirt” in four tie-dye colors (blue, gold, grey, and pink), and we’re excited to share it with you, our favorite customers

Mass Incarceration in 2022 (via Prison Policy Initiative)

Our country continues incarcerating people at higher rates than any other country in the world. In a typical year, approximately 600,000 people enter prison, while people go to jail at least 10,000,000 times. If you loaded all those people on a bus, you’d have full busses parked end-to-end from New York City to San Francisco.

Turn90 Columbia: A Check-in With Program Manager Sarah Brown

When we opened the doors to Turn90 Columbia in October 2021, truth be told, we had no idea how it would go. We were confident we’d prepared as best we could. The staff was trained and ready, and the program participants were on time for class. But! This was our first time replicating our pilot program. What were we missing that we didn’t even know about?

It turns out, there was plenty we didn’t know, and plenty of lessons to learn for our next expansion.

Still. Turn90 Columbia is more than we ever dreamed it could be. It’s served 18 men in the past four months, and a few participants are getting ready to become the first Columbia graduates. That being the case, we thought it was a great time to check in with our Columbia Program Manager, Sarah Brown, to see how things are really going up there.

The Ordering Process with Maura Langston

At Turn90, we make every effort to make our ordering process as smooth and transparent as possible. To that end, we recently sat down with Maura Langston, our Business Development Manager, to learn a bit more about how orders move through our system, and how we’re working to meet every customer’s needs

Returning from Prison: 6 Hidden Barriers to Success

Men coming home from prison face a unique set of challenges. Many of those barriers – clothes, food, bus passes – can be addressed by reentry programs that focus on emergency needs. Other barriers are more complex, like navigating the DMV to get a driver’s license or finding a new job but are visible and well-documented. 

However, some of the most complicated reentry issues are less often discussed. Many are emotionally fraught and none are easy to solve. Any one of these six hidden barriers can cause someone to say “F*** it” and return to street life. 

How Are Supply Chains Affecting Turn90?

It’s hard to walk three feet these days without hearing about supply chains. Merchandise is stuck on container ships. No one can get the supplies they need from overseas, so manufacturing is grinding to a halt. It’s the end of the world!

Okay, so maybe not THAT extreme, but you get the point.

The fact remains that supply chains are an issue, and yes, we’re feeling it at the Turn90 Print Shop. Absolutely. Sometimes we go to order a cut/fabric/brand of t-shirt we’ve ordered a million times and it’s just…not…there…
