"Working in a hand-on environment with the crew at R.C. was unlike any classroom experience could offer. Everyone was full of information, and willing to answer questions. I walked in not knowing much at all about Adobe CS3, the silkscreen process, or production, and walked out with a great understanding; all in a casual and comfortable environment!

Hopefully I will stop in soon to print out a couple of shirts!
Miss you guys!"
– Alyson Pitts, Intern '08
