Legacy Ink Design – We are More Than T-Shirts!

As an emerging entrepreneur, I am better understanding the merchandising side of marketing.  And, as a black woman, I am all about being intentional with your legacy.   And it all can start with a brand and a t-shirt.  There is so much opportunity in building a recognizable brand and selling a t-shirt, y’all.  That’s why we are featuring Legacy Ink Design located at 727 S. Church Street in Murfreesboro, TN on the blog.  Legacy Ink Design has partnered with so many of our favorite entrepreneurs and creative brands. Their clients range from colleges and universities (MTSU, TSU), local eateries (Slim and Husky’s), independent brands (Trap Garden), and media brands (Protect the Culture, and 101 the Beat). Add The Scenario Radio Show to the list of clients, as we were very pleased with the T-shirts we received for our first the ‘Scenario Radio Show Live’ event last week, in exchange for this blog post.  

Legacy Ink is without a doubt so much more than t-shirts.  Today on the blog, we talk merchandising with the Murfreesboro location and local face  Legacy Ink Design.  As always, my opinions are those of my own.
