Meet a Young, Successful Entrepreneur

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

Jonathan Prizant knew in 2014, when he was a freshman in high school, that he wanted to start his own business. Despite being interested in pursuing a business education through school, he also wanted hands on experience in business. In 2015, Jonathan decided to launch a company that produces custom T-Shirts. Over the course of the next few years the company expanded from a small T-shirt printing gig to a full blown apparel decoration, graphic design, and branding agency. Skokie Printing Inc. grows every year. So does Jonathan.

The relative success of the small business hasn’t hindered his original plans, as he is also pursuing a college degree in business and marketing and will graduate in 2021.

“Building a business is a 100 percent learning experience. My father has no formal education and has been running an IT company company since the 90s, while my mom has a master’s in business. My goal is to have both: the first hand experience of bootstrapping a company and an official college business education. It’s a balancing act, but I’m proud to have the opportunity to experience both.”

While Jonathan is home-based, he works with part-time employees. Their goal is to respond to customers’ unique needs and interest in custom T-Shirts, jackets, embroidery and other possibilities. “Personal customer service is critical.”

“We offer a customized printing solution for any organization or an event. We apply a variety of different methods and can transfer anything from basic text and full color photos onto your garment via a unique approach.”

Currently, one of Jonathan’s top priorities is networking. “I’m more concerned with meeting business owners and developing lasting relationships with my clients. My ultimate goal is to expand from printing into all aspects of advertising and be the go-to guy for marketing small businesses and organizations.”
