Customers count on Daniel Ross and his staff at Ross Screenprint to deliver quality products with a creative touch and a warm smile. Many of those customers have been counting on the Antigonish native since he started his business as a 16-year-old high school student.
“I’ve been in business over half my life,” says Ross. “I didn’t even realize I was a businessperson until after I was one.”
That realization first started to dawn on Ross when as a Grade 10 student he purchased his first screen-printing equipment and began to produce customized t-shirts out of his bedroom. From there, he convinced his parents to let him build a 10’ x 12’ shop in the backyard. Next came a 16’ x 20’ building on his parents’ land. Finally, at the ripe old age of 18, Ross moved into commercial space in downtown Antigonish.
Today, his company has eight full-time employees, who are joined by part-time workers during peak periods. In August, for example, the business runs 24 hours a day.
