I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon at Four Ambition‘s open house. It was an awesome space located in a refurbished factory building off Linden Ave. Shannon was screen printing free shirts for everyone there and he was also entertaining questions about screen printing and Four Ambition. Unfortunately, I was a complete bum and had no insightful questions to ask him at the time. Despite me being tongue tied then, he was kind enough to answer my many questions for today’s SoOh Spotlight. Thanks Shannon!

We offer screen printing, embroidery, and graphic design services to businesses, design firms, and pretty much anyone who could use printed apparel. I love getting to see new designs come in and we also get to help out other entrepreneurs who are just getting started with their ventures!
How much of your work is influenced by Southern Ohio?
A ton, and we always try to get involved with the things in or around Dayton. Not to mention 95% of our clients are in Southern Ohio. I love my Dayton and all the surrounding areas!
What part of Southern Ohio do you live in and how long have you been here?
I currently live in Dayton, Ohio and was born and raised so 26 years now
What are your top 3 favorite places to eat in Southern Ohio?
So hard to pick just 3! But Marion’s pizza, Blind Bobs, and Milano’s are my favorites..but the deli on 2nd street and cherry house cafe are quickly earning their spots on that list
What are your top 3 favorite places to shop/thrift in Southern Ohio?
I’d say Valley Thrift store, Great Miami Outfitters for all my hiking/camping gear, and the Greene for sure
Anything else you would like to share about yourself, your work or Southern Ohio?
Just if you or know of anyone who needs decorated apparel, hit us up! And that Southern Ohio is awesome! You can have the urban city life here but drive 15 minutes and you can be hiking through the woods and connecting with nature. I think that’s what I love most about Dayton.
