Meltdown Creative Works
During these unprecedented and trying times, Meltdown recognizes that local business owners are facing many struggles. We are proud to have found a way to use our resources to collaborate with local small businesses. Each business participating in our #commUNITY shirt program has a special logo or graphic tee for sale on our website. Meltdown takes care of the selling, printing, and delivery of all products while sharing the profits with each business.
With the help of social media and each business’s promotion, we hope to provide the community with a different and creative way to support the businesses that make up McClean County. This effort unites us to help each small business survive another day. Through this, we hope to offer the community an opportunity to stay connected with their favorite stores, restaurants, and bakeries from the comfort of their own couches.
