Ben Robinson, director of Stahls’ Hotronix, sent me this great photo and story about two diehard Chicago Cubs fans who also happen to run a successful heat printing business. On Wednesday, sisters Brooke and Jennifer Platt of Gatsby Graphics in Indiana stopped by Stahls’ Hotronix in Masontown, Pennsylvania on their way to a baseball game. The Pittsburgh Pirates were hosting the Chicago Cubs at PNC park and the Platt sisters scheduled a work stop as part of their trip. According to Ben, Brooke and Jennifer travel frequently, as far as Milwaukee, to follow the Cubs. They attend over 30 games at the Chicago Cubs Wrigley home field per year! It turns out these ladies are more than just fans of the team–the Cubs hitting coach John Malee was their hitting coach in school. And it just so happens that Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates is one of Brooke’s favorite players. After talking baseball, Ben found out more about their business. In 2013 they started out of the garage with a Roland Versacamm and a heat press. The business has grown at a steady rate and they are very interested in purchasing a large format heat press to increase the type of items they can create. We look forward to hearing from you as you grow. And good luck to your Cubs who advanced to the National League Division Series during the Wildcard game. Ben wasn’t too happy about the performance, or lack thereof, of his Pittsburgh Pirates. Better luck next year Bucs.
