Limelite Graphics is a small family owned business in Carlock, Illinois that started in 2014. From the beginning, school sports and activities that the owner’s kids were involved in was the main drive behind starting the business. The owner, Jason Hospelhorn, was also the owner of a body shop spending thousands of dollars on apparel for the shop. Eventually, Jason along with his son Dakota, decided to purchase the first screen printing press and equipment.

Business slowly started growing as more coaches, teachers, and parents began bringing their orders to us. We were excited to help support our local school and spreading school spirit with apparel, banners, posters, and yard signs. Those small orders for one school have now turned into orders for many schools, businesses, and individuals. We are now a growing company with five full time employees, two screen printing presses, and a direct to garment machine.

We are thrilled to be sponsors of Fight For Life, Eureka JFL, CEGCYRA, and Carlock Softball and have donated back thousands of dollars to these programs. No matter how big or small your order is, you and your project are very important to us. We love to see the students, teachers, coaches, and business owners smile when they see their vision become a reality.
