Well, that is what SE student Alexis Cortez does on a daily basis. Cortez, who has been in bands in the past, met the owner of Trust Printshop at a concert that he played with him a few years ago.

“I got the job because my band and Matt’s band played a show together once,” he said. “We’ve been friends ever since.”

Matt Lucas, the owner of Trust Printshop, offered Cortez the job about a year ago. They have printed shirts for bands such as Train, Jet, Something Corporate and Boys Like Girls.

“It’s pretty awesome because it’s just a tiny little shop in Mansfield, and we only have five guys that work there,” he said. “We’re pretty much the best.”
