“I am writing you regarding Jacki Wright. I wanted to let you know how appreciative we (Marcoot Jersey Creamery) are of her hard, diligent, and consistent work. She has alway been so kind to work with. Two years ago I called Silkworm, Inc. hoping to get some t-shirts designed for our Creamery. I spoke with Jacki for a few moments and she assured me that she would have her team work on some designs. By that afternoon, I had already received one proof from Jacki! I was very pleased with the rapid response! I knew I wanted to continue my business with Silkworm, Inc.

Also, I was impressed with Jacki’s professionalism. There are many times when I was looking for something and Jacki would research and get quotes for me very quickly! Jacki also is great with follow-up. There were a couple times when Jacki would meet me at the Carbondale Farmer’s Market to drop off our order on a Saturday. Jacki’s generosity is much appreciated. Jacki has also helped my parents with their requests as well. We plan to do much more business with Silkworm, Inc. in the future because of Jacki’s hard, diligent and consistent work. Thank you.”

“SIU Carbondale began an initiative to “Start Seeing Pink” – a campaign to bring breast cancer awareness to campus and raise money for a new scholarship called the Saluki Strength Breast Cancer Scholarship Fund. As part of our efforts, we worked with Silkworm to use apparel sales as a fundraiser by using their temporary online store. The online store was set up quickly and was easy to use by those purchasing our “Saluki Pink” apparel. Items were ordered and paid for online by each individual, then items were picked up by the customers from one convenient location on campus after online sales closed. The outcome was great – we had a total of $3,862 in sales our first year and we certainly look forward to using the convenience and worry-free option of Silkworm’s online store next year.”-Beth Alongi
