Helping small business owners increase professionalism and brand awareness through high-quality prints.

First impressions are everything.

As a small business owner himself, Dalen Banks knows firsthand how professionalism and brand awareness can help grow other small businesses.

Dalen founded Defining Trendsetting Custom Print Shop to help other small businesses put their best foot forward by printing high-quality t-shirts, banners, and signs.

Defining Trendsetting Custom Print Shop. T-shirts, wall decals, phone cases, dog tags, coffee mugs, license plates, keychains, pillowcases, & more. 2050 Lafayette St. 260-755-1038. Monday-Saturday, 10AM-6PM. We don't set trends, we define them!

Defining Trendsetting takes pride in helping local small business owners increase their professionalism and brand awareness through high-quality prints. But Dalen’s services don’t stop there.

In addition to businesses, Dalen also serves families and schools. For families, he prints custom t-shirts for reunions and gifts, and for schools, he is able to provide signage, student and faculty swag, and more.

Eventually, Dalen hopes to expand Defining Trendsetting’s services through new machinery. 

An embroidery machine will let him offer embroidered items for customers who want more than the standard screen print. A sublimation printer will allow him to offer custom branded items such as welcome mats, bath and beach towels, basketball jerseys, and more. He also wants to be able to offer car wrapping services.
