An embroidery and screen printing shop that has been in business for nearly three decades in Newcomerstown is under new ownership and is offering new products and services to its customers.

Located at 130 W. Main St., Jessi Marcincavage and Mandy Seevers purchased Bowman Sportswear, previously owned by Gregory Bowman, who recently retired.

Bowman Sportswear specializes in producing hundreds of items in short turn-around times for embroidery and screen printing.

The retail store also features high school and youth league sporting apparel, which includes lettermen jackets, T-shirts, sweatpants, windbreaker pants, hooded sweatshirts, socks, hats, shorts, etc. Bowman's also offers a dry-cleaning service through Nikko's dry cleaning.

Under the new ownership, new apparel and trendy logos will be added to the showroom.

Seevers will operate the retail side of Bowman Sportswear.

Bowman's has two employees, who have more than 30 combined years in the embroidery/screen printing industry.

Marcincavage and Seevers agree that extended business hours, competitive prices, customer service and the trendiest logo designs will be the top priority of the business.

"Here at Bowman's, it is more than just T-shirts," they both said.

Bowman's now has the capability to supply promotional products to its customers, such as business cards, personalized pens, pencils, window decals, water bottles, mugs, etc.

Along with embroidery, screen printing and promotional products, Bowman Sportswear is able to place photos on custom-made sport balls, along with logos and any graphic arts. These products include baseballs, softballs, dog balls, hockey pucks, mini bowling balls, mini home plates, volleyballs, basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, specialized ornaments, baby blocks, golf balls and water polo balls.

"This process is done in-house so the turn-around time is rather quick," said Marcincavage. "The press is also portable and is able to travel to tournaments and other events. Bowman Sportswear wants to get more involved in helping non-profits with fundraising ideas. These photo balls are an excellent way for organizations to make large profits."

A Christmas open house/grand opening is planned for Nov. 12.
