We want to extend an enthusiastic welcome to one of our new KDB Business members – Pan Ector Industries. You’ve likely come in contact with one of Pan Ector’s awesome screen-printed tshirts at one of the many events they participate in around Denton. They can be found at the Denton Community Market, Day of the Dead Festival, and KDB’s very own Redbud Festival. They have produced the tshirts for Great American Cleanup, Redbud Festival, and Tree Giveaway for many years, and are our exclusive tshirt provider.
