In 1975, Special T Unlimited was born from the garage of Lou and Carmen Baldo. Shortly after, the business was moved to Hillside, Illinois, where it is still located today. 45 years later and the Baldo brothers can still be found managing the business. In 2014, Carmen’s daughter, Carli Baldo, joined her family in the business.
Right along Butterfield Road, you'll find our friendly staff in our showroom with every sales tool you'll ever need. Within the walls of our half block facility, you’ll still find us hard at work embroidering and screen printing on site. Giving us the ability to offer our superior service, quality, personalization and consistent work.
