Designaway is a community-owned apparel printing business operated by Walnut Way Conservation Corp. from our newly-remodeled Innovation and Wellness Commons on 16th St and North Ave. In addition to apparel printing and fulfillment, Designaway designs and hosts online storefronts for clients who want to sell their decorated apparel directly to their customers.  

Designaway is Walnut Way’s latest innovative endeavor to address historic disinvestment in Lindsay Heights. Designaway is committed to reclaiming and redeveloping the vitality of Lindsay Heights by helping keep revenue, employment, and economic opportunities within our Milwaukee community all while offering competitive pricing, high-quality garments, and state-of-the-art printing services. So, becoming a Designaway client means not having to compromise your values to get a good value.

Walnut Way believes that building wealth in the community by the community can create systemic change. Your purchase is an investment into Milwaukee’s near Northside where commercial properties are 50% vacant. When you purchase from Walnut Way’s Designaway apparel printing program and affiliate sites you are investing in people and community by creating local jobs and bringing dollars back into the local economy.

Your purchase directly supports the creation of local jobs for people that live and can now work in the neighborhood. When we can supply orders to our Designaway fulfillment center, that means we can secure steady work for our production team leading to its growth.
