Troy Devoe, from the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Pleasant Point, and Nikki Pooler operate a screen print shop from their home in Hermon. The business was started by Troy 10 years ago as a hobby. Both Troy and Nikki enjoy creative work – designing t-shirts, logo wear and hats they print for customers. Past clients have included the Masons, Shriners and Widows Sons civic groups of which Troy is a member. Troy is also one of the Shriner Clowns that we see in many parades during the summer. He has printed work for these organizations along with events and activities for the Hermon public schools. He recently did work for the Penobscot Nation and wants to expand and serve all Maine tribal communities.
Troy has operated the business from his garage for many years and he outgrew the space. Four Directions was able to provide financing for a new workshop giving him much more space for his printing and inventory. With support from FDDC, Evolution Graphix will continue to grow and flourish as a Native-owned small business!
