INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — The screen printers are working nearly non-stop at Game Time Graphics in Independence, Missouri.

David Curtis runs the t-shirt printing company. Right now, he’s focused on Chiefs gear.

Tuesday and Wednesday crews had to fill thousands of orders for a shirt design with Chiefs running back Damien Williams. It says, “Playoff Mode” and “Kicking it into Gear” on the shirt with Williams’ picture.

Williams scored three touchdowns in Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans.

“It’s one of those things where Chiefs fans are crazy and you can’t print enough, so we will be printing all through the rest of the week,” Curtis said.

The shirts are available on Amazon and in Kansas City area Hy-Vee grocery stores.

Should the Chiefs win Sunday, Curtis said business will only get busier.
