HEBRON, Kentucky — A company that makes custom T-shirts used for organizations and fundraising campaigns is opening a new plant in Hebron, where it plans to create up to 299 new jobs and invest nearly $22 million.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says Teespring Inc. will locate in a 105,000-square-foot facility and is expected to be up and running early next year.

Northern Kentucky was chosen over Texas for the project. Kentucky has given preliminary approval for tax incentives of up to $2.5 million for the project.

The California-based Teespring was created in 2011 to meet demand for small- to medium-order custom T-shirts. The company has used suppliers to fill orders, but the new facility will allow it to make more of its product in-house.
