"Respect my space" shirts being made in Cayucos

Posted at 5:43 AM, Apr 24, 2020

Central Coast residents can have a "respect my space" shirt made for them in Cayucos this weekend.

Paul Choucalas, a local construction company owner, is spending his off time during the pandemic to support the community and help spread awareness.

Choucalas said all community members need to do is bring their own shirt and someone wearing protective clothing and a mask will collect it from you and return it to your car.

Prior to the printing, the shirts will be run through the dryer at about 320 degrees to kill any potential germs. After the shirt is printed the shirt will be ran through the dryer again before being returned to its owner.

"We'll have to look at traffic. If five people show up, no problem. If 500 people show up, we'll have to guide people around the neighborhood. Get everyone up here. We should have some music going. And it will be a fun time," said Choucalas.

The printing takes place on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m at 2970 Santa Barbara Avenue in Cayucos. There is a two shirt per car limit.

Choucalas says to bring a cotton shirt of a lighter color because it is red ink. The shirt can also be printed in Spanish.

The printing is free, however there will be a donation box where all proceeds made will go to the foodbank in San Luis Obispo.
