New Retail Location, New Momentum

We moved into our first retail location and had our grand opening September 17!  As I write this I can hardly believe it has been almost two months since we opened.  We were really busy between the remodeling of the store, the grand opening, and keeping up with orders.  We have embraced our busy schedule and are getting our feet under us now.  Trying to keep up with the blog has been challenging although I think about writing here a lot.  I think we have a lot to share and I will try to do so.

Here are a few pics from the grand opening!

LOVE Baseball (glitter options versus rhinestones)

We have a fun design on our store called LOVE Baseball.  You can see the design here.  We enjoy making the design and have customized this design using several school names, and most recently a last name!  The nice thing about using glitter to make this design is the capability to customize the text to fit the needs of the client and make the design personal.

For example in this design you can find here, the only options we can easily offer are precut numbers to put on the design as the cost of cutting out names for each client would be cost prohibitive for the customer. This design is still fun and personal but not quite to the level of personalization seen below.

But with the LOVE Baseball design, you can see that with the glitter being a vinyl, we can cut the vinyl into the name or school of your choice.  Vinyl is designed to be creative and provide options!  You can see from the pictures below that we can create lots of varieties of the same design but make them unique for the customer!

This design takes a nice twist as it is a softball instead of a baseball and is on a gray shirt!

The customer chose a fun long sleeve tee with lace up neckline to add some character to this fun design.

These two clients chose to put their child's number on the baseball to make it extra special.

With the name of the school, laces, and number in glitter and the ball and mascot solid, the glitter really pops on this black tee!
