We met Tony from skool bandz at a PTA training event here in Las Vegas. We both had a booth and displayed our products. We’ve been happy with events such as this one as all of the vendors are very friendly to each other. Everyone is always open and willing to help each other whether that be at the event or even afterwards. Once Tony saw some of the glitter shirts we made for schools in our area he knew he wanted a few for his own company.
Tony sent us his logo and at first it was a bit overwhelming. There was a lot of detail in it. Screen printing the design would have been a breeze as we can get finer detail to show up however Tony wanted glitter. Glitter comes in vinyl rolls which is cut on our plotter. The excess material is then pulled off in a method known as weeding. You are left with a mirror image of your design which is then flipped over and heat pressed onto a garment; t-shirt, sweatshirt, tote bags, onsies (yes even baby onsies). Since the vinyl is cut you can’t get too thin of a line and besides that if it’s too thin you can’t see the glitter as well. So what we did for Tony is grabbed a portion of his logo and used that for the t-shirt. His design was distressed so it gave a pretty cool look when it was done.
Since making shirts for skool bandz we have seen them at another PTA event wearing our shirts. It always brings a smile to our faces when we see shirts that we’ve made for people around town.
