We were invited to have a booth at the Vitaly Scherbo Invitational, a gymnastics meet here in Vegas. We have sold at other events before but this would be our first gymnastics meet. We decided to bring our industrial heat press and use our glitter vinyl and press them on the shirt while the customer waits. We created eight designs and precut each design prior to the event. Customers selected their design and their shirt, which we had in several different colors.
|By far our most popular was the Got Chalk design. A gymnastics take on Got Chalk was just what the crowd wanted. We also created some “gymnastics mom” shirts which were a hit as well.|
One thing that we are going to do next year is make sure we have shirts that match each gym’s colors. Gymnasts are not too keen on a red shirt if red is a rival gym’s color.
All in all it was a pretty fun event. We didn’t get to see any of the gymnasts perform as we were stationed by the awards but it was still fun. Let us know if you are having an event where you need some t-shirts. We can make some great designs for you to sell at the concession stand!
