How our business is growing

We started this business over 7 years ago by winning a contest.  (If you want to go way back with us click here and you can see where we started). We started with exclusively screen printing and referrals from our friends and jobs from our kids’ teachers.  I remember our first paid job.  I was hooked!  I wanted to make more shirts for more people and enjoy seeing and being able to be a small part of the reasons why people had shirts made.

Since then we’ve made shirts for weddings, funerals, pets, family cruises, lots of businesses, birthdays, jokes, schools, clubs, sports, scouts, and many, many more!  My favorite experience is being out and about and randomly seeing a shirt we made.  The people wearing it don’t know we made it, but it makes me so happy. I’m very proud of the work that we do.

So where are we growing and going now?  As you know, we moved into our first retail location just over a year and business is certainly growing!  We have lots of repeat customers and gained lots of new ones from having this location.  I love hearing how people saw our sign and finally came in to see what we are all about!   Finishing the last quarter of 2017 we are helping schools plan for the spring semester, making holiday custom gifts such as embroidered towels and glitter applique sweatshirts, and also enjoying some holiday time with family and friends!  Stay tuned for what’s next at Sparkly Tees!

 

 

 

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.

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!
