Hey! How have you guys been? Did you miss us? Well, we’re back.
Over the holidays, we had a chance to recharge and reflect, and we’re looking forward to what’s coming next.
Last year, we started narrowing the broad range of design projects we offered to focus more on screen printed and embroidered apparel, especially event t-shirts. We’ll be continuing in that direction.
In fact, we’ve already kicked off 2014 with t-shirts and hoodies for WordCampPhx, which starts today. More details on those later, but here’s a sneak peek of April trying on the volunteer hoodie.
It’s good to be back.
Everyone likes getting big checks. Turns out designing them is pretty great too – especially when the big (literally) check is going to someone with a big heart.
Recently, Eric and Glynis Legrand made the difficult decision to close the restaurant they owned and operated, Urban Tea Loft, to focus on Eric’s health after a serious diagnosis. They had been active and generous in their community, and the community rallied around them. Friends organized a fundraiser and several local restaurants agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds on August 2nd.
We designed and printed an oversized check, representing funds raised, for Chris Conrey and Tyler Hurst to present to the Legrands today. They were surprised and touched and said they plan to keep it as a momento of the support they’ve received.
A couple months before the new Gangplank opened up in Tucson, I headed south to deliver their first order of Gangplank t-shirts in person, tour their space and tweetup with Tucson Gangplankers-to-be.
Gangplank Tucson’s Grand Opening is today. While I’m unable to be there, I wish them all the very best, and I’m excited to see this new community grow!
