Is This Your First Time?

There's a first time for everything! If this is your first time working with us, let's give you some direction and best practices to ensure a smooth ordering process.

Before we send you a mock up: We need some direction. Your sales rep will provide you with a portfolio of our best selling designs of all time. We are constantly working on new and fresh designs. All the designs you see from us are fully customizable for your business. Whether that is garment styles, art colors, or garment color- we can customize everything! If you have your own idea that you would like us make come to life, just send us over the idea and we'll do our best!

After you receive the mock up: What should you do after you receive the mock up? Check it out and let it simmer for a few hours. Quick feedback is usually the worst feedback. So try and avoid giving us your first impression. Get it a half or day or so to settle. Then send us your feedback or edits. This sounds weird and yes we love to move fast and get stuff done but in our experience, letting the design "settle" usually results in the most productive feedback. In terms of showing people the design: Understand and come to terms with the fact that you will not make everyone happy. I have seen owners driver themselves to the brink of insanity trying to please everyone with a design. The design really only needs to work for 50-60% of the gym. Not everyone is going to buy a shirt. That is ok. But it needs to be popular enough to make it worth the effort of running an apparel sale. You will feel when something is an instant no. You will know when something will be an instant hit. Maybe show 2-3 people and that's it. Anything more than that and it becomes a committee and we all know how committees usually work (they don't) :-) .

If you feel like you're stuck or unsure of how to get started or how to streamline the feedback process, simply reach out to your sales rep and let them help you troubleshoot the issue!
