Thanks for checking out these design ideas for your fall apparel.
 
As always, these are just ideas. If you've ordered from us before, you'll know that we can help you come up with any design you want, providing as much or as little input as you need.
 
We love helping our customers out with their designs, and we can help you bring your design to life.
 
Got an idea for a long sleeve tee or a baseball tee that you think would look perfect on your members this fall? Then let us know!
 
Whatever you need, now is the time to sort it out. Every year at about this time, gym owners come to me saying their members are already asking about warmer apparel, and my first thought is: You should have sorted it out last month!
 
So don't miss out. Get your gym all ready for Fall so as soon as those colder nights start to hit, you'll be ready with the perfect top to warm up your members and drop-ins.
 
As always, custom artwork is completely free!

CLIENT STORY: MOUSETRAP FITNESS

CLIENT STORY: MOUSETRAP FITNESS

MouseTrap Fitness has been working with us for a year and a half, and we've helped them to create some great designs in that time. Here, owner, Joe Vaughn, shares his thoughts on what the experience has been like so far …   

I'd been working with another shirt partner, but I was looking for a change. In the I'd been working with another shirt partner, but I was looking for a change. In the end, I was referred to Forever Fierce by other people in the CrossFit Owners section on Facebook, so I thought I'd give you a go.  

My initial impression was that they were very responsive to my emails, which impressed me. I was also impressed by the fast turnaround times, and I found it refreshing to have a partner that can quickly respond to our needs here at CrossFit Mousetrap.  

It's absolutely helped our business working with a full-service apparel partner like Forever Fierce. The fact that you can design, print and ship t-shirts very quickly allows me to better service our membership base and drop-ins.  

We can also change designs regularly, which at the moment is every six weeks, maximizing our revenue. This wouldn't be possible without a partner who works so quickly and efficiently.  

We've had so many great designs from Forever Fierce that it's tough to pick one out, but I'd have to say that my favorite design so far is the MouseTrap America shirts that we did last year

 

 

ARE YOU STUCK?

ARE YOU STUCK?

There are many reasons why you get stuck with the apparel process:

  1. A coach or influential member is driving you nuts about the design. The last time you ordered, they made it so miserable you swore to never do another order again.

  2. You’re “not creative” so you don’t want to start the process because you’re worried your members won’t like your idea.

  3. It’s been so long since you last ordered you don’t even know what to offer.

Well, we’re here to get you "unstuck". The benefit of working with us is that we are going to coach you through this process. Just as you coach your clients when they get “stuck” during a strength or nutrition plateau, I’m going to help you get this process moving again. 

Here are our 3 tips to getting “unstuck”:

  1. Control your brand. It’s ok to delegate. It’s not ok to abdicate. If you have a feeling that your GM/Head coach are overcomplicating the process, take it out of their hands and make the final decision. Gym owners really feel this when they drag their feet about apparel around seasonal weather changes. When the weather turns from Summer to Fall, your members are looking for a new long sleeve. Have it ready to go on the first chilly morning. By waiting and dragging your feet, you can potentially miss out on a valuable sale. Again, your members are going out to buy new apparel, why not yours? By delaying the purchase, you run the risk of losing out on the sale. 

  2. When you work with us, we’re going to show you plenty of past work examples to give you some inspiration. If you truly have no idea what you want, let us design for you and trust us with the design. We work with hundreds of gyms and we are confident we’ll design something that is popular with your members. 

  3. If it’s been so long since you last ordered, that tells us you need a plan. We offer a free comprehensive apparel plan in 3, 6, and12 month increments.  Ask us about setting up a time to go over a plan specific to your gym. 

So if you’re stuck, shoot us a message and let us know how we can help.
