When you need team t-shirts fast, Premier Printing can help. Last week, Loyal Girls basketball qualified for the state tournament. The community wanted to show some team spirit with custom apparel.
The team contacted Premier staff that night and designer Kristen Aumann stayed up that night to design a shirt. Screen printer and manager Lindsey Rasmussen came in on the weekend to develop an online site for orders. On Monday afternoon, Premier ordered the blank shirts, which arrived on Tuesday. Rasmussen printed until Wednesday afternoon, then Aumann delivered the shirts.
So in just four days, Premier Printing designed a custom t-shirt, created an online store from which fans could order their shirts, and printed more than 200 shirts in time for the next game!
“The support in Loyal for their athletic program is like none other,” said Rasmussen. “The dedication the coaches have, and the want to succeed by the kids is fun to watch!”
The t-shirt process began on the computer, where Aumann developed the t-shirt design.
“I live in Loyal and am a Loyal graduate, so it was especially fun for me to do this project,” she said. “As a coach myself, I really enjoy helping every team create unique apparel!”
Next, Premier developed an online store to make ordering easier. The print team created the screens (LINK TO OTHER VIDEO) and hand-printed each individual shirt. The shirts were then packaged, sorted by individual order, and ready to go.
” It’s stressful to turn that many shirts around so quickly for an entire community,” said Rasmussen. “Seeing it all come together and the entire community wearing their apparel makes it WAY worth it!”
