In October we were fortunate to meet a great client, Lori Castillo. Lori is part of an inspiring team of women that are working hard to lose weight. They formed a team called the Fluffy Puff Girls and work out together at the Fitness Source in Las Vegas. We first met Lori because she found us on an Internet search for T-Shirt in Las Vegas. We made 5 shirts for her with a quick turnaround so the Fluffy Puff Girls could have these shirts in time for their first 5k! The 5k was called “The Biggest Winner” and that is just what the Fluffy Puff Girls did! They won!
We were very proud to make the shirts for such a great group. And we were even more excited when they wanted more shirts made for another 5k in February! Instead of the pink shirts they wanted to print on black shirts. This change affected the design because the original prints were pink, white, and black ink. The black ink was the outline and details and would not show up on black shirts.
When I spoke with Lori she said that she really wanted the weights to show up on the black shirts. As we already had the designs made, I didn’t want to redo the screens if we changed the design. So we used the same designs and decided to just tape up what would have been the black details except for the weights. We then used silver shimmer for the weights. After a few trials, the shimmer really made the difference. The silver looked just like hand weights!
To continue the story with Lori and the Fluffy Puff Girls, well, hopefully our shirts are their lucky charms as they won another 5k! Great job ladies! Thanks for letting us make your shirts again!
