We are attending the NBM show in Long Beach this week. This was our first trade we attended a few years ago when we won Ryonet Pick Me Contest. For me, Kelley, this time I am much better equipped to find vendors and ask questions to increase business than I was before. I have learned so much just in one day. From meeting the guys form The Rhinestone World to Synergy 17 to Siser, its been a great experience. Meeting Ross Hunter from Reviation Industries was great too. He is super knowledgeable. Tomorrow I will be taking video to tell more abut the show. Here are just a few highlights from today.
I just wanted to add a quick post about Transfer Express. We first saw this company at the NBM Long Beach show in 2010. They have a really great system for ordering numbers, lettering, and if desired, designs for heat transfer. The items ship anywhere from the same day to two days out depending on what you order. We first used them for a softball team (The Lady Mustangs) that needed numbers and names on the back of the shirts we printed. The prices are reasonable and the customer service is excellent. The one thing I can say about Ryonet and company is that they spoil the customers on excellent customer service so now I expect the same from all the vendors I use! But Transfer Express holds their own on customer service too.
We finished our first softball team shirts today. Hoodies and t-shirts were on the menu! This order was our first time doing names and numbers so we had to find a company that would make this easy for us. When we went to the NBM show in Long Beach, CA last August, we ran across a company called Transfer Express. This company has a fantastic system set up to order names, letters, numbers, even custom designs for screen printers. With just a heat press, which we already have, we just needed to order the names and numbers. The whole process from ordering the names and numbers to the customer service people to help me make sure I was ordering correctly was a great process! I highly recommend checking them out to fulfill those obligations of name and numbers for teams. Quick, easy, and pretty good price too! We used Shirtspace.com for our shirts and hoodies of course. They, too, always provide us with good prices and good customer service!
