Jamaica Bags

About six months ago I was contacted about making totebags for friends that were getting married in Jamaica. The couple wanted to give all of their guests a special gift for making the trip to Jamaica to see their wedding.  Although we took our time on both sides coming up with a design, I started shopping for just the perfect bag right away.  I know when Kyle and I went to Jamaica there was a large variety of bags to choose from and I wanted this bag to be a good size and quality.  After doing some research I purchased four bags from www.shirtspace.com that I wanted to see in person.  I am so glad that I did!  Although all of them had “khaki” or “tan” in the description, not all of them were the color that I pictured.  One was listed as khaki, but arrived as a dark olive green!  

After deciding on a large canvas bag that had an inside pocket and zipped closed, it was time to order the bags. We worked with the couple to narrow down design choices.  Ulitmately they came up with a design that we just tweaked for printing.  We decided to use a light blue pearl ink, but have Transfer Express make the designs for us.  We have used Transfer Express before and they do great work as well as have excellent customer service.  After just a few days of placing the order, our designs arrived.  I printed a  bag right away and was thrilled with the results!  A couple of days later I printed the rest of the bags and shipped them out to the happy couple! 

We were very pleased to see pictures from Jamaica of our bags being used readily.  We recieved a post card from the couple today that said, “Thank you so much for the bags!  Our guests used them everyday.  It was easy to spot our group on the beach by the collection of bags.  Everyone commented how great they looked.  We appreciate you guys taking the time to make them for us.  Thank you!!!!”  Those few lines say it all.  We love our customers and we love making our customers happy!

       

Transfer Express

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.
