Together We Thrive

The recent events in Tucson has effected a lot of us.  President Obama will be at The U of A today for a community event call "Together We Thrive".  We got a call Monday night around 6:30 PM that the event needed 20,000 shirts delivered in Tucson by Wednesday 7:00 AM.  That meant we had to have McCreary's Tees pull shirts through the night Monday and have them at our shop by 6:00 AM Tuesday.  The art was in our hands by 9:00 AM, the 1st shirt was approved at noon, and the total job was printed and boxed up by 11:00 PM.  The shirts were in Tucson before 7:00 AM this morning.  It felt really good to meet this deadline.  I am very proud again of the people we work with.  McCreary's came through with the shirts, our employees came through without taking breaks yesterday, and our other customers gave us permission to move their work to the next day so we could get this project done. It makes us feel great to be able to do our part in supporting an event like the one in Tucson this morning.Thanks everyone!

Here are a few links to visit where you can follow the events today and I assume most of the news channels will be covering it as well.

Bowl Season is Over!

Last night, we were among 78,000 screaming fans. Most were all watching to see if their teams would be National Champions. Well, we watched knowing that this was the end to another long bowl season for Info Screen Printing.   It looks like we may have survived one more year.  I would like to simultaneously thank AND say sorry to all of our customers whose jobs we had to move around to keep up with the Bowl demand this year.  I will do some finalizing of the numbers but it appears with all three bowl games this year, Insight Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and BCS National Championship game, we printed about 64,000 shirts.  The frenzy this year over this game was unbelievable and it affected us daily.  Demand continued to rise for shirts almost on an hourly bases.  If it were not for the efforts of McCreary's Tees, (and our brand new 12 color press!) we would have never gotten it all done, this year.  The McCreary's staff, especially Dave and Jimmy, really took great care of us.  I am sure they do not want the world to know that they work extra hours and weekends to keep up with the demand.  To have a local supplier that is so willing to work with us and understand our needs was invaluable!  There is no way we could every thank them enough.  

It is always bitter sweet when it comes to an end but after 7 years we are getting use to it.   Even with all the crazy demands, last minute jobs and chaos that there is working with the Fiesta Bowl, I don't think any of us would change a thing.  They expect a lot of us, 24 hour shifts, staying on call for the Holidays and meeting unrealistic time-lines, but they do it with respect.  That is what makes them such a great customer.  Thanks for the work, Fiesta Bowl, and we look forward to next bowl season!!

Here is a picture and a video from last night.

Top Volume Screen Printers

The numbers are in and Info Screen Printing is #17 on this years 'Top Volume screen printers' list in Impressions Magazine.  I would really like to thank all of you for this achievement. Whether we're doing that one shirt job or doing 160,000 prints for a sports franchise, it ALL adds up.  In the end, every shirt we print comes from you, our customers, and we deeply appreciate it.

Here is a run down of our numbers for 2009.

839,227 finished garments this could be a shirt that has a front and back print but is only counted once
1.4 Million impressions this is every print our presses print over the year
160,000 Prints  was our biggest job

Coyotes White Out Shirts

We just finished printing 25,000 shirts for the Coyotes Hockey team.  The print was 2 locations so the job was a total of 50,000 prints. These will be the shirts they hand out at the front gate for what they call "The White Out".  The team tries to have every fan wear a white shirt so the stands are completely whited out. This was a very nice job for us.  It put us a little behind with other work this last week but I think we did a really good job of still meeting the needs of our other customers.

With the anticipation of the Coyotes making the second round of playoffs we need to block out some dates for their next production run.  We will only have a couple of days to print their next White Out shirts so we need to make sure we do not book any other work for a couple of days towards the end of April. They are as follows: 



Thursday, April  22nd

Friday, April 23rd

Monday, April 26th


If you have any jobs that are due on these dates please find out if you can move them up or move them back.  I know there are some of you reading this and saying to yourselves "this doesn't apply to me" but I assure you, it does.  All of our presses will be running to get this job done on time and because of the tight timeline we will not be able to stop and do any other work.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.  We will do our best to check all your PO's to make sure they are not due on these dates but your help in scheduling will be most appreciated.


Thanks for the Work!
