Embroidery, though it has a long and rich tradition, is a thoroughly modern industry. A design idea may start with pencil and paper, but it soon meets a computerized manufacturing process. Artwork must be digitized (converted) into a computerized embroidery format. A series of steps are taken to insure that a design idea, already translated to computer, will translate once more to thread and fabric.
We offer different types of methods to produce apparel for you. Embroidery is our most requested, but other types such as Dye Sublimation and Laser-cut production practices are gaining in popularity. Laser-cut apparel works best on polar fleece and fleece clothing. Attractive and understated, laser-cut logoed apparel is the new way to advertise your business-corporate or agricultural. Dye Sublimated clothing is quite attractive-giving full color options, all-over print as well as placed logos can be put on t-shirts, fleece, hats, scarves, shorts, polos and many other items. Both the Laser-cut and Dye Sublimated options are economical and durable, no cracking, fading or peeling. The Dye Sublimation can bring your ideas to life and provide visual depth to the photos or designs on your clothing. Great partnered with embroidery, bringing dimension to your design.
Promotional Items are an integral part of a complete marketing strategy for growing and promoting a business by increasing awareness of a new service or products, recognizing employee efforts, or merely generating valuable good will among customers

Business events, tradeshows and on-hand inventory that can be handed out to customers will advertise your company’s brand name or products in a direct way that your clients will be happy to use and items with your company logo will give your business constant recognition.

Graphic designers work with drawn, painted, photographed, or computer-generated images (pictures), but they also design the letterforms that make up various typefaces found in movie credits and TV ads; in books, magazines, and menus; and even on computer screens. Designers create, choose, and organize these elements-typography, images, and the so-called “white space” around them-to communicate a message. Graphic design is a part of your daily life. From humble things like gum wrappers to huge things like billboards to the T-shirt you're wearing, graphic design informs, persuades, organizes, stimulates, locates, identifies, attracts attention and provides pleasure..
Graphic design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas. The designer works with a variety of communication tools in order to convey a message from a client to a particular audience. The main tools are image and typography. Designers develop images to represent the ideas their clients want to communicate. Images can be incredibly powerful and compelling tools of communication, conveying not only information but also moods and emotions. People respond to images instinctively based on their personalities, associations, and previous experience.
Our graphic designer, Sarah Brakke, will work with you and evaluate the message you or your business wishes to convey, getting it in front of the public, designing gifts that are pleasing to the eye, attracting attention to your message. Whether it’s support for your favorite team, a photo gift for family or friends, awards for employees or competitors, business branding or printed materials, Sarah has the experience, vision and creativity to provide you, our client, with a desirable, attractive product that will stimulate your business, provide pleasure and bring attention to your message.
