Sugar Pie Tees may be a ‘Mom & Pop Shop’, but that doesn’t mean that we can do everything ourselves. As small business owners, we understand that to build a great company you need to have great partners. Still feeling a bit of the Valentine’s Day spirit this week, I’d like to share a little love with our screen printer, Traxler Tees.
Traxler, also based here in central Ohio, is a small, but growing company. Founded and owned by Zachary and Erin Traxler, Traxler Tees employs a team of highly-skilled and friendly screen printers and designers. They are huge advocates for supporting the local community and other small businesses.
So what is it that we love about Traxler Tees? I could probably sum it up in 1 sentence: They are so friendly and easy to work with and they deliver quality work! That’s true, but let me elaborate a bit.
Here is the process we’ve experienced using Traxler Tees over the last 6 months: After we finish a tee design and we’ve created our artwork, we create a mockup that we email to Traxler. We send our art files, describe the style of tee to be printed on and an amount of tees needed. We always provide our own tees for printing, but Traxler can take care of ordering any style of tee and quantity that a client may need. We then ask any additional questions and request a quote. A few hours later (it’s usually much quicker), we get a quote, our questions answered and we give the go-ahead for the job. Depending upon the size of our order, within 10 business days Traxler prints us top quality, great-looking tees that our customers love. It doesn’t get any easier or better than that.
But wait, there’s more! Since they are relatively small and they’re a local startup just like us, the great people at Traxler understand that the little guys (and gals) are just as important as the big dawgs. They have BIG business clients with large orders, and smaller clients like us at Sugar Pie Tees. When you work with Traxler, you never feel that size matters…and that is very refreshing indeed. They’re also more than happy to help clients with some basic (but very important) aspects of screen printing: how specific inks will look and feel, suggestions for desirable tee fabrics and styles at good prices, etc. They give small business the service they want and need. I truly believe that using Traxler Tees for our screen printing has definitely played a part in our success.
Yes, great companies need great partners. So if you have a screen printing job (BIG or small) and you want top-notch quality, friendly service and reasonable rates…give our friends (and partners) over at Traxler Tees a call.
And tell ’em Sugar Pie sends her love.
