We at Shirts On Steroids printing are a St. Louis based company which specializes in custom screen printing and custom embroidery 0n tee shirts and apparel through out St.Louis . We consider our selves to be approachable and forthright, I have always had a simple business philosophy communication is the key. Listen to your potential customer in order to pin point their objectives and achieve their goals. In short the art of listening, I have established many strong customer relationships, In doing so, spear headed the growth of T-shirt screen printing St.Louis, We cater to the St. Louis, Kansas City and St. Charles and St.peters , O'Fallon areas. This is where I outline my business strategy: in order to accomplish superior customer service customer relationships along with a superior product and over all great value.
- How and when I established, Shirts On Steroids screen printing St.Louis
I founded this tee shirt screen printing company years ago because I saw a need for screenprinting and embroidery on apparel. I realized that if I could really talk and listen to my customer that together we could pin point their needs and accomplish their trying to accomplish. I could structure a viable market place.
- Who is our normal every day clientele?
An every day bid normal request is for on custom screen printing on tee shirts or embroidery on caps, polo shirts or sweat shirts, that might vary from between 1 or 2 dozen to 10000 pieces. We don't really have a set in stone approach., because our customer base is so diverse. We pride our selves in the ability to be flexible. We treat the small tee shirt orders with the same respect and attention to detail as the large tee shirt orders. We realize that the customer who only needs twelve to twenty four embroidered shirts is typically on a very limited budget. Their expenditure is just as important to him or her as a major corporation's massive tee shirt order is to them. We give it the same respect and attention to detail because we know that it's all relative. I believe that this sensitivity to our customers is what distinguishes Sunburst Logo from most other custom screen printing and custom embroidery companies.
- How does t-shirt company typically communicate with its customers?
We get the bulk of our work two ways. The first way is repeat business. The same customer who orders now will call us back in four months when the season changes. In other words, they will go from custom screen printing short sleeve tees to custom screen printing on long sleeve tees, or they will go from custom embroidery on short sleeve polos to custom embroidery on long sleeve denim shirts? They might even switch from embroidery winter hats to screen printing on summer hats. We find that a repeat custom screen printing customer are usually easier to deal with than a first time custom screen printing customer. Why?
The first time you meet a customer, you not only have to sell him his custom embroidery or custom screen printing but you have to sell him your integrity. The repeat customer is already confident in your ability to deliver on your promises, so all he wants to do is either repeat his last order or just change the style shirt or hat or jacket.
- Could you describe your product line?
Shirts On Steroids and t-shirtstlouis has combination of over two thousand hats, tshirts and jackets. These range from what those in the screen printing industry refer to as a disposable carnival tee to extremely high-end designer brand polo shirts such as Bill Blass, Izod, Outerbanks, etc. worthy of the highest quality embroidery. No choice is right or wrong. It simply relates to customer goals and objectives.
- Why would a potential customer choose to work with t-shirt St.Louis over a competitor?
There are many reasons why you would prefer to work with Shirts On Steroids and t-Shirt St.Louis on your Custom embroidery and Custom screen printing projects. One of the more important ones is that we provide new custom embroidery customers with a finished sew out of their digitized embroidery before we actually apply it to the shirts hats or jackets. That way there is never a surprise when you open up your box. If there is an adjustment, we can simply edit the logo and provide another embroidered sew out for approval. Then and only then, do we start the embroidery production process. Surprisingly, this is not common industry standard.
Another reason is value. At Shirt On Steroids and t-shirt St. Louis, we encourage you to compare our bid to at least two other competitors, to be sure that you are getting the best possible value. We do this with confidence. When dealing with a new embroidery or screen printing customer, we will provide your bid as requested, and we usually try to bring some thing to the table in addition to that bid to create a perceived overall value that our competitors never even thought to volunteer. This is very conducive to establishing a first time customer. Once we complete that first order, the repeat orders usually take care of themselves, as well as the referrals. No matter the size of your custom screen printing or custom embroidery order you can be assured that it will be given respect. It will be produced by professionals who have over a million logos of experience under their belt.
- Please introduce your staff.
Our custom embroidery staff has well over one million embroidered sew outs under its belt. We also realize that the finished embroidery is only as good as the artist who digitized it. A digitizer produces unique work. A good digitizer has the ability to throw the stitches in different directions in order to create the illusion of depth. This allows the image to become almost three dimensional, while remaining clean, sharp and crisp. For example, when establishing embroidery for a hat, a good digitizer will recognize that a hat is a round and will embroider differently then flat goods like shirts or jackets. A hat logo will always work on a shirt but a shirt logo won't always work on a hat. A superior digitizer can often create an embroidery logo that will work on both, thus saving money towards future orders. We can also do specialty embroidery applications such as puff and even specialty embroidery threads such as neon, metallic, and glow in the dark threads.
Our custom tshirt screen printing staff also has well over 1 million tee shirt screen printing applications under its belt. They are accustomed to using the finest screen printing equipment that our industry offers. We are capable of handling twelve shirts or twelve thousand tee shirts. We can offer spot color screen printing as well as ten color simulation screenprinting. We use manual as well as automated press, capable of printing as many as four hundred shirts an hour, ten colors at a time. We offer a variety of specialty custom screenprinting effects such as glow in the dark, metallic, puff and high density applications.
