But This Is Just My Opinion
Hi, Charles...here, Your Cap and t-shirt guy From Texas. How are you doing today.
I have been doing that for the last 18 years. Taking care the needs of my customers and becoming Con fondant and friend.
Now I want to be your friend and take care of you.
But first I want to tell you a story.
I want to tell you a story about a customer of mine.
Keith lives in Florida he has been a customer of mine for 6 or 7 years. He always get's tshirts for his crew, and has them printed with one print just small over the pocket. I always ask let me print them big on back because you will get more exposure, but he always say's no.
On his last order he bought hats. I put two free t-shirts in with his order. He called me one month later. He said ok Charles because of you I need to hire more men. And I will need to double my order to.
He said, Do you know what has happened to me. Last weekend I was gassing my boat up and a man said to me do you do landscaping. I said yes, then I realized that I had on the shirt that you gave me yes the one that you printed big on the back. Anyway he said that he had a small apartment complex and was tired of trying to take care of it. He asked if I would come and look at it. I said yes I would. Yep I got the contract on his little apartment, 2 year annual contract on his 90 unite apartment complex.
I wanted to call and say that I wouldn't have gotten that contract without that t-shirt you printed big on the back.
Print them all bob from now on. Yes, this is what T-shirts can do for you.
These T-shirts are so good that I wished that I had a button that I could push after five years that would go poof then you would have to call me to get them again.
T-shirts are very good to advertise your company name or event.
The trend I have noticed, is the Manurefactures are not putting pockets on a lot of the colors. So more T-shirts are being sold without pockets. A badge of the smokers that have quite, I guess.
One of the things you need to be aware of is were you live or work. Hot climates go with 100% cotton just go with one size larger.
Taller person go with one size larger.
The T-shirt that I would like to poof is 50/50 wares like lron and last forever.
I ask. If that's is the tshirt that they usually get. I say is it time to change the oil in the shirts. I know that they haven't worn them out.
Don't forget the women. We have a complete section of tees just for the girls and hey, they look better than us anyway.
You better get them girls some T-shirts to, or I will make them there own site. Do you want me to girls.
One other thing only put you logo on name brand Tshirts. Don't listen to, it's just as good. Bemis (blemished) 2nds, or off brands are not worth it, unless you are looking for a rag to wash your hands with.
But this is just my opinion.

10 Cardinal Rules for Business Growth
After over 30 years of participating in hundreds of businesses, competing in at least as many different industries, with companies marketing both products and services, you begin to develop and accumulate some fundamental businesses axioms or "rules of thumb" that seem to make more sense everyday and gain more value in business practice as your career continues to advance and evolve.You like to think what you have learned and the business knowledge you have retained along your long and varied career path is unique, proprietary, or even "original", but somewhere deep inside you know that most of the things you hold near and dear to your own business self identity probably were already developed, practiced, and taught way before you ever entered your first business conference room.

Focus on unrealistic expectations ("I must do each job perfectly"; "If one person is unhappy then I have failed");? Have an 'all-or-nothing' attitude;? Pay heed to the internal and external naysayer;? Use the word SHOULD most often in relationship to your business;? Assume that if you don't get the client, they didn't like you;?

Youll See It When You Believe It - Growing Your Business from the Inside Out
What unspoken message are you sending your clients and customers? Is your personal energy field projecting positive, high vibrational energy or just the opposite? The latter will cost you business--and worse, you won't even realize it. The energy I'm talking about here has been called many things, "being in flow," "in the zone," "locked on", "jazzed", "sending out good vibes," (that last one is for anyone old enough to remember the 60's).
