We have actually made some decent progress in sourcing high quality gear. I just want any one of our products to be finished asap so we can actually sell you stuff you want!
1) Appliques are with a new local printer. Waiting for his quotes.
2) Metal desk flames (a flame made out of metal that can sit on your desk) is being scoped out wiht the same printer.
3) We have gone through 4 rounds of revisions with our hat provider. We are trying a new offset flame design now that we should get an image of emailed to us shortly.
4) We are working with one of the top printers in Canada to do shirts/hoodies. It's taking much longer than expected - but we are still making progress. It looks like our design needs 8 screens! This is not easy to print. So we either change our design - or be patient as they work through how to cure the ink between colors for such a low amount of shirts.
This has not been a fun process for anyone. I had no idea how hard it is to produce good quality custom stuff.
We are battling through it though.
