I’m not sure you know this, but I was an art director for 14 years.  I can spot talent and creative professionalism a mile away.

That’s why I’m recommending Pixel’sHive.

These great folks are your outsource art team.  They can handle everything.  Whether it is creating a t-shirt design, digitizing an embroidery file, graphic design, animation, even setting up your InkSoft stores for you.

Yeah, I know.  You have an art team.

Are they behind in their work?  Wouldn’t they rather spend time on the fun creative stuff, rather than knocking out that backlog of simple grunt artwork?

The creative team at Pixel’sHive are in Argentina.  What you will find is that their rates are far lower than what your team costs you now.

Imagine spending less money and getting more accomplished?

Shirt Lab Logo

Shirt Lab is a different type of educational event for the apparel decorator.

Our focus is to give you the sales and marketing training that will give you an “unfair advantage” over your competition.

…and by “Unfair”, we mean exactly that. Shirt Lab is about handing over the sales and marketing secrets that you wish you knew.

Can you imagine your success when your shop’s competition becomes irrelevant?

Through demonstration, workbooks, interaction and digging deep, Shirt Lab will push your shop into a better working direction.

It will be challenging.  It will make you think.  This isn’t like a traditional trade show seminar. It will be fun and interactive.  Nobody will be simply sitting and listening. You will be talking, doing and creating.

The events are always on a Saturday. Which means you don’t have to close your shop to attend.

Our instructors are the best in the business. But what’s sets Shirt Lab apart is that we’ll be using selected participant’s information as case studies.

The day is interactive. It’s set up to be creatively stimulating. Thought-provoking.

Our goal is to melt your brain with new ideas.

Shirt Lab will give you the training to stand apart from your competition, increase your sales leads, close more deals, even invent totally new sales channels.

If crushing your sales goals and taking things ten levels from where your shop operates now sounds like a fantastic idea…then Shirt Lab is tailor-made for you.

There is only a limited number of seats. It’s that way for a reason.

We don’t want “everyone”.

Shirt Lab is only for shops that truly want to make a game-changing difference to their business.

Does that sound like you? If so, grab a ticket and get ready for something different.

INKSOFT MARSHALL ATKINSONGranted, I’m a little biased, but using InkSoft Stores could be the single best decision you make for your shop.

I’ve seen up close and personal how the creative folks at InkSoft work.  Their customer service is the absolute best in the industry.  Full discloser – I’ve been helping them create their new InkSoft Production Manager Tool.

Not to mention, I’m the host of the podcast The Big Idea.

One of the questions I’m constantly asked by shop owners is always about getting to the next level”.  This means scaling their business with more orders.  InkSoft Stores allows your shop to become sticky to the customer.  You are able to sell to them 24/7, at a higher rate, and outdistance your shop from your competition.

That won’t happen unless you start.  Click this button and book an InkSoft demo and see how this can add a bunch of new digits to your bank account.

Why struggle any longer with this?

One of the areas that I donate my time is with a fantastic group of forward-thinking, creative, and driven people with a group called the PromoKitchen.

I serve as a “chef” and give back to the promotional marketing industry with this talented team.

PromoKitchen is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization led by professionals in the $20 billion dollar promotional products industry.  PK represents a cross-section of the industry: suppliers, distributors and service providers, men and women, salespeople and business owners, young, and the young-at-heart.

We believe that best practice sharing is a good thing for an industry that is going through rapid change.  We also believe in the power of community and how this industry can improve by establishing stronger connections between us all.

PromoKitchen has two mandates:

  1. Education: We want to advance the industry through thought-provoking discussion on a variety of subjects (marketing, sales, technology, operations, productivity, or creativity).
  2. Mentorship: We want to make the industry better for newer entrants and the idea is to match young superstars with some seasoned members in PromoKitchen.

We invite you to join us in the conversation.
