Travis Stucky & Mark McBratney of Superior Image KS made the leap to screen printing & embroidery through their deep connections to baseball.
It makes sense. Think about it: who consistently needs custom apparel more than athletes? They’ve grown to gross sales of more than $500k in a wildly short timespan.
Bruce visited their shop in Wichita, Kansas and saw how Printavo has helped them handle a hectic contract printing schedule.
We goofed! They’re called Superior Image KS, not Superior Ink. Sorry about that!
They discussed how they’ve used word of mouth and connections to grow their business, how the i-Image computer-to-screen imaging system has helped them save tons of time, and even how good salespeople with knowledge of the printing process make for easier jobs.
What’s next for 2019? More traditional marketing efforts, a relocation, and really dialing in their process. Oh, and maybe a new M&R press as well
