  • Shut for three and half weeks, but things have turned out positive for orders, with local shops closed when we reopened
  • We saw an increase in inquires and drop ship medical supplies to our customers.
  • Then what normally 5% in small orders started to grow, as small businesses were ordering from home
  • Almost doubled the work force to cope with demand
  • A really big job to do the re-brand, a and get fantastic feedback from all our customers
  • Some businesses when the economy hits a recession will cut back on marketing expense and I think that is wrong
  • We have taking the opportunity to invest in the new logo and drop the little man
  • Invested in more capacity, by about 38%
  • Mainly embroidery also some vinyl prints and heat transfers
  • We are going to put Europe expansion on the back burner with Brexit situation this year
  • We run JIT, we are seeing a slowdown when factories that supply us are having to close and then reopen
  • On track for 35% year growth for now and do great in the UK
  • Can not wait to get out to shows, as people buy from people
  • SUPER POWER: Change the outlook of the general press to be more upbeat about UK Manufacturing, as I see so many success stories.
