Yes, in case you were wondering, you did read correctly.
Things you may not know about our 14,000 shirts:
1. They arrive on their very own truck.
2. They are saran wrapped just like your lunch.
3. It took six 7 X 4 pallets to get them all here.
4. They have to be counted..(every single one of them!!)
5. NDesigns will be printing ALL of them… in less than 3 days.
Whoah. That can be a lot to take in. Especially the saran wrap part. Just breathe, you have to take each task as it comes, even if they come at the same time!! For instance, we are putting the finishing touches on our lobby renovation, our new addition to the shop, and now this huge job! We are happiest when we’re busy though. 🙂
So this is just the first of it…. Printing doesn’t seem that bad! They’re only a few thousand in at this point though.
Follow WHO to Home Depot? The thousands and thousands of employees who will be wearing these shirts – that’s who.
SO, you know we got this new folding/bagging machine – right? Well here it is at work! Doesn’t look like much right now… but as the project progressed, the work space be a sea of orange! Not literally.. they were stored in bags to avoid a clutter after being packaged individually.
Ya know… after wanting a folding machine for so long, it seems almost absurd to have just now gotten one! It made this process much more breezy. We’re going to use this for everything now! After all, presence is quite essential.
After a long, hot, week of orange lint collecting in our nostrils and on our foreheads (it was literally everywhere by the end! Cleaning was the funnest.) the staff was rewarded with a nice buffet lunch, courtesy of Jeff. See! He does have a heart 😉 Just kidding… the boss takes great care of all his staff and it’s always a great time to get the work family out together for a meal or just whatever! Sorry we didn’t get a pic of that! You’d probably be able to smell them through the photo though, so consider it a blessing. 😉
That’s all for now, folks.
