This week we have quoted for a kit for a Pro Handball Team ... having recently quoted Mersey Tigers a Pro Basketball Club based in Liverpool – the power of the internet!
Our client list is huge; including some of the County's biggest: Norfolk FA, Active Norfolk, Norfolk School Sports, Easton College, City College - the list is long;
Last week we secured the order to produce 1200 printed T-Shirts for the FA's Soccer on the Sands.
On Saturday we ran a full workshop (we are normally open Monday to Friday) with Dan, Jack and Tom finishing three kits for Norfolk County FA – which will be worn by the finalists of the County Cups, three of which are played at Carrow Road.
I am very proud of my team; Harry who heads up 4trophies – this week delivering 500 made to order medals to the South Norfolk Youth League - will pop in over the weekend several times to re-load our two engraving machines. Dan, Jack, Sarah and Tom are all prepared to come back after tea to get the jobs finished on time!
Our in-box is always full of happy emails, quoting opportunities, boxes arriving, jobs to be done, the weird & wonderful to be found, printed swim caps etc and, of course, we get about 500 calls regarding our telephone & electricity charges ... if I had a pound for every canvassing call received I could retire ...
This morning a call at 7.50 from one of the Norwich schools (we supply a few with sports kits, GCSE & A level PE) saying
“Absolutely delighted with the ski trip hoodies; please thank your team”
So; to Sunday, the proverbial day of rest, finds me with a joint of Pork roasting, Aunt Bessie's on standby and clearing my in-box of the usual spam ready for a hot start Monday, ... amongst the usual weekend rubbish a quote request for a new kit from one of our favourite cricket clubs, a sample request from a new workwear client and 2 orders confirmed – Monday suddenly seems even closer!
With Easter looming ... a chance for my team to have a very well deserved break; I hope you all have a very enjoyable break!
