The 10th Annual!!! The REGGIE Awards are BACK. The industry awards you have grown to love over the last 10 years. We kick off the REGGIE season by walking the listeners through the categories, discussing them, and sharing memories from the REGGIE winner’s past. Tune in to hear the categories, be part of the discussion, and begin circulating the names that need to be recognized. Plus, we are launching a special bonus section this week at the top of the show, so tune in for a fun new collaboration! Let’s kick off the season with the REGGIE awards to celebrate the decorator’s community and all the loyal #Regulators.
Our regular listeners know this, but 2 Regular Guys are all about garment decorating, a bit of fun, and no rants, lectures, or selling. We are not doing this for our employers but rather for our industry. Since February 2013, The 2 Regular Guys have been the first and the most listened-to garment decorating industry podcast on this planet! We are humbled by all of you tuning in each week. We work hard to bring you information that will make your business better and our industry better. Take a look at our incredible weekly guest list, and you’ll understand where this industry goes for news, interviews, and the heartbeat of garment decorating. Thanks for listening!
If you have anything newsworthy you would like us to share, please email details to email@example.com. Use the subject line “Weekly News”
