Let’s talk about Digital Transfers onto Performance Fabric. When I was primarily involved with screen printing and direct to garment printing, I was a huge proponent of 100% cotton t-shirts. I really didn’t think I could ever come to love those polyester shirts. But due to companies like Under Armor and others, polyester performance wear has really started to take a hold of me. Now that my days are filled with sublimation inks and vinyl, instead of pretreatment and plastisol, I have been exposed to so much more polyester fabric that I almost feel like I nearly missed the boat. So let’s start off by talking about some of the many different types of garments that are polyester based and the types of material that you can use to decorate those items. Read More
Recently I was asked to do a Skype Chat with A&E Magazine and they had some really great questions laid out for me. It was a lot of fun talking to Cassie and Tom at A&E Magazine. I went ahead and wrote out all of my answers to be ready and I thought I would share my answers with all of you. We did not have time to get to all of these questions in the interview so some of this will be “Bonus” material. Check out all the Q and A items below and at the end check out the video.
As a sales and marketing professional since 1996, I have faced many challenges when it comes to getting past the dreaded voice mail on a sales call. I can receive up to five sales calls from outside vendors in the course of a day. I am continually shocked by the lack of valuable information provided in these messages.

I’m also left feeling like they don’t truly care about my business since they have not done any work at all on trying to find out what my needs are. They just want me to take time from my day to call them back. The tips below will help you in making the most of your sales calls, so you can actually speak with potential customers to build your business.

Notes from Marshall: To use it, I would suggest filling out 2012 & 2013 invoices and total impressions in each of the fields on the spreadsheet. The form has formulas inserted already, so it will auto populate and give you numbers you can use. At the top in light orange I inserted some fake numbers just so others can see how it might look. For $ amount totals I just use the entire invoice amount, taxes, fees and all – as that’s what you are paying.
The importance of using a spreadsheet like this is that it’s a tool to help you gauge whether your efforts are improving. If anything is confusing just let me know.
