 Sales Forecasts for 2016

  • Let’s start by having you tell our listeners about Wearables magazine.
  • How Wearables gathered the information for the Sales Forecasting survey.
  • In the article, you mention using your suppliers as decorators. That really surprised me, but it makes sense in the Ad Specialty world. Tell us a little more about that.
  • What did your survey say about profit margins on T-shirts?
  • You discuss adding embroidery to your business. Tell our listeners about the suggestions you make. 
  • Tell us about what the article describes as wearable tech. 
  • I thought the breakdown of decorations methods was very interesting. Would you go through some of these numbers for our listeners?
  • Tell our listeners where they can find you and Wearables.
