Fine Designs Rode to My Rescue
Let me begin by saying that one of the worst parts about running a major meet is the tee shirt business – ordering, picking up or scheduling delivery, sizing, leftovers, shortages, etc. How many times did I say to myself, “Did I get enough mediums”. And worse yet was being left with extras and telling my wife that I’d stick them in a closet for a year! How many times did I say to myself, “Did I get enough mediums”.

As the Meet Director of one of the area’s largest sporting events, the Glenn D. Loucks Games, I was always nervous about ordering tee shirts. How many were too many and how many were too few? Somehow, every year, those questions loomed over my already worry-filled head, which was filled with thoughts of other items like entries, weather, equipment, food, officials and so many others.
Nothing else came close to the success we are having with Fine Designs.
Each year I would hear statements from the volunteers like, “Are there any additional mediums?”. Or, “Next year, order more smalls”. Or, “We ran out of blues again this year”. Coupled with the time consuming matter of picking up the shirts or coordinating a delivery time, tee shirts became an overriding burden.
But like knights on horses, the Fine Designs team rode to my rescue. During a meeting of introduction with their representative Naomi Novik, I realized the potential relief that they were offering. I fired off questions:
- “Let me get this straight,” I said, “I don’t have to order sizes or colors?
- You custom print them there at the meet?
- I don’t have to pick them up?
- I won’t have to take home two dozen or more unsold items and store them in my closet until next year’s meet?
- Besides tee shirts, you offer other apparel items as well?
- AND, once the meet is over, in a few days we will receive a check from you?”
At the next committee meeting I begged my colleagues to give Fine Designs a chance. After all, they were offering the opportunity to take shirts off my back! Ever since, it’s been a great working relationship, one that I value. I highly recommend their services.
THE BEST PART was that I didn’t have to do anything.
Fine Designs takes care of all of that. They were polite, on time and had our interests in mind. Every time I looked over at their concession stand, there was a long line. THE BEST PART was that I didn’t have to do anything. Well, maybe better was the fact that within a week of the meet I received a check from them!!! That was sweet.
