ne of my fellow editors (OK, it was Impressions
Senior Editor Jamar Laster) recently welcomed his
fi rst child into the world. Because Jamar and his
wife are huge University of Georgia fans, many of the gifts they
received for their baby girl revolved around team colors, logos
and, of course, bulldogs.
It's never too early to get someone turned on to a favorite
team, and a growing spiritwear niche involves the littlest fans.
Heads Up Apparel, a decorator outside Chicago, focuses on
spiritwear for elementary and middle schools, and they are seeing
big success. Read all about them in "Tween Spirit" on page 6.
Another popular element of spiritwear is sparkle. Glenwood,
Ga.-based Team Glitter has you covered there. The apparel
decorator specializes in special-effects screen printing using
gels, glitters and shimmers. The company is featured in "Puttin'
on the Glitz" on page 18.
Looking to expand your shop's spiritwear offerings? Adding
a printer-cutter might be just the ticket for increasing sales and
boosting profits. In "The Cutting Edge" on page 12, fi nd out
how decorators found success (and new customers) adding a
printer-cutter to their shop floor.
It's almost football season at last, and I know Jamar's
little girl is ready for kickoff ! Are you? More importantly,
are your customers?
