Screen Printing Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts T-shirts: Nick Diaz & Coach Terry Gold
As a young guy living in Brooklyn New York myself, I always enjoy printing shirts for fellow Brooklynites, that’s why whenever we screen print t-shirts for Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts I tend to get excited.
Two weeks ago I was contacted by Terry Gold, the owner of Brooklyn MMA, and was informed that he is hosting a seminar for Nick Diaz at his Mixed Martial Arts gym in Brooklyn New York. Truthfully I don’t know too much about MMA and have no idea who Nick Diaz is so I had to do a little research. A little Googling lead me to find that he is a professional MMA fighter signed on with the Ultimate Fighting Championship AKA the UFC. Nick Diaz was raised in Stockton CA and is in the Middleweight Devision. Terry mentioned that him and Nick are interested in designing t-shirts that can be sold and signed at this event, and that’s where me and my team come into play. We are a local screen printing company in Brooklyn New York and we are good at what we do! So right away we went into design mode, along with Terry who actually supplied the design idea. The design he came up with is a simple block font in the front reading “Nick Diaz – 718 – Brooklyn MMA” and in the back “Stockton to Brooklyn”. I thought this was a pretty sweet design, it shows how Nick is representing not only his hometown, but also the good old Brooklyn!
The seminar with Nick Diaz will be held on November 14th at 8PM at Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts, located at 5012 Avenue N, Brooklyn NY 11234 (that’s right.. next door to us). You can find out more information about the seminar by visiting Brooklyn MMA online or calling them via phone. The shirts are currently being sold in their gym so hurry up and purchase yours before they run out!
If you are interested in designing and screen printing some shirts for your upcoming event, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are a Brooklyn screen printing company here to serve our community.
Screen Printing T-Shirts & Hoodies For Companies Around Brooklyn
Brooklyn is an interesting city, there is so much that goes on here and this is why we love that our screen printing shop is located in Brooklyn. Here at our screen printing shop we meet new people and print jobs for various businesses every day, and we love doing so! One of the best benefits to working in Brooklyn is the diversity of the companies we are able to work with, from contractors, to gyms to sports clubs. We have recently completed two jobs, which we are proud of, for the Aviator Sports Club and Harbor Fitness.
Aviator Sports Club is a complex located on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn New York that kids and adults come to play basketball, football, ice hockey, soccer and many other sports. They also have a youth camp during the summer and plenty of after school activities during the week. Growing up, I always wen to The Aviator, whether it was to play basketball, or just ice skate. Even my high school senior day trip started off at The Aviator, which was lots of fun with all of my classmates. The shirts and hoodies we screen printed for them are pretty basic and not what excited me, a logo in white ink on the left chest and a STAFF in block font screen printed on the back. What excited me was that I was able to work with a client that has been in my life since such a young age.
Harbor Fitness, on the other hand, is a gym with multiple locations all over Brooklyn. They have locations inPark Slope, Marine Park, Bay Ridge and Mill Basin and are the new leaders in the gym industry. They are celebrating their 25 year anniversary this year which calls for some new custom printed hoodies. We recently screen printed for them hoodies and sweatshirts with a cool 25 year anniversary Harbor Fitness logo on front and an American Flag/Barbell combination on back. As you can see in the image to the right, this is a pretty sweet hoodie and to be honest I would wear it myself. What’s cool about screen printing for Harbor Fitness is that they are located in Brooklyn and all of their merchandise reflects that. Just like our catchphrase is “Brooklyn Screen Printing” their’s is “Brooklyn’s Gym” – representing the Brooklyn borough.
We love to print new jobs and meet new clients day to day, so if you are from Brooklyn and searching online for “screen printing company near me“. Stop searching, you arrived to the right place. our friendly staff and experienced screen printers are here to get the job done for you in a timely manner. Customers service, high quality printing and quick turn around time is our priority!
Screen Printing Trends: Keeping Up
Screen printing must evolve with the times and the location of your business. So keeping up with popular trends is a great way to make yourself noticed. The only challenge is that no one really knows what will become trendy. It’s always a good idea to look around your area and to look at what people are wearing. As a designer it is a great way to come up with new ideas and to see what new techniques others are utilizing.
Foil in printing had become very popular and we stocked up on a lot of gold and silver foil. Then just as suddenly Puff ink became the new popular thing. A trendy Screen printer can attract local business very well. Style is very important to gaining a repeat customer. When you have a customer who returns to get something new being able to help them to get something Screen printed that is more modern makes a great impression on you as a creative.
Trends can also just be useful time saving things you pick up from other screen printers. That is why it is also good to have an establish network around you. The most helpful thing to any Screen printer is the network. There are times of the year where you will have a slowdown in customers. While ideally that should not be the case, it is. But a strong network is helpful in keeping you up to date with what is new. There may be a new ink that performs cleaner and stronger then what you already have. It helps credibility of your business when you have a walk-in or an over the phone conversation and you are asked about a certain garment or technique, and you are better able to explain it to that customer.
