"You Make Apparel?" - Part 1

The most common phrase we hear when our customers pick up their signage is "you make apparel?" The funny thing is, the most common phrase we hear when our customers pick up their apparel is "you make signs?" We are starting another blog series where we will take you through all the fun things we create for our loyal customers at ISTS!


Let's start with apparel! About 65% of our business is apparel. We create online stores for customers - mostly businesses and schools. (We also do lots of fundraisers.) We pride ourselves in making it easy for our customers to pick from the many high-quality items we offer and provide great customer service. We make the process easy while also providing you with what you want! (See what our customers have to say at the end of this blog post!)

At ISTS, we use screen-print transfers for 99% of our clothing orders. (We also do heat transfer cut vinyl and heat transfer printable vinyl when necessary for a project!) Screen print transfers are screen-print ink printed onto paper instead of directly to the garment. We press the screens on our garments for quality apparel pieces that last. Screen print transfers are a great tool for the many businesses we work with because we don't have a set-up fee for new runs of apparel. When businesses hire new employees, we can get a few pieces ready very quickly for them. Unlike large screen-print companies, we don't have to go through the screen cleaning and burning process, so our minimums can be low for our repeat customers! See the process here.

“I cannot say enough great things about I Saw The Sign!  Chelsea and her team do a fantastic job from start to finish on every project they do for me. Chelsea just always goes above and beyond to make sure my needs are met as a customer while still delivering a great product at the end of the day! I highly recommend them for any of your printing and design needs!” - Kayla McCarthy, BURN Barre and Studio Owner in Newell, Iowa

"I love working with I Saw The Sign! They are very accommodating for what we need in our online stores for our employees. They make the process very easy and we have our items before we know it! We order through them every couple of months and they're always up for my new ideas." - Melea Raveling, Methodist Manor in Storm Lake, Iowa
