The new catalog is out and that means it’s time for our website to get an update as well. We’ve been working hard to turn our website into a resource that can make our customers lives easier. We’ve added a lot of new features to our site including:
- An animated and interactive clothesline showing off our products and new designs.
- A place where you can see some cute kids model our even cuter new products.
- A careers section for talented people interested in working for our company.
- A download-able PDF version of our new catalog and size chart.
Our primary focus was to make the new site a great way for us to communicate with our customers and for them to communicate with us as well. As a leader in the children’s licensed collegiate apparel industry, we understand the value of good communication.
We’ve also added a new graphic library for our customers to browse through with hundreds of graphics to choose from. If you are an independently operated bookstore and have not done so yet, sign-up! The graphic library also provides the ability for our customers to provide feedback to us on our designs. So tell us what you think - we really value your opinion.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded the palette of available colors for our Long Sleeve Tee (Style #20809/30809). We’ve added Cardinal, Purple, and Black to the roster of color choices for the toddler and youth versions, plus Pink Crush in the toddler version. So now you have 9 fantastic colors to choose from in toddler, 8 in youth. All colors are available immediately, and we have great stock in all of them to provide you with the service you need and expect.
Just in time for summer, we bring you the latest addition to our line of sport-inspired toddler tees, the Striker Tee.
The Striker Tee takes its styling cues, and its name, from the world of soccer. The striker position has just one job...to score on every single offensive drive the team makes. In other words, the striker is fairly intense. Our Striker Tee lives up to that legacy by adding unique styling and school color combinations to the list of standard College Kids features like double-needle stitching, superior fit and comfort, and great durability. It’s the perfect attire for the small, but intense, members of your school’s fan base.
Specifically, a super cute gift box. We’re proud to introduce you to our very first gift set, the Newbie Pack!
The Newbie Pack features a warming cap, bib, and blanket, all neatly folded and lovingly packaged in a new cupcake-style gift box. It’s the perfect new baby gift. You don’t have to worry about sizing because everything in it is one-size-fits-all. You don’t even need to wrap it, because the box is designed to be gift-ready. It even has a gift tag printed right on it!
The Newbie Pack marks our first foray into the world of digital direct-to-garment printing which allows us to come up with some very unique graphic looks. Stuff that we wouldn’t be able to produce on our traditional press equipment. But here’s the really cool part...it also allows us to offer minimums of only 12 Newbie Packs per order! The Newbie Pack is the perfect grab-and-go gift for your customers, and it’s the perfect item to expand your children’s department revenues because the investment is so low. At minimums of 12, almost anyone can give this a try in their store. Be sure to place it in multiple locations to pick up impulse purchases. Put some in the infant apparel section near our bodysuits. Place some in the gift section of the store. And be sure to place a couple at the check out for that last minute gift idea.
Did we mention that we’ve also got some great point-of-sale materials available to help you promote the Newbie Pack at retail, and it’s available to you at no additional cost? Sweet deal, I know.
The Newbie Pack is available today, and you can choose one of five unique graphic packages that are designed to highlight the unique capabilities of digital direct-to-garment printing.
