yes I've been meaning to give an update on the store. It has taken me a while in getting the business opened ( paperwork, cpa's, finding suppliers, etc. Also it a took a while to contact the Dept of the Navy in the pentagon to get the permission to do Navy t-shirts. All the good stuff in starting a business. The store will offer Navy Dads logo items and Navy items with phrases I've come up with. The hardest obstacle was finding a graphic designer to do the art work. I have finally found a great designer that is working on the designs. I'm shooting for an opening date of July 1 or earlier. The store will open with about 5 different t-shirt designs, koozies, coffee cups, mouse pads, the Navy flag, polo shirt, hats, visors, and few other things.
I will not be able to open the store with all the items people have suggested but will try to get as many as I can. If the store go's well, then more products will constantly be added to the store. For instance my wife wants to do a Navy doormat because we never found one that we liked from when our son enlisted a year ago, so she wants to make one. The most time consuming obstacle is to find company's ( suppliers ) that have what we want. It's like finding a needle in a haystack.
So everything is looking positive and most of the hard work has been done. Now it's time to buy the products and have them printed. So it has gone from everything being chaotic to looking like everything is finally falling into place. I want to apologize to everyone for it taking so long but it looks like it will be up and running soon.
Sir I have a question???? what kind of doormats is your wife looking for? I know of a website that has a 20"x30" for $18.99. This might be the cheapest that she will be able to find them for. i will add the link at the end of you have any interest at all. I purchased 2 of these after my son left for boot camp (one for me and one for daughter-in-law) so far they are holding up pretty well. Pass this along to Cindy or check it out yourself.
