Featured Customer

Company: Fallen Arrows
Owner: Tito Sands
Year Established:  2013
Decorating Technique: Direct to Garment Apparel
Type of business: Contract & Retail 

Atlanta's Booming Movie and TV Markets Provides A Niche For Custom Made T-shirts.

Tell us a little about who you are and what you do:  
Fallen Arrows is Atlanta’s artist based print shop, we specialize in taking on the tough customers, producing the best in gallery worthy prints on Teeshirts, totes, hats, and pretty much anything else you could want. We operate aDTG Viper as well as a few other smaller Direct to garment machines.

What was your biggest hurdle in getting started?

Organization was pretty difficult in the beginning. Since we take Jobs with no minimum quantities, one off orders would come in and could become very confusing. Big piles of shirts in all different sizes and colors. It would take a good minute to figure out what design to print on which garment. Since then, we’ve started using an ordering and job processing software that keeps everything lined up and in order. Smooth sailing.

How do you decide what Markets to go after?

We’re open to pretty much anyone who wants a high quality print at a fair price. We do specifically target the booming Atlanta movie and tv industry. Our ability to quickly produce in low quantities is a perfect match for most costume departments. We’ve also go after online clothing companies as our Order Fulfillment Services are pretty great for those types of operations.
