PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rush Order Tees, a PrintFly company, is now an official partner of the Philadelphia 76ers and will print t-shirts for the organization. The multi-year deal means Sixers t-shirts will be printed in Philadelphia by Philadelphians at a Philadelphia-based company.
“With this new partnership, Philadelphia 76ers promotional t-shirts will be printed with pride by Sixers fans,” said Michael Nemeroff, Founder and CEO of PrintFly. “Our company is full of die-hard Philly sports fans, which makes us especially proud to bring our unmatched quality, capacity, and reliability to the Sixers organization.”
The partnership includes a mix of in-game and social media promotions and fan engagement initiatives. Rush Order Tees will present a t-shirt toss during the first half at all regular-season Sixers home games. In addition, the company will be the presenting partner of a t-shirt design contest and giveaway, the first of three social media promotions. Beginning in early 2017, fans can enter the contest at RushOrderTees.com, and the winning design will be featured on 2,500 t-shirts distributed to fans prior to a future Sixers game at the team’s home arena.
The official partnership grew out of an existing relationship between the two companies. When the Sixers needed to place a significant promotional t-shirt order, the team contacted Rush Order Tees based on the company’s history of consistency and quality.
“We needed a partner that could produce quality shirts at the professional team level, even with a short turnaround time,” said Chad Biggs, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Activation for the Philadelphia 76ers. “Rush Order Tees has never let us down, and with this official partnership in place, we are confident our organization will continue to offer fans the highest quality promotional t-shirts.”
PrintFly has sprouted in recent years, experiencing more than 50 percent growth within the past 12 months, and the Sixers partnership is only the latest milestone. It’s added more than 85 new positions so far in 2016, bringing its staff to 210 professionals, and it recently purchased and moved into a new 65,000-square-foot facility in Northeast Philadelphia. This growth comes as PrintFly cements a reputation for speed and quality, fulfilling orders as small as a single custom garment to upwards of tens of thousands, delivered on time and with the highest quality.
