The Shop

Sometimes people wonder what it’s like out in the shop. The first thing I tell them it’s hot, very hot sometimes in mid-July. And with the humidity it only gets hotter! This pic was taken on a day that it was about 85 outside. With all the equipment running the temp gets up there. In the winter it can be quite cold without the equipment running warming things up for us. Spring and fall aren’t too bad!!

After we talk about the temp I get to tell them about some of the cool stuff we do and the equipment we get to play with all the time. We have an M&R 6 color, 8 station automatic press and a 4 color, 4 station manual press. We also have an M&R Boomrang gas dryer.




This is just the big stuff!

We also have embroidery equipment, a vinyl cutter and a heat press, not to mention all the equipment that is needed in order to get to the printing part!

Giving Back…Our Foster Dogs

Here at Mr. Tees we like to give back a little bit every now and then. One way we do that is by fostering dogs! We work with a local rescue group, Dog Networking Agents. They find homes for dogs that come from a variety of situations. Some are strays others are owner surrenders. Either way they need a new home and a family of their own. We’ve had 3 fosters find homes since February!

Here is our first foster Stella! She is such a sweet baby. She came into the shelter as a stray. No one knew her story but they knew she was too sweet to leave there by herself. Being a pitty mix AND heart worm positive made her chances of adoption slim. So we agreed to take her as our first foster. We gave her all of her treatments and taught her manners. We showed her love and watched her little personality come to life. After several months of looking for just the right family for her she hit the jackpot and went to her furever home.

She found a great family!!

Here is Lil Miss Fancy Pants! Okay, her name really isn’t Lil’ Miss Fancy Pants. It’s just Fancy, but she was so sassy she deserved the full name! She came into the shelter as an owner surrender. She was terrified and didn’t understand what was going on. So we decided to foster her. It didn’t take long for this lovely senior pup (she is 10 years old!) to find a momma that just loves her to pieces.

Our third foster is Fantastic Mr. Jack, or as I like to call him Jumpin’ Jack Flash. We got him by accident. He just need a place to stay while his original foster mom had to go out of town. At not quite a year old he’s was still a puppy. He bonded with our grand pup so now he’s kinda a foster failure since he’s staying in the family with his new BFF.

Fantastic Mr. Jack

We hope to have many more successful foster dogs in our future.
