The club works by supplying members a distinct Tee shirts each month from a dog rescue someplace in the nation. Members pay $20 a month, and all the continues go straight back to the rescue.
“Once a rescue has agreed to participate and be featured in a particular month, they send us whatever artwork they have. We have our printer in Celina create a mock-up for their approval,”Jim states. “If the rescue has a particular slogan, we try to incorporate that into the shirt as well. If they don’t have any artwork, we can help them with their design.”
Oncethe style is authorized, t-shirts are printed in amounts needed to satisfy the orders. Designs are selected based upon individuality and history of the rescue, along with requirements of the rescue. To guarantee the styles remain distinct, each included Tee shirts is utilized just one time. Once that rescue’s shirt has actually been included, it’s retired from the club permanently.
