Applied customer art to mock-up layouts, and supplied print ready material for the manufacturing of custom tents, inflatable dancers, flags, retractable banners and other outdoor advertising products. Reviewing, revising and color correcting art for both local and nationwide clients was a step by step process. Part of which consisted of attaining the correct files from the client through the sales team. Correct, print ready files consisted of the proper resolution for full size production and other factors like DPI output, before placing it onto our existing templates for the corresponding product requested. Keeping a steady work flow for incoming orders while keeping a positive and teamwork oriented attitude was key to my daily code of conduct.

Outfitting sublimated, heat pressed and printed designs that have been featured on the uniforms of both elite and local athletes of MMA was an exciting opportunity. Editing and color correction of all flaws to art provided by customers before printing on the requested rashguard, boardshort or t-shirt was part of my daily routine, as well as management and maintenance of the large in house format printers operating in unison. Ensuring customer service was achieved by incorporating customer requests given by the sales team and providing a flawless product, which led to revamping of the company clothing line right down to the stitching.
