Seasons Greetings From Crow River Signs
Season Greetings from Crow River Signs!
First and foremost we’d like to thank you for your support over the past year and giving us the opportunity to do business with you. Our letter is a visit from the ghost of Christmas past, present and future.
The Past: This has been another remarkable year for us as we’ve continued to grow and expand. This spring we hired Brandon Bombeck as our full time Graphic Designer. Brandon is a Hutchinson native who received his degree from Bemidji State University. We have added some new equipment this past year as our apparel business has really taken off. This spring we added a heat press and rhinestone’s to our apparel. We can bling out your shirts, hats, bags and more. A brief overview of just a few of projects we completed this year include: a monument sign for Hutchinson Manufacturing, a wrap for Olson Locksmith, logo design for Glencoe Veterinary Clinic and business cards, team apparel for the Hutchison Girls Tennis and Girls Hockey team, team banners for the high school gym and recently the new sign for America’s Fitness Center. Just this past October AJ had the opportunity to travel to Texas to wrap a boat for a customer. If your project didn’t make the list, please know that doesn’t mean it wasn’t important to us.
The Present: Right now we are very busy getting ready for the Minneapolis Boat Show. You will not want to miss the boat we are wrapping for a customer; they are going all out on this brand new 2012 Malibu Wakesetter. This year we are also bringing our boat to the show. We have partnered with Polk Audio, Onlyinboards.com and Captian D’s Upholstery on our UltimateBoatWraps.com boat. The boat will have a rocking audio system; we just signed a contract with Polk Audio to be a dealer and installer for their products with focus on marine audio. Also, we will have a newly re-upholstered interior and some fun after market products. We will also be introducing a new product that we are going to launch at the show called Flex Glo. Flex Glo is a waterproof light system that is installed in the rub rail of a boat, which gives off a luminous glow.
The Future: In November we purchased a second printing press, this one is automated! We are excited to get this up and running soon. Growing and expanding means adding to our staff, just this month we hired Robin Kashuba to come in and do our bookkeeping for us. This will free up Jessica to utilize her background/passion and continue her education in marketing as we continue to strive to be that one stop marketing shop offering marketing plans, consultations, packages, and marketing execution.
We have a great staff, Will and Ashley have been with us for over a year and we hope to continue to grow our business family. With the variety of products and services we offer, no two days are alike. If you’d like to keep up on our latest projects or new products like us on Facebook at Crow River Signs & Ultimate Boat Wraps, or follow us on Twitter @ CrowRiverSigns & @BoatWraps or check out our websites: www.crowriversigns.com or www.ultimateboatwraps.com. We are going to start a newsletter, if you’d like to join our mailing list sign up on our website. Thanks again for the opportunity to do business with you and thank you for your patience as we continue to grow and sometime charter into new territory. Our goal is to try our best to give you the best experience possible as our customer and your feedback is important to us.
Cheers to 2012, May it be a great year for you and your family!
AJ, Jessica, Will, Brandon & Ashley
