Did you know only about 3% of our apparel today is manufactured in the USA? This stands in stark contrast from just 50 years ago when 90% of our clothing was made here. Jen and Stephen Imig, founders of the blog Stars and Stripes Collective, talk the importance of Buying American, its environmental and economical benefits, and how it doesn’t have to be as expensive or inconvenient as Americans think. Join us as we start the conversation about where the products Americans buy are made and why it matters.
Boathouse has passion for sublimation (digital printing). We invested in sublimation very early in order to provide lighter, faster & better uniforms and performance gear. In addition, sublimation allows us to expand our custom ability dramatically, essentially allowing unlimited design and color. It's a great process used to create vibrant, full color, all-over prints and unlike screenprinting, the numbers and graphics will never wear off! Since the color remains strong after extensive washing it’s the ideal process for sportswear and school clothing that’s going to get beat up and dirty. But what exactly is sublimation, how is it done, and why does Boathouse have such passion for it?
