Rob and Tommy are great guys to work with. They deliver a quality product on time, and they help you find what you need.
— Sharmae Flores, Grimmius Cattle Company
Grimmius Cattle Company is a family owned and operated calf nursery in California’s mid-state region. Under the attention of Grimmius Cattle Company’s 450 employees, baby calves receive specialized care during the first four months of their lives. The company promotes calf health and well-being by focusing on nutrition, creating optimal living conditions, and providing top-notch veterinary care.
Sharmae Flores faced a few challenges when sourcing sweatshirts, jackets, and other promotional items for Grimmius Cattle Company.
In order for a promotional item to bear the Grimmius Cattle Company name, it has to be durable. The company’s employees and clients are always working outside, providing calves with unmatched care. These caretakers demand that their apparel work in even the most demanding conditions. “Generally, we are looking for upscale apparel that will hold up in our environment,” says Sharmae.
Printing or custom embroidery quality can reflect favorably (or unfavorably) on a business. For this reason, Sharmae emphasizes that promotional items must exude quality. “Not only so that your name will be seen,” she says, ”but so that there will be good feelings towards your company.”
Not always available
Choosing jackets or sweatshirts suitable for Grimmius Cattle Company isn’t as easy as just picking something generic from a typical screen printing company catalog. “I used to be a clothing buyer, so I usually have an idea of what I’m looking for,” says Sharmae. “We like to use really nice brands, but so often they’re not available through a traditional screen printer.”
Sharmae trusts Smith Promotions to create promotional items for Grimmius Cattle Company.
High quality — at a good price
Smith Promotions helps Grimmius Cattle Company find durable, high-quality items that meet their needs — without breaking the bank. “They’re good about finding what I want and fitting it into our order budget,’“ says Sharmae. “I’ve given Rob specific brands before that I need to get a hold of at a good price, and he’s worked hard to make it possible.”
Easy to work with
Trust is a hallmark of Sharmae’s relationship with Smith Promotions. “It’s a very easy and stress-free working relationship. If I know that I need something, I don’t hesitate to call or text and say, ‘Hey, this is what I need. What can you do? When can you get it?’ And I know that I can trust that they won’t try to take advantage of me.”
Sharmae’s relationship with Smith Promotions has stood the test of time. In eight years of working together, Sharmae’s experience has been resoundingly positive. “Rob and Tommy are great guys to work with,” she says. “They deliver quality products on time, and they help you find what you need.”
