ColDesi Partners with TSC Apparel
ColDesi, Tampa, Fla., a national supplier of apparel decorating equipment, announced a co-marketing agreement with Cincinnati-based TSC Apparel. ColDesi sells and services commercial embroidery equipment, bling machines, direct-to-garment printers and the software and accessories it takes to operate custom apparel businesses. TSC Apparel is a major national wholesale distributor of name brand imprintable apparel and accessories, stocking and sourcing more than 40 brands and thousands of styles of tees, fleece, headwear, sport shirts, outerwear and more.
The two companies are joining together to bring awareness to their two newest product lines: the ProSpangle spangle transfer machine from ColDesi and the new Tultex brand of blanks from TSC.
The ProSpangle is a commercial spangle transfer machine. Spangles are similar to a Hotfix sequin, but with no hole in the middle, so it has significantly more reflectivity or "bling." One of the biggest differences between a spangle transfer and the more common rhinestone transfer is the way they feel. Spangles are perfectly smooth vs. the texture of the rhinestones.
"Every ProSpangle sample we send out is now applied to a Tutlex woman's t-shirt," stated Mark Stephenson, director of marketing for ColDesi. "One of the things that customers can't tell from a picture of a spangle transfer is how soft, and how reflective the holographic material is. It's important that when we send samples out, that they be on the right garment. The cut and material of the Tultex are just what we need to show what really sells profitably in the marketplace. And TSC is just great to work with."
TSC Apparel's Tultex brand offers a full selection of fashion basics from fleece hoods to tees in fine jersey and blend fabrics, all in a variety of styles and colors for men, ladies' and misses' sizes. Tultex blanks ship from all of the TSC warehouses located around the country. The brand's history goes back to 1937 and was acquired by TSC in the 1990's.
