Ypsi-Arbor American Little League

Heikk’s congratulates the Ypsi-Arbor American Little League on its 2018 opening day at Recreation Park in Ypsilanti.   The league has grown to nearly 200 players, 16 teams, with many coaches, sponsors and supporters.  It is also the oldest formal Little League in the State of Michigan and was the first Little League to have a young lady play on a team.   Heikk’s works with the League on their uniforms and spirit wear.  We also help to create their newest logos a few years a go.  The YALL is another example of Ypsilanti at its finest!!!

Spirit Wear From Heikk’s

If you have a team then you will need spirit wear to support that team, including tees, hats, hoodies and more for the team to wear day to day.  But more than for the team, the parents and family want to wear gear to support your team, so let Heikk’s work with you to put together a collection of products to meet these needs.   A spirit wear collection can include …

***  Short-sleeve and long-sleeve t-shirts in team colors
***  V-neck tees for the moms with sparkle designs
***  Crew neck or hooded sweatshirts (I always loved my team hoodie!)
***  A baseball cap or knit hat.   Dads needs a team hat!
***  Sweatpants to go with the hoodies or crews
***  A blanket to help the keep the moms warm at the games
***  Coffee cups, buttons, license plate holders

We have much more and we are quite clever so give us a call for your spirit wear needs!

Comfy Lightweight 1/4 Zip Pullovers

Now that the weather is getting a bit warmer, we have a very comfy lightweight 1/4 zip pullover for men and women that works great inside or for layering underneath outside.  And soon, it will be perfect for early summer nights.  The Sport-Tek ST850 men’s and the LST850 women’s, are a 90% polyester, 10% spandex jersey with a soft brush backing and moisture control for year-round comfort.  They come in twelve colors including a very Michigan Navy and a nice Eastern Michigan Green..  They also come in white for maximum decorating flexibility.  And note that the ladies version has thumb holes!!!   My closet has the navy with a nice-sized maize Block M on it!!!

Next Level Tri-Blend Scoop Neck Ladies Tees

The ladies in the shop are quite excited about the Next Level scoop-neck short sleeve (NL6730) and long sleeve (NL6731) tees.  They are reported to be very soft and comfortable (and flattering) and they come in a variety of pleasing colors, including the traditional black, navy, red and royal.  Sandy loves the purple rush and military green while I think the vintage turquoise is quite nice.  These ladies shirts are a light weight 4.3oz, 50% polyester, 25% combed ringspun cotton and 25% rayon jersey … just a very nice hand to them. So if there is a need for flattering, comfortable ladies tees, these will more than do the job!

New Catalog Added

We just added a second catalog link on our Catalogs page which takes you to another wonderful collection of products which include Devon & Jones, Harriton, Next Level, Bella and much more!

Heikk’s Active in the Ypsi Community

For the past seven years, Owner Dave Heikkinen has been coordinating a radio slot with Lucy Ann Lance on AM1290 WLBY which promotes all thing Ypsilanti.  The weekly show airs at about 9:25AM every Friday morning.  Dave brings businesses, organizations, schools, officials and interesting people to get their Ypsi story told.  Just last week, Dave brought on the Ypsi High School First Robotics Team head by Scott Heister.   Next weeks Concentrate is lined up followed by Massage Mechanics.  It’s a wonderful way to get to know people and another positive Ypsi story gets on the air.

A Favorite Sport-Wick Jacket

The Sport-Tek Sport-Wick Full-Zip Jacket has proven to be one of our customer favorites.  Priced around $38.00 with a typical left chest embroidered logo, it comes in men’s and women’s sizes up to 4XL.  And it embroiders beautifully.  It is 100% polyester, soft and just nice to wear.   It comes in a rich Michigan navy, white, black, red, smoke gray and royal blue.  It good for layering and is perfect for spring, fall and cool summer nights.  In our first catalog it is called the ST241 men’s and LST241 women’s.

We Can Extend a Design to a Coffee Cup

Pictured below, we can take a set of logos and put them with additional messaging on to a coffee cup.  Our cup sublimation technique allows for full color graphics and a wrap-around print, nearly from one side of the handle around to the other side.  We make these cups one at a time so we accept small to larger orders.  We can have a lot of fun working on cups with you, so consider this as an extension of what you can offer your team or business associates or clients!

Living Lavish Store Opens

One of our partners, Living Lavish, just opened a store front in the Briarwood Mall.  We started working with them back in 2015 when they developed their brand and look while still in High School.  And now they have their first store front with many of the items printed here at Heikk’s.

The Heikk’s Blog is now in gear with this being the second post.  We have also added pages with contact information, a page with a catalog link to our best vendor, a page with some information ABOUT Heikk’s, and a page on Artwork.  Please take a look and if you have feedback, please pass it along!
