Behind the Seams: Let's Get Personal!

April 30, 2013
Hey guys! I told you all a few weeks ago that I'm all about going back to my ROOTS for 2013; First with the One Of A Kind program and now with Personalized Hoodies! I started personalizing hoodies back in 2006, yes that is 7 years ago!!! It feels like yesterday when I set up all the systems on excel and found a factory in Los Angeles to help me build this program. I will never forget the day the Today Show aired the Personalized Hoodies as one of the best gifts to get for the holidays! And then that same month Instyle Magazine featured it in their holiday gift guide.

This was before Facebook fan pages, twitter, instagram, etc, etc so everything was word of mouth! My office phone # was linked to the episode instead of a 1-800 # I had set up to take the influx of the orders...so yes myself and my team became the order takers over the phone and I personally took Amanda Byne's and several other celebrities orders over the phone. It went something like this ..."Hi this is Deesh (at the time Boy Meets Girl® was named my nickname Deesh(see post reference on name change here)) How can I help you." The caller would say, "Hi this is Amanda Byne's and I would like to make a personalized hoodie order." Then I would SCREAM out to my team we got a new order and it is from AMANDA BYNE's and then I would get back on the phone pretending it was not actually me and say "great let me get your Boy/Girl names and mailing address and cc# and we will get this done right away Amanda!." No joke this was a crazy December for me and my team. We got every single order out on time for Christmas for all the orders that came into our office line by mistake! But that is how I roll. And without experience I would not be able to to share with you my journey and be where I am today. So I am proud to bring back Personalization now bigger then EVER!
