Thank you and your team and the production so much for making my shirt a reality. The shirt is epic!  The colors are stunning and It’s exactly what I wanted from this shirt.  People are loving it! I’ll do my best to promote it and try and find more buyers.  I’ll be sure to work with you on the next design which will certainly be coming and I’ll refer you to anyone in the textile biz I come across!

Thank you!

I am writing to thank-you for an incredible experience we had working with your team.

This year, The Medford Invitational Tournament is celebrating our 25th anniversary of providing an amazing baseball experience for children with mental and physical challenges.   Each year in August, we celebrate these special children with a World Series live celebration.   This year also marks the final year we will run this event.   It was so important that we did something special for our team.

The theme is “Aloha MIT” and what better way to thank out staff than a custom made Hawaiian shirt.

When I contacted you team, prior to Covid, their commitment to the customer began and was consistently amazing throughout the whole process.

I received samples and pricing immediately and we appreciated the professionalism of everyone we met at Candor Threads.

As they say, the proof is in the pudding…or at least in the shirt.   Over the 25 years, we have received a lot of promises only not to meet our expectations.

Candor was incredible.   When I received the order, it brought a tear to my eye as I saw that you captured the design and feel of my vision.

The shirts are high quality, true to size, and simply beautiful right down to the custom shirt tag you helped me design.

These shirts will set the tone for a day of honoring some amazing challenged athletes.   I hope you understand that you are now part of the MIT family.

On behalf of the MIT family and our children, thank you all for being an incredible company to work with.

You should all be proud of what you do.

Best Regards,

Ron Giovino

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ties!  They are fabulous!  We have them all ready for our event tomorrow so I can’t wait to see how the school community responds to our new ties.  I’ll let you know how it goes and would 100% recommend your services!  I have 3 boys who attend Fenwick so will be getting ties for all of my boys!  I love the great tags on the back of the ties too.

Thanks for rushing the order and getting them to us on time.  Really appreciate that!

Take care and thanks for everything!
