The Charlotte In 2012 Convention Host Committee has selected BrandRPM, LLC, as the provider of custom-logo apparel for thousands of volunteers supporting the Democratic National Convention taking place next week in Charlotte.
"We are extremely pleased we could partner with a local company to outfit our volunteer staff," said Robyn Hamilton, Senior Advisor for Procurement, Business Relations and Diversity.
"This was a very challenging project, as we needed extremely fast delivery, and we demanded garments made in the USA. Plus we had to stay within a tight budget."
BrandRPM had over 16,000 polo shirts custom-manufactured in the US specifically for the Charlotte In 2012 Convention Host Committee. The garments required multiple types of decoration. BrandRPM screen printed and embroidered all of them in its Monroe, NC, production facility.
"I'm thrilled BrandRPM was able to play a role in hosting the Democratic National Convention," stated BrandRPM CEO Vivienne Anderson. "This was difficult, because there just aren't US-made polo shirts sitting around in warehouses in any quantity. We had to wait for shirts to be produced, and then my team worked around the clock to get them printed, embroidered and delivered in time for the event."
BrandRPM, one of the largest screen printing and embroidery companies in the Southeast, provides custom decorated apparel and promotional products to businesses, schools and organization throughout North America.
The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee is a non-profit, non-partisan organization established by the city of Charlotte to fulfill obligations of the master contract with the Democratic National Convention Committee.
