We are the green room, a barber & coffee shop located in kitchener ontario!
Presstime is our usual go to for shirts and hats. We really stepped up our most recent merch with some custom stitched tags on our shirts and rope embellishments on our hats. They helped walk us through these extra touches and we couldn’t be more stoked with how everything turned out!
We pull inspiration from the things we enjoy in life! A lot of our staff share similar interests like our love for music, the great outdoors, tattoos and old trucks/bikes. We like making merch that reflects the things we’re excited about. We often collaborate with friends, artists and brands we love!
I started printing merch with presstime probably over 10 years ago back when I just started playing in bands. I’ve always really enjoyed the merchandising part of creative projects and presstime has always helped me bring our visions to life. It started with bands, then my side hustle clothing company and now our business! Presstimes superior customer support and effortless quoting process makes coming back time and time again a no brainer.
It takes time. You’re not going to understand what works and what doesn’t right away, you have to be willing to do some leg work. No one is going to teach you all the tricks of the trade.
My advice to businesses trying to step up their merch game would be to collaborate with artists that you love and enjoy. (not a bad idea to take your clientele into consideration when deciding colours, sizes and graphics) but you can get more creative than just your logo.
We’re a barbershop first but love hosting community events and collaborating with cool individuals and brands. We’re hoping to host a fall makers market in the coming months to help showcase some of our favourite vendors / artists. Check us out on instagram @: thegreenroombarbers and don’t be scared to say hi!
