I could not be more impressed with the quality of work and the phenomenal customer service provided by Bluewater Graphics and Apparel. Our gift line at the Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming, Inc. (SCYAP) involves creating one of a kind gifts for such high profile events as the 2007 Juno Awards Show gifts and the World Junior International Hockey Championships.
These projects involved silk screening extremely complex artwork and utilizing unique mediums such as leather. The art work that was silk screened onto the leather scrolls for the 1,300 Canadian musicians attending the 2007 Junos was highly intricate, involved several colours, and had to be matched to custom dyed leather. This was definitely not a project for the faint of heart! I was completely blown away by the results, and so were the recipients.
When creating the handmade leather duffel bags for the World Junior International Hockey Championships, Bluewater was the only company we would entrust for embroidering these special, one of a kind designs. They consistently exceed every expectation we have. (And we are picky!)
Gary, Barb and Allen always have time for us, no matter how busy they are, and make us feel welcome. I love the cozy family atmosphere in their shop, which provides a welcome respite from larger, less personal environments. They cherfully tackle both large and small scale projects with enthusiasm, professionalism and integrity. Bluewater has a way of taking the most diffficult projects and with their special wizardry, making it all seem easy and "do -able". There is no doubt in my mind that we could not produce the quality designs we are known for without the dedication, skill and expertise of the team at Bluewater Graphics and Apparel.
Barb and Gary go well above and beyond the norm not only through the work they produce, but also by taking the time to understand the work that we do with youth, and why it matters.
They even attended our Urban Canvas Project graduation ceremonies and provided an opportunity for work experience for a young person in our program, which meant the world to us.
Hands down, Bluewater is the best game in town. We treasure not only the quality of work they offer, but also, our special relationship with this outstanding company.
