Sparkle Plenty Designs cooked up some gorgeous rhinestone bling for this happy customer, and we’re “thrilled to the claws” to feature them in the Sparkle Spotlight!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your organization/business:
The Lobster Trap has been the leader in quality, fresh seafood on Cape Cod for more than 40 years. The Lobster Trap is a family-friendly restaurant and fish market located on the Back River in Monument Beach on pristine Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Our humble beginnings lie in the tiny fish market we opened in the late 1960′s. In 1976, we expanded to include a fish-n-chips restaurant. Today, our business continues to grow, thanks to our customers, who revisit us time and again to enjoy our commitment to quality products and great service. Visiting the Lobster Trap is a true Cape Cod experience. We are honored to receive Best of Boston “Clam Shack, Cape Cod” from Boston Magazine.
What made you decide to do bling shirts?
I have always had a love for sparkly things, from belts and earrings to boots and key chains…it must have bling! I thought it would be a great idea to add some bling to our t-shirt collection, and it was a huge hit. We already have t-shirts, polo shirts, and sweatshirts with our company’s logo, but the bling shirts truly stand out above the rest. I had ordered 15 iron on logos from Sparkle Plenty and within a week they were gone– I had made shirts for friends and family and I quickly had to email Sparkle Plenty Designs for another order because customers wanted more!
When you first saw your shirts, what did you think?
I was completely blown away at the quality and amount of detail that went into each logo. They are so easy to iron on, and quickly transform any shirt to a whole new spectrum of fun. The sparkles capture the right amount of light and create the perfect amount of shine.
Please share feedback you’ve received:
My customers and employees love the shirts I have created. They look best on dark fabric, since the lobster is red, but I can’t wait to experiment with new fabrics such as canvas. Customers have said that the idea is great, and they can’t wait to have one of their own. Needless to say, I will be busy ironing! (NOTE FROM SPARKLE PLENTY: Besides creating the entire job in-house, we also sell just the heat transfers that customers can press onto their garments if desired.
Would you recommend doing bling to anyone else?
Absolutely, and I already have and will continue doing so.
Wonderful! Now we are totally craving you-know-what!
