Back to School!

Back to School Is Almost Here: Is Your Schools Athletic Seating Ready for the Season?

 

It hardly seems possible, but summertime is ending. As the cookouts and days in the surf come to an end, people are folding up the lawn chairs and shaking the sand off of the beach chairs – putting them away until next season.

For school administrators, though, the season is just gearing up. With back to school just around the corner, organizations at all levels of the educational world are shining floors, stocking up on books, and getting ready for an influx of students.

They’re also prepping for the crowds that will soon hit campus gymnasiums and sports facilities. This requires more than just cleaning things up and giving them a fresh coat of paint. It also requires shiny new equipment – from balls and uniforms to scoring tables and athletic seating that’s customized for their teams.

 

Why Customized Seating Matters

 

Next to what’s happening on the court, what happens in the first few rows of any sports arena matters most. That’s why uncomfortable, run-of-the mill folding chairs won’t do.

For one, this is where your players – the stars of your team – will rest and rev up in between plays. This year, bring them back and show them love with comfortable, padded seating. The lightweight Model 2617 Chair is portable and durable, with a one-inch padded seat cushion. For additional comfort, our Model 3400 Chair has three inches of seat padding.

 

The padding level isn’t the only option that’s customizable, however. Choose from a variety of vinyl colors, frame colors, and print locations to create a front-row lineup of folding chairs that promote your team spirit in style. We’ll screen print your team’s name, logo, or both on the back and/or seat of the chair.

Booster Clubs and Beyond

 

Our customized Sideline Chairs and Slip Covers are good for more than providing reserved seating for your players. They’re also ideal for VIP seating for loyal booster club members, sponsors, or others who work hard to support your team.

 

Behind the scenes, sturdy and comfortable Time Out Stools and Model 124 Stools keep your team cool and ready to go while they’re strategizing in the locker room. They’re fully customizable, as well, showing your team pride both on the court and off.

 

Is Your Team Ready for Back to School?

 

Your teams have probably been training to get prepped for the season. Meanwhile, your gymnasium, arena, or sports facility has likely been receiving paint, repairs, and updates to make it look like new. Have you put off placing an order for custom seating? If so, it’s not too late. Contact the team at Athletic Seating and let us get started on your order right away.

 

With over 30 years of experience in creating custom logo seating, we’ll walk you through the process to ensure that you get exactly what you need – and receive it in time for the start of the sports season. We understand that when it comes to the excitement of back to school, there’s more to the equation than reading, writing, and arithmetic!

Sideline Chairs

Heres the Secret to Sleek, Attractive Comfort at Your Next Event

 

When it’s game day, you want everything to be perfect. Your team is well-trained and pumped up. Your sports facility is clean and ready to go. When your team and their opponents step onto the court, you want your team pride coming at them from every direction with signs, banners, and custom-printed chairs.

Our KI-1 Chairs are the perfect solution to give your team and VIP guests a front-row view of the game. They’re attractive and incredibly comfortable, with a luxe one-inch padded seat and backrest.
Whats KI?

 

The “KI” in our KI-1 Chairs stands for Krueger Industries, the leader in manufacturing furniture for commercial facilities. From hospitals to colleges, government facilities to sports facilities, they’ve specialized in creating durable, stylish furniture for nearly a century.

Krueger Industries made its very first folding chair in 1941. At the time, there were very few options for stackable, foldable seating. Because steel was in short supply during the height of World War II, the company used scrap materials to manufacture their seating. Krueger continues this eco-conscious mentality today, always looking for ways to innovate and avoid waste.

The Best in Comfort Meets the Best in Customization

 

We’re proud to source our KI-1 Chairs from Krueger. We know that every KI Chair that ki-chair-500x500we ship to a customer will be well-made, incredibly comfortable, and built to last.

Before those chairs leave our facility, though, we give customers the opportunity to customize them in a number of ways. First, they can choose from KI-1 Chairs in a variety of frame colors, from basic black to navy blue, red, or more. Next, we offer a wide variety of vinyl colors to suit your team perfectly.

 

Finally, Athletic Seating provides the ultimate in customization: screen printing your choice of logo or text on either the seat, backrest, or both.

Why Screen Printing?

When it comes to customizing athletic furniture, we believe in doing it the old-fashioned way. While digital printing may be faster, our screen-printed designs are more vibrant and last much longer. Whether you’re customizing KI-1 Chairs or locker room stools, screen printing means that your design will stand out loud and clear.

You don’t have to print logos on your chairs and stools, of course. We offer all of our seating options in plain vinyl, as well. As a matter of fact, for choices like our KI-1 Chairs, there is no minimum purchase required if you’re ordering them blank. (Get in touch with us to check on minimum purchase requirements for other unprinted merchandise.)

Quality and Customer Service

 

For over three decades, Athletic Seating has worked to deliver the best in customized folding chairs, stools, and other sports facility seating and accessories. We do all of our printing in-house and all of our products are manufactured in the United States.

Our exclusive Logo Printing vs. Digital Printing

Link

 

 

On our blog, we spend a lot of time highlighting our amazing custom products that allow athletic teams everywhere to show their team pride while ensuring that their players, coaches, and VIPs are all able to watch events in comfort and style. Athletic organizations everywhere have discovered our attractive and durable sideline chairs, time out stools, and other great seating options.

 

One thing we’ve only briefly brushed upon before now is the difference between our printing process and that used by other athletic chair dealers. We take pride in creating custom products that feature vivid, bright logos and lettering. Our designs really stand out – something that’s important in a bustling gym or sports arena. Meanwhile, custom designs by other companies simply fall flat.

 

What makes our printing technique so different? At Athletic Seating, we do all of our printing in-house. We never send our merchandise out for printing. We opt to use traditional screen printing techniques. This sets us apart from companies who have switched to digital printing out of convenience.

For those who are unfamiliar with screen printing versus digital printing, here’s a quick primer. When we screen print a custom basketball chair for a customer, we create stencils for their design. Using these stencils (otherwise known as screens), we apply the ink to the surface of the chair. The process uses one stencil per color until the entire design is complete.

Digital printing, meanwhile, transfers your design through a computer which assists as the design is printed on the surface of the chair or stool. While digital printing sounds like the faster, more modern option, it results in a dull, matte finish that’s underwhelming and disappointing. It’s also harder for certain colors of digital ink to show up on darker backgrounds because the ink layers are more thin.

 

That’s why we opt to do it the old-fashioned way. Screen printing is ideal for high-vibrancy designs, as the ink is applied in thicker layers. This makes the colors brighter and gives your basketball chairs a glossier, laminated look than digital printing can offer. In our experience, screen printing packs a more powerful punch, is more versatile, and is an all-around better option.

An additional plus for screen printing is that it’s more cost-effective for a large number of printed items. This helps lower the cost of outfitting your gym with a brand-new lineup of personalized sideline chairs. Not ready to make an investment in high-quality team seating? No worries! We also screen print customized slip covers and eye-catching sponsor decals that are quickly removable after the game.

 

No matter which items you choose, our screen printing technique means that each design is just as durable  as the product on which it’s printed. We’ve been customizing athletic seating for over 30 years and are proud that all of our products are made right here in the United States.

Have questions about our printing techniques or any of our products? Don’t hesitate to contact us; we’ll be glad to help!

Shout Your Team Pride with Personalized Folding Chairs

 3400-FL-Mets-logo-copy-750x1024
At every sports game, folding chairs sit in rows in front of the bleachers. This is where your team, your coaches, and your VIP guests will sit. Besides the field or court, it’s also the area that will draw the most attention. Don’t miss your chance to wow everyone who sets foot inside your gym or stadium. The best way to promote your team pride is with personalized folding chairs.

Row up on row of regular metal folding chairs sends the wrong message to the home team as well as your visiting opponents. They’re impersonal and look…well, they just look blah. For each and every big game, bring in your team colors. Show off your team logo. Shout your team spirit by proudly displaying team folding chairs.

 

In addition to customizing your chairs to proclaim your team’s name and colors, don’t forget to honor your sponsors or important guests. Give them a shout out by adding sponsor decals to the back of a number of your chairs. Customize each decal with the company’s logo to send them a clear thanks for supporting your team.

Another problem with regular folding chairs? They’re incredibly uncomfortable. Make people sit on them for an hour or so and they’ll be shifting and squirming around. That’s no way to treat important guests, and it’s certainly no way to thank your valuable athletes.

 

Personalized folding chairs from Athletic Seating are padded and extremely comfortable. Your guests will be able to watch the game in comfortable style. In addition to this, your athletes will be able to relax and refresh in the kind of seating they deserve after giving it their all on the field.

 

Sideline seating isn’t the only thing that matters, either. Team folding chairs are a great way to finish out your locker room, as well. When your players are strategizing during halftime, rehydrating, and regrouping, let them relax in chairs that are padded and personalized.

On the field or court and off, it’s important to remember that the players aren’t the only ones who are working hard. A personalized chair is a great way for a team to express thanks to their coach. Choose a folding director’s chair customized with your coach’s name and team logo. It’s comfortable and portable—the perfect way for the coach to rest in the rare moments when he’s not on his feet, shouting at players on-field. Big League or Little League, any coach will appreciate the gift of a personalized chair.

 

Storing all of these chairs is no problem at all. They can be stashed away in a jiffy with a convenient double tier storage cart. Choose one that holds 36 or 48 chairs. Simply fold the chairs and hang them up before rolling the entire cart away for storage. This will help keep your chairs in great shape for years to come.

Athletic Seating has been a proud manufacturer of custom chairs and stools for over 30 years. We stand behind our products, all of which are made and customized right here in the USA. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to talk about what we can create for your team!
