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!

Locker Room Stools and Storage Carts

When spectators pack into a gymnasium or stadium to watch a sporting event, the focus is all on the big game. Each side is amped up to support their team, and the players are ready to deliver. As the action plays out on the field or the court, most people don’t think about what goes on behind the scenes. The folks who are responsible for outfitting the athletic facility have to think about these things, though, and they realize that the locker room figures greatly before, during and after every game. Because of this, choosing good-quality seating such as locker room stools is incredibly important.

Your locker room is like the in-game headquarters for your team. Comfortable locker room stools should be more than an afterthought, as they’ll provide a place for your team to perch as they do mental preparations for the game ahead. Custom-printed stools will give your team a sense of pride as they see their team’s name and logo proudly displayed as they get fired up to face the opposition. During halftime, custom locker room stools provide a place to rest, recharge and—if the going has gotten tough—regroup for the rest of the battle. Post-game, the players will be exhausted and thankful to have good seating options on which to review what went right and what went wrong.

No matter what happens this season, there’s no way you can lose by shopping at Athletic Seating for your team’s locker room stools. Choose a basic stool design with our Model 118. The Model 124 provides a more sporty feel. Folding Time Out locker room stools are portable and give the user the ability to lean back and rest on the carrying handle. All of our stools are made of heavy-duty metal for strength, stability and durability. Customize them any way you choose—in a variety of colors, with your team’s name or logo. There’s no better way to combine comfort and team pride than with our huge selection of seating options.

 

Speaking of a huge selection, if you’ve already purchased what you need from Athletic Seating, you’ll likely need a convenient and attractive way to organize it all. Our double tier storage carts are the perfect solution for athletic chair storage. Wheel them out to collect all of the chairs and then roll them up against a wall or into a closet for quick and easy storage. Double tier storage carts from Athletic Seating come in 7 different models to suit your needs. Choose from ones that hold 36 chairs each, or for the ultimate storage solution, you can find carts that hold a whopping 48 chairs. All of our double tier storage carts are made of durable steel and feature bumpers to protect the finish of your chairs.

Practice and preparation are important in the days and weeks leading up to the big game. During that time and on game day itself, excellent seating is incredibly important. From stools to storage, Athletic Seating has you covered.
