|Zortees is much more than a T-shirt shop. Our innovative design services and state-of-the-art large-format digital imaging system allows us to perform direct-to-garment printing of our unique razorback apparel and other materials (banners, signage, vehicle and advertising magnets, decals, stickers, removable "cling" wall graphics, posters, etc.). This digital printing technology means we can easily print over seams and zippers to create designs far outside the normal boundaries.
We can work our magic on virtually any garment or item made of fabric or material that can accept water, including:
• T-shirt (long and short sleeves – and we can print on the sleeves).
• Hooded sweatshirts ("hoodies").
• Canvas bags.
• Towel wraps.
Digital imaging also means Zortees is able to print any quantity, without the minimum order requirements and "set-up" fees charged by traditional screen printers.
Owners Slader and Michell Agee are veterans of the custom apparel industry and have cultivated close working relationships with area universities and campus organizations, as a licensed vendor. Zortees is licensed to design and sell items bearing the University of Arkansas's logos and symbols, including items for athletics programs.
About Our Name – Zortees
Zortees has its roots in Arkansas Razorbacks pride. Owner Slader Agee tells how Zortees got its name:
"A friend of mine and I were talking about Razorbacks T-shirts and how we always saw the same few types of Razorbacks T-shirt designs. We thought we could come up with better designs and brainstormed different ideas. One of the brainstorming sessions led to the name "Zortees." Being raised in Arkansas and being huge Razorbacks fans, we originally wanted to call the company "Razortees." However, there was a business in Australia that already had the name and the corresponding website domain. We wanted to be totally different, so we decided to drop the letters "R" and "A," and simply call the business "Zortees."
About Our Processes
We try to run an environmentally conscious business, even down to the water-based inks we use in printing. Accordingly, we "upcycle" our test-print shirts into useful bags for customers, which hopefully results in fewer T-shirts winding up in a landfill, somewhere.
