T-shirt company ready to print AFC Championship t-shirts

Winter is generally the slow season for Cool Air Creations and Smithfield. But being one of only a few licensed shops to print AFC Championship t-shirts, the company has the plan in place for a potentially hectic weekend.


Ian Day is the automated print shop manager at Cool Air Creations. He says, "Sunday we'll be here for probably about half time and everyone will get together and listen or watch the end of the game and if they win we'll start printing and if they don't we'll go home."


And after a season of nail biting games that game down to the last second, workers know they have to wait for the clock to hit zero before they start printing. Day says, "We always have to wait until the very last second because anything can happen!"


Dozens of boxes are in the shop filled with the t-shirts ready for printing. The only clue they could give away is that the shirts are navy blue, the logo is top secret.


And don't be fooled for knock-offs, these t-shirts are the real deal. This is the same company that printed the official World Series t-shirts.


Day explains, "Official t-shirts are a special design, they'll have little flaws here and there throughout that not a normal person would notice but we will and they come with a foil holograph sticker on every single one."


The company is scheduled to print 6500 t-shirts if and when the pats win on Sunday, the plan is to work through the night to get them finished.
