Supply chain issues have impacted all aspects of our lives. If it has a chip in it you’re probably going to have to wait for a while longer. If it were only chips then supply chain woes may be manageable, however, here’s a story of the ridiculous. Maybe you have a similar story?
Hard to Find T-Shirts
Many of you are aware that Q Applied Systems makes a different T-shirt every year for customers who want them. Well, it’s the end of June and the 2022 T-shirt is not expected to be available until mid-July! Why you wonder? Is it the availability of the desired T-shirt brand? Not the T-shirt brand; no that’s only a preference issue. Any long sleeve safety orange shirts with a front pocket were simply impossible to find in the lots needed for our production run. Ultimately Same Day Shirt Printing of Temecula, CA was instructed to gather them on the open market wherever available. Piece by piece the shirts were acquired but lacking a key element.
A Bit of Humor Was Added
Here’s the supply chain woes twist (and humor of it all). The orange safety shirts with a pocket were not available so apparently there is a severe supply chain shortage of orange T-shirt pockets? Not deterred, Q Applied Systems went back to Jeff Trodhal of Jeffsart.com and had him quickly design a pocket “graphically” and the shirts are now ready to be silk screened.
So again, the 2022 T-shirt will have a bit of current humor silk screened into it. Anyone in the HVAC industry has a supply chain woes story – none of them are pretty and often contribute to sleeping disorders and other bad habits. Maybe you want one of Q Applied Systems 2022 T-shirts to ease the stress? Just contact us with you size and we’ll send one out. Of course, this is while supplies last as the shirt supplies are also limited due to supply chain!
As BB King Sang in Chains and Things:
Woke up this morning After another one of those crazy dreams Oh, nothing is going right this morning The whole world is wrong it seems Oh, I guess it's the chain that binds me I can't shake it loose these chains and things
