This is one cool ass trike for an awesome company. Say hello to the Happy Stitches Embroidery Build. We were contacted by the owner of Happy Stiches Embroidery asking us if we were in the market for some promotional items like ball cap’s and T-shirts. After we got to talking we decided that a trade was in order to promote both business’s. From there the fun began on the Happy Stitches Embroidery Build.
We started with the biggest frame we had, the R1 (26″) model. Happy Stitches wanted something sexy and cool, something that didn’t detract from their products but got the attention of future customers. We both decided on the Illusion Royal Blue with yellow accents. I new I’d have to do something special for this build so rather than just slapping the same old logos on the trike I decided to do a custom layered vinyl of their logo. If anyone has ever tried their hand at a layered vinyl logo you know that it isn’t easy to do. Every color in their logo is a different layer of vinyl. The layers give the logo a 3D look which is what I was going for. It took about 3 attempts to get it right but I got it!
For the assembly I took a 26″ double wall rim and hand laced the bright yellow stainless steel spokes into it, tanking special care not to destroy the logo work on the rim. After that it was the usual 3 hours of assembly time fitting all the parts and remaining decals before picture time. I wanted to do something different with the photos on this one. I first found an abandoned Marine Corps supply bunker and snapped a few photos at sunset but I didn’t feel as though I had what I wanted just yet. As I was wondering around base I came across this industrial plant that was shooting white plumes of steam out it’s stacks. That was it! Right across the road was a water puddle about 2″ deep. As you can see from the pictures it was the perfect backdrop for the photo shoot.
Happy Stitches Embroidery is very happy with their product and we are very happy with our ball cap’s and T-shirts. Super fun build for a great company, can’t wait to do business with them again. Thank you for checking out the Happy Stitches Embroidery Build and don’t forget to check out the other builds and videos we have posted.
