Simplified: The team at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire see their brand as a way to showcase the impact they have on children in the community. And with the help of Panther Premier Print Solutions, they've found an easy way to get their logo and brand designs printed on anything they need.

Why it matters

  • The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire serves 1500 kids in the region, with programs for kids as young as 4 weeks old all the way to age 18.
  • All nonprofit employees are required to wear clothes with the organization's brand, and in the past with other vendors, those branded shirts and other articles of clothing could take weeks or months to get delivered. Now, working with Panther, they know any new orders will be quickly fulfilled, and the nonprofit even keeps a regular stock of popular logo-wear on hand.
  • The working relationship started with apparel, but Panther now helps the Boys & Girls Clubs with all kinds of services from event signage to branded employee gifts to updated branding for the nonprofit's administrative offices.
"Whether people are coming to an event or picking up a flyer, our brand is something they can recognize and trust," said Lexie Feterl. "No one serves as wide of a range of kids as we do, and showcasing our brand helps tell that story to the community."

Tell me more about the services Panther offers

Panther's goal is to offer clients a way to put their brand on anything, anywhere – from stationary to laser engraving to vehicle wraps to apparel – and they do it all in their Sioux Falls facility.

The company also works to really get to know clients and present options for branded items that are relevant to their customers.

  • For the Boys & Girls Clubs, that's meant presenting ideas for stationary, vehicle wraps and everything in between.

Panther's customer service also shows up with reliable order fulfillment.

"Taking care of kids is where their time needs to be – not worrying about when apparel is going to arrive," Panther's Vice President of Operations Aaron Wimmer said of the company's work with the nonprofit.

Another benefit of working with Panther has been the variety of quality options for products, as well as inclusive sizing when it comes to apparel, Feterl said.

How Panther has gone beyond branding to help

Working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire has also given Panther employees an opportunity to give back to the community.

  • This holiday season, the Panther team sponsored a teen at the nonprofit by fulfilling their wish list, including not only toys and fun things but also some essential items for the family.
"That type of community involvement and giving back is extremely important to us," Wimmer said.
