It’s always fun to see a Hotronix heat press hard at work, like this picture tweeted by @DrewGoldfarb on February 26, 2015 from a #FlaPanthers game.  Heat printing is perfect for situations like this, where new players are added to a team during the season. With a heat press, you’re just seconds away from a personalized jersey. We’ve been providing NHL merchandisers with licensed player  name and number kits for many years. We also found another interesting link to Stahls’ on the internet earlier this week. On the website Quora, where people can post questions and answers to those questions, we found this article. It appears that someone asked about the use of collegiate lettering and Archie D’Cruz answered with a rather lengthy explanation that included the history of Stahls’ and our grandfather A.C. Stahl’s contributions to the world of athletic lettering. (Thanks to @ErichCampbell from Black Duck Inc. for sharing with us on Twitter) One inaccuracy in the article is that the old fashioned kick press pictured is actually a heat press. It isn’t. But most of the other information is true and we believe the author culled the information from other sources on the web, such as this video about the history of Stahls’. If you have time this weekend, take a look at the video. It was put together back in 2007 and re-watching it was fantastic to hear our mother Ricki’s voice and see her recorded testimony about her part in making Stahls’ the company that it is today. We miss you Mom but know you are looking down on all of us.

This photo was taken last week at the Detroit Arsenal of Democracy. John Lind (left) is the founder of the Detroit Arsenal of Democracy.  Mary and I are holding a copy of the check donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. The funds were raised at the Stahls Automotive Museum Veterans Day 2014 event and the Stahl family matched all the donations. The Detroit Arsenal of Democracy also displayed many of their vintage military vehicles at the November event. If you’re in the Detroit area, put this event on your calendar for next Veterans Day!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Veterans Day Event 2014 that was held at the Stahls Automotive Museum back in November. The event was open free to the public, but we also collected donations for the Wounded Warrior Project. We were very proud to be be able to present the Wounded Warrior Project with a check for $22,000 after matching the funds raised. Thank you to John at the Detroit Arsenal of Democracy for bringing your fantastic military vehicles to display during the November event.

Leave it to Ben Robinson to go all out when I asked for a photo depicting the weather...glad to see the snow hasn't "chilled" your sense of humor.

Leave it to Ben Robinson at Stahls’ Hotronix to go all out when I asked for a photo depicting the weather…glad to see the snow hasn’t “chilled” your sense of humor.

On February 19th 2015, Stahls’ Hotronix, located in Carmichaels, Pennsylvania, experienced an all time record low temperatures of ( -7 degrees ) with wind chills of 30 below. On another note–on this day new all-time records on heat press sales are also being set. Hotronix Fusion heat press sales are so hot, Ben took the opportunity to roast hot dogs with team members over the hottest selling heat press on the planet! (no heat presses were harmed in the production of this photo, but DO NOT try this at home!) Team members from other GroupeSTAHL locations also chimed in with their, “cold weather, hot sales” photos. Thank you to everyone who braved the temperatures to take these fun photos and thank you to all our customers who are keeping us busy indoors with all your Spring Season orders.

Same below freezing temperatures at Stahls' in St. Clair Shores, where it was hard to get reps away from the phones...the cold weather is not stopping busy season sales from coming in or orders going out!

Team members at Transfer Express in Mentor, Ohio also report temperatures below freezing but volunteered to take a photo despite -15 in the sun.
