‘Dual Champs’ t-shirts hot off the press

GUILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Two titles in two days mean more ‘swag’ so fans can brag. But someone’s got to make all that Championship gear.

As soon as the clock ran out in Nashville, it started in Guilford to get the Dual Champs shirts pressed and sealed at Zuse .

For UConn licensee Dennis Powers it’s…

“Bedlam. It has been bedlam, but it’s been good. A little tired right now we’ve been going non-stop since Monday afternoon,” said Powers.

“We’ve done it for  number of different events like this so by this time everyone’s got the routine down but sometimes if you’re not up for it, you kinda root for the other team. But for the UConn win, you gotta show up and you gotta play,” said Ted Zuse, Zuse Printing.

Crews have been up since 11 Tuesday night to get them done, a challenge they took on ten years ago too.

“I don’t believe it’s as strong as far as sales were in 2004. I mean it’s very good. It has the potential to possibly get there if the sales continue for the next week or two, but in 2004 it was like a major deal for both of them to win,” said Powers.

When all is said and done, they have to make 30-40,000 t-shirts. They have to box them and they have to ship them. So, after all that. There’s only one thing left to do.

“I can’t wait to go to sleep. I’m exhausted,” said Powers.

He can for now.

With how hot the Huskies are, you might see a three-peat sooner than later.
