This time, we got lot of items to be sold from our 4 booths. Unlike last year's Palarong Pambansa in Palawan which we only focused on t-shirts. Now, we will be selling plastic keychains, mugs, button pins and mini-shirts.
We also got new interesting t-shirt designs but still, last year's hottest designs will be displayed. Though we heard that some of it were copied by our competitors, we're very confident that nobody makes it better than us...because we are the original and they just imitate.
So to all our regular costumers, see you in Tacloban!
Watch out for our new designs...i'll be posting it here next week!

SINULOG 2009 Bazaar participants along Osmeña Blvd. are putting their hopes on this weekend’s festivities to increase their revenues and make up for last month’s low sales.
Among them is Glenn Baratbate, proprietor of Davao-based t-shirt printing business called Xtreme Designs that has been participating in the annual bazaar for four consecutive years.
Compared to the previous years, Baratbate said his stall had experienced low sales since it opened on Dec. 1, 2008. Xtreme Designs’ stall pays P70,000 as rent for the two-month Sinulog Bazaar.
He said he used to earn an average of P10,000 a day, especially during Christmas and Sinulog. Nowadays, he earns only about P3,000 a day.
He said the low sales turnout could be blamed more on the presence of the night market in Colon rather than the impact of the global financial crisis on consumers.
“Instead of buyers coming here, they will go straight there (Colon) because of its accessibility and the presence of neighboring establishments,” he said.
Baratbate also cited competition among vendors at the Sinulog Foundation Inc.-sponsored bazaar where there are at least five t-shirt printers.
He said that his best sales was in 2007, during the Association of South East Asian Nations summit, due to the high influx of tourists coming to buy various souvenir items.
Xtreme Designs sells t-shirts and novelty products with original designs. It offers various services, like t-shirt printing, desktop publishing and tarpaulin printing, among others.
The prices of its t-shirts with “ordinary” designs would range from P130 for women to P150 for men while garments with “metallic” designs cost P180 for women and P200 for men.
“We did not increase the prices even when the cost of our equipment increased because we still want to offer affordable and quality shirts,” Baratbate said.
He and his staff, hoping for bigger sales over the weekend, are already stocking up their shelves in time for the Sinulog Festival.
Like Baratbate, Jenny Solmayor who sells shoes, also attributed this year’s low sales to competition and to sidewalk vendors who are not renting but would find spaces near the bazaar to sell.
But Emma Aniñon believes the global financial crisis prompted consumers to become wise spenders.
Aniñon is selling native products and souvenir items at the Sinulog 2009 Bazaar for the first time, but she maintains a small stall near the Basilica del Sto. Niño.
This mother of five would earn P5,000 to P10,000 in sales from the two stalls toward Christmas and New Year. Now, she would be thankful to earn about P500 a day.
Locals would buy bracelets, necklaces and earrings while tourists would purchase souvenir items from her.
“I am still grateful for this space (along Osmeña Blvd.) since it would be hard for us to sell near the Basilica during the festival without people trampling on our products due to the thick crowd of devotees,” she said in Bisaya.She added that she is looking forward to the Sinulog Festival on Sunday when a huge number of visitors are expected to participate in street parties and other activities along Osmeña Blvd.

Passion for artwork drives an entrepreneur to success
By Reno T. Tallada (The Freeman) Updated January 14, 2008 12:00 AM
Who would have thought that a bundle of five dozens of plain t-shirts will pilot this young man towards the realization of an established printing company?
Certainly, Mr. Glenn Baratbate, 28, is still overwhelmed by that. This young entrepreneur is a native of Davao City. At an early age, he has already shown great passion to art. He stressed out that ever since he has always been inclined to any form of artwork. He even recalled that during his elementary years, he used to join art and drawing competitions and eventually excel on it.
Out of extreme interest to drawing and printing, he then worked with his friend who was doing a printing business before. However, the situation did not go well at that time. The business was closed and Glenn was only then given five dozens of t-shirts as a sort of compensation for his working with them.
But then, his passion to art has always been blazing inside him, and that passion has ultimately gave birth to his own printing company, the “Extreme Designs” which he brought all the way from Davao in order to participate and sell their shirt items during this Sinulog season.
This perennial Sinulog business visitor is currently operating its small stall along the Osmeña Boulevard together with the Sinulog bazaar for this Sinulog season, offering their Sinulog souvenir t-shirts. They are at this time selling t-shirts that have striking and ridiculous messages. If you were a person of reserve personality, they could provide you shirts with messages that would speak of your vulnerability. If you like to look striking and “astig” for that matter, they also sell shirts that have unusual and tough messages and designs. Basically, the shirts would range from 150-400 pesos only, yet, you can also ask them to provide and print you with your own personalized message on the t-shirt.
According to Glenn, this business is geared towards everyone. He said that not only the “bugoys” are being targeted in this business, but all people who want to express their emotions thru the messages imprinted on their shirts.
For almost four years “Extreme Designs” has been successfully operating and has two branches in Davao City, but they are planning to open a branch here in Cebu City. If that is the case, the they do not only vend “emo” shirts for the Sinulog season, but they could as well render services such as printing on novelty items such as mugs, pins, bags, etc. They also produce tarpaulins and posters, logo designs and are into desktop publishing. They even conduct graphics training.
For a businessman as young as Glenn, he could only advise one important thing to other aspiring entrepreneurs, “ kung gusto ninyong mag-negosyo, siguraduon ninyong ang inyong gusto ang negosyo..dili kay mag-negosyo mo para ra mokita..” He believed that if you go for something that is close to your heart and you have your passion on it, you will devote your time and initiative just to prosper in the field that you opt to take.
So, if you want to express your saddest, happiest and even your darkest emotions this Sinulog, drop by at “Extreme Designs” in the Sinulog bazaar along Osmeña Boulevard, and they’ll certainly print your emotions out.
