Home Depot Apron Art Designs ...
Without going into things too much, I can't just "work" at a place, especially at a retail establishment like Home Depot. So, after getting there I looked at the aprons and how people either wrote their names using Sharpie or had someone hand letter a name on their apron. Not for me, so I began experimenting with how to use T-shirt transfers to add some pizzazz to the process. What you see are some of the more fun designs I have done. About 1/4 of our store now uses something I do, and I'm also called on to design specialty aprons for walk-throughs or special events. At first the top dogs didn't understand the designs, that is, that they retain the Home Depot "Value Wheel" but also give a real flavor for what drives the individual associate. Now, things have changed. My store pays for my ink and transfers and associates pay a fee per design (which goes to the Employee Fund).
