What are the most commonly asked questions about our stores? Here are your answers.
QB Online stores is a division of Queensboro.com, a 30 year old marketer of custom logo apparel and other promotional products.
Queensboro.com started out life in 1982 in New York City as The Queensboro Shirt Company. In its early days, Queensboro just sold custom embroidered polo shirts (two colors, three sizes) to small and medium sized business through small ads in the back of magazines and newspapers such as The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal and many of the airline in-flight magazines.
I started Queensboro, which I still own and run, as a college student at Columbia University in New York. At the time, I was fascinated and just kind of blown away by the intense popularity of the Lacoste Alligator and Ralph Lauren "Man on the Horse" logo polos.
Wouldn't it be great, I thought, if a person could get the same quality shirt as the original French Lacoste polo, but with any logo or design a person wanted on it?
Thus, as a fledgling notion in my college dorm room, The Queensboro Shirt Company was born. And for the first time ever, a small business, group or organization could get a great quality polo, custom embroidered with any logo or design they wanted, all at a great price with a Ten Year Unconditional Guarantee.
Over the next few years, as I went on to Business School and the company grew, Queensboro's product line expanded to include a full line of apparel, and Queensboro produced the first ever custom logo apparel catalog. In 1995 Queensboro moved from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina, and in 1997 we launched the industry's first fully interactive web site selling custom logo apparel. Today, Queensboro operates out of an 80,000 square foot facility in Wilmington, employees over 100 people, and we sell over one million shirts and other custom embroidered and other printed promotional products a year.
QB Online Stores is born...
Over the years, our customers have asked us about setting up online stores to sell and distribute their logo merchandise. In 2007 we started a pilot development on this project but technology challenges limited the functionality. We kept working on it, however, and in the fall of 2010 we launched MyCustomEStore.com, an easy to use platform that allowed us to create custom online stores for our customers, make-on-demand all merchandise ordered for as little as a single piece ordered, as well as allowing our customers to have complete control of all merchandise offered as well as the individual profit margins on each product, with Queensboro taking care of all order processing, customer service and fulfillment.
As we started to set up these stores, it became clear that our customers had a wide variety of needs for this service. Some were happy with the very basic single store front, but others needed things as advanced as having several hundred distinct sites with some degree of individual control, but all linked and managed by a single corporate parent. Due to this growing complexity, we re-thought our original concept and in the spring of 2012 launched QB Online Stores offering three tiers of stores: Basic - our simple, free, MyCustomEStore.com original solution, Enhanced - our Basic solution with a few extra bells and whistles, and Premium - which offers a completely custom solution (which we have yet to get a request for that we couldn't accommodate)!
To date QB Online Stores has set up over 3,700 stores and we sign up many new online storefront customers every day. Since 1982 we have sold well over 10 Million shirts. However, our primary goal that we pursued when we sold our first shirt in 1982 has not changed. Our number one priority at both Queensboro.com and QB Online stores is to make every customer, big or small, feel like our most important customer, and to sell great quality products at great prices in a manner that helps brighten the day for anyone we work with.
Thanks for your time and your interest in QB Online Stores. Please let us know if you have any questions. We hope to work with you for many years to come.
