Patriotic gear sales on the rise

Merry Thomas, Sun News Service

Lake Tahoe Printing Co. has been selling patriotic gear faster than it can make it, according to Sheri Eberhardt, president and owner of the Kings Beach business.

Like so many North Shore residents, indeed so many Americans, Sheri and Steve Eberhardt found a way to help families of victims as well as disaster-relief efforts. Proceeds from the patriotic T-shirts and decals will be given to the United Way September 11 Fund, an account established for victims and their families.

The company is producing long- and short-sleeved T-shirts in white and in gray heather. They are available in two designs. One features a bald eagle with an American flag and the phrase, “Americans united.” The other features the Statue of Liberty draped in the American flag, with the phrase, “United we stand.”

The printing company also offers several styles of decals. Bumper stickers similar to the familiar “Keep Tahoe Blue” picture the lake with red and white stripes and white stars on blue background. In this case, the slogan is “Keep Tahoe red, white and blue.” Two styles of American flag window decals are offered. One is the basic flag and the other is a flag design across the continental United States.

Lake Tahoe Printing Co. will distribute the products to local businesses that would like to have them on hand for customers. The Eberhardts will deliver the materials to businesses who would like to be part of their effort.

The decals cost $1 each; short-sleeved shirts are $10 and long-sleeved are $15.
