On the 7th of April, at the beginning of this month, Saltycustoms has existed for 10 years! And of course that had to be celebrated. Our story starts in the year 2010 when we started as a small B2B business company in Malaysia and realized that there was a great need for custom t-shirts of good quality, fit and design. Now, ten years later, we have grown into a large and organized company with many well-known partners such as Grab, Airbnb, Amazon, Facebook Singapore, Nestle products, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and many, many more.
To celebrate our anniversary, we planned a big celebration on Friday April 3 for employees, their family and friends. The party was themed 'Great Gatsby' and everyone was obliged to come in costume.
However, with the arrival of COVID-19 and the measures that the government had to take as a result, the event unfortunately had to be postponed to a later date :( (sobs sobs)
Although everyone was very disappointed, we did everything we could to make the event as fun as possible, but then: virtual. We have creatively tried to move the party from the office to home.
With a special thank you to our employees Puteri Inez, Justin Shye and Jesslyn Ngo, who took the lead to move the event and re-enthuse everyone about the replacement event. To make up for missing out our real event, they have set up the online event on April 1st and through Google Meet we still managed to celebrate our 10th anniversary in a fun, creative and funny way. We organized the evening in the same way that we would actually do it at the office: an award ceremony, a competition for the best and worst dressed, games and much more. Although it was not an ideal situation, it was a great success! We laughed a lot, enjoyed ourselves and celebrated our company!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners, suppliers and customers for the past ten years. Without you, we would never have been where we are now and we are very grateful for that. We hope we can count on your support and trust and are very much looking forward to everything that awaits us. On to the next 10 years!
