Before we were able to blast off into space, we needed our ideas and mindsets to get us there first. The official ROQ.US Reading List & Book Club is intended to be a treasure trove of insights, anecdotes, and data to inspire you to explore new opportunities and possibilities.

Though cross-genre in scope, these titles have inspired, engaged, and entertained us, and we share them in hopes they will do the same for you. This group is meant to be an ongoing discussion -- your recommendations and perspectives are critical as we continue to expand what it means to be in the decorated apparel industry and #PressOnward together!

It's been just over a week since our official $1,000+ contract job #ROQSolo Contest began and the competition is heating up! 

This is just getting started, Folks! Now that you see your current competition, are you ready to #ROQSolo? We look forward to featuring you next!

The women and men of ROQ.US' Mission Control are your dedicated satellite always on standby to keep you comfortably soaring in orbit -- rain or shine or anything in between. We take our mission seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. This interstellar voyage is formidable business but we’re enjoying the ride and views along the way with You! ROQ.US is committed to making sure you can repeatedly say with a smile, "Mission Accomplished!"

Thank you for joining us for last week’s  #ShamROQ 2020 webinar event! From the entire ROQ.US team, we want you to know that we got your back and we’re here to #pressonward with you! 

NOTICE! WE ARE STILL OPEN & WE ARE SHIPPING! #dontstopthepresses

We are re-launching sections of the event on our blog -- be sure to catch the first session of #WomenROQ that we just posted Monday. 

As the printing landscape continues to change daily, here are some ideas, actions, and resources you can take advantage of right now: 

“My barn having burned down, I can now see the moon.”
― Mizuta Masahide (17th century Japanese poet and samurai)

With the slew of stay-at-home orders coming through across the country, I briefly found myself longing for some semblance of the ways things used to be. In the confines of a quarantine, it’s easy to fall into the trapping allure of thinking the days of old were so much better, so much easier, so much more desirable. And while in many ways, the familiar routines of yesterday felt more comfortable, perhaps most of that comfort came explicitly from the familiarity we gave our regular to-dos. 

First things first -- Women don't need anyone to say it for it to be true... but it's our honor to say it, yell it, and support it loudly... #WomenROQ!

As more and more Women enter and lead the screen printing industry, we're thrilled to give credit where credit is due. All you amazing Women in decorated apparel are our Heroines and we thank You for the privilege to honor You!

#WomenROQ is all about putting a much-overdue and much-deserve spotlight on the Women who are ROQ'ing this industry and who are constantly innovating and changing the game for us to learn from and follow. This is just the beginning. Women are the future of our industry and that long-time-coming future is bright!

One of the most meaningful and empowering lessons we were given from Sir Isaac Newton is his third law of motion, “To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.” 

Perhaps there will be no greater time than the present to embrace the wisdom that single statement contains. As our world and our industry scrambles for answers and moves to a temporary isolated system, it’s imperative that we #dontstopthepresses and #pressonward together.

These are challenging times! After reading some of your social media posts, it’s obvious you’re feeling a little blue. Some of you have been feeling a little blue for a while - if you know what we mean ;)

This is the time to stay positive, stay focused, 
#PressOnward, and #PressYourLuck!
