The Face Behind the Biz: Meet Mary!

 

Burt’s Logo Apparel is not only a Fort Collins staple, locally owned business and community-oriented operation – Burt’s is also family run! Burt and his wife, Mary, have been at the helm of Burt’s Logo Apparel for more than 30 years, and we’d like to take a moment for you to get to know Mary.

 

What was your very first job?

I was 15 years old and worked at the Yuma Country Club.

 

What is something most people don’t know about you?

I worked for a snow and avalanche research center during college and was planning to take a job in Antarctica for a year studying hydrology and working as a cook. As it turned out, love won out and I stayed here with Burt!

 

What do you love most about your job?

Working with my true love for 33 years and experiencing the thrill of building a great business.

 

What is your funniest work memory?

In the early years, we pretty much worked all the time. One time, we were working Friday night for a big CSU fraternity job deadline and we had our son, who was about six months old at the time, sleeping in a t-shirt box. Boy, did we get the looks from the frat boys!

 

What unique skill would you love to possess?

I would love to be a heavy equipment operator for a day.

 

What is your dream travel spot?

Traveling in my own backyard and experiencing the great national parks of the USA.

 

There you have it! We hope you enjoyed getting to know Mary. The next time you stop by to order t-shirts, promotional products or to see Burt’s artwork in the First Friday Art Walk, be sure to tell her hi!

Stop by Burt’s During the April Art Walk!

The First Friday Art Walk has a new kid on the block! Along with running your favorite Fort Collins apparel branding business, Burt is quite the talented artist. We are proud to join the other spectacular artists in the community and be a part of the Downtown Business Association’s First Friday Art Walk.

We hope you will join us on Friday, April 7, to check out the artwork that Burt’s has on display and get to know the artist behind the masterpieces. When you stop by, be sure to enter to win branded CSU apparel that we’ll have up for grabs!

Here is a sneak preview of some of Burt’s favorite pieces:

 

 

We’re looking forward to joining the ranks of the other talented artists in our downtown community and hope that you will come out to see the many art pieces on display that night.
