Hirsch Intl., Hauppauge, N.Y., announced that its customer Signatures, Mauldin, S.C., was featured in a nationally televised news story about the U.S. Olympic team’s uniforms.

Signatures does contract embroidery for Loggerhead Apparel, Greenville, S.C., and it was Zac Painter, co-founder of Loggerhead, who discovered that the uniforms for the U.S. Olympic team were manufactured in China.

He tweeted to ABC News that his company could have produced these uniforms in a quicker and more sustainable way. ABC then picked up the story, which was originally broadcast July 13 on ABS’s “World News Tonight.” 
Signatures was featured in the portion of the newscast that showed apparel being embroidered on Tajima machines.
