Store prints AFC championship shirts


As fans celebrated the Broncos defeat over the Patriots, employees at Shirt Stop quickly got to work printing AFC Championship shirts.

"We started right after the game ended," said Steve Fredrick, owner of Shirt Stop.

It takes 2 minutes for shirts to go through the printer and dryer- 800 each hour. With a total of 12,000 shirts, it's a 15-hour printing process. Fredrick said he's holding off on celebrating until all the shirts are finished.

"You can't have a beverage during the game and try to stay up till 5 o'clock in the morning- about 3 o'clock, you really get tired," he said.

Andy Davenport works at the printing shop seasonally. "They wanted me here at half time but I said no. I'm not doing that. I'm watching the whole game," Davenport said.

Employees will work late into the night. Most won't finish until 5 a.m. Davenport says the secret to staying awake is drinking "lots of Red Bull."

Fredrick said shirts will be available Monday at Kohl's, Sport's Authority, J.C. Penney and Walmart.
