Eagle Creek resident opens storefront business on Industrial Way
In an effort to be the one-stop shop for all sports team needs, an Eagle Creek resident has opened a storefront for her 4-year-old business.
Four years ago, Heather Moyer, who recently became a stay-at-home mom with a son who played sports, decided to start a home-based business creating custom window decals for proud sporting parents and the concept grew from there. In September, she opened Fan Club Creations and Awards in a storefront on Industrial Way.
In addition to decals, Moyers business creates custom awards, trophies, apparel and other gifts.
My husband jokes that its easier to ask what we cant do, she said. My dream was to be your one stop shop for all the sports needs. Every time someone asked for something, Id find a way to make it.
Moyer plans to add embroidery to Fan Clubs apparel customization options.
Ever Since Fan Club Creations and Awards acquired a trophy business out of Tualatin, many of Moyers customers are from the Tigard-Tualatin and Beaverton areas.
But I wanted to expand back to the Gresham and Sandy area, she noted.
Outgrowing her space at home, Moyer began looking for a store close to home. When the building on Industrial Way opened up, she jumped at the chance. The building allows for a showroom and office space in front and additional space in the back and upstairs for screen-printing and sand-blasting equipment.
This was our ideal space, she said.
For now, Moyer who has lived in Eagle Creek with her family for nearly 13 years runs the business on her own, with occasional help from her husband, Jerry. However, she hopes to hire an additional employee and expand her capabilities.
While it provides an open location for clients to come in and pick what they want, the new Fan Club space allows Moyer to see the results of her work.
Its being able to see the kiddos faces when they pick out a trophy, she said. I never got to see peoples reactions to the award before.
A sports lover, Moyer enjoys being a part of the recognition players get for their hard work.
In addition to providing a delivery service for products, Moyer and Fan Club often sponsor charity events and local Little League teams.
Its just so positive, Moyer said. Youre always providing excitement to someones life.
Fan Club Creations and Awards will hold a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2, following the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerces annual meeting.
