Our customers consistently chose us because of our commitment to quality, time and focus on self-expression.

Over the years, we have simplified the process of creating customized products and ensured that our customers only explain their need – we take care of the rest. We make sure that the final product is always unique, innovative and personal.

Our Commitment to Preserving the Environment and Running a Sustainable Business

We embrace our ecological responsibilities and are committed to the cause of Single Stream Recycling.

We donate all misprinted items and products that do not pass our quality standards to charities overseas.

To promote the cause of fair trade, we offer our customers many options for shirts that are WRAP certified (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production). The certification is a guarantee that these items are produced in factories that treat their employees fairly and do not permit sweatshop practices.

Jayme Schmidt

Jayme, owner of Exper-T’s, and commonly known around the office as HBIC, is a single Mom of 2 awesome children and one rotten dog named Ugg. She was born and raised in South Dakota (yes, that is a state) on a 1,000 acre farm. Her favorite part about owning the business is helping customers bring their ideas to life and giving her employees a fun and fantastic place to work. In her extremely limited spare time, she loves attending Virginia Tech football games with her Dad. GO HOKIES! Jayme is rarely spotted without a Diet Mountain Dew in hand and can often be found patrolling the parking lot on her breaks!

Katie More

Katie, manager and sass master, is from Leesburg, Virginia. She graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Business. Katie has been a key player at Exper-T’s since her sophomore year of college. After graduation, she was promoted to manager and has been one of the faces of the business ever since. Katie has many fond memories from her years at Exper-T’s, including the time a customer called to ask if “spanking paddles,” were available, and proceeded to come to the store to “try them out.” Another time, Jayme surprised Katie with a puppy after she mentioned they needed a shop dog and Ugg has been the mascot ever since. Katie loves her customers and employees. Katie is a proud lefty and her interests include her husband, kids, dogs and the Virginia Tech Hokies!
