Meet Aspinline's Customers: Edward Parsons
Meet Edward Parsons. Edward’s a member of the Essex Ghostbusters, a non-profit costuming group based on the hit 80s film Ghostbusters in Essex, UK. The group attends conventions and events throughout the country and focuses its efforts on charitable work. They often work on behalf of charities to raise money, doing everything from events and site visits, to street collections, school fete's and more.
Aspinline has been working with Edward on promotional items for the Essex Ghostbusters for a while now. We spoke with him after his latest order (pictured below) and found out how it’s been working with our team. Here’s what he had to say!
Can you tell us about the Essex Ghostbusters?
“We dress up like Ghostbusters and we go to charity events and conventions. People take their love of the movie Ghostbusters and channel it into charity work. We’ve raised a lot of money for Asthma UK, Stop hate UK, Cancer Research UK, hospices and more. Ghostbusters groups are all over the country and world. I’ve been a fan of the film since I was a kid. I saw a documentary about the fandom and have been working [at Essex Ghostbusters] ever since. I’ve gotten to meet a lot of the stars and it’s opened up a lot of opportunities.”
What will you be using these patches for?
“The patches are all based around Ghostbusters. We sell and donate the patches. All proceeds go to charity. They will be used at conventions. It’s a bit something extra to have at the tables we have. Another thing to bring to the table and get people interested.”
What has been your overall experience working with Aspinline?
“Perfect, to be completely honest with you! I’ve worked with many companies over the years in my career. In over 15 years, Aspinline is the only company that has been perfect from day one. It’s really good. I’ve never seen that with another company before. I can’t praise you highly enough.”
How is it working with the Aspinline team?
“It’s great. Everyone’s very friendly professional prompt and there’s no waiting around for responses. Quick, efficient and friendly. It’s a break from the norm - I stopped working with a company recently because they took 2-3 weeks just to respond to emails. With Aspinline, I can put an order in at 9am and hear back before noon. You’re the only company I have been able to work with that offers me a hassle free experience.”
Can you tell us about the quality of your patches from Aspinline?
“The patches are brilliant. The quality is really, really good compared to patches I’ve ordered from other companies in the past. I have patches from you guys that have been washed multiple times and they still look brand new.”
Would you recommend Aspinline products to others?
“I would and I have several times! Whenever anyone asks me where I get mine, I point them in your direction.”
It was great to hear what Edward had to say about working with Aspinline and to learn more about the Essex Ghostbusters and their fantastic work. :)
