Jared Ostendorf has owned the Minuteman Press franchise in Fayetteville, NC since July of 2009.

For nearly 15 years, Jared has successfully grown his business by delivering high quality products and outstanding customer service time and time again for his clients.

One notable client that Jared has been working with for the past few years is the Carolina Hurricanes. Since the 2021-22 NHL hockey season, Minuteman Press in Fayetteville, NC has been the go-to “print and sign provider” for the Hurricanes.

From Season-Ticket Holder to Printing Partner. Prior to their professional partnership taking place, Jared has been a huge fan and supporter of the Hurricanes.

“Originally, I was a season ticket holder prior to becoming a corporate partner. When I heard about the opportunity to become the ‘print and sign provider of the Carolina Hurricanes’ I reached out and had lunch with one of their executives. After supplying a handful of professional references and answering questions centered around their sense of urgency and meeting deadlines, we shook hands and I told them I would do my best to meet their expectations,” shared Ostendorf.

For the past three seasons, Jared has delivered on that promise.

“We do all [the] signage for the Carolina Hurricanes, who are the main tenant of the PNC Arena. We do the outside graphics on the PNC Arena, signage for the playoffs and win tracker, inside locker room graphics, dasher boards (the decals around the walls of the ice), graphics behind the benches, penalty boxes, Olympia ice resurfacer wraps, and more,” shared Ostendorf.  “We have had the opportunity to work with customers such as Pepsi, Chick-fil-A, Lexus, Invisalign, as well as the NHL directly.”

Jared and his team at Minuteman Press in Fayetteville have shown to be trusted partners who can meet tight deadlines for the Hurricanes. 

“The first season we did the graphics, there was a really quick turnaround from the end of the regular season and the start of the playoffs. With rain in the forecast days ahead and a kickoff tailgate party set for Saturday that same week, we literally walked into the arena as the crowd was exiting the last regular season game to install new graphics on the benches and penalty boxes. Once traffic cleared, we got to work around 11 p.m. at night to start on the outside graphics. We worked through the night to meet their deadline and they were very pleased with the results,” shared Ostendorf.

Jim Ballweg is the Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for the Carolina Hurricanes and  shared his positive experience working with Minuteman Press in Fayetteville, saying: 

“Jared and his entire team have been great to work with and there has not been one time since we have begun our partnership that they have not delivered a quality product with on-time installation. I have a saying that I live by every day – Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say – and that is what Jared and his team live by! Go Canes!”

Ostendorf  shared that he and his team are committed to continuing to provide excellent service to the Carolina Hurricanes. 

“As is expected with an NHL hockey team, everyone affiliated with advertising and promotions for the Carolina Hurricanes is under a timetable. Corporate sponsors are paying to advertise for the regular season as well as the playoffs so the bulk of our work comes just prior to opening night in October and the kickoff for the playoffs in April.,” shared Ostendorf. “We are proud of our work at Minuteman Press in delivering high quality printing and signage for the Hurricanes and meeting the demands and deadlines of their sponsors and partners.”
