I run a sharpening/service business is called Golden Gate Sharpening. I would like to offer my work to 2K members, either through the mail or in person in Northern California. I'd be glad to assist you in any way possible. I have invested a lot of money and many years of work into my shop and would love to provide my services to the hockey community. Email me - email@example.com or (text only) my work number - 925-315-7656 to get the ball rolling.
Just a reminder though: My shop is a service shop, not a retail shop. I don't sell any hockey equipment (retail or pro stock) and or carry any inventory. I do not sell or stock any new equipment, holders, steel, tongues, wheels, bearings, or parts. I only provide the services and installations. I do have size 6-8.5 Koho roller hockey chassis and as some smaller items like tape, but otherwise do not carry parts. However, I can order steel or holders from Ice Warehouse or Hockey Monkey free of charge as part of the service I am providing. Ex. If you are swapping to Marsblades, I will order the Marsblades directly to my shop, then install them as soon as they are received.
I can do the following jobs. Shipping/return shipping not included.
-Basic sharpening (Blademaster ROH and Blackstone FBV 100/50, 100/75, 95/75, 95/1) - $10 per pair, does not include return shipping. I recommend sending multiple pairs at once for the best value.

In additon, I am an experienced visual and graphic designer I can do the following:
-Design your beer league team's jerseys, socks, helmet decals, apparel, bags, soakers, etc, then have them printed by Jerzeys FX, an amazing company. I use Stick Bandits (another fantastic company) for decals.
-Design custom gloves with a logo (created by myself or someone else) and have them created by Eagle, Warrior, or Fischer).
-Run and design your team's social media, including thumbnails, gameday posts, final score posts, updates, game pictures, etc.
