Boston Crusaders Joins The Field and Floor FX Family

The Boston Crusaders are proud to join the Field and Floor FX family this summer!

In this new partnership, Field and Floor FX will serve as the Boston Crusaders’ sole flag production partner and play a pivotal role in the development of our visual effects. Our teams will collaborate on flag silk designs, allowing our 2023 production to come to life through Field and Floor’s high quality digitally printed fabrics.

“While I have had years of positive experiences with Field and Floor FX, this new relationship has been incredible at fostering a frictionless design process and the overall, end product quality,” said Keith Potter, Artistic Director of the Boston Crusaders. “Doug and his team have been instrumental in our off season and long term growth as a competitive, performance ensemble.”

As one of the marching arts’s leading fabric and vinyl designers, Field and Floor FX has provided high quality digitally printed flags, vinyl, and fabric elements for the last 13 years. The Boston Crusaders are proud to join Field and Floor FX’s impressive roster which includes countless drum corps, winter guards, and marching bands across the country.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Inspire Arts and The Boston Crusaders,” said Doug Gardner, Founder and Director of Field and Floor FX. “Our shared values, commitment and understanding of how our community can help change lives is a perfect fit. It’s why we do what we do.”

The Boston Crusaders are excited to kick off the beginning of a long collaboration alongside Field and Floor FX. Stay tuned to see Keith and Field and Floor FX’s designs on the field soon!
