RCH Designs & Moab Diner along with several automotive industry partners come together to raise funds to benefit saving trails and land use.

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

For Immediate Release: April 2, 2014

For the fourth year running RCH Designs and Moab Diner team up to raise funds for land use and outfit the entire Moab Diner staff with this custom designed t-shirt created just for them.  For the full week of Easter Jeep Safari, the Moab Diner staff will wear and sell this t-shirt and a limited amount of sweatshirts.

Moab Diner Layout 2014We couldn’t be more excited about the interest and participation we received from this years sponsors.  “If you want to know who the true supporters are in the off road market place that care about keeping trails open for public use…take a look at the sponsors on this shirt layout. Each and every one of them donated their hard earned money to this t-shirt promotion, we do every year, which is used to help the fight to keep land and off road trails open in Moab, Utah,” stated Ryan Hagel owner RCH Designs.

100% of the money that we received from the sponsors for their logo placement was put towards buying shirts.  $8 from each t-shirt sale goes towards our goal of raising funds and awareness for keeping trails open for 4-wheel and general off road use.  The other $5 from each t-shirt sale is split between management and the servers at the Diner as an incentive to keep promoting them to each and every person that comes through the door.  It is the least we can do for the unwavering and ongoing support we receive from the Diner.

In effort to make sure the funds raised are put to good use and managed appropriately, RCH once again chose BlueRibbon Coalition, as the designated entity to receive the funds.

“This is a straightforward and simple program we put together, no fluff or hidden agendas.  Our goal is to raise as much money as we can from shirt sales to keep what we call ‘Gods country of four wheeling’ open for years and years to come,” stated Hagel.

The more public trails and open land that close in Moab and across the United States has a direct impact on the sale of off road parts / products and anything associated with this market niche, which is how some of us earn a living and others of us call it our passion.

Thanks to Del, Stacie and the entire team at BlueRibbon Coalition for your constant fight and promotion to keep our trails open, not only in Moab but nationwide.

Without the Moab Diner & our passionate industry partners that sponsor this t-shirt program, all we do is make shirts look cool. Thank you all!

Please friend or “like” these sponsors on facebook or support their products / services, as they are doing everything they can to support those that love the off roading community.

In 2013, over $5,500 was raised.  Our goal for this year is obviously to exceed that number.  Given the amazing sponsors we were able to obtain,  the continued support of the Diner staff and of course all the individuals that pre-ordered and will purchase at the Diner, we are very hopeful to reach and or exceed our goal.

2013 T-shirt

RCH Designs & Moab Diner together with automotive industry partners raise funds to benefit saving trails and land use in Moab – raising over $5,500 to be donated to the BlueRibbon Coalition.

“We started working with the general manager, James Butterfield, at the Moab Diner back in 2010.  We designed and printed a custom shirt specifically for Easter Jeep Safari that their entire staff wore and displayed all week.  This is a straightforward and simple program we put together, no fluff or hidden agendas.  Our goal is to raise as much money as we can from shirt sales to keep what I call ‘Gods country of four wheeling’ open for years and years to come,” stated Ryan Hagel, owner RCH Designs.

In the past we had limited the number of sponsors and tried to match manufacturers in effort to not have two competitors in the same field.  This worked well for the first couple years allowing us to raise and donate approximately two-thousand dollars to the BlueRibbon Coalition.

This year RCH decided to open up the playing field – welcoming all competitors. “If our intent is to raise money for this cause, I would only be going against the goal if we limit willing companies, said Hagel.  We all have a passion for this industry and I could only hope that if manufacturers wanted to get involved then we/they could set differences aside in the competitive business world that we live in and join forces together on this cause.”

100% of the money that we received from the sponsors for their logo placement was put towards buying shirts.  $8 from each t-shirt sale goes towards our goal of raising funds and awareness for keeping trails open for 4-wheel and general off road use.

In effort to make sure the funds raised were put to good use and managed appropriately RCH Designs again, thanks to the efforts of Del and Stacie Albright, chose the BlueRibbon Coalition as the designated entity to receive the donated funds and direct those funds back to the community of Moab and the fight to keep 4-wheeling / off-road trails open for everyone.

Thanks Del, Stacie and the entire team at BlueRibbon Coalition for your constant fight and promotion to keep our trails open, not only in Moab but nationwide.

The other $5 from each t-shirt sale is split between management and the servers at the Diner as an incentive to keep promoting them to each and every person that comes through the door.  It’s the least we can do for the unwavering and ongoing support we get from the Diner.

“This is what Moab Diner is all about ‘stuff that matters’,” said James Butterfield. “And it’s statements like this that keep us looking forward to next year, and the next, and…,” commented Hagel.

The more public trails and open land that close in Moab and across the United States has a direct impact on the sale of off road parts / products and anything associated with this market niche, which is how we all earn a living.

We could not make this happen without the Moab Diner & our passionate industry partners that sponsored this t-shirt program.  Thank you all!

MC PR image 1

For Immediate Release –

Huntington Beach, CA – March 6, 2013 – RCH Designs launches Version 3.0 website for MasterCraft Safety.  This new website incorporates feature rich and user friendly functionality, world class product photography (also done by RCH Designs) and full E-commerce capabilities.

“We always tell our clients that a website is never done, it’s always a work in progress.  Building a website is not like designing an ad for a magazine, after the initial creation you have to keep feeding it.  Since building the first site for MasterCraft back in 2007, to today’s launch, of what we call Version 3.0, not only has the technology behind building websites increased tremendously, so too has the product offerings from MasterCraft Safety, explained Ryan Hagel, CEO of RCH Designs. The ability to obtain full product knowledge and get all the way to “add to cart” in less than 3 – 4 clicks was the task set forth by Robbie Pierce, CEO of MasterCraft Safety.  Simple and easy navigation with clean pages throughout the site….sounds simple right?  Luckily I have the best team here at RCH Designs and we are very proud to put our name on this latest version,” said Hagel.

“We are extremely happy with the new site.  RCH has created a website that not only reflects our product at its best, but makes the user experience better than it’s ever been. As internet sales have increased so have consumer websites, as well as customers expectations while making purchases; we believe our new website meets those expectations,” stated Robbie Pierce, CEO MasterCraft Safety / Impact by MasterCraft Safety.

Two Ultra4 Race Teams Combine Efforts to Raise Awareness and Race for the Fight Against Cancer at the M.O.R.E 7th Annual Powder Puff Race.

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

September 6, 2012  – For Immediate Release:

RCH Designs (#4411) and Intrepid Off Road (#4455) join together to race for a cure.  On Saturday October 6, 2012 RCH Designs and Intrepid Off Road will compete in the M.O.R.E (Mohave Off-Road Enthusiasts) 7th Annual Powder Puff Race.  This is an all female off-road race held in the desert of Barstow, CA.

powderpuffTerra Hagel, co-owner of RCH Designs & Lorna Mildice, co-owner of Intrepid Off Road, will compete in Ultra4 car #4411, tackling approximately 100 miles of off-road terrain.

Car #4411 (previously owned and driven by Dean Bulloch) is use to climbing tough rock obstacles and racing wide-open desert in the Ultra4 series including, the King of the Hammers race held in Johnson Valley, CA.  As the new owner of this Ultra4/KOH car, Terra Hagel is looking forward to tackling the desert terrain in Barstow during practice and of course race weekend.

“This will by my second time competing in the M.O.R.E Powder Puff Race, though this time is sure to be different.  In 2009 the vehicle I drove (a Polaris RZR) had a max speed of 35mph, laughed Terra.  Our #4411 car with its LS1 motor has a top speed of, well…let’s just say it’s a bit faster!”

Yes, this is an all girls race, but don’t think our men aren’t out there to support us and have as much fun, if not more, than we will.  From the costumes, team shirts and the always-fun slogans/team names that come along with the Powder Puff race.  Though not in the driver seat for this race, the men really know how to take charge and dress the part when it comes to racing for awareness and supporting the ladies.

As of yet the #4411 is the only Ultra4 car competing in this years Powder Puff race.  So spread the word, we’d love to see a few more Ultra4 entries before race day.

“Our goal is always to have fun, but on a more serious note, as many of you out there, I too have loved ones I’ve lost to the fight and loved ones that have won the fight against the evilness of cancer; so this race is a bitter sweet opportunity for me to raise awareness and funds for cancer research all while mixing it up in the dirt with friends and family.”

Without the time, support, product and other generous contributions from our team sponsors we wouldn’t be able to participate in this great event.  Thank you all for helping us make a difference and raise awareness and funds for such an important and personal cause.

Race Day is Saturday Oct 6th!  For more race details please visit http://www.moreracing.net

About Ultra4 Racing/Hammerking Productions

The founders of Hammerking are the force behind the toughest one-day off-road race on the planet: King of The Hammers. King of The Hammers takes place each year in February, on public lands in Johnson Valley, CA.  Hammerking has established a racing class known as the Ultra4 class. The defining characteristic of this class is that all cars must be capable of 4-wheel drive. Beyond that, the class is unlimited, which means these cars come in all shapes and sizes and are capable of speeds over 100+ MPH and still contain gear ratios as low as 100 to 1 for technical rock crawling.

RCH Designs Introduces the Interactive Garage

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

header_logo

RCH Designs is a photography studio, marketing & sales support (we don’t like the tag/title of agency), graphic & web design, project vehicle coordinator, and general consultant for the automotive industry.  Our goal for our clients is to think outside of the box to create unique products, in this case, programs to help sell and market your accessories.

RCH Designs has developed the ultimate automotive accessories salesperson.  Combining an innovative software program with professional digital imaging we created Interactive Garage. The Interactive Garage software, hosted by RCH Designs, has no limitations. Interactive Garage can sell accessories on any web site 24/7/365, making it the hardest working employee or sales person you will ever hire.  Currently we are targeting the top manufacturers in the industry that are building products for the 2007-12 Jeep® Wrangler JK.

Traditional channels of distribution can be changed with the use of Interactive Garage. We solved complex programming problems to handle hundreds of accessories on a single vehicle.  Interactive Garage delivers powerful, data-driven, in-store or web-based interactive configuration software that allows consumers the opportunity to “try things on” interactively, ultimately allowing them to make more informed, more satisfying purchasing decisions. Interactive Garage will become the standard for visual personalization technology as it defines how vehicles can be personalized in the showroom, on the Internet, or at home by providing consumers a better way to view and buy exactly what they want.

In Interactive Garage we build vehicles, actually the customer designs the vehicle, and we are the mechanics, bolting accessories on/off at the click of a mouse in addition to displaying what interior and performance accessories are available with pop up information panels. The options to choose from are endless with a plethora of exterior, interior, and performance parts and accessories. The base vehicle is the one in your driveway you are thinking about fixing up, the one in the dealer showroom you are thinking about buying, or the one on Craig’s list that will be ‘new to you’.

Why/How Interactive Garage sells accessories:

1. First and foremost Interactive Garage is exciting, fun and very user friendly. After seeing Interactive Garage, vehicle owners that were not looking for accessories will want to see what is available for their vehicle.  A virtual “Wish List” creator.

2. Our software is on the job 24/7/365.  Interactive Garage knows all the products available for each vehicle, product features, current applications and pricing.

3. Interactive Garage shows the customer what the accessory will look like on their specified vehicle – make, model, and color.  What a stylist does for the fashion industry, Interactive Garage does for the automotive industry – allowing the consumer to see and try on different accessories/parts before purchasing.

4. The consumer can take all the time they need to personalize their vehicle, the program is viewable at home, the office, or sitting at their local Starbucks.

5. Interactive Garage can expose more accessories in 10 minutes than an in-store sales person can do in eight hours.

6. Consumers want to view a selection of products and styles and read product information before they make a decision. Interactive Garage provides this environment.

Question:

How do you get your products on the Interactive Garage Software program?

Answer:

Right now our main objective at Interactive Garage is to populate the database of products for the 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler JK (4-door).  At this time we will be offering up the following on a one-time “proof of concept” promotion.

Offer:

Send in your product/s to be photographed on our Jeep JK (product/s will remain the property of RCH Designs).

$200 imaging fee per product (future price for “Interactive Products” is $1000 per).

You will receive your product/s imaged on the JK with full usage rights* in high resolution .jpg or .tiff format.

*Configuration based on the available “other” products/accessories on the Interactive Garage Software in the same front ¾ view.  Does not include multiple angles and views of your product/s.

Product/s will be programmed in the Interactive Garage Software.

More Info box will be created and programmed to accompany your product/s on the Interactive Garage Software.

Upon your approval, product will be available to the online retailers that the Interactive Garage Software is licensed to.

Our scheduled date to shoot the Jeep JK in the RCH Designs studio is June 4th, 2012.  This should give you plenty of time to get your product/s ready and have them shipped in an affordable manner to our office (address below).  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss @ 714.842.9899.

If you don’t see a product category that fits what you manufacturer for the JK, please call us to discuss.  The software has no limitations, adding new product categories (Batteries, Drivetrain, etc) or sub categories is just a mouse click away.

Obviously all products are not created equal…meaning that there are some products that we just don’t need to actually install on the vehicle to become part of the Interactive Garage.  We will handle those on a product by product basis.  Call us to discuss if your interested in the program but not sure how your products will look, work, and function within the software.

Question:

Can I run the Interactive Garage Software on my companies website?

Answer:

Absolutely!  We will work with you and your IT team to see what is the best option for you to run the Interactive Garage custom program on your site.  Every site is different in design and development, so we will need to determine the cost and timing based on your current web situation.

Thank you for taking the time to review this new and exciting program from RCH Designs.
