About Us and Jamie Scott

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about us. I’m Jamie Scott, and when you come in to the store you’ll likely find me helping people with creating their ideal custom items. My husband, Richard, and I own More than Words, LLC and we’re a family-oriented business.

I have a passion for what I do and take pride in creating custom apparel and promotional products for our customers. This is not a job for me; it’s what I live and breathe. Making our customers happy is my biggest priority and you’ll see it come through in our work. Come on in and see for yourself!

Jamie Scott, Owner & Graphic Designer

I’m a Graphics Design graduate of Oliver Wolcott Technical High School. I grew up in Thomaston and moved to Torrington when I was 19 years old. After high school I worked for a silk screen company in Wolcott, CT as their graphic designer. I learned valuable skills while working for them, such as the digitizing process, silk screening and running embroidery machines. One of the most important skills I learned was how to run a business in the garment printing industry.

I’m also the President of the Northwest Business Referral group, a local business networking group that meets every other week in the Harwinton and Torrington areas. Please reach out to me if you have an interest in joining the group to help grow our businesses together.

He’s in the Torrington High School Athletic Hall of Fame and is in the Tri-State Baseball Hall of Fame. He’s a calibration technician and has been employed at Arconic in Winsted, CT for 20 years. We have a blended family with five children and many pets. Rich helps us out at More Than Words as often as he can.
