(WMC-TV) - Growl Towels are a symbol of Grizz Nation, and are seen waving on televisions across the county.

The makers of the iconic towels work out of Nashville. "Something Inked" said it is an amazing feeling to watch their creation on national television.

More importantly, the printing company's president, Oliver Landry said he is stunned watching thousands of fans in the FedExForum wave their flag in person.

He is proud to be part of Memphis and the Grizzlies and said their business has a lot in common.

"Its been great, we've had our ups and downs, we've gritted and grinded through it just like the Grizzlies have," said Landry.

The creators said there are just a few secrets behind making the growl towels, but they cannot share them.

So far in the 2013 playoffs alone, Something Inked has printed close to 750,000 towels with less than 50 employees. Roughly 125,000 towels have been printed for the Grizzlies playoff games so far this year.

The newest growl towels just wrapped up being printed Thursday, and will be ready for the Grindhouse Saturday.
