If you’re hanging around CenturyLink Field tomorrow night, you might spot Bob Morgan Jr., president of Redmond’s Washington Graphics.

He plans on visiting downtown Seattle’s Pioneer Square to hand out company-made Seahawks 12th Man banners and posters to fans who will be getting into the playoff spirit early.

Come kickoff time at 1:35 p.m. Saturday — when the Seahawks (13-3) will take on the New Orleans Saints (12-5) — Morgan Jr. hopes to have some of those 3-by-4-foot banners hanging from some of the railings inside the stadium.

In Redmond, a much bigger, 8-by-10-foot banner hangs on the outside of the Washington Graphics building on 151st Avenue Northeast.

The Redmond company clearly has Seahawks fever.

“Our motto is dream big, print big,” said Morgan Jr., adding that his company has come together with its Seahawks support just like the football players have gelled on the field.

“Russell Wilson as a quarterback — as a human being — is infectious. Pete Carroll is a great coach. They’re such a great story now.”

While Seahawks fans have embraced the Blue Friday tradition, Morgan Jr. said that Washington Graphics has taken it a step further with its mammoth banner and employees wearing Seahawks garb all week long.

“Blue Friday needs to step down, because now it’s Blue 24-7,” he said. “Ride that wave.”
