It’s cool to wear a personalized shirt, jacket, hat or shoes bearing your name, picture or favorite tagline. These personalized items are great for teams and clubs – with their names, numbers and nicknames emblazoned on them!
You’ll need to start with an inexpensive machine. Perhaps you could take orders from your local college and clothing stores. In the early stages, your orders will come mostly through personal recommendations from friends and acquaintences. Working from home allows you to keep your costs low, but as business grows, you will need to add on more sophisticated machines which will take up a lot of space. Unless you have loads of room in your home or you have an empty garage, you will need to think about setting up shop.
Having a shop of your own improves customers’ perception of your business and gives you a more professional image. Remember, embroidery work doesn’t have to stop with the customer walking out of your shop. The Internet virtually offers you the opportunity to sell to the whole world!
