Embroidery Business
« on: October 10, 2018, 11:21:57 PM »
Hello All!

My family has a big desire to get into entrepreneurship. My wife would like to pursue the Embroidery Business. I am willing to support in any business as I enjoy the operations side.

What kind business is out there? My wife is looking at custom baby items to embroider.

Any support/advice?

I have a home embroidery machine.  I have done small jobs:  names, initials, logos.  This is on fewer than six items.  With the type of machine I have, it takes a long time.  Customer would bring the goods and I would do the embroidery. 

If you are serious about doing hats and such, you would be happier with a pro machine.  These can be had for $10K or so.  I will tell you that the money is made in selling the "blanks" (shirts, hats, etc.).  The only model of doing this without a storefront that I have seen was a guy who traveled to alpaca shows and embroidered hats, shirts, and such on the spot with farm logos etc.  I think animal shows of any kind would be a place to do this. 

My embroidery business was in conjunction with doing alterations and window treatments. 

Hope this helps a little.
