Running a complicated piece of embroidery equipment is not for everyone. If you are an embroiderer, hats off to you for conquering this skill. Hats off to you for having the patience to figure it out and hats off to you for making this the cornerstone of your business. Embroidery is one of the classic, high end decorating methods that every one appreciates. But what about your customers who don’t want to pay digitizing fees and minimum quantity set up charges and basically want you to work for free? You can either work at a loss or send them elsewhere. OR you could expand your embroidery business to offer the service of heat printing, giving your customers lower-cost options (that have a high profit margin for you). Because if you can embroider, you can definitely heat print. It’s only about 50 times LESS complicated. You might already have a heat press sitting around somewhere, you know that one you use to flatten out your stitches or to assist in the twill applique process? If you own a heat press (or if you’re thinking of buying one), it’s time you learned how to use custom transfers, numbers, letters, rhinestones, stock transfers and more.
