    Additional decorating services

    What other types of apparel decorating services do you all offer? Screen printing, DTG, sublimation etc. And why did you pick that style or brand? I'm looking to expand again so I'm starting my research! Thanks to any advice!

    I do vinyl cutting and heat press. I do tons of hats with heat pressed vinyl. You can also do sublimation if you already have the heat press. Printers are fairly cheap (ink is expensive), paper is cheap. If you have a vinyl cutter, you can make rhinestone templates.

    I bought a color laser printer and print on special paper to do full color heat pressed designs.

    Actually I now hate embroidery and love doing heat press. Make a lot more $$ with it too.

    What kind of color printer did you get? And what kind of software did you have to learn to use?!

    One of the neatest things I have been doing is cutting material backed with permanent heat press adhesive. I cut the word Aloha and it will iron on a shirt. Vert cool.

    I only sell to customers who come to me. Word of mouth works surprisingly well here in Kona. I have groups of customers that are all related. I am a terrible salesman! Really terrible - except when they come to me, then I can wax on forever!

    She'll cover the cost for me....
    Excited to see them...

    In addition to embroidery, I offer DTG, vinyl cutting (both garment & sign), rotary engraving, dye sublimation (get transfers), screenprinting (transfers) and my newest addition, laser cutting/engraving. Absolutely love my laser. It has so much potential.

    What kind of DTG do you have? I offer embroidery and screen print transfers right now. but I'm trying to find a way to offer full color logos that aren't super expensive with really high minimums.
