Considering a Business in Custom Embroidery Designs

Because of quality software and time constraints, many textile producers are bringing custom embroidery designs in with their manufacturing services. Schedules are easier to control when all the work is done in house.

The one important question that each company has to deal with is, "Is it more cost effective to bring design in house rather than use online embroidery digitizer custom services?"

Depending on the volume of embroidery work, producing the work in the same facilities where the textiles are manufactured may be more cost feasible. The problem with implementation of anything new is the down time that is required during setup and tweaking of production procedures.

A Good Reason to Start a Business
For the eager entrepreneur, it is a good time to consider offering a design and embroidery service that can economically provide the service to businesses that are wavering on whether to get into the business themselves or keep sending the work to someone else. A small shop that is set up right can produce a product with much less cost outlay now than just a few years back because there is affordable software and hardware for custom embroidery designs. The small company can work with much lower overhead than big conglomerations can.

Problems and Concerns
There are some pitfalls and problems that have to be addressed when it comes to contracting with the textile companies. For one thing, an online embroidery digitizer business must contend with shipping costs to and from the factory, unless that part can be negotiated. Either way, it does go to the bottom line for the manufacturer.

A company that has been sending products out of house for embroidery services is already absorbing those costs, so it may be a non-factor for some manufacturers.

The most important problem to deal with after setting up an Embroidery Digitizing business is selling the business to potential clients. It can mean taking smaller jobs until a customer base can be established of high dollar clients. There are many jobs that come along for 50 or 100 embroidery emblems or renderings, and those can keep a company busy when first starting out.

Without a real track record, it can be difficult for the small business to have an opportunity to work with the larger textile manufacturers. It is often easier to gain a foothold in the business by dealing with aftermarket buyers for embroidery items or by investing in enough products to resell items with custom designs attached.

This is one setup that has worked for many years, just like screen printing of t-shirts and hats. Keeping the digitized artwork unique and commercial enough can provide enough work on its own with the proper marketing strategies.
