Have you considered owning a business in custom silk screening or embroidery in Cape Girardeau, MO? This may be a good time to consider it. Here is my story of how I got into this line of work. Everyone’s story is different, but here’s mine.
When I was in my mid-twenties and owned an asphalt business. It was back breaking work, but I was young and strong at that time. The company was profitable, but I needed to find a line of work that wasn’t dependent on the weather conditions. You see, asphalt work can only be done in the spring, summer, and fall when the weather is above freezing temperatures. Once the cold winter months settled in, my work came to a screeching halt.
One day while sitting at the shopping mall, I noticed the people passing me. The majority of these people had a tee shirt or baseball cap that was screen printed or embroidered. I thought to myself, “I think I could do those t-shirts.” I didn’t have the faintest idea what it took to print those shirts, but that day started my journey in the silk screening business.
I bought a cheap, broken down press for $75.00. I sold my first screen printing job. Fortunately, it was a simple one color job. However, I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. I wasted a lot of shirts on that job and others to follow. I just considered at as the cost of my education and the gaining of experience. Along the way, I had a few mentors that helped me with the business and today I have a very profitable custom screen printing and custom embroidery company.
