Business Tips Wednesday: Resources for your Embroidery Business

Starting a business is a large undertaking.  There are a lot of factors to be considered and a lot of things that must be done to make sure your business will succeed.  If you are starting an embroidery business, you also need resources and information that is specific to that sort of business.  Today I wanted to point you to a few places that might be of help.

Magazines

Two embroidery magazines that provide helpful information for commercial embroiderers are Stitches Magazine and Impressions Magazine.   Both magazines also offer e-mail newsletters and web sites which are full of tips and hints.

Embroidery Trade Associations

There are two main national embroidery trade associations.  The Embroidery Trade Association (ETA) and the National Network of Embroidery Professionals (NNEP) are both open to commercial embroiderers. 

Embroidery Forums

We have visited several forums over the past few months.  Our current favorite is T-Shirt Forums.com.   You can find information on this site about screen-printing, embroidery and how to sell what you make.  If you are searching for used machines, or have a machine to sell you might want to visit Digitsmith

Business Resources

While there are resources that can help you manage your embroidery business, you should never forget to attend to the small details that crop up in any business.  The IRS provides a web site which gives help with business tax law.   The Small Business Administration can be a valuable resource.   You may also want to consider finding a business mentor through an organization like SCORE.   Your local Chamber of Commerce may also be able to provide help.

Of course, EnMart is also ready to provide to our customers whatever help and information we can.  If you have any questions, please fell free to contact us or leave your question in the comments for this post.

    I hope you don’t mind if I add that embroidery email lists such as ELine, Elist and software and machine groups such as Pulselist and Tajima Users list can be extremely helpful.
