Other Local Companies
That's right... the competition!
Other local embroidery companies (yes, the competition) are often an untapped source of business. In many cases, someone you consider to be competition could turn out to be your best customer.
Most companies, no matter what their current size, started with a single-head embroidery machine that could produce only one garment or cap at a time. As these companies grow and invest in larger equipment, they often find it more profitable to contract out smaller, custom orders. Many find that a start-up, single-head operation is an ideal partner.
These established embroiderers can be found in your local Yellow Pages under "Embroidery." Call them; introduce yourself and then follow-up with a letter or a visit.
