Getting the Most out of Your Start-Up Business Investment.
What’s Holding YOU Back?
There are a few common reasons people hesitate to get started in the custom t-shirt business. Each reason is the result of a FEAR of something:
“I won’t be able to learn how to use the equipment.” We provide free training programs for all of our machines, and you can take refresher training anytime.
“I’m sure I can’t afford it.” Custom t-shirt printers and embroidery equipment are VERY affordable compared to most small business startups – and there are financing/leasing companies that work specifically with our customers.
“I’m afraid that I just won’t be able to sell enough.” This fear was one of the most common holding some customers back! That’s one reason we developed the Print n Stitch Package in the first place.
The Pantograms Print-n-Stitch bundle is the best of both worlds. It’s a combination of the two most successful custom t-shirt decorating methods; Embroidery and Printed T-Shirts. By combining two lucrative business opportunities into one reasonable payment, you give yourself more opportunity up front to make enough.
There are no delays here, no dipping your toe in the water with this bundle, starting out with both machines gives you twice the chances to succeed. Before you even get your equipment, you can reach both markets.
Embroidery Work is Long Lasting and Stable
There’s an incredibly big market for embroidery. It’s a great place to get started. Embroidery is the first and longest lasting, most consistent decorating methods available. Tried and True, once you tell others you have an embroidery machine, the work will begin to push itself to you. That’s just the way embroidery jobs come in.
The Avancé 1501C professional embroidery machine is perfect for creating all sorts of professional looking custom logo wear. You can make embroidered caps, personalized apparel, baby clothing, bags, sashes, bridal accessories and everything else that inspired you to look at embroidery as a business.
T-Shirt Printing is Popular and Exciting
The other side of the custom apparel spectrum is T-Shirt Printing
Think about how many printed t-shirts you see in your everyday life, and you’ll have an idea of the scope of the market. That’s why the second part of Print-N-Stitch is the Digital Heat FX custom t-shirt & personalized items printing system.
While embroidered Polo shirts and uniforms are the bread and butter of corporate apparel, custom printed t-shirts are what catches the consumers eye. Custom t-shirts are what fits the bill for hundreds of applications including:
Charity Runner T-Shirts
School Spirit T-Shirts
School Uniform Polos
Medical Outfits & Uniforms
Lawn & Fertilizer Companies
Police and Fire Departments
Jackets and Jerseys
Why Purchase Both?
So how does the Print-N-Stitch system make it much easier to earn more money in your new business?
Here’s what happens… and existing embroidery businesses already know this. For almost every customer, online inquiry, or prospect they meet will likely want to buy something that they can’t yet do.
That Little League order for 24 embroidered baseball caps – they asked about shirts with the team mascot on them, 8”x10” on the front and numbers on the back.
The company polo order when they asked about doing printed tees for a weekend event
A local car dealership that bought the mechanics uniform embroidery from you but has a dealership charity run and needs 60 printed tees.
But every embroidery pro knows that the minute you tell people you can do custom apparel, they’ll start asking you for custom PRINTED t-shirts too!
How would it affect your new business if each one of these new customers looking for embroidery ALSO purchased printed tees from you? How would that affect your bottom line?
Those 24 Little League caps would not only generate the 24 team shirts, but you’ll probably sell at least 24 fan shirts to the families.
That weekend event for your Custom Polo client might happen every quarter. So you can expect four orders every year.
The 60 t-shirts you did for the charity run might catch another team’s attention and turn into 120 next time.
You’ve more than doubled your order WITHOUT having to find a new customer!
Don’t Let This Happen to Your Business
In fact, many of our = veteran screen printing shops are adding embroidery because of the hot demand. They’re tired of sending that profitable business to someone else
Consider the t-shirt printing company that gets the call about doing sports jerseys for an entire school system. Wow! Excellent order. But then the order dries up shortly after the school system asks for a quote on embroidered uniforms. They realized they need embroidered polos for all their maintenance staff. Where did the profitable t-shirt order go? What happened?
What if that some company gets an order from a landscaping company for seven shirts each for each of their field personnel and then must send them to an embroiderer when they want to order caps and embroidered shirts for their salespeople?
T-Shirt printers who don’t own an embroidery machine are also missing out by not offering embroidery!
Maximize your Opportunities
The bottom line is: Print and Stitch allows you to maximize every opportunity that walks through your door by capturing ALL their business.
That means you have the potential to make twice as much money from every phone call. Twice as much from every email or chance meeting, twice as much from every referral.
THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE TWICE AS MUCH FOR EVERY DEAL YOU SELL!
Your customers will be even more likely to contribute to making you successful because you save them time and the hassle of looking for multiple vendors. They will talk about your more, refer more people to you and come back the next time.
The great news is that T-shirt printing, and Custom Embroidery is not the only thing your Print-N-Stitch package can product. There’s a third way that Stitch N Print can help propel you into success, and we call it “The Heat Transfer Advantage.”
The Heat Transfer Advantage | Your Highway to an Enormous Market

Heat transfer technology, which is what powers the printing half of the bundle, can do much more than t-shirts! Imagine offering any of our sample customers in the scenarios we’ve outlined so far with:
