We realized that our local area had no single-source shop to get Embroidery work, screen prints or banners. We had to go to 3 different businesses and, in some cases, all over town for what we needed. For example, when we needed a sandwich board graphic for a Helicopter event, we went to the UPS store, but we had to subcontract the graphics to an online source. It was not a very quick turnaround. We then needed embroidered polo shirts and future jackets, when two local vendors claimed to be shirt experts and embroidery pro’s. We soon learned one was a false front and outsourced everything to Dallas, while the other could not figure out how to digitize our logo for embroidery. With all this, we had already jumped into the custom world with our Mimaki Printer/Cutter machine. And by the way, this Mimaki makes amazing, vibrant banners, stickers, posters and sandwich board decorations.
