- “Matching colors can be one of the most challenging parts of an embroidery job, as some customers can be picky about getting their logo colors exact.”
- “Embroidery doesn’t have to be a corporate logo on the left chest of a polo shirt or a name on a patch, although those types of embroidery can be lucrative jobs for any embroidery business. If a company wants to add a colorful, classic flair to their garments and swag, embroidery might be just the ticket.”

- “Making moves with your sublimation process using data analytics can help your process grow in many ways, including marketing your product, how much stock or supplies to have on hand, how many employees you need for production, how much equipment is needed, and more.”
- “Learn to become your own brand and marketing agent by using your data. It will help you cut wasteful spending and pack a punch with your marketing in the months and locations you market to.”
