Investing in a multi-head machine is a big decision. Purchasing the right technology can take your business to new heights and give you the stability to continue expanding your business. To help you get the most bang for your buck, we’re comparing conventional multi-head embroidery machines to the Melco Embroidery Network on a variety of factors.
Melco is proud to participate and sponsor a team for the 2019 JDRF One Walk at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds near Denver, Colorado. JDRF was established to help fight Type 1 Diabetes, a disease that affects about 1.25 million Americans. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness and help fund research for prevention and a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
As a screen printing or other apparel decoration business owner, it is very likely that at some point, you’ve had a customer request that you could not fulfill in-house. Maybe it was somebody looking for embroidered hats, or a little league coach requesting a small print order of 2 dozen dry-fit jerseys for his team. Chances are, you had to either refer that business to someone else, or outsource it, taking a big chunk out of any potential profit for the sale.
Melco is partnering with Panera Bread to help raise money supporting JDRF.
Order dinner at the Northglenn, Colorado Panera Bread (address below) on July 10th, 2019 between 4pm–8pm and join us in contributing to the worthy cause of finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes!
Exciting news! Melco has released a new embroidery font pack (also called "alphabets").
Here are a few key details:
Baseball-style hats are a classic look. Though many variations exist, and trends come and go, one thing remains true—they are as popular in fashion, sportswear, casual wear, promotional products, workwear, and teamwear as ever! For embroidery business owners, this means it is absolutely necessary to invest in embroidery machines that are capable of producing quality embroidery on hats in a commercial embroidery environment.
If appliqué or sportswear are part of your business now, or could be in the future, then this article is for you! Traditional appliqué techniques using tackle twill or other material is a classic, time-honored approach. HOWEVER, with Melco technology, you can grow beyond traditional applications, and add printed graphics to your appliqué designs. See this technology in action at the Boston Showcase June 21–22.
While walking through an art gallery recently and l looking at some of my favorite paintings, I was struck by the artists’ use of color and even their economy of stroke. I truly appreciate their work and often wonder how I can better apply those same concepts to my embroidery. Painters have some advantages with colors that embroiders, at least on the surface, appear to lack. They can mix and blend colors to achieve that perfect shade or hue. We who work in thread cannot… or can we?
