"I have been running Epson's SureColor F2000 (white) DTG printer and have printed hundreds of shirts. There is no doubt in my mind that Epson has set a new standard for the DTG industry! The F2000 is my third DTG printer in six or seven years in the DTG business. It far and away outperforms anything else with which I have had experience. Along with Epson's UltraChrome Ink, the finished product is truly the best ever."

Quality embroidery designs are the centerpiece of a successful embroidery business. They set you apart from the competition and let you show off your skills and creativity.
But how does one go about creating top-notch embroidery designs, you ask?
Starting a t-shirt printing business is just like starting any other business. It requires research, planning, and passion, and some seriously hard work. But with the right elements in place, your t-shirt printing business will become a profitable investment that exceeds everyone’s expectations.
Here’s what every entrepreneur needs to start, run, and manage their own t-shirt printing business:
The right process
Direct to garment (DTG), screen printing, heat transfer—which process will serve you and your business best?
An embroidery business can be profitable within its first year through utilizing strategic marketing and high-quality equipment.
At Melco, we’ve seen the birth of successful entrepreneurs and have even been able to nurture these clients on their paths to success. We’ve witnessed firsthand how rewarding and fulfilling an embroidery startup can be.
If you are just starting your research into a possible embroidery company, then you may be looking into the differences between a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.
The two machines have a great deal of similarities but the fundamental difference is that embroidery machines allow for embroidery stitching, while sewing machines allow for regular stitching - also known as construction stitching.
The most popular question I receive from customers is "How do you determine what to charge for DTG printing?" Direct to garment printing is the cutting-edge of garment decoration and can easily justify a successful business with a single printer. DTG is fun, exciting, creative and just cool—but to run a successful business it’s all about the money.
Whether you’re at the beginning stages of launching a startup embroidery business, or debating on buying a second machine, it’s always a good idea to brush up on your definitions and the key differences between consumer and commercial embroidery machines.
