Quality, Quality, Quality
We’ve all heard with real estate, it’s all about location, location, location. With embroidery and custom apparel, it’s all about quality, quality, quality.
After a few mishaps where a couple of garments were sacrificed to learning, I do understand the value of quality. I wouldn’t wear something that was less than what I would expect with regard to customized apparel; I wouldn’t expect others to. This week was all about slowing down and making sure the garments I was working on had center lines and good design digitizing. The creativity came in with design color choices.
I spent so much time in post production, making sure that all threads were snipped, the backing was cut or torn off accordingly, and that the topping was all removed that I ended up dreaming of orphan threads haunting me. At the end of this week, however, I know my designs and the time taken to ensure a quality product will produce results and achieve future orders.
Take the time to create a final product worthy of your brand and your reputation. It will serve you well in the future!
