Have You Dreamed About Starting 
Your Own Business and Being Your Own Boss?


Like most people, at one time or another you’ve probably dreamed about starting your own business.  

Do you find yourself asking these questions?

• What is the best business to start 
• How do I learn the skills 
• Will I be successful 
• Will I like what I do

What Type of Business is Right For You?

One of the hardest parts of starting a business is deciding what type of business you want.

There are thousands of types of franchises, from restaurants to website construction. Franchises are very expensive, require that you lease retail space and they have ongoing royalty costs and strict regulations you must adhere to.

Not to mention, franchises usually require an immediate jump from your current employment/income to full-time within the franchise.  Including possibly hiring employees before you build an adequate customer base. 

A Service or Product Driven Business?
One of the first choices you must make is whether you want to open a business selling services or one that sells products or merchandise.

A service oriented business in one like an accountant, a mechanic, a plumber, an electrician, etc. Someone who sells their services for fixing problems or providing solutions. Obviously, these are businesses that require very specialized education or skills to be able to compete, so that is going to be part of your considerations also.

What skills or education do you have to open a business?

A product driven business is just what the name implies. Examples are mini-marts, specialty clothing stores, kitchen stores, furniture stores, electronics stores, etc.

The obvious problem with this business is the competitive nature of pricing. The last thing you want is to be in a business where you are faced with pricing your product as a commodity to compete with other businesses carrying the same product.

Both of these business types can also require large amounts of investment capital, expensive office or business space, and the hiring of employees.

In other words, a major investment in education, start up and operating capital, and time and energy. 

However, what if you could find a business that was a little bit of both?

How about a business that offered the best of both worlds • Offering a highly specialized service selling and producing highly customizable promotional products to businesses for their marketing and promotion.

Even better, what if this highly desirable business: 

• Required minimum investment capital
• Could be run from your home
• Required no expense for high cost business space
• Required no Employees, a simple one man or couple business

And, best yet, what if you could be up and running in a week with all the comprehensive training you needed to be successful?

A Simple and Proven Start-Up Business Model

Welcome to the fun and profitable custom apparel printing and promotional products business, one of the fastest growing and profitable business models to enter today. 

It is inexpensive to get started in and is highly profitable. And, best of all, it’s easy, fun and a very creative industry!

Over the years, promotional products and custom screen printing have been one of the steadiest, recession proof and successful business types around. Just think about it for a minute and look around you.

Custom printed t-shirts and logo products are everywhere! Just in your local area custom printing is done for youth sports teams and tournaments, club functions, fund raisers, family reunions, fun runs, all sorts of celebrations and events.

You probably have a stack of custom printed t-shirts in your closet along with a dozen pens and other assorted items around the house with company logos and phone numbers.

In 2011, the promotional product industry generated almost 18 billion dollars in sales according to the Promotional Product Association International-PPAI. 

And, bear in mind, these statistics don’t even include the small to medium short run sales that you could be making by producing and selling to your own community. In today’s economy, the smaller run orders are even more common and the people who are ordering custom printed goods are more inclined to look for a local source…you!

Who is Your Market and Where Will You Get Your Orders?
In Other Words, Who Do You Know?

The initial question everyone asks is, "Where do I get my customers."

That is also their initial fear. 

So often we hear this trepidation from our customers before they get started. 

Just think about it though, everywhere you look there are promotional products and apparel carrying a message. 

From the golf course to the office, from the church to the school, everyone is buying and using promotional products to promote their marketing message. 

The promotional product market is highly in demand and is extremely lucrative and profitable.

Just take a look at who buys these products and ask yourself who you know that works or is involved with any one of these businesses or groups. 

It really is a question as simple as: "Who do you know?"

Who Buys These Products?

• Sports Teams
• Schools
• Churches
• Event Planners
• Family Events (weddings, reunions, birthdays, etc.)
• Small Businesses
• Non-Profit Organizations
• Restaurants and Bars
• Real Estate Agents
• Title Companies
• Banks
• Doctors and Dentist Offices
• Car Dealerships
• Boat Dealers
• Automotive and Racing Clubs
• Fund Raising Events (Fun runs and walks, Festivals, etc.)
• Political Groups

Once you give it some thought, consider the people you know and the sports, promotional and event needs in your local community. You’ll probably find that, like most of our customers, you have orders to print and deliver before you even invest in the equipment to fulfill them!
