Retired Teacher Finds Profit and Satisfaction With Her Second Career in the Promotional Product and Screen Printing Business.
Too young and energetic to retire completely, this Edmonds WA teacher decided to look into providing her community with a local source for decorated apparel, screen printed t-shirts and promotional products and called Printa Systems to help find the best solution for her needs.
The 770 Series Deluxe Plus System along with the Artwork Solution Package was the perfect fit as it included everything she needed to get started. With the addition of the 550 Tunnel Heat Press and vinyl cutter, she was fully prepared to service the apparel and lettering needs of school sports teams and other local events. With the hands on training Printa provides with every system, she was comfortable with her technical abilities but she still had one bit of apprehension. As a teacher, she was extremely confident in her abilities over the years to teach students new subjects but found she had limited sales and marketing skills and was intimidated about what it takes to run a small business of her own. Her Printa representative introduced her to the Partner Plus Program. This program is designed for start up businesses that are looking for a higher level of support. It includes business skills and marketing tools along with exclusive promotional product industry connections and memberships that give an established business presence from day one.
The Partner Plus Program and training from Printa helped give her the confidence and overall professional business image to not only approach and gain screen printing customers from the contacts she had but also to branch out and to find new ones. She and her family are avid sports people and today she is busier than ever printing t-shirts and providing promotional products for fun runs, cycling events, community festivals and has done some commemorative t-shirts for large local aerospace companies. She never thought she’d be so busy and have so much fun creating a profitable business and she thanks Printa for the partnership to make that success a reality.
Printa Systems offers complete solutions for start up business and existing companies interested in adding textile screen printing, pad printing, cylindrical printing and dye-sublimation heat transfer equipment.
