Company History

Embroidery has been around for hundreds of years, but until EmbroidMe, it was difficult to find a store that could handle all your custom embroidery, screen printing, and promotional product needs. In addition it was hard to find one that could do so personally, professionally, and punctually. This reality intrigued franchising veteran Ray Titus, who realized that the $20 billion embroidery industry could use some of the same expertise and initiative he had already applied to building SIGN*A*RAMA, the world's largest sign franchise with over 700 locations in 37 countries.

In 2000, Ray Titus opened the first EmbroidMe store in West Palm Beach, Florida, a full-service showroom that combined a wide variety of apparel and promotional items. It was an immediate success.

Since then, EmbroidMe’s network of entrepreneurs has grown to more than 300 resource centers throughout the United States, Canada and Australia, making it possible for many thousands of organizations and businesses to easily and cost-effectively get the customized apparel and promotional products they need, whether it is on a local, national or global scale.

Today, EmbroidMe stores have become the brand name people trust for quality embroidery and customized specialty products, not to mention a proven successful franchise ownership opportunity for prospective entrepreneurs.
