    Article follows:

    EmbroidMe, a world leader in custom embroidery, screen printing and promotional products, has selected Tampa Bay for its next wave of expansion, adding 20 new locations that are expected to bring more than 200 professional jobs to the area.

    It all began with Signarama, a custom brand signage franchise which has grown to more than 900 locations in 50 countries. In 2000, the EmbroidMe brand was added to create custom branded promotional solutions for businesses. With six different  brands under the United Franchise Group, businesses can grow their companies with brand solutions from outdoor advertising to convention planning to business brokerage and energy efficiency.

    "We specialize in helping business from advertising to being more green. A lot of times our franchisees work together on providing solutions to businesses," says Erin Crawford, VP of Development.

    The EmbroidMe brand has grown to more than 300 locations, with 200 in Florida and 15 abroad.

    As the economy experienced a climate shift in recent past years, the company decided to focus its growth plan on strengthening its existing locations for long-term sustainability.

    Now, the brand is opening up expansion and new franchise opportunities, centering its focus on the promotional products industry, which is one of the strongest forms of marketing for many businesses.

    "We are not just an embroidery company; we are a full-service promotional marketing solutions partner. We’re growing and expanding throughout the United States, specifically in markets where we see things picking back up," says Crawford.

    Over the next five years, EmbroidMe plans to add at least seven new locations in Tampa, four in St. Petersburg, and one in Clearwater. The new additions will call for up to five new employees per store which can grow to have up to 15 employees focused on production and sales.

    "We have a strong presence in this area and in this market, so we have a heavy growth plan for the bigger markets in Florida -- like Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and south Florida," says Crawford.

  • Selecting the Best Embroidery Designs

    Selecting the Best Embroidery Designs
    Embroidery can give any garment a custom and one-of-a-kind look. Whether you are ordering embroidered golf shirts for your staff or a customized jacket for your motorcycle club, there are many great embroidery designs to choose from.

    Embroidered Patches
    Embroidered patches never go out of style. Your retail partners can use patches for new club members and as recognition items. Whether you are looking for round patches with your organization's emblem or lettered patches with a custom message, you can't go wrong. You can order  embroidered patches with a plastic backing for easy sewing, or heat seal backing for iron-on use.

    Embroidered Jackets
    Custom embroidered jackets are popular with groups and organizations and make great gifts for new members.  Embroidered clothing sends a message of professionalism and credibility, and your organization can enjoy higher visibility with embroidered wear. Jackets are great for new fraternity and sorority members, sports teams and church groups. Whether you want to add a small logo on the pocket or add detail to the back, sleeves or chest, you can always find the right choice at the right price.

    Selecting Your Embroidery Designs
    The first step in selecting the right embroidery design is to determine what the item will be used for. Finding the right design for a jacket is different from embroidering a polo shirt or bag, so it helps to have a specific design in mind. The complexity of your design will be a major factor in the overall price of the item. Complex designs with multiple colors, images and fonts will make a difference in the final price. If you are ordering embroidered items for resale, consider the markup when planning your design.

    For over 13 years, EmbroidMe has been the industry leader in custom embroidered designs and apparel. With a commitment to quality and customer service, many businesses and individuals have come to trust the craftsmanship of EmbroidMe. With over 700 resource centers around the country, there is an EmbroidMe that can meet your needs.

    Our department of fully-trained on-site specialists can help you to design the perfect embroidered items, whether you are looking for hats, bags or other apparel. Our network of entrepreneurs are pros at what they do and share the EmbroidMe attitude of commitment to quality. Find a resource center and get started today.

  • Get a Great Return on Your Marketing Investment With Printed T-Shirts

    With all of the marketing choices at your disposal, it can be a challenge to figure out which one will be most effective at getting your message across. While the world has gone digital, there are some classic standby marketing techniques that stand the test of time. Promotional printed t shirts still remain one of the best ways to spread the word about your brand.

    Why T-Shirts?

    T-shirts are not only great advertising, they are also functional. Unlike a refrigerator magnet or a calender, a t-shirt is worn by your end user and serves a walking advertisement for your company. Not only will the wearer be exposed to your marketing message, so will everyone he comes in contact with. A t-shirt that is inexpensive to produce can spread your message of hundreds of people at the grocery store, laundromat, on a college campus and wherever that person travels.

    Most people have a favorite t-shirt in their closet that they have had for years. The right t-shirt can withstand extended wear and advertise your message over long periods of time. Imagine giving out one t-shirt today and that your wearer will still be wearing five years from now. You can't beat that return on your investment.

    Best Venues for Distributing Printed Tees

    Many companies give out t-shirts at grand openings, company events and trade shows. You can customize your shirt to include not only your slogan or logo but also your company's web address or phone number. Give out tees at the local college and your message will be visible to thousands of students daily. Printed tees are an economical way to promote brand awareness and increase your marketing efforts.

    Ordering Your Custom Printed Tees

    Getting the right tee is essential to effectively promoting your company. If the text on your shirt is too small, people won't see your message from a distance. Avoid going with simply a logo unless your brand is a instantly recognizable or a household name. Choose your colors wisely, making sure that your ideas on paper will translate well on a printed shirt.

    If you need assistance in designing your printed tees, the on-site specialists at EmbroidMe can help you to design the perfect shirt. With a network of entrepreneurs across the country, there is an EmbroidMe location near you. Locate an EmbroidMe resource center and get started on your printed t-shirts project today.

The same business could also benefit from products like reusable tote bags or promotional hats. Bags are used over and over again, ensuring that your message is seen by a wide variety of potential customers. Hats are walking billboards!

  • Using Corporate Apparel to Create a Professional Image

    The attire your employees wear can speak a great deal about your company as well as the products and services you sell. Customized corporate apparel can help project an image of professionalism. In addition, a unified look can help create an atmosphere of teamwork among the employees at your business and foster a sense of ownership and personal stake in the success of the company.

    A unified look can immediately identify your employees to customers, reducing the amount of time a potential customer would have to wait to receive assistance. For example, consider the iconic blue polo shirts and khaki pants worn by Best Buy employees or the easily recognizable red polo shirts worn by Target employees. If you don’t think apparel can leave a lasting impact on customers, consider what might happen if you were to wear a blue polo and khaki pants and visit a Best Buy store. Undoubtedly something like this would happen, although not nearly on the same scale.

    Custom apparel is an obvious choice in the retail space, but what about with more service-oriented businesses? Using corporate apparel to project a professional image can influence the public’s perception of your business. If your company takes pride in its appearance, then the perception is you will take pride in your work, as well. In service-oriented businesses this is essential; people trust your company and its representatives to enter their homes and businesses to complete a job perfectly and professionally.

    Your business’ apparel can range from something as simple as an embroidered polo shirt to a more formal dress code that includes embroidered clothing or custom screen printing. The right style can enhance customer interactions, inspiring employees to perform better. Your apparel choices can help your company’s representatives feel like they are part of the organization and create a workplace where teamwork is of paramount importance. Without a doubt, there are many factors to consider when selecting the right corporate apparel.

    At EmbroidMe, our network of professionals will work with you to design and create the optimal style for your business. Contact or visit your local EmbroidMe Resource Center to get started and find out what types of customized apparel and custom embroidery can help your business succeed.

  • Corporate Executive Opens Business to Promote his Passion: Buffalo

    August 26, 2013 (Buffalo, N.Y.) – For nearly 30 years, Edward Sullivan steadily climbed the corporate ladder in the food industry until he stood solidly as a national vice president of a multi-billion dollar global company. Then the longtime Buffalo resident took a surprising leap: This month, Sullivan launched a hyper-local business in a totally different industry. On August 23, 2013 EmbroidMe opened its doors at 23 Lafayette Square, Suite 106 in Buffalo.

    “My vision is to build a company that understands how to promote Buffalo, its companies, schools, teams, events, people, history and architecture,” said Sullivan. “I am passionate about our city, and I want to use this company to give back by instilling pride in Buffalo and helping it to grow.”

    Sullivan acknowledges that there are a number of companies selling Buffalo-themed products. But he feels that two factors give him a competitive edge: First, his business is a franchise of the world’s largest promotional products company: EmbroidMe. The significant buying power, and training and marketing support he receives from the international franchise system is unparalleled. Second, his focus on service, quality and community involvement is incredibly strong.

    “Many businesses promote Buffalo-themed products to make money,” he said. “I want to make money so that I can promote Buffalo. This is what I want to do with the rest of my working life.”

    Sullivan’s passion for the city is revealed in all of the choices he made when launching the business, which helps other organizations brand themselves and make an impression by customizing marketing products that feature a name, image, logo or message. He chose a location in the heart of downtown, in the historic Brisbane Building on Lafayette Square. Even the artwork on his walls features beauty shots of Buffalo.

    The St. Bonaventure alum spends his spare time as a volunteer tour guide with Buffalo Tours. He and his wife, Lynn Marie, a teacher and curriculum development specialist in the Hamburg Central School System are also collaborating on a Buffalo-centric project for students. The Orchard Park couple is developing a program to teach children about the city’s history and architecture.

    “Tight budgets have forced many school districts to eliminate such an important activity for our children,” he said. “We will provide funding toward the cost of the tours. Our curriculum will align with the history children will experience on their downtown Buffalo tour, and we will give it to schools that want to participate.”

    Sullivan plans to grow his new business quickly, and hopes soon to add more employees and produce a larger volume and broader array of in-house product offerings. Many might consider that ambitious for a start-up. But Sullivan believes that leveraging decades of success with business-to-business marketing and sales, coupled with the strength of EmbroidMe—which, he says, has the strongest and most professional image and support program in the industry—make his goals absolutely achievable.

    His determination is indisputable, and his investment echoes it. He and his wife bypassed debt financing, opting instead to invest their life savings to launch the EmbroidMe franchise.

    “This business is my retirement plan now,” said Sullivan. “It is a big risk; but we believe in Buffalo, and we’ll find a way to make it great.” With more than 300 locations in 12 countries, EmbroidMe currently has eight locations in New York and expects further expansion in the market, with plans to open 15 franchised units in the greater New York City area within 3-5 years.

    Nationwide, EmbroidMe plans to open 70 new resource centers through the remainder of the 2013, reaching 500 locations worldwide by the end of 2016. For more information, please visit www.embroidme.com

  • EmbroidMe Debuts in Jacksonville

    Local resident comes out of retirement to open new embroidery business with grandson

    August 15, 2013 (Jacksonville, Fla.)-- Philip Mobley, 59, wants to bring a little more personalization to Northeast Florida. Coming out of retirement, the Jacksonville resident will team up with his oldest grandson, Henry Williams, 20, to open EmbroidMe at 540-125 Commerce Center Circle on Aug. 27. The company is the world’s largest diversified promotional products franchise, helping organizations brand themselves and make an impression by customizing marketing products that feature a name, image, logo or message.

    “Since retiring from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida after 34 years, I’ve dedicated myself to helping non-profit organizations in the area and working with at-risk boys within the urban core of Jacksonville,” said Mobley. “Some of the men from the Northside Church of Christ and I founded a very successful night basketball program that was designed as a youth enrichment and mentoring program using basketball as a hook to get the boys interested.”

    WIN Night Basketball is in its eighth year and works with 50 boys – 95 percent of them have been promoted in schools and have stayed out of the juvenile justice system since starting the program. Mobley also serves as the executive director of a non-profit organization and the Duval Public Schools System. In addition to his volunteer work, Mobley is currently working on his PhD at the University of North Florida.

    “I started working with a non-profit at the end of 2008,” said Mobley. “When all the other non-profits were losing funding, I was able to increase funding levels of the Northside Community Involvement by 300 percent. I know that my ability to reach out to the community will help Henry and me build a very successful business with EmbroidMe.”

    Mobley and his grandson share a unique relationship: 10 years ago Henry’s father (Mobley’s son) was killed in a car accident. Since then, Mobley has raised Henry as his son.

    “Henry and I have a vision of growing this business to other areas within Northeast Florida that are underserved in the embroidery sector,” said Mobley. “We also strongly believe in giving back to the community and are positioning this company as a community outreach business. We will be implementing incentive and give-back programs for our community partners.”

    With more than 300 locations in 12 countries, EmbroidMe expects to open 70 new resource centers through the remainder of the 2013, reaching 500 locations worldwide by the end of 2016. The company currently has 17 locations throughout Florida and expects to double that number within five years, targeting markets such as Jacksonville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Cape Coral, Coral Springs, Miramar, Hialeah, Port St. Lucie, Hollywood, Miami Gardens, Orlando, Tallahassee, Pembroke Pines, Gainesville, and Clearwater for further expansion.

    Founded by franchising veteran Ray Titus, who along with father Roy founded Signarama in 1986 – which has grown into the world’s largest sign franchise with almost 900 locations in 50 – EmbroidMe specializes in embroidery, garment printing, custom apparel, promotional products, screen printing and personalized gifts. The company is the most comprehensive source for promotional apparel, premiums and advertising specialties for businesses, but also focuses on individual customers and their needs, delivering solid solutions to the branding and promotional challenges of businesses, especially small business.

    As testament to its success, EmbroidMe was recently ranked 20th by The Advertising Specialty Institute’s (ASI) Counselor magazine in its annual Top 40 Distributors listing, which recognizes the top distributors in the promotional products industry based upon the previous year’s gross revenue.
