You might think that getting an industrial embroidery machine is a bit frivolous, considering it only does one job (or so you think), but there are actually plenty of reasons why you should invest in this particular type of machine.
The tailoring business does not just entail stitching bits and pieces of material together; there will be customers who’ll be looking for embroidered items. If you think about it, the demand for embroidered items is quite huge. Companies often order promotional items with their logos stitched directly into the material as opposed to having them printed on; there is something about embroidered items that scream quality, something that companies want people to equate to them.
Another great thing about specialty embroidery machines is that they work fast. Sure, there is a certain kind of charm in hand-embroidered pieces, but that is simply not practical anymore, especially if you will be handling bulk orders. If you use any one of the modern embroidery machines available now, you only need to work out the design on a computer, program said design into the machine, and it will do all the work for you.
Yes, embroidery machines can be quite expensive, especially the industrial models, but they will actually pay for themselves in the end. If you really wanted your small tailoring business to grow and not just thrive then it is best to invest in a machine that does one job extremely well rather than an all-in-one machine that does several things somewhat well, but not good enough.
