Started many moons ago in an engraving/frame shop after 24 years in the Army. Began private business selling t-shirts until enough was saved to buy a laser engraver. Added an embroidery machine to do guidons, etc. for framing (in the frame shop). When a local shop went out of business, purchased the Signature Engraving System (diamond drag/etching) from the owner.
Somewhere in there, upgraded the laser, heat press & embroidery machine. Started exploring essential oils (love them! Who knew Lavender works for all kinds of burns? Heat press and I have an on-going conflict.) Purchased a printer for sublimation (think coffee cups, license plates, etc.) Latest adventure is a UV Printer which can print on dang near anything as long as it fits.
