Brand Recognition & Industry Leadership with Large Market Potential
The need for businesses to get noticed through brand recognition and advertising is more important than ever before.  As a result, this need to get noticed has propelled the embroidery and promotional industry to a US$50 billion market.  EmbroidMe has made an imprint in the industry as the premier ‘Promotional Marketing Partner’ for businesses and consumers around the world. 

Why EmbroidMe?
EmbroidMe has been at the forefront of this growth as one of the world's first embroidery and promotional products franchises, successfully franchising the full-service garment printing concept for over 10 years.  Entrepreneur magazine has named the EmbroidMe Franchise as the leading franchise provider of embroidery, promotional products, printed apparel and personalized gifts services and we have helped hundreds of people just like you find success doing what they love.

The most important decision in opening a retail business is site selection.  We carefully research all aspects of every new EmbroidMe site, such as traffic patterns and client potential.  After all criteria are met and a location has been selected, we assist you in the negotiation of your lease and the store build-out.  Once you feel comfortable with the site selection of your new store and all lease terms are finalized, we then prepare you for ownership and the start-up process.

Testimonials

I was writing to let you know my experience with Jessica when she was in my store on the technical set up. I found her to be quite knowledgeable and thorough. She had a list of what needed to be covered and made sure everything was addressed. In addition, she stayed well past closing time to help with the store set up which had only been partially completed. That was above and beyond what she was sent to do. I truly applaud her for that.Joanna Rykoff & Jean Zabriskie , Auburn, CA
Dear Randal Shirley, After my first 2 years as a Embroidme Franchisee with no field help and questionable so called help after that Michelle Longueira was a breath of fresh air. She has supported our store for the last 2 years and what a difference she has made. Coming from a management position I realize the difficulty of being in the middle and being required to wear two hats, one as a company person and one as a franchisee. She does this impeccably well. I find her to be dedicated, enthusiastic, reliable, and enthusiastic about her position and responsibilities. I could go on and on about Michelle. I am so glad we have her as our field support and UFG should be too.Pat Chapman , Cockeysville, MD
Good Afternoon! My name is Brandi Benson and I am the CAS at the newly opened EmbroidMe of Gulfport. I have had a really busy week and I am sorry that I am just getting a chance to Email you. I wanted to let you know how much I was impressed by Jessica! She was our cooperate trainer last week. She was extremely knowledgeable and sweet! What a great catch you all have there with her! Thank you so much for sending such a great girl to train us! I can’t imagine anyone better over there in EME Cooperate Land!Brandi Benson , Gulfport, MS
Randal, I Just wanted to send you a brief email to let you know about the always exceptional support we get from Michelle Longueira. I recently hired an ORS who will be representing both my EmbroidMe store as well as our neighboring Sign-A-Rama. We’re all very excited about the partnering synergy with our sister company as we market to the same customer base as a “One Stop” Branding source. Michelle and Bob Wakeley (for Sign-A-Rama) spent the better part of a day with us, reviewing our combined goals with our new rep, outlining the EME and SAR models, spending time on the road with our new rep making marketing calls (which turned into actual orders within just a few hours), and then provided us (the store owners) with ideas on how best to make this work. I can’t thank Michelle enough for her continued commitment to insuring we have the tools we need to achieve success. If and when we get there, it will be due in a very large part to Michelle’s guidance and support. Hold on to her with “white knuckles”.Jeff Houck , Cherry Hill, NJ
Good Afternoon, I wanted to take this time to e-mail you in regards to Jessica Shaw our EmbroidMe field representative. My brother Justin O’Donnell and I, have both the Sign*A*Rama and EmbroidMe brands. On the Sign*A*Rama side we have always had a reliable representative to contact with any questions and comments that we may have. However, we had really never had anybody to help us on the EmbroidMe side until now. Jessica Shaw has been amazing. Her suggestions, advice, and guidance with employees, production, organization, marketing among other items has been a tremendous boost to our business. We wanted to send this e-mail to let you know how wonderful it has been to have Jessica work with us and we look forward to working with her in the future as well. Thank youKevin O'Donnell , Schertz, TX
