There are many benefits of starting your own business and here are just a few :-

  1. You can choose your hours. Work part-time, full-time, mornings, evenings, weekends, after the kids have gone to bed or before they come home from school.
  2. You can choose your location. In your home, at a commercial location or within a retail outlet. Or, how about a mobile embroidery business that allows you to travel to exhibitions, fairs, festivals and special events.
  3. You can choose your income and profitability. Your income is directly related to the time and energy that you devote to your business. Since you’re the boss, you have control over your expenses and prices.
  4. You can even choose your customers! School sports, favourite pastimes, interior design, items for pets, corporate identity apparel, weddings, graduations, new babies, family reunions – the possibilities for selling your products are endless.

      Hello Cathie,
      We lease the PR650 for £199.00 per month, over 12 months. At the end of the lease period you can choose to pay the balance, start a new lease agreement or just stop the lease deal and we collect the machine.

  3. Jono says:

    Please can you tell me what you get with the lease.

    If I did go with your lease could you get the software and frame e.g. cap frame and the one to make sure you get the embroidery in the right place.
    Do you do a start up kit of all the materials needed.


    1. Alan Bamber says:
