Hello. My name is Lisa. I am in business with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. I have been told our company is a minority because it is owned by three women. We decided to go into the screen printing, heat transfer and embrodery because the t-shirt business in our small town of less than 950 decided to sell thier business; I did not want to see the business leave our town and the old owners really wanted to business to stay in our town so we all worked out a deal. At the time of purchase, I could not tell you the difference between screen printing or heat transfer. I had no idea there were so many types of t-shirts and that each company had a different name for the same color. The second screen print job I did was a six color job on the back of a t-shirt. I made four shirts before heading to a screen printing class to learn how to do it right. I must add that those first shirts look awesome but I knew they could be improved. I made 60 of those first shirts and everyone sold out and I am making more now. I have learned a lot but I have a lot more to learn. I had to learn windows 7 and corel draw in 30 days. The best part about owning a business in a small town is that the old owners will help with their knowledge and I also have the opportunity to do business for all of their old customers. We opened our doors in April and I have been none stop with orders, designs and proposals. I do it all currently and at times think I may need to get help. I do have the help of my three kids and husband plus the other business partners but when it comes right down to getting it done - it is all me.
Thanks for listening and I hope to get to know lots of 'old timers' who can give me some tips and hints. Oh, the name of our business is River Village Designs.
