How To Increase Your Embroidery Production
If you have your own home-based or small embroidery business, you know that you can always improve your process. As your business grows, you need new and improved ways of producing your embroidered products. Save time and increase your profit with these tips to increase your embroidery production.
Organize your workspace
Make sure that each of your workspaces are optimized to save steps in your embroidery production process. It even helps to have duplicate tools. For instance, keep a different pair of scissors at each station of your production process in which you may need them. Keep a pair with your backings and also keep a pair by your embroidery machine, to trim off those loose ends.
This may be a no-brainer, but the cleaner you keep your workspace, the smoother your production process is!
Store your threads by color
Organizing your embroidery thread by color saves you time in your embroidery production process, especially when you have a big order or just a lot of thread. You don’t need to waste time searching for the right thread! Keep them organized by color and in a storage container that makes them easy to look through and grab when you need them. You’d be surprised how much of a time-suck your embroidery thread can be!
Organize your backing by size
When you order your backing, it’s easier to order it in cut sizes and then organize them in your production area by those sizes. When you’re embroidering for multiple different clients, you’ll need various sizes of backing. If you prefer the savings you get buying backing by the roll, then take some time at the beginning of your work week to cut out specific sizes of backing and then organizing them ahead of time. Prevent any unnecessary delays during your embroidering process by spending a little more time in preparation.
Essentially, keeping an organized embroidery space is the key to an efficient process. You can find more, fun ways to organize your embroidery supplies here.
