Company: JMH Graphics
Owner: Jason & Melissa Spiers
Year Established: 2005
Type of business: General apparel decoration – screen printing and embroidery.

Small Town Apparel Decorator Grows Business To Over A Million.

Hattiesburg, Mississippi is a city of just under 50,000 people in a little less than 50 square miles of land about half way between Gulfport on the coast and the capitol in Jackson. It’s also the town that JMH Graphics has called home since 2005, and grown from a $250,000 per year start up to more than 6 times that, from 4 to 14 employees and from an 1100 sq ft shop to a 5,000 square foot space.. PLUS warehouse facilities.

Jason Spiers, part of the husband and wife team that started JMH, spoke to ColDesi today about his business and his partnership with ColDesi over the years.


First of all Jason, tell us about your business and how you got started.

We started out buying a single head SWF embroidery machine and DTG Kiosk from ColDesi, or SWFEast back then. Don Copeland was and is still our salesperson, and we met the owner, Scott Colman. We were down in Orlando one weekend on vacation and Scott opened up for us we got a chance to see the embroidery machine in person, which was great.

But we started off first not having a machine at all and just taking orders and working with contract embroiderers and screen printers. Then when we had enough orders we bought the DTG Printer and Embroidery Machine. Within less than 4 months, we were so busy we traded in the single head embroidery machine for a 6 head machine!

Great story! So where are you now, still doing embroidery and DTG?

We actually JUST sold our SWF multi head machine and bought a 4 head and a 6 head Avancé. We loved the SWF, but actually like the Avancé even better. They were super easy to learn, especially after Sean (Sean Gaddeus, Avancé Tech from ColDesi) came to set it up. Our operators were up and running within and hour.

Our custom printed t shirt business has grown so much that we now have 2 automatic and 2 manual screen presses and no longer do DTG, we just don’t have time for smaller orders or samples.

Now we employ 14 people and I spend my time running the business instead of an embroidery machine.
