Who Needs Retirement?
Embroidery, DTG and Bling Success

Vince and Lori Botkin have become an apparel decorating power couple after looking for a post-retirement business to start in 2014. Read how they leveraged word of mouth, Unions and multiple decorating techniques as a niche market to propel their success.

Tell us a little about who you are and what you do.

Lori and I both retired last year in August 2014. As we were getting close to retiring, I was building the office in our 1800 sq. ft garage knowing that we were going to be doing something out there.

We thought about printing T-shirts and was looking at the manual machines when someone told me about DTG printing.

We went onto the web and found ColDesi. We left an email and Scott Levine promptly returned with a phone call. We had a lengthy conversation about the different machines, prices and options. During our conversations we brought up embroidery machines and Scott promptly sent us lots of information about different machines, functionality and pricing. 

What was your biggest hurdle in getting started? 

Overcoming the fear of investing a lot of money into a market that we had never been in.

How do you decide what Markets to go after? 

It started with family and friends giving us positive input on groups they were involved with and the need for custom shirts and embroidery. Once we got going, we had professional BBQ teams calling us for shirts. Then we went after our union market. That so far is our best market.

What technologies do you use?

What our Customers Have to Say
I just wanted to take a min. to say,"Thank You." I know it took us a while to make up our minds but we really believe we made the best choice. Carcine is running full speed right now and he's so in love with the digitizing program. He really didn't think it would be this easy to get up and running and every time he call or emails Sean, he always get the right answer to his question. He's pushing to become a 4 head business by this time next year so he can get the 100% trade-in. You and the staff at ColDesi have been a Dream to work with. You guys really made us feel like family and we look forward to a very long relationship with your company. Again, thanks for everything.

Can I fill u in on something I learned yesterday? TIM RYU IS THE MAN!!! Very knowledgeable, very patient with me, extremely hard worker and wouldn't even take a tip I offered him. U guys have an awesome employee. He is great. Very polite. A great guy all around. He even helped me to understand Photoshop which he totally didn't have to do, but he got done early and said he wanted to make sure I can make money. I'm so grateful he came.
