Hi, I am a self employeed entrepreneur and have been running my own online businesses since 2005. I started with just a pc and managed to turn nothing into something !
My Design business 2cooldesign.co.za got me started and i do a lot of freelance desinging for various clients from around the world. After my studies from 2001-2004 I wanted to get a job and start earning a living, but was constanlty put down and turned away, so i decided to go on my own and do my own thing...
My other online business is tshirt printing business: tshirtprinting.co.za , I got myself 2 pieces of equipment and have been using them for several years now and compete with big time t-shirt printing companies. All from a 'garage basically' well a bedroom. My entire operation is run from my pc and a bedroom...
My website sits on page 1 for google.co.za for search term ' tshirt printing' I get all my work over the net.
The problem i'm facing is that various jobs i can not do myself and have to outsource the work, this increases the price and i loose a lot of work.
I recently discovered this cool machine that cost under $10 000 in dollars for th A3, the starter machine cost +/- $4500. I will pay out my pocket what i can, but seriously need some finacial backing to ease the burden..
The funds i gain, will be used to purchase this machine A3 if i can raise over $8000 or if i can raise $3500, i will get the smaller machine A4, with consumables, paper / ink and any extra I will be putting $ into marketing and expanding my online shop too!
I need this to grow my business and offer in house full colour transfer printing !
You can view my website tshirtprinting.co.za,
i've been at this for a long time now, i havn't just started this yesterday !
I compete against big companies with huge pockets and i'm a 1 man show doing everything from emailing to printing, My wife helps me with various printing we do, but eveything is on my shoulders.
I'm the bread winner in the family and i have a little girl(2years now) Whom i take care of too, so we got our hands full :)
I would love it if i could just get a kick start with this one piece of equipment which will really help me grow my business !!
Please visit my google+ page too, to see what i do and what i post: +GuyTaskerDesign I'm attaching some of my work here too :)
This job, I had to outsource the colour printing, the text, i did myself with vinyl..
Just imagine what cool shirts i can offer, if i have the right equipment.
I also have gone far enough to setup my own shop, but can't offer full colour printing right now, because i can't print full colour on demand.. i can only do some printing on demand..
Something similar to customink.com, I have the website setup, just need the equipment to go forward & be even more succesfull !
Please can someone assist me :)
Some Angel funders out there, i know will help me,
