In the early months of Summer 2016, our family found ourselves in an un-employed state. My husband was, unexpectedly, laid off from a very good job. This was a HUGE surprise to our family, as well as to him. He had worked as a top Executive for the company for 6+ years, and continually devoted long hours and extensive travel time, away from our family. As we often see in the business world, the company sold to Private Equity, and as a result, all the top executives were replaced. Just like that, he was out of work.
My husband and I have wanted to own our own business, and often discussed the many opportunities and options we might have. Unfortunately, with the busyness of everyday life and simply trying to keep up with our own jobs and parental responsibilities, our discussions and aspirations never quite reached any kind of reality.
During this time of unemployment, My husband and I were able to devote more energy and time into developing a business direction and plan. This is where and when BragleBe was born. Our second oldest daughter came up with the name. It is definitely unique, and the theory behind the name is this: You decide how, what, when, where, and why you want it to “Be”, and we’ll give you something to “Brag” about.
BragleBe’s purpose is to be an on-line based store which enables you to personalize, with embroidery, the soft things in your life, such as your apparel, accessories, décor items, pet supplies, and so much more. We hope to, futuristically, branch out and include silk screening, sublimation and DTG printing.
So, what does it mean to personalize? Personalization could be a name, logo, graphic, saying, phrase, design ….. It’s anything done with thread (or, in our future, with transfers and ink) to make your item more personal for you.
Our Goal: To make embellishment and personalization affordable, simple and unique. We want your clothes, handbags, towels, jerseys, pet accessories, or whatever else you can think of, to be exactly how you want them. If enough money is raised, we can purchase the necessary equipment and enhance our site to support the customization you’ve been waiting for. In all reality, we have started our business for YOU. If there is something you have in mind to personalize, please tell us! We want to do our best to give you something to “Brag” about. We want to make your ideas and creativity a reality for you.
In advance, I would like to thank you for your support. I speak for myself, as well as for my whole family, when I say: “Thank you for helping turn this dream of ours into a reality”. BragleBe has brought hope and excitement, to our family, during a time of stress and discouragement.
Please help spread the word and look for us on Facebook and Pinterest so you can see the latest and greatest with personalization, and maybe create something to “Brag” about.
