My sister and I started this business after we moved in together. We do fairs and festivals reaching out to others that like the custom tye dye look. We started with the kits then moved into the really nice professional dyes which caught a lot of peoples eyes. Our brother now has a way to get his own custom tye dyes as he can just let us know what he needs. Its funny most of our family now all each own at least one of our tye dye shirts or hats or sweatshirts.
We are trying to raise up the money so that we can expand our business. We need more dyes more shirts and other garments to branch out our inventory. We have festivals that we are going tobe at and we need to be able to have the inventory on hand to hand them. We also want to be able to send them anywhere in the country and even abroad.
Add in not only do we do our own tye dyes we also customize them if they want lettering on them with vinyl. We had a cutter and heat press both have been used so much we need to find a way to either fix them or purchase them new. We have been told we have a very unique company and that they hope we do much more.
Risks and challenges
One of the risks we have encountered with our business is not having enough inventory when others ask for things. Like this latest fall we did not have enough sweatshirts at our booth and we ended up losing sales because of it. If we had enough sweatshirts and other apparel we would have been able to fulfill our customers needs.
