Hear from some of our partners in small business

“When my business first started, I was using a hand-me-down sewing machine from my grandmother that was older than me! It definitely got the job done, but it took me hours and hours to finish designs and fill orders. Throughout college, my business was mainly a hobby and I saved all of my money from orders. When I graduated college I decided to take a huge leap of faith and try to pursue my business full time in hopes of making it my career. I used all of the money I saved from my business during college to purchase my very first commercial embroidery machine, a Melco EMT 16X.

Not even a year later and my business now has 6 Melco EMT 16X machines and we are still growing. The Melco EMT 16X has changed my business for the better. I am able to create more products to reach my demand and expand into new product categories since my machines can do it all!”

Greek Letter Co
Texas Embroidery Ranch

Alex Burton and his brother started their company when Alex was only 14-years-old. Texas Embroidery Ranch makes high-quality custom apparel for businesses. With the EMT16X at his side and the help of his family, he was able to turn the family dream into a reality. 

“I’m delighted to be a part of the Melco family! Everyone has been so extremely helpful. I regularly attend Samantha’s DesignShop talks and even asked a question on some digitizing settings needed to make the onsite embroidery project run smoothly. Scott has also been a tremendous help on my numerous digitizing and DesignShop questions. Trainers, Ms. Margaret and Mr. Alan are really, so amazing! They have been extremely helpful in this embroidery business journey. They have been more than trainers. They have truly supported all our efforts to grow our small business.”
