21 Ways We Are Helping You Grow Your Apparel Business in 2018
Once a month, we have a live webinar that teaches how to grow your apparel business. This month, we featured 21 things we’re doing to help you do just that.
Before we get into what we discussed this month, we’d like to talk about the webinars in general.
Most of you are busy running your business and don’t have time to attend them live. That’s more than okay! Our suggestion is to register anyway. That way, you will receive an email with the recording of the webinar and the slides from the presentation. Otherwise, it’s easy to forget to go back to YouTube or our website to look at them later.
On the right-hand side of the blog, you will see a box showing the next available webinar. There may be a couple of day delay between when the last webinar completed and the new one goes up, but keep an eye on that part of the blog and register while it’s on your mind.
Okay, let’s get into the 21 things! (If you prefer, you can watch the recording of the webinar at the top of this post or look at the slide deck at the bottom.)

- 11 amazing new fonts – including the on-trend Magnolia Sky.
We’re kind of over-achievers over here, so we really have 2 more cool things to tell you about.
Coming next month, we will have a Lower Heated Platen available to you. It fits most models with allow for interchangeable platens in the Hotronix line. Because heat is being applied from both sides, transfers can go on at a lower temp – making performance wear a breeze. No more scorching!
And on equipment upgrade theme, Fusion IQ will also be available in the coming month! Think of it as your new business partner. See all of the metrics you need to – who pressed what job, how many impressions were done, you name it — even when you’re on vacation!
