ColDesi to host 'Bling Business' show on Aug 9
Jul '13
ColDesi, Inc., the country’s premier experts on apparel decorating equipment, software and the custom t-shirt business, is holding its first Bling Business Show at its headquarters in Tampa, FL on August 9th. “Bling Business” means adding Rhinestones, or “Bling”, to t-shirts, cheerleading uniforms, and sports fan t-shirts, high fashion and high school booster apparel. This aftermarket t-shirt business is incredibly popular, with Rhinestone sales jumping almost 40% just this year according to the company.

Alex Duran, Sales Manager for ColDesi, reported that many of their customers are first time business owners working from home or small shops, and ColDesi developed the Bling Business Show with those people in mind.

In addition to ongoing equipment demonstrations, ColDesi will be hosting 3 presentations on the hardware, software and marketing necessary to start or add to your custom t-shirt business. The first presentation will be by a ColDesi customer that grew from one CAMs Rhinestone Machine to being one of the largest rhinestone transfer sellers in the world. Other presentations include demonstrations of Rhinestone design software from Sierra and local and online marketing strategies by Mark Stephenson, Director of Marketing for ColDesi.

Products to be demonstrated include; CAMS Automatic rhinestone transfer systems, the new ProSpangle spangle transfer machine, both used in the Bling business. DTG direct to garment t-shirt printers and SWF Embroidery Machines will also be on display. 

Colman and Company, the supply arm of ColDesi, Inc. will also be demonstrating their entry level, plotter based Brush n Bake system for making rhinestone transfers and t-shirts. The Brush n Bake system is an inexpensive, but professional rhinestone template system very popular with start ups and home based businesses. Colman and Company supplies Hotfix rhinestones, transfer paper (Hotfix tape) and rhinestone decal material to custom t-shirt businesses around the world, and is also headquartered in Tampa, FL.
