Rockville, VA (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
Launched earlier this month, EmbroidX.com has quickly become one of the internet's most user-friendly, complete guides for embroidery-related goods and services. As a global embroidery market exchange, EmbroidX caters to the needs of consumers, entrepreneurs, and businesses.
For the consumer, it is the most comprehensive directory of local and national custom embroidery, screen-printing, apparel decorator, and promotional product retailer links on the internet. The United States map on the home page provides an intuitive navigational interface for the online business-to-consumer (B2C) directory. Consumers can click on a state to view nearby commercial embroiderers (names, addresses, business description, and hyperlinks). Embroidery retailers are listed by city with the top 150 Metropolitan Statistical Areas represented.
"Our mass customization, long-tail culture has created an explosion of demand for customized specialty products," said EmbroidX spokesman Ward Rimme. "Individuals want to express themselves uniquely through personalized, "one-of-a-kind" t-shirts, hats, apparel, and other fashion statements. Custom embroidery and screen-printing allows people and organizations to be, in essence, their own brand. Our job is to match those folks with businesses."
As EmbroidX becomes a trusted and reliable guide for buyers of customized apparel, businesses, both big and small, can greatly benefit by listing themselves on the directory at no cost. Free directory listings include a hard hyperlink for search engine optimization as well as space for free marketing text. Paid banner advertising is also available.
Business to Business (B2B) Directory
In addition to promotional and marketing benefits, businesses can also take advantage of Embroidx's robust directory of business to business (B2B) services. For the entrepreneur looking to enter the dynamic $50 billion embroidery industry and for established businesses, EmbroidX provides comprehensive resources, including information and links to custom embroidery vendors, manufacturers, and suppliers. Sections in the B2B directory include Publications, Trade Associations, Embroidery Machine Manufacturers, Software Vendors, Blank Clothing, Thread Suppliers, Trade Shows, Franchises, Books, Digitizing, and Outsourcing.
Like the consumer version, vendors who service the embroidery industry can be listed on the B2B directory at zero cost.
