Should you hire a consultant?
The garment decorating industry has a lot of well seasoned consultants
who can help your business be more productive and profitable. On the
surface a consultant’s fee might appear high but when you look at the
lifetime of experience they bring and how they can actually change your
life in a matter of days, it is well worth it.
Consulting is available from the owner of Independent Print Supplies, Mike Fresener. Mike was literally born into this industry. He is an excellent
printer who knows every phase of the entire process. Mike taught
classes at the U.S. Screen Printing Institute for a number of years and
has been featured on many Videos/DVDs on the process. You can see some
of Mike’s work on this site under Videos.
Mike consults screen print & direct-to-garment startups, and
small and medium size shops on topics ranging from equipment choices,
shop layout, screen making, proper ink usage, press setup, production,
heat transfer making, online marketing, and more. He is also an expert
on specialty printing including jackets, caps, puff ink, glitter, and
oversize prints. Mike is considered an expert on direct-to-garment and
was instrumental in the development of the T-Jet line of printers.
Mike is located near Louisville Kentucky. His consulting rate ranges
from $500 to $1,000 per day depending on the project. You can reach Mike
