Today we’d like to introduce you to Danielle Peralta.
Hi Danielle, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started Stitch With Bliss Co. in late 2020 out of a desire for more fulfillment. At the time, I was working full-time managing a lash salon in Las Vegas, and I found myself needing to do something to fulfill my time after work. I wanted to start working on something for me, something that I could enjoy and look forward to after a long day of work.
I remembered watching embroidery videos on Tiktok during quarantine and finding it so fascinating! I started doing research and threw myself into this new venture, not knowing what to expect. It was definitely a learning curve figuring out my machine and the best ways to produce high-quality work. I was so fortunate to have a lot of support from family and their businesses but also Las Vegas is filled with so many local businesses that it didn’t take long to find clients.
This became my everyday project after work and I LOVED every moment. It was definitely challenging juggling client deadlines and a full-time job. There were many late nights after work, doing bulk orders as big as 50-100 hats or jackets. My weekends became full workdays to keep up with the demand. Fast forward to my now fiance and I moving to Utah.
We’ve been here about 6 months and are enjoying the nice change of scenery from the blazing heat of Las Vegas. I’ve been able to help a few local businesses here in Utah with custom apparel and am excited to keep growing my small business to reach more people.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I would say the road has been pretty smooth because of the support I’ve received from my family and also my clients.
My business helps other small businesses promote themselves through customized apparel and it’s amazing how far our small businesses can go by supporting one another.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Stitch With Bliss Co. is a custom embroidery business offering embroidery and printing services on apparel, hats/beanies, tote bags, blankets, and more! We provide the pieces you’d like to customize and we also allow our clients to provide their own pieces.
I’m proud of the quality we provide in our finished products and how detailed our ordering process is. Once an order is placed, we communicate back and forth with the client to make sure the mock-ups are exactly what they are envisioning. From sizing of the logos to the colors and exact placement, we pride ourselves on “bringing your designs to life”.
Clients can expect the final product to look exactly like the mock-up they approved. We also pride ourselves on being fully transparent when we don’t think a design is doable or will look the best.
We also recently added a new custom service called DTG Printing or Direct To Garment Printing where we print directly on apparel, hats, etc. and this will last forever just like embroidery.
For bigger businesses, we offer a Dropshipping service where we pretty much do it all for you. We house your inventory, find the best wholesale packaging supplies for you, embroider your requested items, pack them up with personalized cards, and ship them off to employees and even company investors. This has allowed us to reach not only the US but we’ ship Internationally through this service.
It’s amazing to see our work travel that far! We are very excited to continue to expand Stitch With Bliss Co. and see where the road takes us on our venture here in Utah.
Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
During Covid, I didn’t have Stitch With Bliss, but I was so inspired by the app Tiktok. It really connected the world in a way that we saw the rest of the world going through the same thing and how they were coping.
Because of Covid and Tiktok, we learned that you can reach someone on the other side of the world and support them in their ventures. So many small businesses were also started because of Covid. It allowed people to take a break from their full-time job and discover their passion.
I watched a lot of small business TikTok and that’s how I thought about starting my own.
