Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: GGC Embroidery, aka Grams Gift Closet!
New B-Town Blog Advertiser GGC Embroidery–Grams Gift Closet–is on a mission; that is “to provide small businesses in the areaÂ the opportunity to brand and logo in the same manner as a mid to large size businesses at a lower cost,” so says owner/operator Jeananne Tescar-Burcham.
With this mission in mind, Jeananne created her small business from what was once a hobby. She specializes in personalized-custom embroidery and logo items for local sports teams, companies, families and individuals. Her closet of logo-wear includes sweatshirts, polar fleece, polos and hats.
Jeananne and herÂ husband have had aÂ 20+ year association with, and love for, the Highline Schools where they have worked and volunteered. It was during thisÂ timeÂ that Jeananne began her “hobby job” embroidering HHS warm ups.
“I saw how the coaches were paying exorbitant amounts for set ups, and small orders,” she said. This is why GGC is proud to offer a no set-up charge, no matter how small the order is. “We’ll do one-ups, there’s no minimums,” she added.
New guy on the team? Need a single item? Not to worry with GGC Embroidery, where Jeananne has set up a unique team and company store on her website for individual schools or businesses who want to order what they want when they want it.
And why would a woman with no grandchildren name a business “Grams”? After her own grandmother of course!
“My grandmother had a quote that inspired me after being laid off from Washington Mutual and making the decision to start the business in a less than friendly economy:
“You can accomplish anything you set your mind to.Â It is like the light at the end of the tunnel; it isÂ there.Â You may have to kick a few rocks out of the way to find the light, but it is there.”
In her first full year in business Jeananne has “kicked a few rocks” but she is seeing a dramatic growth in her customer base with over 200 satisfied customers in the Burien and greater Seattle area;Â and an A- rating from the BBB.
When it came time to order some new shirts for our sister site The Waterland Blog, we asked our good friend Wayne Corey of the Des Moines Farmers Market “who does your branded clothing?”Â He strongly recommended GGC Embroidery for their service, quick turnaround and embroidery work.
After several very prompt emails, and a visit to her sunny in-home studio in Burien, we quickly had a new “official clothier for our branded blog-wear.”Â If the turnaround wasn’t just short of amazing, it’s the fact that we each select shirts to our liking (no two are alike), which means that she had to do a lot of “one-of-a-kinds”.
Are we another satisfied customer of GGC? You betcha! Would we recommend their services for your small business? We sure would.
